Top 55 death metal albums

List won't include melodeath which is a genre on it's own (except 2 exception) nor prog death more in the prog side (cynic, opeth)
55Obliteration
Black Death Horizon


These guys sounds like they came from 90s
54Obituary
Cause of Death


Always found them overrated, their first 2 albums are great and iconic though
53Benediction
Transcend the Rubicon


These are the growls i love
52Electrocution
Inside the Unreal


Unknown death thrash done well
51Sophicide
Perdition of the Sublime


These guys know how to play
50Beyond Creation
The Aura


That bass
49The Faceless
Planetary Duality


Technically outstanding
48Dying Fetus
Destroy the Opposition


Slam godfathers
47Psypheria
Embrace The Mutation


A nice addiction of keyboards in death metal
46Massacre
From Beyond


The most distorted guitar in DM
45Repulsion
Horrified


influential for grind
44Rivers of Nihil
Where Owls Know My Name


Most relaxing DM ever, smart use of jazz elements
43Malevolent Creation
Retribution


Epic aggressiveness
42Insanity
Death After Death


Thrash death done right, another underrated gem
41Nocturnus
The Key


Sci-fi death that inspired many tech death bands
40Asesino
Cristo Satánico


A sort of brujeria 2.0. But heavier and funnier, y tu mama tambien is the best love song ever
39Fleshgod Apocalypse
Oracles


Before they were hated they played an awesome tech death with symphonic interludes
38Cannibal Corpse
The Bleeding


Their only lp without any fillers, brutal, disgusting and depraved as you wish
37Pig Destroyer
Prowler in the Yard


"This is beautiful, this is art"
36Demilich
Nespithe


Lowest growls ever and jazzy signatures made this an avant-garde icon
35Necrophagist
Onset of Putrefaction


Dirty, technical and yet so elegant
34Ripping Corpse
Dreaming With the Dead


Ahead of their time
33Kataklysm
Waiting for the End to Come


They blended their traditional aggressiveness with a more melodic approach, not enough to be considered melodeath. Underrated
32Incantation
Onward to Golgotha


So brutal for their times
31Spawn of Possession
Incurso


Lovecraft would be proud
30Behemoth
Demigod


Blackened death at it's finest
29Napalm Death
From Enslavement to Obliteration


Grind godfathers
28Impaled
Mondo Medicale


This guys needs more recognition, they blended perfectly deathgrind, traditional death and some melodic stuff
27Obscura
Cosmogenesis


My first tech death album, lots of cynic influence
26Pestilence
Testimony of the Ancients


Always overshadowed by consuming impulse imo this is better both for songwriting and cryptic atmospheres
25Bolt Thrower
Those Once Loyal


The killchain....
24Bloodbath
Nightmares Made Flesh


Tagtgren is one versatile motherfucker, Outnumbering the day is really something
23Revocation
Chaos of Forms


Thrashy tech death with funky and punk influences, Jeff Waters influences all over
22Ulcerate
Everything Is Fire


Perfect balance between sludgy and death atmospheres
21The Chasm
The Spell of Retribution


The best from their solid discography due to great dual guitars and triumphant vibes
20Vader
Litany


While many dislikes the drum sound i find it original, these polish guys know how to be brutal
19Entombed
Left Hand Path


Swedeath masters
18Cattle Decapitation
Monolith of Inhumanity


They managed to create a deathgrind with a sort of melody due to their versatile vocalist, drumming is insane tio
17Gorement
The Ending Quest


One of the gloomiest album of the genre. Doomy interludes, creepy melodies and an overall dark atmosphere, even the artwork is evocative
16Nile
Annihilation of the Wicked


Kollias is a beast, this egyptian themed band never stops to release great material
15Suffocation
Pierced from Within


Most iconic brutal ever
14Deicide
Deicide


Straight evil
13Carcass
Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious


Heartwork is their masterpiece but this fits more in a DM list, groovy and catchy
12Possessed
Seven Churches


The biggest influence for DM, really heavy and raw for it's times yet creative, like the bell intro
11Septicflesh
Communion


Symphonic yet heavy and cryptic
10Archspire
Relentless Mutation


Prewett's a fucking beast, the most technical (yet well constructed) album ever
9Dismember
Like an Ever Flowing Stream


They influenced melodeath before it was even a thing
8Atheist
Unquestionable Presence


The album that spreaded prog death worldwide with technical riffs, jazzy signatures and deep lyrics
7Necrophobic
The Nocturnal Silence


The darkest thing right from the 90s, listen to the title track intro, pure evil.
Blackened death masterpiece, except for that fucking purple pentagram
6Vital Remains
Dechristianize


The most melodic brutal album ever, i'll put it both in melodeath and here because of it's perfect balance between brutality and melody
5Gorguts
Obscura


Unsettling, distorted, creepy masterpiece
4Immolation
Close to a World Below


The closest thing to hell you'll hear, the hell awaits of death metal
3Cryptopsy
None So Vile


The most extreme album of 90s, Lord Worm was top notch and the use of the bass is perfect. Love also atmospherical parts like phobophile intro
2Morbid Angel
Altars of Madness


Perfect definition of death metal
1Death
Individual Thought Patterns


While their last 2 albums are masterpieces they are more in the prog death side, ITP is a step further from human with a perfect fusion of melody, heavyness, lots of technical riffs amd the unique sound of Chuck's guitars.
