My Top 60 Favourite Death Metal Albums (including melodeath and deathrash)

I know some of the albums are more thrash than death, but I added them anyway, because I guess they could appeal to death metal fans too. Many of the albums are not so well-known, but I prefer them over the classics. If you have any other suggestions of underground albums you think I could enjoy based on my choices, you can suggest me.

1. In Flames - Clayman
2. The Crown - Eternal Death
3. Sororicide - The Entity
4. Pestilence - Malleus Maleficarum
5. Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness
