Dark Metal Pt. 2

A continuation of the previous list which primarily featured black metal. rInstead of having rdoom metal as well, this time imma list some of my rfavorite death metal albums. The last list rfocused more on melodic and ratmospheric black metal (which I think is a redundant term ranyway). This rtime around the emphasis will be on the rawer sides of both black and rdeath rmetal, which are atmospheric in their own right. And of course no rlist of mine would be rcomplete without some melodic and/or cheesy rsymphonic shit, and I'll tag them so y'all know rwhich albums to avoid :D
1Bathory
Under the Sign of the Black Mark
2Beherit
Drawing Down the Moon


Oppressive atmosphere that makes you feel like your bones are being crushed in space.
3Dawn
Nær Solen Gar Nider For Evogher
4Nokturnal Mortum
The Voice of Steel
5Samael
Ceremony of Opposites
6Diabolical Masquerade
Nightwork


symphonic
7Ulver
Nattens madrigal - Aatte hymne til ulven


The archetypal underproduced raw black metal album. Though it is intentionally over-the-top in that regard, almost deafeningly so; this has some of the best riffs I've heard in all of bm.
8Lord Belial
Enter the Moonlight Gate


Mystical/evil atmosphere + tasteful female vocals = amazing album
9Carpathian Forest
Through Chasm, Caves And Titan Woods
10Sabbat (JPN)
The Dwelling


1 track album of pure evil
11Hate Forest
Purity


The heavier side to the dudes from Drudkh
12Blasphemy
Fallen Angel of Doom


primal af
13Obsidian Gate
The Nightspectral Voyage


symphonic
14Ildjarn
Forest Poetry
15Mayhem
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas
16Peste Noire
La Sanie des siecles - Panegyrique de la
17Veneficium
De Occulta Philosophia - A Missae Tenebrae


Symphonic. Featured on the last list, but it's so good I had to do it again. Extremely well executed.
18 Master's Hammer
Ritual
19Moonblood
Blut und Krieg


tell me the guitar and keyboard riffs in "In a Bloody Night of Fullmoon" don't sound like those in Burzum's "Det Som En Gang Var"
20Darkthrone

Oh and before I get into the dm, here's a few cool doom albums
47Corrupted
El Mundo Frio
48Doomsword
Let Battle Commence
49Uaral
Lamentos A Poema Muerto


doomfolk whoa
50Rippikoulu
Ulvaja


2014 funeral doom from old school death metallers
51Necrophobic
The Nocturnal Silence


In the last list, Bethlehem's Dark Metal was the centerpiece being in my opinion the perfect blend of black and doom metal. Here we have Necrophobic's magnum opus. When it comes to blackened death, nothing is better than this. It has all the aggression of death metal, but with an impeccably well-realized evil, black metal atmosphere.
52Portal
Outre


Possibly the most atmospheric album I've ever heard. It's like getting lost in the middle of a Lovecraftian horror, with absolutely no way out.

86Demilich

The Western Front
88Morbus Chron
Sweven


The last 2 years have been amazing for death metal, with Gorguts and Obliteration putting out near classics last year. 2014 has treated us to Morbus Chron's twisted, psychadelic opus. I'll be very surprised if a metal album ends up topping this, this year.
89Intestine Baalism
Banquet in the Darkness

While I love the unrestrained fury of SS, it's on MF where I like Autopsy the best. Can't get enough of that guitar tone, and that doom influence
93Augury
Fragmentary Evidence

94Adramelech
Psychostasia
95Entombed
Left Hand Path


Would be best swedeath if it weren't for Gorement. My neck usually hurts after jamming this
96Zealotry
The Charnel Expanse


Easily my favorite dm album of last year apart from the big 2 releases. Atmospheric and technical in equal measure.
97Eucharist
A Velvet Creation


melo
98Runemagick
The Supreme Force of Eternity
99Symptom
Caverns of Katabasis


2014 death/doom goodness
