Top 10 Death Metal Songs of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

1 Blackwater Park - Opeth

I agree with cjWriter1997 - I also think that progressive and technical death metal bands are more interesting and show better musicianship/music skills. They might be harder to get into though (increased complexity). - Metal_Treasure

I used to not like death metal/extreme metal that much, but after listening to bands like Opeth and Meshuggah, I’m starting to like the genre a lot more.

The more progressive and technical death metal bands are usually the best. Another one to check out is Gojira. - cjWriter1997
