However for a newbie this can be pretty overwhelming, with so many bands that fall under death metal's style and tone a starting point can be pretty damn difficult! Where do you start with a genre that has so many bands that whilst all fall under the same genre can sound completely different from another?!

As this handy list will provide ten albums you must absolutely listen to fully divulge and experience the world of death metal! For a newbie who has hardly heard any of the bands mentioned in this list or the hardcore fan of the genre this list is absolutely essential to commit your passion and love for one of metal's most enjoyable sub-genres.
