In case you weren't aware, there's been something of a resurgence in bands playing old-school style death metal recently, probably to counteract the soulless wankery that has taken precedent since the turn of the millenium. This is a compilation of some of my favourites from this scene. (I will note that my colleague HeySharpshooter is somewhat more of an expert than me; if you like the style, I highly recommend all of his posts).


1. Bastard Priest
- Total Mutilation (from Under The Hammer Of Destruction)

2. Funebrarum - Cursed Eternity (from The Sleep Of Morbid Dreams)

3. Hooded Menace - Terror Castle (from Never Cross The Dead)

4. Sonne Adam - Take Me Back To Where I Belong (from Transformation)

5. Abysmal Dawn - Leveling The Plane Of Existence (from Leveling The Plane Of Existence)

6. Bonesaw - Kill, Fuck And Eat (from Sawtopsy)

7. Decrepitaph - Desecrate Sacred Flesh (from Profane Doctrines Unburied)

8. Burial Invocation - Through The Void Of Obscurity (from Rituals Of The Grotesque)

9. Cruciamentum - Convocation Of Crawling Chaos (from Convocation Of Crawling Chaos)

10. Mortuous - External Deformities (from Mors Immortalis)

N.B. The reason for Abysmal Dawn's presence here is that they are akin to classic era Morbid Angel - amongst the rest they will stick out like a sore thumb.
