Best Death Metal Albums


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Focus - Cynic

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

42 Clandestine - Entombed
43 Nightmares Made Flesh - Bloodbath

Epic Album with damn brutal tracks. Try:

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

44 Legion - Deicide

What is this doing at the bottom of the list!?


45 Warpath - Six Feet Under

Best ever!

46 Storm of the Light's Bane - Dissection
47 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?

48 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/

49 Realm of Chaos - Bolt Thrower
50 Consuming Impulse - Pestilence
51 Nespithe - Demilich

THOSE vocals - Caleb9000

52 Ghost Reveries - Opeth

My favorite death metal album. I'm more of a thrash metal guy, but I love Opeth. This album is a perfect mix of ballads and heavy death metal with prog metal too

53 Swamplord - Kalmah

Best Melodic Death Metal album ever.

One of my favorite

54 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

55 Scars of the Crucifix - Deicide
56 Maximum Violence - Six Feet Under

This is the album that practically reincarnated in the late 90's

57 Unborn - Six Feet Under

You don't understand what I am saying!
Best death album ever who six feet under release at 2013

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

Great performance for six feet under!
They will be famous soon for this album!

58 Are You Dead Yet? - Children of Bodom

What? This album is not even in the list! Greatest album.
In your face
Punch me I bleed
Are you dead yet
