The Contenders: Page 5
If you know the death metal history Dismember should among the top 5 five on this list.
Why are so many great and/or essential bands that low?!
Pure Death metal. heavy/epic classical theme has been injected into massive melodies. They know what to do.
Should be top 3V 2 Comments
They have been around for about 30 years. Their self titled is amazing.V 1 Comment
How where they not on this list until now?
All of there songs are amazing but there cover of black tears was unreal and of no avail was perfect!
Just listen to "A Dying Ember" and you'll realize why this band is the best death metal band.
Almost every song is great. Should be in top tenV 2 Comments
Not Death Metal at all. - GREYBOYY
Gorgoroth is Black Metal, they should not be in this list.
Gorgoroth should b number 1 in the list. Look at the voice. Lyrics. Drum blasting. Heavy guitar riffs. What more you need than this
It should b no1 in the list. Look at lyrics. Voice. Drum blasting. Heavy guitar riffs. What more you need than this. Listen to 'the devil is calling'
Aborted must be higher! One of the most brutal, craziest deathgrind bands out there - ryanrimmel
Wintersun 72 pfff haha Wintersun is one of the best at least better than children of bodom, amon amarth,arch enemy, behemoth,...
I disagree. I also like Wintersun, but in my opinion they aren't in the Top 100 of Death Metal. In Melodic Death Metal they certainly are in Top 50, but that's just a small part of a great genre. - Juli
They mixed Black Metal with Death Metal and Melodic Death Metal, sometimes they were labeled Melodic Black Metal. - GREYBOYY
Not death metal but heavy and badass! Should be higher on this list
BAck street boys should be on number 1 slot they are so brutal, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!V 2 Comments
I am disgusted that these guys are not in the top 10, let alone at #99. My favorite death metal band of all time, MAYBE barring Gojira.
99 really?!?! Bands like a job for a cowboy and white chapel should not be here! Malevolent creation is easily one of my favourite death metal bands of all time. Listen to the Ten Commandments album. It'll blow your mind!
Broken Hope needs to higher up on this list, they have a unique sound that other death metal bands do not have
The Crown is a GREAT, underrated Swedish Melodic Death Metal Band. Eternal Death and DeathRace King are outstanding. They had a sick DM vocalist in Johan Lindstrom, but 2002's Crowned in Terror is outstanding! With the one and only Tomas Lindberg (of At The Gates fame) filling in on lyrics & vocals. They had a comeback album in 2010, with a new vocalist, Jonas StalHammar, which was admirable, though not mind blowing. Still, this little known band deserves much more recognition. They are the closest Swedish DM band to At The Gates, and blow In Flames and even Arch Enemy away. Check out their earlier works!
Very underrated. These guys were the definition of Death Metal. Not to mention, the keyboards are excellent in their sound. Although their latest album isn't so great, they're still the best.
Absolutely brutal and badass! Matti Way is one of the most powerful death metal vocalists. - ryanrimmel
Best wigger slam band of all time
Guttural. awesome, especially mixing different techniques (even djent) always the way it sounds very originally. Love AP.
