|Best Old School Death Metal Albums|
My favorite pre-1995 death metal albums.
One of the first technical death metal albums, and it also incorporates strong influences of jazz. It seems I'm attracted to any metal with hints of jazz in it.
Blasphemy Made Flesh
I actually like this better than None So Vile, which is definately more technical than this, but BMF has more variety in instruments and vocals. Also that scream in Open Face Surgery blows me away every time.
Well I obviously like Elements, but this is still amazing, and I luckily got a chance to buy the deluxe edition, which comes with plenty of extra songs to make your extra five bucks worth it.
Scream Bloody Gore
Some consider it the first true death metal album, and while I disagree (Possessed), this album is still a solid slab of really old school Death Metal.
You guys probably knew it was gonna be here, I mean it's practically the most famous album on Sputnik, anyways yeah, Jazz-infused Death Metal for the win.
Death Shall Rise
While this isn't really a well-known album, it's definately a fun listen with it's constant supply of blistering riffs and death vocals.
While I'm pretty positive this is later than 1995, I personally don't care. I love it, and it' basically Cryptopsy with a better drummer and a more dreamy and serene feel to the music.
THE first death metal album, with strong hints of thrash in it, as well as early death vocals. A must have for any death metal fan.
Pierced from Within
An insanely fast album, filled with brutality and ridiculously fast solos.
Piece of Time
Blah, blah, blah... Jazz-Infused Death Metal, obviously their my favorite death metal band.
|3, 4, 5, and 8 all rule. And make the Cryptopsy album None So Vile instead of Blasphemy Made Flesh and this list would be even better.|
|What Hawks said. But 9 also deserves to be mentioned, it's just too damn awesome.|
|Atheist and Cynic are fucking ace, no question. List is great.|
|Thanks Atheist is currently my favorite Death Metal band, their just so damn good.|
|Half of this list isnt even OSDM.|
|technically everything but Lykathea Aflame is old school, so um, your wrong.|
|You like Morbid Angel? List needs it.|
|I've listened to them before... but not enough to judge them and put them on this list, but I've heard great things about them.|
|Altars of Madness is an amazing album that they made.|
|Yeah I've heard of it, but I have yet to buy it or download it.|
|I also hope that Atheist's new album will be as good as these.|
|What!!!? I didn't even know they were making a new one! Where have I been?|
|yep, Atheist and Cynic are full of win.|
|Natey that's your job, btw Chan needs your body tonight.|
|eh i don't really think Possessed is death metal, i'd call them thrash metal that influenced death metal. atheist cynic and death are amazing, and i'll check out cancer|
|Good to see Cancer on here. |
