    What are some of your favorite old school death metal albums?
    List off some of the best albums you have heard in the old school scene. There will be a little speculation on when the old school scene started. So if you believe 1985 is the start with seven churches, go from there. Or 1987 with scream bloody gore. I'd say old school dm faded away at around 92-93.

    One album to rule them all: Immolation's Dawn of Possession!!! Some others:
    Morbid Angel-Altars of Madness
    Cannibal Corpse-Butchered at Birth
    Death-Leprosy
    Obituary-Slowly We Rot
    Suffocation-Effigy of the Forgotten
    Deicide-S/T
    I figured I'd get all the obligatory big names and basics down right off the bat.

    I wont go with the obvious answers everyone should know. I'm a pretty big fan of osdm, and have a bit of fun digging through the more obscure stuff.

    Necrosanct - Incarnate
    Shub Niggurath - Evilness and Darkness Prevails
    Torchure - Beyond the Veil
    Horror of Horrors - Sounds of Eerie
    Molested - Blod-Draum
    Atrocity - Hallucinations
    Crematory - Transmigration
    Morgoth - Cursed
    Uncanny - Splenium for Nyktophobia
    Carnage - Dark Recollections (this doesnt get near the praise it should.)
    Gorefest - False
    Sickening Gore - Destructive Reality
    Viogression - Expound and Exhort
    Unholy - From the Shadows

    I like how it went all the big names, some a little lesser known, to super obscure stuff like Torchure and Shub-Niggurath. Everyone of these is straight kick ass though!

    Death metal isnt really my thing, but Morbid Angel managed to get my interest, I would say Altars, Blessed, and Covenant are some of my favorite albums of all time. But aside from that, I dont find much appeal in the genre. Same with black metal, I just like Celtic Frost and everything else I have heard just doesnt hit the spot.

    If Covenant is one of your favorite albums of all time but no other death metal could grab your interest, chances are you haven't looked very hard.

    Pestilence, Bolt Thrower, Pestilence..Autopsy have interested me. But honestly when you look at those bands I find that they only have 1-2 truly solid albums for each band. MA put out 6 albums I could listen to front to back with ease. And I do find that many DM vocalists are incoherent, I liked Dave Vincent cause I could understand what was going on without having to try hard to decipher what im hearing...I could just enjoy the music instead.

    Sentenced - North From Here
    Sentenced - Shadows of the Past
    Demilich - Nespithe
    Demigod - Slumber of Sullen Eyes
    Leprosy
    Altars of Madness

    Just so, OSDM is not my top thing.

    Bolt Thrower are fucking awesome. Their records are all in the same vein, they don't change their style a bit through their career but the shit is so good no one cares about this.

    Cianide - The Dying Truth

    Necrophobic - The Nocturnal Silence

    surprised no one said Entombed Left Hand Path yet. I know it came out in '90 but it's still what I'd classify as old school dm. A lot of early Scandinavian dm was before it turned to gayness.
