Fields Of The Nephilim is death?
Otherwise, prime list. You are singlehandedly making the UK more and more interesting to me.

Just that album, which has a pretty sizeable death/thrash vein running through it. Probably a bit of a stretch to have it here, but as I say, good UK death is somewhat of a rarity (I'm sure there's plenty hidden out there though).

Cancer?
Troy Killjoy - 30.11.2013 at 22:54  
Ignominious Incarceration's only full-length before they changed their name to The Soulless is pretty cool. Melodic technical death metal with a bit of groove, albeit fairly unoriginal.


Also some UK brutal death metal: Cerebral Bore and Amputated.



Albums I don't think you'll personally enjoy, but might be worth adding.
!J.O.O.E.! - 30.11.2013 at 23:06  
Yeah I've tried to make this list specific to things I personally enjoy instead of an exhaustive list of bands. That being said I don't dislike those three bands, Amputated are fun live, but I dunno, I don't really ever listen to them so I feel like if I added them I'd end up adding other bands that I don't mind, rather than ones I genuinely listen to every now and then and keep it a list of the best of the country. That being said, I may stretch to a couple of these to balance things out and to hit that elusive 30 mark.

As for Cancer, I dunno, they never really did anything for me.

For me neither and tbh they didn't anything for most people that were into death metal at the time. An irrelevant band it was.

Yeah I think having Benediction here is a stretch. I don't think it needs Cancer as well.

yeah even Benediction is a stretch although they were less irrelevant back in the day than Cancer, but only marginally

Dyscarnate write solid stuff, there's potential for more from them in the future I think. I'd say the same for Bloodshot Dawn as well.

Never thought of Akercocke as Death Metal?!? At least not pure DM. Seemed more black (and wanky) than Death.

And both Napalm Death and Lock Up are mainly grind. Surely Napalm Death would've been better represented by Harmony Corruption or Utopia Banished?

Yet not a single Carcass album?!? But Benediction are present?

If you don't think Akercocke's last 3 albums are 80%+ death metal then you need to go back and listen to them. Only their first two could be considered predominantly black metal, maybe not even the second album actually.

And new-era Napalm Death and Lock-Up are as much death as they are grind, and thus classifiable as deathgrind, and thus warrant a place here.
deadone - 10.02.2014 at 00:35  
Never listened to Akercocke past first 2 albums.

And what about no Carcass?

And why a modern Napalm Death album and not the more classic ones?


Just curious!

You should listen to Words That Go Unspoken. I imagine you'd like it.

If I find another 9 good UK death metal bands I'll put Carcass as the 10th, but I don't think anyone needs recommending Carcass

As for Napalm Death I was never very fond of Scum. Harmony Corruption might be better here but I've always really like Smear Campaign.

Scum much like Reeks is shit on quite a few levels, yet one can appreciate it for what it did to extreme music.

By Harmony Corruption, Napalm Death had gone "full Florida" in terms of sound. From memory they even recorded it at Morrisound Studios (home to mucho DM bands at time) and had Scott Burns producing. Ol' Scot was probably as much responsible for the Florida DM sound as the bands themselves (a list of stuff he produced: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Burns_(producer) ).

Fear, Emptiness, Despair sounded heavy as hell but completely unremarkable and quite boring.

And then there was Diatribes on which started going more groove metal. It was ok but Barney's vocals sounded a bit daft and it was lacking in good enough riffs to make it passable for groove metal.

Personally my favourite ND album is Utilitarian.

Interesting list, although i'm not a fan of British death metal in general, but I think Paradise Lost - Lost Paradise deserves to be on the list.

That album belongs on a doom list, not a death metal list.

Personally I think it is more death metal than doom.

A lot of death metal in there indeed, but it's more regarded a doom metal classic rather than a death metal classic. Well, specifically it's of course regarded a doom death classic so in that sense you're right because doom death means death metal with doom metal elements. But I still wouldn't add it to this list simply because of the doom in the sound. This list is for death metal, not death doom or doom death.
