Best Symphonic Death Metal Bands


The Top Ten

1 Septicflesh Septicflesh

SepticFlesh surpasses every other band in any genre and it is an understatement to label them as just Symphonic Death Metal even though that is what in essence they are. It's just the most Artistic, Philosophical, Magnifiscent, Dark, Morbid and Brutally Crushing music you will ever hear with 'Anubis' being their biggest masterpiece in Metal or Music history in general. No band can compare to these Greek Titans.

They are really awesome! I don't need to describe them because words aren't enough - nooreldeen

Septicflesh and Fleshgod Apocalypse got me into this genre

The best symphonic death metal band no doubt! Check their album the agony and you will that they really deserve the 1st spot :).. - nooreldeen

This band is just incredible, with two vocalists, they really got me into this genre, Make Them Suffer's NEVERBLOOM album is kind of similar but only like 30%, not as priceless. I love this band, but I am yet to try the others on this list!
