2NileNile is an American technical death metal band from Greenville, South Carolina, United States, formed in 1993. Their music and lyrics are inspired by Ancient Egyptian/Near Eastern mysticism, history, religion, and ancient art, as well as the works of H.P. Lovecraft.
3SuffocationSuffocation is an American technical death metal band that was formed in 1988 in Centereach, Long Island, New York, United States.

Best band death metal ever created. Best death metal a band's ever created. This band was the inception of the genre of 'brutal death metal' and has not given into switching up their sound according to any trend, carefully choosing the best and most appropriate replacement musicians when one leaves the band. Genius and catchy, sporadic and monumentally heavy, they somehow continue to perform the best death metal on Earth to this day. "Pierced From Within" is the best album of the genre, and of any music at all. Suffocation has innovated so much and kicked down so many musical doors, all of the best bands are influenced by Suffocation, without whose influence, death metal would be light years behind.

4RevocationRevocation is an American technical death metal band from Boston, Massachusetts founded by guitarist and vocalist David Davidson, bassist and vocalist Anthony Buda and drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne in 2000. Originally known as Cryptic Warning, the band changed its name to Revocation in 2006. Revocation more.

Since their formation in 2007, the group have built a reputation as one of the most savage death metal acts to come out of the UK for a long time and have built a large fanbase within their country as well as in the US, Australia, more.

An awesome underground Slam Death Metal band with slight Deathcore influences. I am cringing making this list right now due to all the kickass bands on tbis lineup - ryanrimmel
