10 Essential Death Metal

10 essential albums from/relating to the death metal genre.
Seven Churches

Not truly death metal, but Possessed was one of the pioneers of death metal. A must own for people wanting to listen to death metal's roots.
Scream Bloody Gore

The defining death metal album, Death's Scream Bloody Gore delivers all you could want from a death metal album: gory lyrics, evil-sounding riffs, death vocals and very fast-paced songs the entire way through.
3Morbid Angel
Altars of Madness

Morbid Angel took death metal and refined it much more to separate itself from extreme thrash bands such as Slayer and Celtic Frost.
Cause Of Death

One of the few bands besides Death to use cleaner death vocals so they can be easily understood.

Another early death metal band, Deicide uses anti-christian lyrics similar to black metal bands rather than the gory lyrics found in most death metal bands.
Unquestionable Presence

Atheist was way far ahead of its time when they released their first album in 1989. They played extremely technical death metal beyond anything heard up to this point.
Effigy of the Forgotten

Suffocation led death metal into a more technical and brutal direction while still retaining the classic death metal sound.
8Cannibal Corpse
Tomb of the Mutilated

Like Mayhem, Cannibal Corpse is probably the source of all the cute death metal stereotypes you hear all the time.

While a grind band at first, Carcass drifted into the world of death metal and became a pioneer of melodic death metal.
None So Vile

It's None So fucking Vile, why else?
