Best Technical Death Metal Albums

The Top Ten
1 Human - Death Human - Death Product Image

People who don't like this lack comprehension.

Suicide Machine and Lack of Comprehension is great

Its an amazing Prog Death Album, but its definitely not "Technical". Many think Progressive and Technical means the same thing, but actually its not, it just overlaps very often.
While Death's later albums are certainly not Technical but Progressive, e.g. Nile/Suffocation are certainly Technical but not very Progressive.

Nevertheless: Great album.
Just doesn't fit here in my opinion.

2 Epitaph - Necrophagist Epitaph - Necrophagist Product Image

Human by death cannot be as technical as this what hell people this should be #1


3 Unquestionable Presence - Atheist Unquestionable Presence - Atheist Product Image

Master class jazzy death metal. Insane album.

4 Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile Product Image

This and Epitaph should be #1 and #2. The only Death album that should be on here is Human.

The best ever Technical Death Metal album.

Most brutal. Technical but not fast melodies.

Amazing album!

5 None So Vile - Cryptopsy None So Vile - Cryptopsy Product Image

None so Brutal. Period...

Truly a vile album. Structurally and technically amazing.

6 Focus - Cynic Focus - Cynic Product Image

One of my favourite debut albums!

Best metal album of all time.

One of the best of all time.

7 Individual Thought Patterns - Death Individual Thought Patterns - Death Product Image
8 Pierced From Within - Suffocation Pierced From Within - Suffocation Product Image

Technical death at it's best. This album hits you like derailed train.

Easily the best. A legend.

9 Symbolic - Death Symbolic - Death Product Image

This is the best album on the list, but it isn't tech death. In fact, it's kinda hard to categorize this. It has elements of prog, death, thrash and trad and even doom, but its all more atmospheric than most of the stuff in those genres.

10 Spiritual Healing - Death Spiritual Healing - Death Product Image

How the h3ll Spiritual Healing is Technical Death Metal? It's a 100% Death Metal album.

This is called Death Metal, not Technical Death Metal.

The Contenders
11 Winds of Creation - Decapitated Winds of Creation - Decapitated Product Image

Incredible album and even more incredible regarding that the band members were circa 16 y/o, when they recorded this...
