Cannibal Corpse - Tomb Of The Mutilated (1992)

This album is easily one of the greatest death metal albums of all time - it has everything death metal should have and nothing death metal shouldn't have. It has the grinding, brutal, crushing guitars, the brutal drumming, the excellent and intricate basswork, and extremely guttural death growls and grunts from one of the greatest death metal vocalists of all time, Chris Barnes. It represents everything death metal is meant to be - brutal, heavy, skullcrushing, vicious, nasty, horrific, disgusting, terrifying, malevolent, and completely uncompromising. Any true death metal fan should definitely have this album in his collection, or forever be a weak poser who cannot handle real death metal.
