OSDM

Been on a long kick of pure 90s and late 80s death metal, with the obvious hints of thrash. These are the records I’ve gorged myself hardest upon. I’ll add more if people want, I’ve got a fuckton of old shit that people don’t talk about.
1Cryptopsy
None So Vile


A completely subjective opinion, but my favorite death metal album. Absolutely filthy, both musically and in the trash recording quality, which for me is a bonus that was oddly not as ugly as on the debut record. Lord Worm just sounds like a rabid dog with his head in a trash can and I feel it in my intestines.
2Depravity (FIN)
Silence of the Centuries


Finland DM kicks so much ass. There’s a certain melodic quality to a lot of Swedeath that strikes me kinda sour, I dunno.
3Pestilence
Consuming Impulse


This is objectively the best death metal album of all time and if you disagree you are just wrong.
4Illdisposed
Four Depressive Seasons


Interesting to see bands who ripped these classics still going. Haven’t checked out any recent Illdisposed albums, but I’m curious. There are a load of examples of fantastic DM bands going to shit later on.
5Baphomet (NY)
The Dead Shall Inherit


This kind of gory artwork that’s amateurishly drawn gets me every time. There’s a narrow balance of gross and cartoonish that’s perfect, because some are too nasty and some are too stupid, ha.
6Demigod
Slumber of Sullen Eyes


Another band that was still around a decent ways into the ‘00s, but this is their only full record before the turn of the century (along with about a dozen demos). Par for the course with records in that scenario, it’s a fuckin’ crusher.
7Avulsed
Eminence in Putresence


Gotta love the prototype art of most tech death/slam records nowadays
8Pungent Stench
For God Your Soul...For Me Your Flesh


Again, ARTFULLY landing on the perfect shade of gross that isn’t nauseating. The fact that it rips doesn’t do it any harm, neither.
9Convulse
World Without God


Scrumptious, and with such a wholesome message of hope.
10Dismember
Like an Ever Flowing Stream


One more stereotypical classic, but well-deserved of praise. Keep coming back to this one, more than Obituary or Autopsy even.
