Best Death Metal Albums


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Nightmares Made Flesh - Bloodbath

Epic Album with damn brutal tracks. Try:

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

42 Realm of Chaos - Bolt Thrower
43 Consuming Impulse - Pestilence
44 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/

45 Massacre - from Beyond

Vary underrated death metal album,and band. This album should at least be in the top ten list. Ps... You guys, just cause death made an influential album, doesn't mean the whole catalog is the most influential death metal.

46 Ghost Reveries - Opeth
47 Swamplord - Kalmah

Best Melodic Death Metal album ever.

One of my favorite

48 From Wisdom to Hate - Gorguts
49 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?

You don't understand what I am saying!

Awesome Album! I recommit that to everybody who want to listen true death metal, buy this album!

54 Thresholds - Nocturnus
55 Spiritual Healing - Death

Everyone always overlooks this album, sure it isn't quite what Death are known for but it's nonetheless very heavy but thoughtful and the artwork is maybe my favourite of all time

56 The Jester Race - In Flames
57 Pierced From Within - Suffocation
58 The Stench of Redemption - Deicide

Such a beautiful album, should be in the ten twenty with bloodbath

What the hell? Why deicide best album is not here?
Deicide is one of the best DM band of All Time + Slayer is My Favorite band, But they are THRASH, Not Death!

59 Clandestine - Entombed
60 The Rack - Asphyx
