The most importent death metal album is obviously Scream Bloody Gore. After all, it was the first.


This is super fucking old but better help clear misinformation

Actually Possessed released a Death Metal album before Death did, but Death released a series of demos that were very much dm prototypes, so yeah

SBG was the first true dm album, it established everything even beyond the music (which it pretty much laid the groundwork for; Seven Churches was very early DM, but it lacked the slow-fast sections that Death brought to the table with this and Leprosy, and was much thrashier and not as pure as this), especially the gorey themes and dat album cover which is pretty much classic 80s DM imagery

Well, SBG defined dm more than pretty much any other dm, or Death, album, i'm just saying that it wasn't the first dm, technically speaking

Still, Death was the father of dm, that's no question

technically yeah you're right. but this was still the first "pure" death metal album i think

and my friend and I were talking about this the other day. How many other bands are so damn legendary that they have an entire genre named after them? i can't think of any. truly one of the all time greats.



...i say in a morbid angel thread

I don't think there is one, no.

I think it partly has to do with the fact that usually the primitive stages of any genre is always very loose and needs much more definition.

But Death completely defined almost everything there is to define in Death metal, image, sound, everything.
