I don't know if I've ever seen it here, but in other forums that I visit mods often move threads that are posted in the "wrong" place.  This might be a candidate?

If they count as death metal, Crimson Moonlight.

If CM doesn't count for being "too black metal," probably Sympathy.

If Sympathy's disallowed for their use of a drum machine (I know Anagogic Tyranny has live drums, but honestly they're this high mostly due to Arcane Path), then Becoming the Archetype.

If Becoming the Archetype is out for being "too core," then Woe of Tyrants.

I can't imagine why Woe of Tyrants wouldn't count as death metal, but if somebody can find a reason, then maybe Indwelling.

Those are some of my top faves, in that same order.  I also really dug the Inversion album and the Oblation, Disencumbrance, and Obliteration demos, & Scrolls of the Megilloth is great IMO.

Yeah xMMx, I liked the Inversion and Chords ft Grave comp (sounds like maybe you have originals?) pretty well when they came out, although they've slid down the pecking order somewhat over the years.  Still solid, though.  Of the demos, I'd rank them Obliteration, Oblation, Disencumbrance, although I remember at least one person way back calling the Disencumbrance the best Christian death metal ever.  Scrolls, of course, is classic!

Impending Doom gets a couple mentions here -- I haven't bothered to give their newest one any attention after being basically bored with Baptized in Filth.  Any thoughts?  I like Serpent Servant and There Will Be Violence pretty well and felt like they had pretty good personality, but as mentioned bored with BiF and haven't felt like I need another album that will probably sound basically the same.  Am I wrong?  New one different or better?

As someone who ADORES death metal, I really can't stand most Mortification, and I tolerate the rest. 

I'm huge on Indwelling (see icon). And though Impending Doom has bored me since Serpent Servant, The Sin and Doom of Godless Men and Nailed. Dead. Risen. remain two of my favorite albums of all time. Death Will Reign is step back in the right direction, though. Embodyment and Inevitable End round out my top four. Drottnar's #5, but they're not death metal (though, they implement the kind of atonality that makes good death metal IMO).

I really dig Warbound by Broken Flesh...its predecessors not so much.

I agree w/MadKraken on Impending Doom.  I was into the Sin and Doom... demo & 1st full length.  I don't enjoy their more recent releases, although they seem to be pretty well known.

The s/t Embodyment demo rules.

Grindboy, I did have original Oblation & Disencumbrance demos, but sold them when the Chords of the Grave comp came out.  I'd probably rank the 3 critical demos on that release in the same order you have.  It's a shame that comp is out of print!

Well TTDR. . . I pick Crimson Thorn and Feast Eternal!  I like Oblation and Discern too, but not as much.  And first Discern over the 2nd by quite a bit, IMO.

I guess I'm happy to hear that Warbound may be better than Forever in Flames re: Broken Flesh.  There was a lot of hype around FiF and I picked it up and found it brutal but kind of boring.  So maybe I'll give them another shot.

Early Embodyment -- yes, yes, yes.  Still awesome after all these years!

Looking through my itunes tonight, I re-discovered Divulgence--Future Seed.  Released by Bombworks in 2012.  It's great death/black metal!  More people should be aware of them.  Really excellent stuff.

Drop Dead's gotta be in this conversation, although they were more death/thrash.

I love those old Disencumbrance and Oblation demos too, but I think that Mortification's "Scrolls of the Megilloth" and "Post Momentary Affliction" are hard to beat.

Drop Dead was not that good.  Ok for a demo, but they don't belong in a "Best" conversation.

Best Christian Death Metal band is early Mortification.   "Post Momentary Affliction" CD especially.

Best secular Death Metal was DEATH.   Chuck Schuldiner is very much missed.  Amazing man, and amazing guitarist.  R.I.P. 

Chuck never made a bad CD.  The CDs I always go with from him is usually either Symbolic CD or Sound of Perseverance CD.  Both are amazing. 

Obituary and Carcass are both very good too for secular Death Metal.  Cause of Death CD from Obituary especially, and Heartwork CD from Carcass especially.

