Death Metal Of The 2010s

Dispelling the idea that only 90s DM can be good. Range of styles included, rlist is not ranked, all rrrrralbums released within the decade.
1Bolzer
Aura


Blackened DM.
2Coffins
The Fleshland


Death/Doom from Japan.
3Backyard Mortuary
Lure of The Occult


Old School DM.
4Krypts
Unending Degradation


Murky, festering old school death.
5Encoffination
Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh


Crushing death/doom
6Ulcerate
Vermis


Probably my fav album of the 2010s so far (sorry Gorguts), the denses, sludgiest thing Ulcerate have done yet.
7Carcass
Surgical Steel


Very akin to Heartwork, another solid album for Carcass's gleaming catalog.
8Gorguts
Colored Sands


No description needed, it's Gorguts.
9Vasaeleth
All Uproarious Darkness


Murky blackened DM.
10Autopsy
The Headless Ritual


Different to their old stuff but rules very very hard, riffs galore.
11Kalmah
Seventh Swamphony


Melodeath.
12Imprecation
Satanae Tenebris Infinita


Old school DM.
13Lantern
Below


Death metal with atmosphere from the Kings of death metal with atmosphere, the Finns.
14Antediluvian
Septentrional Theophany


Good EP from modern blackened DM masters Antediluvian.
15Cerekloth
In the Midst of Life We Are In Death


Band has been compared to Ulcerate for their unusual riffing and fevent for atonality, essential stuff.
16Deeds of Flesh
Portals to Canaan


Yeah it's overproduced but Deeds know their shit, great tech death album,
17Havok (SWE)
Statues of Sisyphus


More tech-death.
18Zealotry
The Charnel Expanse


Suffocatingly atmospheric old school tech with substantial Demilich worship, must have.
19Fallujah
Nomadic


Another tech-death band, another annoying production job but some spell-binding riffs and great atmosphere.
20Graveyard (ESP)
The Sea Grave


Just some solid OSDM.
21Spawn of Possession
Incurso


Mock all you want, Spawn of Possession have a million times more substance than your typical tech death act. All to often dismissed as "wank" in light of it's otherworldly complexity, Incurso is essential for any lover of technical music.
22Brutality
Ruins of Humans


Excellent EP from ye old Brutality.
23Omnium Gatherum
Beyond


Vocals can get a little annoying but this is solid melodeath with riffs in abundance.
24Portal
Vexovoid


Being arguably the weakest album in Portal's discog still warrants some pretty hefty praise. Murks like no other.
25Suffocation
Pinnacle of Bedlam


Got some hate for the production (well deserved) but the riffs make up for it.
26Sacriphyx
The Western Front


Solid DM with NWOBHM influence, interesting album.
27Defeated Sanity
Passages Into Deformity


More immediate than DF's other stuff but I'd actually argue this being their weakest, nevertheless, it fucking rules.
28Incarnator (RUS)
Caeca Superstitio


Excellent Russian tech-death with good production (for once) and thrash/death vox, what's not to love?
29Vorum
Poisoned Void


Old school DM.
30Convulse
Inner Evil


Perhaps a taste of what's to come on Convulse's new album, I'm excited to say the least.
31Katalepsy
Autopsychosis


If this qualifies as "slam" then it's has to be the single best thing that's emerged from the scene. Heavily rooted in traditional brutal death metal however, Autopsychosis is a must for fans of all things brutal.
32Adversarial / Antediluvian
Split


More solid blackened DM.
33Ignivomous
Contragenesis


Agro as fuck old school DM with strong Incantation vibe.
34Psycroptic
The Inherited Repression


Just some solid modern tech.
35Mors Principium Est
...And Death Said Live


Melodeath.
36Symptom
Opulent Atrocity


Crushing old school death.
37Binah
Hallucinating in Resurrecture


Old School Death.
38Grave Miasma
Odori Sepulcrorum


Old school death.
39Cattle Decapitation
Monolith of Inhumanity


Worth listening to for the vocal performance alone. Apart from some pretty annoying, plastic production this album rules.
40In Mourning
The Weight of Oceans


Progressive, melodic, doomy, whatever metal.
41Inverloch
Dusk|Subside


Crushing death doom from 2 of 4 members of Disembowelment, must listen.
42Hour of Penance
Sedition


I know I'll get some hate for this but whatever, got riffs.
43Cannibal Corpse
Torture


Just another solid album from Cannibal Corpse.
44Abominable Putridity
The Anomalies of Artificial Origin


Leaps and bounds ahead of the majority of brutal DM, excellent album.
45December Flower
When All Life Ends...


Some old-school melodeath (if such a term exists) in the vein of Lunar Strain era In Flames.
46Blessed Offal
Blessed Offal


Crushing doomy death with suffocating atmosphere, what's not to love?
47Disma
Towards the Megalith


More death/doom with members from Funebrarum and Incantation.
48Prosanctus Inferi
Noctambulous Jaws Within Sempiternal Night


Evil blackened DM
49Benighted
Asylum Cave


More tech death.
50Flourishing
The Sum of All Fossils


Industrial DM (if that's a thing which I don't think it is). Some of the most atmospheric stuff you'll ever hear, must listen.
51Funerus
Reduced to Sludge


Don't really care for the production or vox on this too much but it riffs so it's in my good books
52Mitochondrion
Parasignosis


Murky DM ala. Portal and Antediluvian.
53Ritual Necromancy
Oath of The Abyss


Even murkier DM.
54Cruciamentum
Engulfed In Desolation


Old school DM.
55Fallujah
The Harvest Wombs


Another tech act that gets unwarranted hate, great spacey atmosphere to couple the riffs.
56Antediluvian
Through the Cervix of Hawaah


Pretty sure these guys have already had two appearances on this list so you should know to expect.
57Insomnium
One for Sorrow


One of Insomnium's weaker efforts but still very enjoyable melodeath.
58Septicflesh
The Great Mass


So this is more just my personal fervent for symphonic metal talking but whatever, album rules.
59Blaspherian
Infernal Warriors of Death


I literally cannot stop listening to this album, has to have some of the best "old school" production I've ever heard.
60Ulcerate
The Destroyers of All


Incredibly atmospheric yada yada you should all know how I feel about this band by now.
61Cruciamentum/Vasaeleth
Eroding Chaos Unto Ascendant Flesh


Two excellent old school revival acts join together to make this kick as EP. Though I'm more a fan of Vasaeleth's work, Cruciamentum's portion of this rules unwaveringly.
62First Fragment
The Afterthought Ecstasy


Hidden tech death gem.
63Katalepsy
You Fear is Our Inhabitancy


Great little EP with a couple of tracks that ended up on Autopsychosis.
64Defeated Sanity
Chapters of Repugnance


One of the heaviest albums in existence, the lower end on this defies words.
65Immolation
Majesty and Decay


Superb album from Immolation.
66Vasaeleth
Crypt Born & Tethered To Ruin


Ultra dense, murky as fuck death metal.
67Adversarial
Prophetic Plain Of Abyssal Revelation


Blackened DM.
68Beyond Creation
The Aura


Annoying production but sublime riffs and bass performance make this one of modern tech's finer hours.
69Adversarial
All Idols Fall Before the Hammer


More Blackened DM.
70Obliteration
Black Death Horizon


Haven't heard (lel) but will obviously rule so yeah.
