Don't even start me talkin', Symps.
I could talk death metal with ya all day long, I reckon. As for 'recs', they'd run like a river if I were start trotting them out.
Seriously, in my eyes, there's actually been literally tons of terrific death metal albums and awesome acts, over the last twenty plus years of the genre's existence. And hey, I've already given you a bunch of recommendations.
What are the dm bands you have heard, and probably liked, most recently?
I think I've always loved Brutal-DM best, overall. And most (not all) melodic dm, the least.
As for a few new recommendations:
You might wanna check out Hate Eternal's latest disc, Phoenix Amongst the Ashes
Decapitated's new one, Carnival Is Forever
Devourment (US) ~ Unleash the Carnivore
Pestilence's latest, Doctrine
^ these are all new albums by these great old bands. Find out which ones among these wow you much.
