Daath Shadow Crowns For Kings
Nicely written Black/Death Metal album. Sound quality and mixing is good. Definately one of the better Black Metal albums I've heard.
Dark Fortress Seance
This album is one of the better Black Metal albums; the mastering gives it a fuller sound found mainly in Death Metal, and not is Black Metal. Songs are also well written.

Darkest Hour Deliver Us
Darkest Hour The Eternal Return

Despised Icon Consumed by Your Poison

Disentomb Sunken Chambers of Nephilim

Pretty good Death Metal/Deathcore album. The vocals are good and there's some cool guitar riffs. On the down side, the beats have too many breaks; they don't flow like the old school Death Metal.
Dulcamara Asylum
This album has a really wide range of variety; some songs are exremely technical/melodic to the point of being boring, and others are awesome death metal. Overall, it's a good album, good vocals.

Embodyment Embrace the Eternal
Probably their best album, has some good songs with good vocals

Extol Burial
Has some good songs on here, but others are questionable

God Dethroned Passiondale
God Dethroned The Grand Grimoire

Gorguts From Wisdom to Hate
Decent album, nothing really spectacular. In my opinion, it can't compare to "Considered Dead".
Grave Back From The Grave
GWAR Lust in Space
Overall a good thrash metal album. The lyrics, as usual, are ridiculous and nonsense, the songwriting is pretty good along with the quality. Some songs are boring, but some are pretty good.
Hailstorm Greyness
Good death metal album; nice blast beats and speed, with decent vocals. Nothing extremely impressive though.
Hedor Victory Of Annihilation
Not a bad Death/Black Metal album; nothing really impressive though. The songs are decent, and the quality is "OK", a bit cluttered.
Hortor Ancient Satanic Rituals Are Crushed In Dust

Nice rhythms...well written. A couple songs a bit lacking, but overall good.

Nice brutal album with good riffs and vocals. Recommended for fans of Death Metal

Lithuria Pimps of the Living Dead
Lordi Get Heavy
Maroon When Worlds Collide
Massacre The Second Coming (Demo)

Better than some of their older stuff, but still nothing to brag about. The songs have catchy riffs, but the quality is a bit low; vocals are "OK" - sounds like the band Possessed.

Decent death metal album; nothing really impressive. Has some good riffs and drums are good; vocals are "OK". Better than some of their earlier releases.
Masticator Internal Inversion

Morgul All Dead Here…
Very well written Black Metal album; the songwriting resembles Death Metal at times, unlike the typical black metal open chords. Very nice.

Good Technical Death Metal album by underground Baltimore band
Psychotogen The Calculus Of Evil
Psycroptic The Isle of Disenchantment
Pungent Stench Ampeauty

Nice "old school", raw sound. Vocals are really good and riffs are well written. Some tracks sounds like old Cannibal Corpse.

Royal Anguish Tales Of Sullen Eyes
Nice gothic/death variety. The song writing is excellent with nice tech riffs and classical pieces

Sabaothic Cherubim Decomposed Remains (Remix)
Good songs on this EP, but the quality is very raw. Definately can't compare to their newer albums. This is from the era when this band was more underground.

Live tracks are moderate quality, but this live album also features three studio tracks which are brutal.
Sabaothic Cherubim Where The Blood Flows (2010 Remix)
Sabaothic Cherubim Release The Resonance (Live & Raw)
Nice collection of live tracks. Some of the older tracks (from 1992) have a very low quality. The newer tracks sound much better.

Scar Symmetry Symmetric in Design
Scar Symmetry Pitch Black Progress
Scorngrain Utopia Paranoia Perversions
Good industrial/death album. Guitar riffs are good, and the mix is well done.

Septicflesh Mystic Places of Dawn
Septicflesh A Fallen Temple
Sepultura Chaos A.D.
Sepultura Schizophrenia
Sepultura A-Lex

Sinister Afterburner
Pretty good death metal album, not as good as their older stuff though. Songwriting is decent, but some of the leads get a bit annoying.

One of their better albums; nice mix of goth metal with a touch of melodic black metal

Decent death metal album, pretty decent live tracks on here as well.

Tehace Zipped Noise From Hell
Decent death metal album; good variety of tracks, although some songs are a bit boring. Track #8, "Earth's Citizen", is worth listening to.
Teloch Morbid Prayer
Not a bad Black Metal album; the sonwriting is somewhat unique for balck metal. Good riffs throughout the album, and decent quality. The song "Morbid Prayer" is worth a listen, cool opening rhythm.

Good album, decent riffs and sound engineering; vocals are lacking in intensity though

Good album with intense songs, good blast beats and leads.

