    You may not like em, but Suffocation deserve a spot on that list.

    I didn't claim it was comprehensive or that I haven't missed any, but yeah...

    Suffocation - Human Waste/Effigy Of The Forgotten/Pierced From Within
    Immolation - Dawn Of Possession/Here In After/Failures For Gods
    Morpheus Descends - Ritual Of Infinity
    Incantation - Onward To Golgotha/Mortal Throne Of The Nazarene
    Gorguts - Considered Dead/The Erosion Of Sanity/Obscura

    These could all be included without going too far "underground."

    Hmmm...well I don't care for Suffocation anyways so I didn't mind it not being on your essentials list. They always seemed closer to brutal death metal than old school anyway despite the fact that they were around the same time period.

    Bits and pieces of it. Definitely their most old school (and best) sounding stuff. I see them as kind of a bridge between old school and brutal death metal. However, I generally don't care for their music.

    One of my fav records, unfortunatelly they are not from scandinavia, that means no one pay attention. I recommed you Sacred Sin - Eye M god / :headbang: Anguish I Harvest, another portuguese band with same vocalist of Disaffected:headbang:

    Necroharmonic allegedly has a Crematory demos compilation slated to be released sometime within the next several hundred thousand years.

    Well they have it filed under "No Release Date...Don't Ask," so I'm not expecting it any time soon, but they'll be putting out a new Funebrarum full-length soon.

    I know its been brought up before but I just want to reiterate how badass this album is:

    [​IMG]

    It really has a diverse, highly melodic sound that is, quite simply, a really satisfying listen. The only thing I dislike about it is the pick sliding in the production which can slightly take away from the enjoyment of the album. Other than that highly recommended.

    Well I know why I haven't, I saw it at my local HMV for $27 Canadian. What a fucking rip-off. I came home and found it online for like $12 US at The End. I can't believe the scams these giant record stores try to get away with.

    Anyways I'll be ordering it soon.

    I really like Cemetary 'an evil shade of grey'. tons of atmospheric slower/middle paced guitar work and nice harmonies. You really only hear the picking on the fast parts majority of the time and yeah it's odd but I was never really bothered by it.

    also Sorcery -bloodchilling tales is classic imo.

    I decided to check out Obscurity (the 80s Swedish dm one). Honestly, I was not impressed. The music is primitive and the production is horrid. It actually sounds more like very early black metal than it does death metal. A primitive blur of noise, like Necrovore.
