Kontinual, editor of the Dark Legions Archive
"In underground metal, there is a youthful coalescence of seemingly disparate ideas, a syncretism. These are rooted in themes of heroism, warfare, death, the beyond, history, endtimes -- indulgent glimpses into worlds beyond the individual and the dreary present, and far from merely temporal or personal concerns. The approach is boundless and powerful, and the music matches."

Building off the speed and complexity of thrash metal, death metal emerged during the mid 1980s. It was mainly inspired by thrash metal acts like Slayer, Kreator and Celtic Frost. Along with the band Death and its frontman Chuck Schuldiner (who is often referred to as "the father of death metal"), bands like Possessed and Morbid Angel are often considered pioneers of the genre. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, death metal gained more media attention as popular record labels like Earache Records and Roadrunner Records.

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…
