Something I do want to know from people here who do happen to listen to extreme music is what bands particularly capture your interest the most. Ill get back to the OP with my own list. Morbid Angel - One of the major pioneers of death metal and THE first death metal band I got myself into. Love their first 3 albums I consider major classics. They had some great Steve Tucker material also. Only 2 blemishes for me was Heretic and obviously Illud Divinum Insanus. But going back to albums like Altars, Blessed, Covenant, Formulas and Gateways I love this band. Trey is an awesome guitarist. Cannibal Corpse - Overtaken Morbid for my favourite DM band. Consistent band they always put out great albums full of brutal and technical death metal. Love their album covers and ****ed up song names too. lol George Fisher and the boys are legends.
