Best Non-Melodic Death Metal Songs

This is just a personal opinion, but I think Melodic Death Metal diverged from Death Metal more and more and now sounds like an very own steady genre and not like a subgenre of Death Metal (in most cases).

So here is a list of songs, in a "genuine" Death Metal style, strongly rooted in the old Death Metal sound and keeping its brutality.

> Melodic Death Metal
> everything else not Death Metal related

Also: Be careful with Progressive Death Metal songs. Many bands are labeled this way, but are actually "Progressive Melodic Death Metal" (the "Melodic" is often just left out, because the name is very long).

So songs like Opeth's Godhead's Lament (which is obviously very melodic) are NOT allowed in this list, while songs like Death's Lack of Comprehension are.

> Old-School Death Metal
> Brutal Death Metal (incl. Slam)
> Technical Death Metal
> Deathgrind/Goregrind
> Death/Thrash Metal
> Blackened Death Metal
> Death/Doom Metal

Also: Some songs from bands like Dismember are Old-School Death Metal with some occasional melodic parts in it, while still being a pure Death Metal song. Such songs are also allowed.
