Best Pure Death Metal Albums

No Technical/Progressive, Melodic stuff, just Pure Death Metal Albums.

The Top Ten

1 Altars of Madness - Morbid Angel
2 Scream Bloody Gore - Death

Started it all (Seven Churches was mixed with Thrash and that's obvious), best "death growls" in any metal albums, listen to zombie ritual, denial of life and evil dead and enjoy the darkness. - GREYBOYY

The first death metal albums seven churches was sooo thrash metal
this is where it starts

3 Tomb of the Mutilated - Cannibal Corpse
4 Slowly We Rot - Obituary

Obituary proved that Death Metal is not always about speed and it can be slow but with dark and terrifying death growls but still awesome. - GREYBOYY

5 Human - Death
6 All Guts, No Glory - Exhumed

Kickass drms, high pitched screaming and breaknecking speed, interesting lyrics (gore lyrics that contain social issues, politics, relationships). - GREYBOYY

7 Cause of Death - Obituary

I'm beginning to get annoyed at the fact that people up top think death is the only death metal contribution to such a perfect genre. However... If you play this album out loud, you can hear the would of a thousand she metalheads simultaneously wetting themselves.

One of the best death metal albums, this should be in the top ten.

8 Severed Survival - Autopsy
9 Leprosy - Death

Love this is one, but it's very difficult to pick one favorite.

10 Spiritual Healing - Death

This is the most pure death metal album from Death, also their best album.
This should be one.

It s more pure death than any other beasides Leprosy, it s my least favourite but still one of the best albums in death metal, only Spiritual Healing Leprosy and SBG are pure death - Deako

The Contenders

11 Deicide - Deicide
12 Symbolic - Death
13 Left Hand Path - Entombed

One of the best extreme metal albums ever. - Caleb9000

14 Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious - Carcass

Some people call this album Grindcore but that's not true, it's Death Metal. - GREYBOYY

20 An Anatomy of the Beast - Intestine Baalism
21 Haunted - Six Feet Under

23 To Mega Therion - Celtic Frost
24 Sound of Perseverance - Death

I don't know exactly which genre this belongs to, but its definitely not pure death metal.
