DM is best when its absent of all the tech bullshit

eh depends, a lot of modern tech death bands are just constantly full throttle necrophagist type bullshit but dudes like atheist and later death realised the importance of dynamics and used technicality to push the genre even further

Atheist is a very rare case. How many tech bands are able to pull it off the way they did? I cant remember hearing anything else that combined tech and raw elements so well

This is one of the first death metal albums, so I equate it with some of the first black metal albums: shitty production with stripped down genre basics to set the style down for future bands (and themselves) to expand on

Digging: Stella Luna - Stargazer

cryptopsy perfected that style i think, they mesh raw brutality and horror with technical prowess so fucking well

or they did anyway. none so vile ftw.i still like atheist and later era death, but when it comes to technically impressive dm none so vile is the best there ever was

Digging: Weezer - Everything Will Be Alright in the End

But Bathory pioneered black metal so much better than how this pioneered death metal

why not human? its not as intense as UP for example but i think they hit the perfect mix of complex rhythms/time sigs and all that bollocks while still retaining some of the rawness of their earlier albums. TSoP is where they went too far in one direction

Unquestionable Presence is god-tier when it comes to metal, regardless of subgenre :]

also bands like necrophagist need to learn about moderation, i know all the kids dig the constant sweeps and hyper compressed drums but to true rockers like me its just a bunch of old tat, those bands also have no bottom end either as they are always up the top of the fretboard like twats

I'd agree when it comes to Epitaph, but I always loved Onset because I thought the "wank" actually slipped into the compositions perfectly. It felt more necessary than flashy
