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

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 All Guts, No Glory - Exhumed

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

6 Leprosy - Death

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

7 Human - Death
8 Severed Survival - Autopsy
9 Deicide - Deicide
10 Left Hand Path - Entombed

One of the best extreme metal albums ever. - Caleb9000

The Contenders

11 Symbolic - Death

13 Iniquitous - Rottrevore
14 Slumber of Sullen Eyes - Demigod
15 An Anatomy of the Beast - Intestine Baalism
16 Nightmares Made Flesh - Bloodbath


17 To Mega Therion - Celtic Frost
18 Sound of Perseverance - Death

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

This album is epic - Sabbath

It is epic but this is a list of "Pure Death Metal albums", it means no Technical Death Metal or Melodic Death Metal albums. - GREYBOYY

19 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.

20 Like an Ever Flowing Stream - Dismember
21 Psychostasia - Adramelech
22 Forced Into Atrocities - Deadly Spawn
23 Dechristianize - Vital Remains
24 Resurrection Through Carnage - Bloodbath
25 Mental Funeral - Autopsy
26 Spiritual Healing - Death

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

27 The Bleeding - Cannibal Corpse
28 Awakening the Liar - Hate
29 Close to a World Below - Immolation
30 Seven Churches - Possessed
31 Covenant - Morbid Angel

I'm shocked how far down the list this orgasmic piece of perfection is. This album is so flawless it should be a crime!.

32 Those Once Loyal - Bolt Thrower
33 Clandestine - Entombed

Why the hell is this so low on the list. I prefer this over left hand path!.
