Top Ten Death Metal Subgenresrock2metal This list includes all the metal genres derived from death metal, even if they are fusion genres.
The Top Ten
Technical death metal is absolutely amazing. It makes an already amazing genre so much better. With bands like Death, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Beyond Creation, Necrophagist, Archespire, Nile, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Spawn of Possession, Decapitated, Origin, and Obscura, technical death metal is by far the best death metal subgenre.
Insane subgenre! Hour of Penance and Origin are the first two that come to mind. - Matt3

Not a music genre - just group of Death Metal bands who use Christian lyrics - Metal_Treasure
Brutal vocals, sweep picking and blast beats galore.
Nile and Suffocation would fall under this category (Brutal-Tech), Atheist and Gorguts are Fusion-Tech while Cynic and Death are Prog-Tech. - Brobusky
Abominable Putridity, Pathology, Putrid Pile, Cephalotripsy, Katalepsy, Kraaniun, Vomit Remnants, Vulvectomy, Acranius, Ingested - ryanrimmel
Bands include Naglfar and Dissection.
Dark, brutal and melodic!
Basically it's early Fear Factory - SteelCity99
Best subgenre in my humble opinion. Vader rules!
