This is the go-to death/grind album any death metal head should have

How is this album not 1st in the list?

Really best production classic

For me it is their best álbum, because of its sound, and it is the perfect bridge for other genre�'s fans into Grindcore.

The most extreme album in history

4 Utopia Banished

A classic grindcore fast album great vocals love napalm still fast and loud

The older they get, the more aggressive they become. This album is amazing and should be near the top of the list, if not first.

Most Brutal album in the World!

The Contenders

11 Time Waits for No Slave

The melodic guitars combined with grindcore works great. The Code is Red... Long Live the Code, Utilitarian, and Words From the Exit Wound are close contenders, but they lose. Diatribes and Fear, Emptiness, Despair are also great.

Time Waits for No Slave is my favorite.

12 Smear Campaign

Why is it last? When all is said and done is one of their best. The album is just brilliant.

Should be No. 1

13 The Code Is Red... Long Live The Code

Utterly brilliant, underrated and.

14 Words from the Exit Wound
15 Death by Manipulation

16 Order of the Leech

This album is brutally fast 5 songs in particular
continuing the wall on stupidity
iceing on the hate
Forewarned Is Disarmed and Lowest Common Denominator
the The Great Capitulator
the only downer is the 10 min gap on the end of The Great Capitulator I don't know why you would do that on such a great song
