Greatest Death Metal Closing Tracks


The Top Ten

1 Blackwater Park - Opeth UListen to Sample
2 Quantum Catastrophe - Brain Drill

11 minutes of Technical Death Metal madness (madness in a good way). Brain Drill don't slow down for a second. These guys are masters. One of the fastest bands ever.
The song is 16 minutes long but the last 5 minutes are sounds and silence (shows what comes after the Quantum Catastrophe) - Metal_Treasure

7 Weltseele - Obscura UListen to Sample
8 The Philosopher - Death

I appreciate this album and this song because it shows that death metal began developing its own sound - sound that is more metal and less thrashy, less hardcore punk, less grind, less core. Overall, less punk and more metal, which made room for more progressive and technical elements in death metal. - Metal_Treasure
