Playing To My Strengths: Facing Death And Its Technicalities

What to expect; incredibly challenging and technically-proficient death metal, or death metal noted for stifling and dense atmospheric prevalence, or both, that may or may not be traversable in one go. Listener's discretion is advised.

Many albums featured here may borrow elements from other genres (prog, thrash, melodeath, grindcore, post, etc.), but the dominant stench of complexity-laden death metal is forever present, and so deserve to be mentioned here.

1. 7th Nemesis - Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow
2. !T.O.O.H.! - Order And Punishment (Řád A Trest)
3. Ævangelist - De Masticatione Mortuorum In Tumulis
4. A Loathing Requiem - Psalms Of Misanthropy
5. A Million Dead Birds Laughing - Xen

Best Of 2010

I rated 1st Place 10/10; 2nd-6th Place 9/10 and 7th-24th Place 8/10. So it was kind of hard for me to create this list, because there are many albums with a same ranking. There is some arbitrariness in there especially around the 12th-20th place.

1. Opeth - In Live Concert At The Royal Albert Hall
2. Solution .45 - For Aeons Past
3. Asphyx - Live Death Doom
4. Misery Index - Heirs To Thievery
5. At The Gates - Purgatory Unleashed
