Best Death Metal / Deathcore Albums of the 2000s

Stephan

The Top Ten

1 Neverbloom - Make Them Suffer

This album is just great. Every song is so heavy and the vocals are insane, so many good breakdowns. Maelstroms breakdown is mind blowing. Great album, but I like em all

2 As the Palaces Burn - Lamb of God

Amazing songwriting and powerful lyrics - Stephan

3 New Era of Corruption - Whitechapel

A re-imagination of the deathcore genre as a whole, with stunning lyrical and musical depth - Stephan

4 I Declare War - I Declare War

This album is like a hurricane, deadly, devastating, and destructive. And I love it. - Stephan

5 Mirrors - Breakdown of Sanity

So much aggressiveness in this album. Their breakdowns will melt your face and cut your balls automatically. Absolutely Breakdown of Sanity

BoS has a sound entirely their own, and any band that can fit 10 bass drops in one song deserve a place on this list - Stephan

6 Hate - Thy Art Is Murder

Definitely one of the classic and influential death core album big hits