Agrypnie 16[485]
An "OK" album, nothing really special. Sound quality is good and mixing sounds good, but the songwriting is not impressive.

This album was a bit of a disappointment; the quality is bad, the drums are too basic and the guitar tracks are very muffled.

Deicide Deicide
Deicide To Hell With God
Sounds like they took the songs from their past few albums and just changed the lyrics. They really need to bring the Hoffman brothers back.
Deliverance Stay Of Execution
This is the album where the band started straying away from it's thrash roots. The songs are pretty lame to the point of being annoying.
Deliverance Learn
Like it's predecessor, this album is lame and a big disappointment compared to the band's first two albums.
Deliverance River Disturbance
Deliverance Camelot In Smithereens
Nice music with "thrashy" guitar riffs, but the vocals are way too mellow and melodically boring.

Very bad sound quality, and mixing. Music is "OK", but nothing really impressive.
Disastrous Murmur Folter
Dissection The Somberlain

Dying Fetus Purification Through Violence
Emperor Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
Everlasting Dark Return To Darkness
Fallen Within Intoxicated
This album has potential, but they dropped the ball. The music is well written and well engineered, but the vocals miss the mark. This band has been categorized as Melodic Death Metal, but this album is far from it.

This is an "OK" Black Metal album; songs aren't bad, and quailty is decent, but nothing impressive here. Some of the guitar riffs are catchy.
Gestapo 666 Nostalgiah

God Dethroned The Christhunt
Decent album; cannot compare to their newer releases. The quality is "OK", and the sonmgwriting is average

Harvest The Deceased VI Kings
Nothing to brag about here...album is "OK". Quality is average, and songwriting as well. Some songs get a bit annoying.

Hypocrisy Abducted
In Mourning Monolith
Incantation The Forsaken Mourning of Angelic Anguish
Nothing to brag about with this album; the music is decent, but the quality is lacking. As with other Incantation albums, the vocals aren't too impressive. Sound mastering sounds a bit "cluttered" at times.
Infanticide From Our Cold Dead Hands
Just another "OK" death metal/grindcore album. This album sounds like a sloppier version of old Napalm Death; guitars are over distorted and drums are just pounding blast beats...quality is average.
Korpblod Hymner
Nothing special about this black metal album, sounds like the rest. The qualtiy is pretty good, and song writing is decent; some songs are a bit long (over 11 minutes), and get annoying.
Lacuna Coil Unleashed Memories
Living Sacrifice Conceived In Fire
Martyrdom Slaying GIants
Master Let's Start A War
Nothing really impressive about this album; sounds more like thrash than death metal. Songwriting is very basic and quality is "OK". Sounds like old Kreator.
Master Collection Of Souls
This album is "OK", nothing special. The music is basic, sound quality decent and the vocals are more thrash than anything.
Master Faith Is In Season
Just another OK album by Master. The quality is lacking and the songwriting lacks the typical Death Metal style.

Nothing to brag about; raw sound and a bit sloppy. Vocals are hard to hear and sound more like growling noise
Metanoia Time To Die
Better than their 1998 release, but still lacking in many areas
Morbid Angel Gateways to Annihilation
Can't even compare to their older releases; this album lacks in many ways. Songs are too slow and boring; attempts to pick up the pace sound weak; the sound engineer messed up teriibly on the EQs, resulting in weak drums tracks (Pete's playing isn't given justice). The only good thing about this album is the vocals, which are very well done, with good gutturals.
Morphosis Rise of the Bastard Deities
This death metal album offers nothing special. The quality is less than average, and the songwriting is a bit sloppy. Vocals are probably the only good thing about this recording.
Mortician Hacked Up For Barbecue/Zombie Apocalypse
Definately the best album by this band that I've ever heard, but still lacking when compared to death metal as a whole.
myGRAIN Signs Of Existence
the death metal parts are very good, but the lapses into the other nonsense are annoying. If they could get rid of all the "clean" parts (vocals & music), this album could be very good.
Nachtmystium Instinct: Decay
Nachtmystium Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. 2
Natron Hung, Drawn and Quartered
Music isn't too bad, though the quality is lacking; the vocals are too muffled and the mastering is bad
Natron Unpure
Neuraxis A Passage into Forlorn
Nile Ithyphallic
Novembers Doom The Knowing
This album moves way too slow! If they would increase the BPMs and speed up the riffs this album could have been great. The vocals are awesome and quality is good
Obituary Darkest Day
This album was OK, nothing to brag about. After about half way through it, I was getting annoyed with the monotonous riffs.
Paganizer Promoting Total Death
Nothing special about this death metal album; songswriting is "OK", and quality is average. The overall mastering is a bit noisy.
Paradise Lost Gothic
Probably their best album, from a "death metal" perspective; Nick's vocals had a nice guttural sound on here. The song "Dead Emotion" even made it onto the Hard & Heavy Grindcore video, with Morbid Angel, Carcass and Napalm Death in 1992. Their new stuff is pathetic.
Pathology Legacy of the Ancients
Music isn't too bad, but the vocals are over-distorted and borderline annoying.
Posithrone Necropoles
The songs are not that heavy, and a bit boring; on the positive side, the quality is very good with some technical melodic riffs.
Primordial To the Nameless Dead
Pungent Stench Masters Of Moral, Servants Of Sin
Not as bad as some of their releases; has some good songs on here. The guitars are lacking the heaviness that trademarks most Death Metal/Grindcore albums...mastering needs improvement.

