I have to agree that Death is the ultimate death metal band for me, but very closely followed by Possessed (Seven churches!). Although I must say that I like the first two Death albums best, I never got into the technical stuff. Way back in the olden days, somewhere around 1992/1993, me and my band opened for Death. That was nice, Chuck was always one of my main inspirations (along with Nick Holmes and Tom G. Warrior) in developing my vocal style back then.

So to get less "Internet stalker" creepy and slightly off-topic as I'm not saying they're the best dm band, but the new Blood Incantation album Starspawn is ridiculously good.

Well, my Muffs name is an anagram, so yeah that's me... :hihi:
I did the first album "Always...", the Death/Doom period, pre-Anneke.

My favourite is Opeth. Yeah, they are playing progressive death. I think no one could create such a melody within the Death Metal like this band. 'Black Rose Immortal' is a masterpiece!

Top five or ten would be more reasonable or maybe even a general metal thread. That said my go to for the past few years has been Bloodbath. I'm not calling them the best but all around super solid. I'm a big sucker for a well produced Boss HM-2 guitar sound.

ps Mithras is a nice change from the standard approach to dm.

Mitras is great ! Love the spacey-ness thing they have going on their first two albums.

My favorite DM band is Bolt Thrower by far. Very close are Incantation, Asphyx and (more recent and more of a crossover between death and black) Teitanblood. I highly recommend them if you've never heard of them.

Weird, I was just thinking about this thread this morning and how I still think Cannibal Corpse is the best straight up DM band. Gorguts would probably be second but we're already getting less straight up.
