Death Is Only The Beginning (Of This List)


Thumbs up: +1
This is a list of all the death metal albums I have listened to that I thought were at all worth remembering. Like my other genre lists, this is just a record of my own listening experience that I use for personal organization, not a definitive account of the best or all of the death metal out there; there will probably be albums or bands that are not death metal in the strictest sense. You'll find some OSDM, melodeath, tech death, death-doom, maybe a bit of deathcore, I don't know. Maybe some non-death metal albums by death metal bands that I put in here just because.

The organization is based entirely on my own rating, starting with a cluster of my favorite albums in a vague order of appreciation and then descending in alphabetically organized blocks from 9/10 through 6/10 ratings.
