Death Metal Top 56

The best DEATH METAL SONGS ever

It all started with Black Sabbath. A band with low tuned dark riffs and dark lyrics. In the early 1970s, their horror and occult inscribed texts and music was a form that was exploring the border. The band Motorhead in the mid-1970s also had an important influence on the later extreme metal. Their heavy metal music interspersed with punk rock gave a unique sound. At the end of the 70s inspired by the energy and the success of the punk music, there was a new batch of bands. Called the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM).

Venom arrived in the early 1980s. By far the meanest boy from the NWOBHM class. The occult was extended much further. With a blistering sound and harsh vocals. They were a source of inspiration for countless bands, such as Slayer. An American band that was founded in ’81 and was heavily inspired by Venom, but the boundaries went even further in terms of energy and speed. The Thrash metal was born.
In ’83 the band Possessed was founded in LA California. With their debut album Seven Chruches, they were a link between Thrash metal and the later Death Metal.

Meanwhile, an other band was formed in Orlando Florida called Mantas. Which stretched the sound of Possessed a bit further. This band that changed their name to Death in ’85 is recognized as one of the founders of the Death Metal. Soon there followed more bands like, Obituary, Morbid Angel, Necrophagia and Autopsy. It continued to grow. In the late eighties and early nineties, many bands released classical albums. Not only from America, but also from Europe. A new genre was born in heavy metal land. An extreme one, called Death Metal.

And since the Death Metal genre started about 30 years ago with the release of Necrophagia’s “Season of the Dead” and Death’s “Scream Bloody Gore” and took off from then on, it seemed like a good idea to organize a Death Metal Top 50 songs.
