Best Death Metal Albums


The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Living Infinite - Soilwork
22 Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile

This album is one of the best. It definitely deserves a higher placement on this list.

One of the best ever. And the best ever Technical Death Metal album.

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 The Erosion of Sanity - Gorguts
26 Mental Funeral - Autopsy
27 Monolith of Inhumanity - Cattle Decapitation
28 Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious - Carcass

Necroticism would be on my top ten. - CosmicSea

29 Fiction - Dark Tranquillity
30 Storm of the Light's Bane - Dissection
31 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

32 Warpath - Six Feet Under

Best ever!

33 Holographic Universe - Scar Symmetry
34 Follow the Reaper - Children of Bodom

This should be number 1. Songs like Follow the reaper, every time I die, kissing the shadows, mask of sanity and many more... You just can't stop listening to the music created by Children Of Bodom...

What in the hell is this follow the reaper is 13 that should be 3-1 listed please people listen to that album and say what the hell is mean children of bodom= 1111111111111111

This is more power metal than death metal just saying.

But COB is melodic death..

35 Blessed Are the Sick - Morbid Angel
36 Focus - Cynic

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

37 Clayman - In Flames
38 Demigod - Behemoth

"i stick my Penis into the"

39 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!

40 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.