I'm surprised to hear that.  If you're referring to their first two demos, then I would agree that the sound was very subpar.  However, Our Forgotten Destiny was done very well and had a really clear and distinct sound.  But since that's the only truly great release they ever did, you could be right.  However, on the strength of Our Forgotten Destiny, I would include them in the conversation.

Cannibal corpse. Easily. Tomb of the mutilated/the bleeding are classics. Everything mortification failed to pull off unfortunately. Used to love mort, but looking back, they're nothing special. I guess for Christian metal they're good, but when your competition is bands like Crimson thorn and metanioa (smh), it's not hard to be above that. Extol is still imo hands down the best Christian heavy band. Period. Ole and Christer are brilliant.

For pure death metal, i'm liking Deuteronomium a bunch as well as haShem. Feast Eternal is good, i've been listening to them forever it seems. Sacrificium is high quality. Surprisingly, the newest Impending Doom is very good, very technical when I had written them off as scene copycats at first. I have one Terraphopbia album and one by Pantokrater I enjoy. Others with DM in the music but probably not pure: Becoming the Archetype, Demon Hunter, KSE, The Burial, Extol, Hope for the Dying, Living Sacrifice, Morty, (yes a couple albums are pure DM) Solamors and A Hill to Die Upon. Any I forget? Oh, Your Chance to Die which has a female singer/growler.

Keeping it to the Christian realm, I dig:

Bloodline Severed (if they count)
Corpse
Crimson Thorn
Ethereal Scourge
Extol
Immortal Souls
Living Sacrifice
Metanoia
Mortification 
Paramaecium
Sacrificium
Sympathy

Mort's Scrolls of the Megilloth and Extol's Undeceived are my favorite death metal albums.

Isn't this a question about a subjective topic? So to state that X band isn't good enough is merely your opinion. Drop Dead was better than some of the signed bands then, and even now. So i would say they absolutely deserve to be here. On this list of people sharing their personal opinions. In fact, they deserve it more so than some of the other bands mentioned here that aren't even death metal.

For pure death metal, I'd say:

Pantokrator - all 3 albums
Mortification - Scrolls
Living Sacrifice - Nonexistent
Extol - Burial & Undeceived
GROMS - Ascension
Ethereal Scourge (although more doom/death on most songs)
Solamors

And while they're not my favorites, I'd throw Monotheist and Possession out there as worthy of mention (but not mentioned yet).

I hadn't listened to Broken Flesh much if at all, but just checked out the s/t on Spotify.  It's pretty good stuff.  No stand-out songs really, but fast and brutal and well-played.

Early Extol
Early Mortification
Feast Eternal
Sympathy
Discern
Oblation
Crimson Thorn
Corpse
Immortal Souls
GROMS sound cool too

I can't speak for the latter but I would label Living Sacrifice's Nonexistent and Inhabit as death metal records.

Um yeah they were on Nonexistent and Inhabit.  Maybe you've only heard LS's non-death metal albums.

And so is Pantokrator.  I've been listening to death metal since 1990 so I think I'm qualified to know what it is by now.  Laughing

My favs are:

early Mort
early Living Sacrifice
Revulsed (not christian per se, but has christian members)

Some others that may not be as well known:

Day of Atonement - Only one album titled Cremation of the Guilty. Very good death metal. (Features Lincoln Bowen and Phil Gibson, both of whom were Mortification members)

Bloodwork have released some nice material

InExordium born out of Paramaecium. Again, not christian per se, but has christian members)

Fearscape - some great progressive death/black (may not strictly fit into the death metal category, but has strong influences there of)

Scourged Flesh - Put out some very good death metal

In a general order:

Extol
Blood Thirsty
Becoming the Archetype (Solamors too)
Tortured Conscience
Enshrouding (their last was more death metal than black while the first two are more black)
Bloodwork
Immortal Souls (keeps getting better IMO)
Pantokrator
Ascendant
Consuming Fire
Mortification (just the first three really)
Aceldama
Necroblation
Separatist

There are a few other bands that blur the genre line with black, doom and death metal influence:

Dalit
They Wither
Mercy
Azorrague

Not sure where to put Revulsed. I get very little from their lyrics, though I see a Christian bend in a depravity sense. I don't think in any way are they aimed that direction. Great album though.
