Best Technical Death Metal Albums

The Top Ten

1 Human - Death

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

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


3 Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile

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!

4 Unquestionable Presence - Atheist

Master class jazzy death metal. Insane album.

5 None So Vile - Cryptopsy

None so Brutal. Period...

Truly a vile album. Structurally and technically amazing.

6 Focus - Cynic

One of my favourite debut albums!

Best metal album of all time.

One of the best of all time.

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

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

Easily the best. A legend.

9 Symbolic - Death

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

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 Newcomers

? The Erosion of Sanity - Gorguts

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