Not bad for a demo; the quality is pretty raw and mix a bit sloppy.
Sacrament Haunts Of Violence
Not as good as their earlier album; decent riffs, but vocalist gets annoying.

Scaremaker What Evil Have They Summoned...
Sepsism Distorting the Mortal Visage
Septicflesh Sumerian Daemons
Septicflesh Revolution DNA
Serdce The Alchemy Of Harmony
This album could have been decent, but they dropped the ball. A few tracks are good, but many sound like a death metal singer grouped up with a jazz band. Big disappointment.
Serial Butcher A Crash Course In Cranium Crushing
An "OK" brutal death metal album; song writing is average, and the quality is raw. Sounds like a cheap imitation of Cannibal Corpse.

Soulfly Prophecy
Soulfly Soulfly
Sufferage Bloodspawn
Suffocation Breeding the Spawn

Tristania Ashes
Tristania Rubicon
Turisas The Varangian Way
Ulcerate The Destroyers of All
Vader The Beast
Not a bad album, but definately cannot compare to their newer albums. The tracks are "OK", but at times even get a bit boring.
Vengeance Rising Human Sacrifice
Sounds like a combo of calssic rock guitars, with pounding drums (no double bass) and guttural vocals.
Vengeance Rising Once Dead
Better than Human Sacrifice, but still lacking the heaviness of Death Metal.
Vomitory Raped In Their Own Blood
Definitely their worst album; songwriting is poor and quality is lacking. Album has a "sloppy" sound
Vorkreist Sickness Sovereign
This Black Metal is lacking in several ways; the music is well written, but the levels are mastered poorly, resulting in a noisy completed mix. Songs get annoying as a result.
Wardaemonic Echoes of Ageless Flames
Songs aren't too band, but the final mix is too cluttered; can't really appreciate the musical talents.

2.0 poor
Abaddon Incarnate The Last Supper
This album sounds nothing more than a noizy mess with over distorted vocals.
Aghora Aghora
Blizzard The Roaring Tanks of Armageddon
This album sounds like crap; the quality stinks, the vocals are too loud and the singer's voice is not that great. Sounds like a mix of low quality metal and punk.
Brutal Truth Kill Trend Suicide
I've been a fan of this band for years, but have to admit that this album is pretty sloppy
Cattle Decapitation Homovore
Low quality recording with occational mess ups in the double-bass drum track's timing and consistency. Overall...sloppy.
Cerebral Fix Life Sucks…And Then You Die!
This death metal album is a disappointment; the songs are very basic, and even sloppy. The music sounds more "punkish" than death metal, and the mastering is bad. I do like the vocals though.
Cough Ritual Abuse
Cryptopsy None So Vile
Cryptopsy The Unspoken King
Death The Sound of Perseverance
Deicide Till Death Do Us Part
Diminished 7 Dim World

Bad sound quality and mastering; songwriting is very basic and the guitar riffs are sloppy.
Draconian The Burning Halo
Echo Hollow Diet Of Worms
Lame album; outside of the U2 cover song, the rest is weak.

A major disappointment to fans of Entombed's earlier albums. In my opinion, this was the album that started them down the "soft" path.

Music is alright, but the vocals pull this album down; they are way too distorted and muffled. Production is also lacking; guitars are too cluttered.
Graveland Fire Chariot of Destruction
Immortal Battles in the North
Incantation Blasphemous Cremation
This is one of the sloppiest death metal albums I have ever heard; songwriting is weak
Internal Suffering Supreme Knowledge Domain
Another crappy album by these guys. The songwriting doesn't seem too bad, but the poor sound quality and sloppy mastering take away from it. If you like sloppy death metal, with noizy music, then this album is for you; if you like well written/mastered death metal, then don't waste your time with this.
Internal Suffering Unmercyful Extermination
Quality is bad, and song writing is low. Not recommended.
Massacre Promise
What a big disappointment from their earlier releases; this album is lame both musically and vocally.
Massacre Chamber Of Ages (Demo)
Very low quality demo; the vocals have way too much reverb and the vocal track is too low. Guitars don't sound too bad.

