Best Old School Death Metal Albums

My favorite pre-1995 death metal albums.
1Atheist
Elements


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.
2Cryptopsy
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.
3Atheist
Unquestionable Presence


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.
4Death
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.
5Cynic
Focus


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.
6Cancer
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.
7Lykathea Aflame
Elvenefris


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.
8Possessed
Seven Churches


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.
9Suffocation
Pierced from Within


An insanely fast album, filled with brutality and ridiculously fast solos.
10Atheist
Piece of Time


Blah, blah, blah... Jazz-Infused Death Metal, obviously their my favorite death metal band.
