Top 10 Technical Death Metal Bands

Okay first of all this is my OPINION, and as we are all aware, bands can be put in and out of different genres so here is why a few bands that you might think should be on this list, aren't. Death is going to be classified as Death Metal. Arsis is half melodic Death metal, so I don't feel right putting it on this list. Meshuggah is experimental whatever, so I don't think I can put it on here either. Nile is Death Metal, I don't feel too comfortable putting them on this. Bloodbath will be classified as Death Metal as well. SECOND OF ALL, this list is in no particular order, as I could not decide how to rank them. I think thats all, but I might be forgetting some.
1 Decapitated

Every one of their songs shows technical prowess and they're all memorable.
2 Atheist

I don't like this band as much as I should. I don't know what it is, I can't get too into them. But I acknowledge that they are pretty much the most influential Tech Death band ever.
3 The Faceless

My favorite Tech Death band.
4 Cynic

Focus is a tech death masterpiece. Traced in Air is not tech death, but it's impossible to deny the effects of focus on tech death.
5 Necrophagist

They have one of the absolute fastest guitar players, and despite only having two albums out, they are highly influential as well.
6 Pestilence

My least favorite of the Big 3 of Atheist, Cynic, And Pestilence. But Spheres is a masterpiece.
7 Gorguts

They are very influential but I can't get into them as much as the others listed here.
8 Psycroptic

One of the best bands to come out of australia, they're one of my more favorite tech death artists, despite not being nearly as influential as the others. The last two releases were particularly good.
9 Spawn Of Possession

Cabinet is an awesome album, as well as Noctambulant, can't wait for their third album
10 Cryptopsy

I personally don't see what the deal is with this one, but they're very influential. DO NOT GET THEIR LATEST ALBUM.
