Worst Technical Death Metal Bands

The Top Ten Worst Technical Death Metal Bands

1 Necrophagist Necrophagist is a German technical death metal band, founded and fronted by guitarist and vocalist Muhammed Suiçmez.

These guys ruined the genre as a whole. Flashy guitar playing and composition, but the songwriting has no depth and fails to compel. Merely guitar and bass wankery. - Caleb9000

2 Rings of Saturn Rings of Saturn is an American technical deathcore band from the Bay Area, California. The band was formed in 2009 and was originally just a studio project. They jokingly dubbed their genre as "aliencore".

Mostly the same as Necrophagist, but with a horrible vocalist, along with slightly more cohesive guitar work. - Caleb9000

3 Decrepit Birth Decrepit Birth is an American technical death metal band from Santa Cruz, California. They have released two studio albums through Unique Leader Records and one through Nuclear Blast, and a demo independently.

7 Neuraxis Neuraxis is a Canadian death metal band formed in Montreal in 1994. They play technical death metal and melodic death metal.

I actually really like the first two albums of this band, but then they just went down the path of wank, as have many others. - Caleb9000

8 Revocation Revocation is an American technical death metal band from Boston, Massachusetts founded by guitarist and vocalist David Davidson, bassist and vocalist Anthony Buda and drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne in 2000.

The somewhat inventive blend with thrash mostly just means palm muted masturbation, rather than tremolo picking. - Caleb9000

9 Decapitated Decapitated is a Polish technical death metal band formed in Krosno in 1996. The group comprises guitarist, founder and composer Wacław "Vogg" Kiełtyka, vocalist Rafał Piotrowski, bassist Paweł Pasek, and drummer Michał Łysejko.

One of the most overrated bands to walk the face of the earth. - Caleb9000
