|Top 10 Technical Death Metal Bands|
Okay first of all this is my OPINION, and as we are all aware, bands can be put in and out of different genres so here is why a few bands that you might think should be on this list, aren't. Death is going to be classified as Death Metal. Arsis is half melodic Death metal, so I don't feel right putting it on this list. Meshuggah is experimental whatever, so I don't think I can put it on here either. Nile is Death Metal, I don't feel too comfortable putting them on this. Bloodbath will be classified as Death Metal as well. SECOND OF ALL, this list is in no particular order, as I could not decide how to rank them. I think thats all, but I might be forgetting some.
Every one of their songs shows technical prowess and they're all memorable.
I don't like this band as much as I should. I don't know what it is, I can't get too into them. But I acknowledge that they are pretty much the most influential Tech Death band ever.

My favorite Tech Death band.
Focus is a tech death masterpiece. Traced in Air is not tech death, but it's impossible to deny the effects of focus on tech death.
They have one of the absolute fastest guitar players, and despite only having two albums out, they are highly influential as well.
My least favorite of the Big 3 of Atheist, Cynic, And Pestilence. But Spheres is a masterpiece.
They are very influential but I can't get into them as much as the others listed here.
One of the best bands to come out of australia, they're one of my more favorite tech death artists, despite not being nearly as influential as the others. The last two releases were particularly good.
|9|| ||Spawn Of Possession|
Cabinet is an awesome album, as well as Noctambulant, can't wait for their third album
I personally don't see what the deal is with this one, but they're very influential. DO NOT GET THEIR LATEST ALBUM.
|"every one of their songs shows technical prowess"|
you could say that about any tech death band. nice call on 7 though
|wow I agree with you completely except I don't like 8 very much. |
|i always get the names for 8 and 10 confused|
|Definitely nice choices, have you ever listened to Revocation? If not, check out their newest one - Existence is Futile. Good thrashy tech-death.|
|Cynic > all these bands.|
|Yep, I've heard of revocation. Definite top notch stuff :)|
|Nile isnt tech death but The Faceless is?|
|yes....1 is the way to go! and 5 should be 2 and 7 should be 3 imo .|
|zip fails again, he prefers the faceless over psycroptic|
|you need to listen to some mother fucking fleshgod apocalypse and volturyon|
|nice list... i feel the same way about 2. |
|^ aw man, but Atheist :(|
|i will listen to them and then decided|
|Cynic should be ahead of The Faceless.|
|I miss Bands like Origin and of course Death but the list is still ok. |
|iwrestledabigmaconce you're illiterate.|
Thanks for this list man. I only have a couple bands off this list, and I've been meaning to get some tech death. I'll definitely use this as a resource once I really start scoping out the genre.
|i agree very much on number 10|
|Good list ;) my fav is Cryptopsy. Is influencial or not. legendary or not, for me is most interesing techdechmet band at all. i'm drummer, i'm biggest fan of Flo :D for me Cryptopsy schould be #2 ;p|
|Nice list, but you need Ulcerate.|
