    I like Brain Drill and I'm starting to look into Nile. What do you think I'd like?

    Nile is not Technical Death Metal IMO.

    Decapitated (Excellent)
    Gorod (Excellent)
    Anata
    Carcariass (Less Death-y but excellent. More similar to later Coroner)
    Decrepit Birth
    Dying Fetus (some)
    Fractured Insanity
    Gorguts
    Gory Blister (Excellent)
    Martyr
    Necrophagist
    Odious Mortem
    Quo Vadis
    Spawn of Possession
    Yattering

    Necrophagist and Yattering are sort of hit and miss with most metal fans. You either like them or you don't. I do.

    Augury.

    Come on Dak, you're slipping. :cool:

    I actually shouldn't talk, because I don't really listen to much tech death. I just happen to like Augury.

    As much as I like Augury, I don't quite know if it really falls under Tech Death. Maybe if the umbrella is a wide one, but they incorporate too many other elements. I did have to think about it before omitting it.

    I still have trouble distinguishing between the two. Enlighten me, oh sage of the genres. ;)

    Augury incorporates influences from disparate genres outside of the canon of technical death metal. I can see how people would characterize them as such though. Technical death metal usually still sounds rooted in DM, whereas progressive DM may utilize bizarre instrumentation, exotic structures (which are not just the result of "technicality" aka key shifts, time signature shifts, etc.) and shit like operatic vocals like Augury :cool:

    Technical DM focuses mainly on intricate timing and precision drum and guitar work with Death Metal rhythms and tone.

    Augury incorporates extra sonic effects and more melodic passages and less Death Metal tone but maintains some technicality.

    Edit: Post Jump, Andy said it better.

    Psycroptic are tech death, definitely. Ulcerate is backwards death metal (tm).

    I was joking :p hence the trademarking of the term. Every riff sounds like it's being played backwards :p
