    I think Opeth should get another mention, especially for someone just getting into metal.

    I don't know if this is the kind of thing you're looking for but these albums are pretty far removed from the "norm" of death metal.

    Demilich - Nespithe
    Traumatic Voyage - Traumatic Voyage
    Adramelech - Psychostasia
    Cartilage - The Fragile Concepts of Affection
    Gorguts - Obscura
    Supuration - The Cube

    I'm wondering how much underground metal the OP actually listens to, especially if he thinks it all sounds the same.

    I believe you can download the album free from the band's site, despite the reissue. True classic though.

    I have exactly zero knowledge in underground metal,I used to be a metalhead when i was teenager,then stopped for some reason (prejudice ?maybe ) btw I used to listen to Dissection,Obituary,Megadeth,Metallica,Cradle Of Filth,Dimmu Borgir,Danzig etc..etc... then started listening to Alternative / Stoner /Progressive .
    Now,I'll never had the time to listen to all these bands listed ,but the stuff that I've listened until now is really outstanding,also i have to say that i loved all those bizarre monikers
    ( Gigantic Brain LMFAO ,great band ) and artworks ( Nespithe is the shit)

    Thanks guys,keep 'em coming :kickass:
