Recs For Moreira: Death Metal

So Moreira wants to sample the more modern, accessible treats that DM rhas to offer. Hope you rrrrrdig some of these m/
1Abnormality
Contaminating The Hive Mind


This is some very good, female-fronted brutal death
2Amon Amarth
With Oden on Our Side


The best album from one of the most consistent melodeath bands around
3Archspire
All Shall Align


Hyper-technical, crystal clean production, plenty of replay value, has all the elements that a beginner to tech-death could want
4Atheist
Piece of Time


Not a modern release but I figured I'd include it anyway, this is Atheist's most easily digestible album before the jazz-fusion elements become more prominent on their later albums. You might dig
5Augury
Fragmentary Evidence


Not too dissimilar to your prog-DxC stuff but much less gay
6Before the Dawn
Soundscape of Silence


The best album from a fairly underrated band. Simple, by-the-books melodeath
7 Be'lakor
Stone's Reach


The best melodeath album of the 21st century, if you dug the first track you'll no doubt love the whole thing
8Benighted
Icon


Excellent modern tech-death, you'll love the vocals especially
9Beyond Creation
The Aura


Ignore the sudden wave of hate this album's been receiving, this is one the best examples of modern tech there is.
10Bolt Thrower
Those Once Loyal


Heavy yet melodious, Bolt Thrower is a perfect band for a DM beginner to get into
11Brutality
Screams of Anguish


Not a modern release, but being one of the best DM albums ever has to count for something. Not inaccessible in the slightest, you should dig.
12Cannibal Corpse
Kill


No beginner DM list would be complete without Cannibal Corpse
13Carcass
Heartwork


Again, this is an oldie but a goodie. One of the earliest examples of melodeath, and also one of the best
14Cattle Decapitation
Monolith of Inhumanity


By far the best thing this band ever put out, it's technical, brutal and surprisingly melodic, you should dig
15Cerebral Bore
Maniacal Miscreation


More female fronted brutal death, heavy and fun
16Cryptopsy
Cryptopsy


Cryptopsy's second most accessible album after The Unspoken King, but that album sucks a fat one so this is probs a better starting point
17Dark Tranquillity
Character


Top notch album from one of the most integral pioneers of melodeath, must listen
18Death
The Sound of Perseverance


I know you've heard death before and didn't dig too hard, but maybe this will change your mind
19Decapitated
Winds of Creation


Your age is no excuse for your core-obsession, half this band couldn't legally drive when they made this album and it rules hard
20Decrepit Birth
Diminishing Between Worlds


Very brutal and very techincal, not much in the way of writing though
21Dismember
Like an Everflowing Stream


Not a modern release but it's obligatory so yeah
22Entombed
Left Hand Path


Same as above, wouldn't be surprised if you dug this real hard either
23Fallujah
The Harvest Wombs


One of the most promising modern tech bands, spacey atmospheres, noodly guitar work and excellent vocals
24Gorement
The Ending Quest


Not a modern release, but I have a sneaky suspicion you'll like this. Haunting and melodic, but not melodeath, must listen
25Gorod
Leading Vision


Tied with Benighted's "Identisick" for the best tech-death of 2006, and one of the best of the decade
26Havok (SWE)
Statues of Sisyphus


Up and coming tech band that I'll think you'll like, give them a go
27Hate
Solarflesh


Just more solid modern DM, does nothing new though
28Hour of Penance
Sedition


Like Fleshgod Apocalypse but not as obnoxiously bloated, if you dug Oracles you'll like this even more
29Hypocrisy
End of Disclosure


Latest album from a band with a solid discography all the way through, if you dig this, check their other stuff too
30In Flames
The Jester Race


Obligatory melodeath classic
31Immolation
Majesty and Decay


Close to a World Below will probably make you wet your pants and we can't have that, so start with this and develop a taste for this band first, then check their classics
32In Mourning
Shrouded Divine


Proggy, doomy, melodeathy goodness, you should dig this pretty easy
33Insomnium
Above the Weeping World


Insomnium's best album, modern melodeath masterpiece
34Katalepsy
Autopsychosis


One of the best DM albums so far this year, a relentless assault on your senses from start to finish
35Monstrosity
Millenium


Not modern but whatever, great old-school tech that's as good as the cover is fucking atrocious
36Morbid Angel
Altars of Madness


Absolutely essential so it's on here regardless of the facts it's 24 years old
37Mors Principium Est
...And Death Said Live


More melodeath, in retrospect this was one of my faves from 2012, even if I didn't hear it until January
38Necrophagist
Onset of Putrefaction


The pioneers of noodlecore, if you want hyper-technical guitarwork then this is your album
39Nile
Those Whom The Gods Detest


Hhahaahahah he rec'd Nile what a gaycunt!! XDXD
40Obscura
Cosmogenesis


This band isn't as good as the album they stole their name from but they're still pretty great so yeah, check them out
41Odious Mortem
Cryptic Implosion


Hyper-technical DM band that don't give a fuck about writing they just like melting faces
42Omnium Gatherum
Beyond


More nice melodeath, does nothing new but it's solid
43Opeth
My Arms, Your Hearse


C'mon it's Opeth
44Persefone
Shin-Ken


Progressive symphonic DM from Andorra of all places, have a strong feeling you'll dig this
45Psycroptic
The Scepter of The Ancients


One of Australia's premier extreme metal acts, very interesting vocal-work as well
46Septicflesh
The Great Mass


Bombastic, overdramatic, symphonic DM that you'll either love or detest
47Spawn of Possession
Incurso


The elite disapprove of this band but fuck those guys
48Suffocation
Pinnacle of Bedlam


Newest offering from Suffocation and by a mile their most accessible, if you dig then listen to Pierced From Within and Effigy of The Forgotten because they rule
49Ulcerate
Everything is Fire


Not the most accessible album in the world, but give it a chance and you'll be immersed in a hyper-complex wall of noise, must listen
50Vital Remains
Dechristianize


Benton's a shit vocalist but the musicianship on this is fantastic, you might dig
