A list of some of my favorite tech-death bands at the moment. In a general order of preference
We are the Nightmare
Technical, melodic, brutal, classical-- all the elements of excellence.
So many crazy songs on this album, so varied, so entertaining.
Onset of Putrefaction
This is Muhammad Suicmez making guitars scream in pleasure. Wildly mesmerizing.
Off-kilter shifting time signatures combined with crushing brutality and speed make this a top pick.
The Thin Line Between
Melodic and progressive, this is the culmination of this band's work thus far.
|6||Beneath the Massacre|
Mechanics of Dysfunction
The guitars are absolutely out of this world, and the drumming is like a machine gun that shoots lazers.
This is what evil robots would listen to if they controlled the world.
This should actually be #4 but I'm too lazy to change it. This album features some of the most thrilling
grooves ever to come from a tech-death album. Also it generally just kicks ass, too.
|8||Woe of Tyrants|
Kingdom of Might
Very fun to listen to; melodic and fast-paced. Also a nice element of classic power-metal helps out.
Insanely fast and technically unrivaled, Origin's only weakness is lack of variation and hook-y-ness.
