Top Ten Death Metal Questions to Ask Users of TheTopTens


The Top Ten

1 Death or Possessed?

It's easy, Death. Possessed is a good band, but no Death Metal band will ever match Death. Chuck has the most distinctive and best voice, and they are very technical and almost progressive - ryanrimmel

I am glad this one is here. Possessed are the most underrated, and in my opinion, the best, death metal band. - gemcloben

Of course it is Death but Possessed were too short lived.

2 Corpsegrinder or Chris Barnes?

For me it's corpsegrinder. I can only handle Chris Barnes in small doses, like in early Cannibal and Six Feet Under - ryanrimmel

Corpsegrinder. His songs are better - Lucretia

Corpsegrinder. I think some of CC's best stuff has come in their later years with Corpsegrinder. - IronSabbathPriest

Because his voice is great.
(I also love Barnes' vocals in the oldschool
CC albums or in SixFeetUnder)
Also George is such a cool geek (WOW)
& he's funny - CannibalCorpse

8 Best Death Metal Album?

I would say Symbolic by Death. Yeah, it's cliche but I don't care. Runner up would be Monolith of Inhumanity by Cattle Decapitation - ryanrimmel

I love you by Barney the Purple Dinosaur wait sorry wrong one I meant Still Life by Opeth

There are so many! I'd say Human, Symbolic, and The Sound of Perseverance by Death. - AngryByrd

9 Morbid Angel or Obituary?

Both fabulous. But I say Obituary because they've been better in recent years. - IronSabbathPriest

No one does slow, creeping riffs like obituary

Morbid Angel easily, but Obituary is a great band - ryanrimmel

10 Dying Fetus or Cryptopsy?

Cryptopsy are better overall but Destroy the Opposition destroys all albums from both bands.

Despite their name, Dying Fetus is an awesome band, that's my answer - ryanrimmel

The Contenders

11 Amon Amarth or Arch Enemy?

I also prefer Amon Amarth but I'm really curious how Jeff Loomis will change Arch Enemy (if any). Jeff just joined Arch Enemy. - Metal_Treasure

ARCH ENEMY! Their singer is badass! And especially their newest songs!

Amon Amarth. As cool as Arch Enemy is, I think I they are overrated - ryanrimmel

12 Nile or Brain Drill?

I like Brain Drill, but they are nothing compared to Nile - ryanrimmel

American technical death metal bands. - Metal_Treasure

Nile. - Metalhead1997

I can't pick. They're just too good.

Tough question actually.
Katalapsy,Disgorge,Abominable Putridity,
Disentomb...One of these maybe. - CannibalCorpse
