Best Technical Death Metal BandsMetalFoREVer1228
The Top Ten
Chuck gave birth to a new kind of music by mixing some technical death metal issues in a progressive mood. One of the best ever.
R.I.P Chuck Schuldiner... He's everything to tech death metal
Greatest band of all time! - Oliwally
The best forever!V 4 Comments
Nile should be #1
Hmm, Death, Nile & Necrophagist tied with 13%. Honestly, while I love Death, it isn't really tech-death. in my opinion I like Nile more, but Necrophagist is good as well.
The best in my book. - Metal_Treasure
Nile has insane riffs and super fast drumming. It deserve to be no. 1 on this list.V 2 Comments
Solos are sooo good, and the riffs are punchy as hell
This band still the best tech deth for me

Listen to stabwound and try to air guitar it then we'll talk (i wont take any responsibilty for broken fingers)V 4 Comments
Overrated band. Beyond Creation and Gorguts are much superior to this joke of a band.
The band that is the closest to perfection - Metal_Treasure
Orbital elements, infinite rotation and universe momentum!V 1 Comment
That name though. lmao - CaptDeadeye
A death metal band that incorporates sweep picking and tapping. Pure epicness.
My favourite band
Love them they put the b in brutalV 1 Comment
Technical and brutal yet melodic
One of the new masters of the genre - Metal_Treasure
This band will make it big! got both CDs and every single song is killer. This band can go so hard! And slow down but be so catchy the whole time! And they sound just so good live! Wicked dudes!
One of the greatest tech death bands without having the need to constantly play as technically as possible just for shots and giggles. Provides a brutal and heavy atmosphere and throughout all their style changes have still remained the greatest tech death band. I love Death very much but I feel that they don't deserve #1. They had some tech elements in their later works but they were never tech death. It's like putting Metallica as #1 on a best death metal bands list... they're a great band, but not death metal.
Although this band has seen many changes threw the years Classic Lord Worm is what I think everyone should be listening to first! Canadian musicians gets so much less fame than American musicians, it's too bad. Cryptopsy all the way! If you can sing a verse of the bible in metal and sound so deathly. Congratulations your #1 in my book
First two albums were game changing.
Pleiades Dust. Say no more.
Echo everyone else, Relentless Mutation ripped my face off.
I get why they're low, they haven't been around that long, but jesus christ Relentless Mutation is the best tech album I've ever heard. If they keep it up they will go down alongside Necrophagist as the best of all time
Relentless Mutation is the best tech death album since Necrophagist's Epitaph.
What!? They deserve to be in the top ten. Think I'm wrong? They only have 2 albums thus far (1/1/17) so I highly suggest you go listen to them, they are probab
I love this band, really, but for me, it is not technical death, it is much more a prog/death band. So I understand why they are so low. (But this is clearly the best metal band of all times)
Well... I am very disappointed that the most influential technical death metal band is not in the top ten, or even near it. Listen to "The Heaviest Matter in the Universe" for something heavy, "Flying Whales" for like eighteen movements, and "L'ephant Sauvage" for a beautiful representation of their unique sound.
Why is Gojira so low? Seriously one of the heaviest bands out there. And not a single bad album at that!
Why is this so low...
One of the subgenre's pioneers sitting at 15th? nO. jUST nO. - AdamDestructorJr.
Lol@ necrophagist being number 2, just sweep picking wankery. Suffocation easily deserves spot 2
Come on, they need to be at least top 5, they released a masterpiece of an album when they were still teenagers, not to mention their later work such as organic hallucinosis which is also a masterpiece and Vogg is a riff machine enough said!
Everyone who voted Death doesn't know that Technical Death Metal means.
Ever since I made this list I've been exposed to more tech-death bands old and new and these guys are one of the best bands so far. Their latest album has good songs that mix tech-death and prog metal with some jazz influences that sounded sick as hell. The album before that was just pure, ruthless tech-death - MetalFoREVer1228
They are really very good, deserve to be higher than 19 - Metal_Treasure
I LOVE Death, Opeth, Meshuggah, and Between the Buried and Me is even my favorite band atm, but none are tech death. These guys are underrated, think of a more intense Necrophagist with better riffs
Quite disappointed that these guys aren’t higher! I am very fond of their album ‘Incurso’ particularly the song ‘Apparition.’
The integration of beautiful classical melodies with the brutalness of their metal riffage, whilst remaining very technically impressive is magnificent.
Spawn of Possession are a prime example of how well classical and metal can work together- like they were meant to be. As a classically-trained musician I am proud.
The description is incorrect, this band is a fusion of *classical music* with technical death metal to create symphonic death metal.
I love this band though.
Yes, it isn't correct - they just play symphonic technical death metal. - Metal_Treasure
They are the first technical death metal
These guys are insanely technical and underrated, piece of time was probs the first technical death metal album, if you want a good example of this band listen to "piece of time" and "no truth".
Just a good tech death band, should be higher as some of the bands on this list aren't tech death, (still good though).
They don’t know how how to write a song - mool
Origin isn't even on the list?!?!
I am offended. What is anyone thinking?
Personally I my top tech-death band, by far. - Xenosapien
They aren't technical death metal, they are only progressive death metal. - Metal_Treasure
Should be much higher, technical to a t!
Great band! Sophisticated yet brutal tech-death - ryanrimmel
A very solid band. And they really play Technical Death Metal unlike many other bands on this list.
I'm listening to them right now, as I'm writing this comment. - Metal_Treasure
Definitely one of the best technical bands out there, very very good band
This band is very strongly keeping the torch of metal ignited. Every release from them is phenomenal. Revocation is the new Death: never releasing a dud. - surgeonsanic
Instrumental technical metal supergroup. Br00tal and technical. - Metal_Treasure
