DEATH METAL Essentials! (no deathcore, br00tal or melodeath)

A Listmania! list by Valan "Mands" (Staffs, UK)
 
Like An Everflowing Stream
1.  Like An Everflowing Stream by Dismember
The list author says:
  "The best Dismember album in my opinion. Showing real 'melodic' Scan DM at its finest!"
£8.87
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Prodigal Sun
2.  Prodigal Sun by The Afflicted
The list author says:
  "Afflicted (not 'The' Afflicted), a Swedish DM band sorely overlooked. Technically ahead of their time, brilliant Scan DM."
Used & New from: £27.33
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Demos
3.  Demos by Nocturnus
The list author says:
  "A lot of people will disagree with me on this, but I personally prefer hearing the demo versions of  'Undead Journey', 'Standing In Blood', etc. Less emphasis on keyboards and more on guitarwork."
£19.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Piece Of Time
4.  Piece Of Time by Atheist
The list author says:
  "Why bother with stagnent DM after '95 when albums like these still kill and sound so contemporary."
£15.67   Used & New from: £9.50
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

The Rack
5.  The Rack by Asphyx
The list author says:
  "Asphyxs' The Rack is a great epic slab of DM, melodic in places (in the true sense of the word when discussing DM), but overall dark and crushing!"
£166.42   Used & New from: £149.99

Consuming Impulse
6.  Consuming Impulse by Pestilence
The list author says:
  "Mr. Van Drunen again, here with Pestilence. Both this album and Malleus Maleficarum are must haves by this band, though for more technical/keyboard/fannying about fans, you may prefer T.O.T.A."
£5.06
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Severed Survival [Digipak]
7.  Severed Survival [Digipak] by Autopsy
The list author says:
  "AUTOPSY, what can I say!? Truely, if you don't own this or Mental Funeral, you can't really be a full on death head! ;D"
£9.99   Used & New from: £6.95
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Nihilist
8.  Nihilist by Nihilist
The list author says:
  "Became Entombed whos 'Left Hand Path' album is also a classic. These demos show the raw, intensity of early DM. Check out demos by bands like Macrodex, Dr. Shrinker,  Darkified, Gorement, etc too."

Unreleased 1985 Album
10.  Unreleased 1985 Album by Master
The list author says:
  "Sorely overlooked early DM, infulenced by the likes of Black Sabbath, Motorhead, etc developed a more extreme sound, slightly punkish, but definatly death 'f*kkin' metal (Deathstrike, pre Master)"
£15.21

Seven Churches
11.  Seven Churches by Possessed
The list author says:
  "Another of the forefathers of the genre. Possessed, Bathory, Slayer, Sepultura, Necrovore, Hellhammer, etc inspired a generation, infulencing all the DM & BM that followed!"
£11.14   Used & New from: £8.00
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Dawn of Possession: Remastered & Expanded
12.  Dawn of Possession: Remastered & Expanded by Immolation
The list author says:
  "A consistantly solid output, but this one is quality old skool and that means it manages to convey more than the typical 'br00tal' sound of todays crap!"
Used & New from: £64.26
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Nespithe
13.  Nespithe by Demilich
The list author says:
  "A wierd, erratic, kind of technical style, ahead of their time and unfortuanatly this is their only album (though watch this space!). Check out some of the most guttaral vox in DM too!"
£12.70

Dream II
14.  Dream II by Pan-Thy-Monium
The list author says:
  "Dawn demo, Dawn of Dreams and this EP are a must for those wanting to check out Pan-Thy-Monium, a dark fantasy spin on DM, featuring Dan Swano."
Used & New from: £68.77
