41. R.U. Dead? - Promotape 
Okay, I know the band name is ridiculous, but just trust me on this one. This was a full-length demo and never saw a proper release, but it's one of the most astounding slabs of death metal I've ever heard. The band was formed by Uli Hildenbrand after the dissolution of Poison and continued largely along the same track, with a more refined sound that seamlessly merged Teutonic thrash with Autopsy-style doomy death, while also blazing a trail with sprawling compositions and classy guitar interplay. In a lot of ways, this band laid the blueprint for bands like The Chasm and Dissection. A true classic lost to time.
42. Internal Decay - A Forgotten Dream

This time, they're in chronological order
Sempiternal Deathreign - The Spooky Gloom 
Here's a band every Obituary fan should listen to and realize how foolish they've been to have worshipped that overrated tripe. Sempiternal Deathreign was probably the ORIGINAL death/doom band. This album came out a full two years before Autopsy's Mental Funeral, and one year before Winter's Into Darkness. Basically, it's really raw, ugly doom/death, influenced primarily by the likes of Hellhammer and Black Sabbath, as well as classic Teutonic thrash (Sodom, Kreator). And unlike the aforementioned Obituary, their solos AREN'T the only interesting thing about their music. There are some actually great riffs to be found in here. Songs range anywhere from 1:55 to 10:53, so there's plenty of variety here, as well.

As usual, these are in no particular order of preference.
21. Cosmic Atrophy - Codex Incubo 
THE death metal album of 2008. Cosmic Atrophy are a duo out of Houston that does what nobody truly ventured to do - pick up where Demilich left off with their legendary Nespithe album. Codex Incubo is a bit on the short side but it does an amazing job of expanding on the ideas Demilich put forth 15 years earlier. Don't worry, though, it's not a clone by any means. These guys are already hard at work on their next album, so there will more than likely be plenty more where that came from.
22. Torchure - The Essence 
Like early Morgoth and Bolt Thrower? You'll probably love this. Possibly the only one of the early German death metal bands not to turn assfuckingly gay in the mid-90s. Great atmospheric old-school death with both thrashy and doomy tracks…
16 May 2008, 00:00 by baltech22Picking up where I left off...
11. Disciples of Mockery - Prelude To Apocalypse
An Incantation splinter group, formed by 3/4 of the Onward To Golgotha lineup, minus John McEntee. Disciples of Mockery's one album was head and shoulders above everything Incantation ever released. The sound is superficially very similar, but the compositions are much crisper and bear a prominent martial industrial influence.

12. God Macabre - The Winterlong
Reissuing this album was one of the best things Relapse ever did. Unfortunately, it wasn't exactly a priority release, even though it definitely should've been. One of the finest old-school Swedeath albums ever, despite its brevity.
13. Infester - To the Depths... In Degradation
Ugliness and filth. …
