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

No, they aren't Technical Death Metal. In the 90s they became more progressive but never been technical. - Metal_Treasure

Godfather of Death metal. We salute you.
R.I.P Legend.

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 books. - Metal_Treasure

Nile is just pure awesomeness. enough said

Steffen Kummerer is by far the god of Tch Death

5 Dying Fetus Dying Fetus Dying Fetus is an American death metal band originally from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Formed in 1991, the group is known for their consistently hook-laden song structures, characterized by blast beats, complex riffing, slam riffs and heavy breakdowns.

My favourite band

Well,at least fetus deserve no.5

6 Cryptopsy Cryptopsy Cryptopsy is a Canadian technical death metal band from Montreal, Quebec, formed in 1988. The band has sold over 300,000 records.

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.

7 Suffocation Suffocation Suffocation is an American technical death metal band that was formed in 1988 in Centereach, Long Island, New York, United States.
8 Beyond Creation

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!

12 The Faceless The Faceless The Faceless is an American technical death metal band from the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.

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

13 Fleshgod Apocalypse Fleshgod Apocalypse Fleshgod Apocalypse is an Italian Death metal band. Formed in 2007, the group resides in Perugia and are currently signed to Willowtip Records and Nuclear Blast. The band is known for their fusion of metal with technical death metal.

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.

14 Atheist Atheist Atheist is a progressive/technical death metal band from Florida, founded in 1984 by drummer Steve Flynn and singer/guitarist Kelly Shaefer.

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".

15 Brain Drill Brain Drill Brain Drill is an American technical death metal band formed in 2005 from Ben Lomond, California. They are signed to Metal Blade Records and released their full-length debut album entitled Apocalyptic Feasting on February 5, 2008.

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

17 Gojira Gojira Gojira is a progressive metal band from Bayonne, France. The band was known as Godzilla until 2001. Gojira is composed of Joe Duplantier on vocals and rhythm guitar, his brother Mario Duplantier on drums, Christian Andreu on lead guitar, and Jean-Michel Labadie on bass.

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 this so low...