Mortician Darkest Day Of Horror
Quality is sloppy and muffled; song writing is "OK" and vocals are terrible. Some of the guitar tracks are decent.

Mortician Zombie Apocalypse
This death metal album lacks in many ways; the songwriting is weak, the quality is raw/sloppy and the vocals are too distorted and even annoying.
Napalm Death Scum
Neuraxis Imagery
Novembers Doom Of Sculptured Ivy And Stone Flowers
Very weak album; most of the tracks are very light and sound like blues/lounge music. A major disappointment
Pigsty The Return
Nothing worth listening to on this album; the songs are poorly written and the quality is messy.
Pigsty Planet Of The Pigs
Music is "OK", but the vocals are terrible. The mixing is so crappy that the small trace of decent guitar riffs are smothered in the noise.
Pigsty Spiders
Vocals are too distorted and muffles; the mixing is sloppy and sound quality is hollow. The drums sound like someone is hitting a tin can...overall POOR
Pitchshifter Submit
These guys have been labeled as Grindcore in the past, but in my opinion, this was one of the worst albums I've ever heard. Hollow sound, and annoying riffs
Pungent Stench For God Your Soul...For Me Your Flesh
This is the typical stuff from these guys, nothing impressive
Putrefy One Nation Under Gore

Sabaothic Cherubim Where The Blood Flows
Clean sound quality, but lacking the raw brutal sound of their earlier albums.
Saturnus Paradise Belongs to You
This album is more melodic black metal than death metal. The songs move way too slow and are lame; half the tracks are intrumental nonsense. The only good part about this album are the sound of the vocals.
Serenades The Light Inside
Songs are too slow, to the point of being annoying
Spirit Descent Doominion
Big disappointment; the music is "OK", but the songs move ay too slow, and the vocals are annoying.
Stone Circle Myth
Very weak death metal album; songs are boring and lack the typical "death metal" sound. Some songs even have a hard rock or metal sound; a big disappointment.
The Amenta n0n
This is one of the most annoying albums I've heard is a long while. The constant blast beats don't even follow the rhythm of the guitars, and the pounding never stops. The parts without the blasts were just plain annoying. Big let down from their first two albums.
The Monolith Deathcult The White Crematorium 2.0
Poor quality, poor songwriting and overall a sloppy album. Vocals are too distorted as well.
Vasaeleth Crypt Born & Tethered To Ruin
This death metal album has been mastered very poorly; the quality and the levels are very bad. Songwriting, on the other hand, is not too bad; unfortunately, the low sound quality takes away from it.
Via Lunatis Neptunia
Pretty weak metal album. The sound is too low on the tracks and the female vocals dominate too much.

1.5 very poor
Mortician Re-Animated Dead Flesh
Another sloppy mess by these unskilled guys. There's a ton of tracks on this album, and they all sound the same...fast blast beats with annoying noise.
Putrefy Putrefy
This album is nothing but a sloppy mess of noise. No quality in the writing or the recording.
Putrefy Vomiting Putrid Blashphemy Split
Six Feet Under Death Rituals
This album is pretty bad; the songs are very basic, from a writing perspective and the vocals are too distorted, to the point to where they get annoying.
Vital Remains Horrors Of Hell
This compilation CD lacks in many ways; the sound quality stinks. Songs are either too slow and dragging, or fast and sloppy. Big disappointment.
Xasthur Subliminal Genocide

1.0 awful
Disastrous Murmur Empryotic Uterogestation (Demo)
One of the worst demos I've ever heard; the quality is terrible (cannot even hear the vocals and guitars properly), sounds like someone just pressed "record" on a boom-box.
Dr. Acula Slobology
Internal Suffering Chaotic Matrix
One of the worst death metal albums; sounds like sloppy noise accompanied with annoying blast beats. The vocals are terrible too...muffled and over distorted.
Mayhem Ordo Ad Chao
Mortician Domain Of Death
Terrible death metal album; poor songwriting, over distorted/muffled vocals, and just plain crappy music. Songs are annoying and sloppy.
Mortician Chainsaw Dismemberment
Mortician Mortal Massacre
Terrible death metal album; the quality is one of the worst and the live tracks sound like they were recorded on a hand-held tape recorder
Pungent Stench Been Caught Buttering
This album is one of the worst Death Metal albums I've ever heard, and I've been listening for over 20 years.
