21 Unquestionable Presence - Atheist

I wonder what an atheist would say the unquestionable presence is. Funny combo.

22 None So Vile - Cryptopsy

Listen to this and agree: This is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, death metal albums ever crafted.

Should be higher - Deako

How the hell was this no on the list until I added it? It's a MASTERPIECE, production suits the music perfectly, guitars are amazing, bass is utilized very well, Flo must be one of the best/fastest drummers on the planet and last but not least, the vocals performed by Lord Worm are so brutal and amazing! He sounds so evil and also sounds like he's suffering as if there's someone trying to sing while mutilating themselves! If you haven't heard it before go listen to it right now!

23 Deicide - Deicide
24 Effigy of the Forgotten - Suffocation

Earth-shatteringly heavy! Seriously this album can cause earthquakes when blasted at Max volume from a large stereo system!

25 Nihility - Decapitated
26 The Erosion of Sanity - Gorguts
27 Monolith of Inhumanity - Cattle Decapitation

Great album but it s grindcore... anyway if you want to give a larger view u can consider it grind death so death - Deako

28 Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious - Carcass

Necroticism would be on my top ten. - CosmicSea

29 Kill - Cannibal Corpse

Amazing album, well suited production, some of the best riffs, the way the band builds up the songs and add complex structure is amazing, looking forward to their next album they put out.

The only cannibal corpse album I love. EP was good too but that's it when it comes to CC in my opinion

30 Clandestine - Entombed
31 Seasons in the Abyss - Slayer

I love slayer but this shouldn't be on the list. Slayer isn't death metal. It's thrash metal.

Other than mario the vigilant Christian, who is unintentionally hilarious, no one thinks slayer is death metal. Great album, though.

I absolutely love this album, but what moron would consider slayer a death metal band

When will people realize Slayer isn't death metal?

32 Slaughter of the Soul - At the Gates

Now here is a band that is better than half the band's on this list. If you like them check out skit system and behind enemy lines. Those two bands are punk but are really heavy

This is a masterpiece deserves to be better ranked!

33 Demigod - Behemoth

"i stick my Penis into the"

34 Focus - Cynic

The single most unique and creative album of all time in any genre.

35 Crimson - Edge of Sanity

Crimson is an album that contains a single 40 minute song that combines progressive rock with death metal. Picture King Crimson, but heavier and darker. This song is long, but never feels that way. It's constantly evolving and tells a wonderful tale to boot. Belongs in the top 10 death metal albums and songs.

36 Nightmares Made Flesh - Bloodbath

Epic Album with damn brutal tracks. Try:

Soul Evisceration, Eaten, The Ascension & Year of the Cadaver Race - TrappedInsideIt

37 Warpath - Six Feet Under

Best ever!

38 Storm of the Light's Bane - Dissection
39 From Mars to Sirius - Gojira

This isn't Death metal... It's groove.. And the lyrics of Gojira would more suggest that it's life metal! But it's still a brilliant album and one of the best metal albums of the 2000's in my opinion! M/

40 Realm of Chaos - Bolt Thrower
