What are your favorite Death Metal bands? My favorites in the genre are: Death, Suffocation, Nile, Morbid Angel and Necrophagist. I tend to gravitate to the more extreme technical bands in the genre. Thier musicianship just blows me away. I think Nile & Suffocation are the kings of Death Metal right now. They both make pretty much the most brutal technical metal on the planet. They also bring an intersting approach to it. On the other hand, IMO there's alot of mediocre sounding bands in this genre. Not that they are bad musicians...just not very interesting. Generic sounding if you will. What are some of you favorite Death Metal bands or albums? What would you reccomend based on the other bands I mentioned?
