* Classic Swedish band, At The Gates, has their iconic album, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=614OdhFLUUU "Slaughter of the Soul"]]. It's hard hitting yet melodic with one of the most glorious guitar tones in MelodicDeathMetal(created with a boss HM-2 and Metal Zone through a valve amp). Here's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URhmC865SGI the title track]]

* Meshuggah: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkrjE4QRsys "Rational Gaze"]]. Also 3:06-onward of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmVzqjycA-o "Straws Pulled at Random"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIXFKsghS6s MIND-SIGNAL TRANSMISSION, PEAKED, DISTORTED, BENT! UN-RE-STRAINED!!]] "Closed Eye Visuals" is awesome.
** No mention of ''Nothing'' would be complete without [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kB9c0rOm3q4 "Spasm"]]. Coming out of left field with the lowest frequencies their strings of steel have ever unleashed, massaging the inside of your skull; Tomas's robotic, almost seductive sounding vocals; the steady peal of high palm-muted notes sounding like a Sega Genesis serenading a lover at Carnegie Hall. It's strangely beautiful, hypnotic, even serene...[[LastNoteNightmare then the final measures unexpectedly shift in pitch, the elements now dissonant and clashing]]; a not-so-gentle reminder that this is still fucking ''Meshuggah'' you're listening to.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qc98u-eGzlc "Bleed"]]. Every moment of it.
** The album ''Catch Thirtythree''. The whole thing. 13 tracks. 45 minutes. One song. Pure awesome. Special mentions to certain tracks on it are:
*** When the rhythm guitars come back in during "The Paradoxical Spiral". Pure groove/doom evilness.
*** The guitar solo in "Entrapment". While not a super technical solo, it just manages to sound so completely alien that it pushes it into deliberate UncannyValley territory. Also that bend at the end of the song.
*** "Mind's Mirrors." The pitch shifted, robotic sounding vocals manage to sound both beautiful yet ominous at the same time, the lyrics are incredibly trippy, and the outro leading up to the next track is great.
*** "In Death is Death", which is just... awesome.
*** Finally, "Sum". Everything from 1:00 on is perfect. Especially Jens' screams.
** "Combustion" is a fucking ''insane'' song.
** What makes "New Millennium Cyanide Christ" so awesome is the use of UncommonTime throughout the song. The entire song shifts a lot between time signatures, but it gives still the listener an illusion that the song is written in CommonTime. And not to mention... THAT KICK-ASS RIFF!
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBEUTntgMOI I]]". All twenty-one minutes of it. This could be thought of as ''Catch-Thirtythree''[='s=] little brother, but by no means should it be dismissed as a lesser work; it is every bit as intense and rewarding. If the scream at around one minute into the song doesn't get you all pumped up, you simply don't like extreme metal.
* Everything made by extreme prog metal band Music/{{Opeth}} is bound to become absolutely epic. ''In all possible senses''. Here's an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nPCtYnMzLA example.]]

* Macabre are one of the pioneering bands of both DeathMetal and {{Grindcore}}, having been formed in 1984, so they deserve some mention here. With a discography dedicated to the crimes of RealLife {{Serial Killer}}s, their output is not only quite high on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness, but they also add a touch of whimsy here and there. Check out [[https://youtu.be/GQv1-mqcGZM Ed Gein]], [[https://youtu.be/HHYhG805eKA Vampire of Düsseldorf]], or for some DarkComedy, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUxb139X-N4 their own twist on the Ooompa Loompas' theme]].

* If you know your Death Metal, you probably know Incantation. If you don't, they play Death Metal in its most dark, cavernous and downright evil form. Check out, just to name some examples, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeqHXbiIPy8 Golgotha]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1aMhfvumas The Ibex Moon]], and [[https://youtu.be/CI7mtsWbdYM Shadows of the Ancient Empire]].

* Electrocution was a short-lived Italian Death/Thrash nobody group that came and dropped ''Inside the Unreal'' and called it a career, at least until they reformed in recent years after the Internet gave them a new fanbase. With songs like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufItX04CM68 Premature Burial]], it's hard not to see why.

* Music/{{Dismember}} needs a mention here, their entire ''Like an Ever Flowing Stream'' album could easily qualify, so let's start with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gtUcFRGmWI Override of the Overture]].
