Weird all over the place year. TotG is my favorite Slough Feg. In past years Agalloch would have been much higher. Devourment gets number two for taking what Suffocation did before them and making it something disgusting, stupid... and a vicious knuckledragging gorefest. COPRO PHAGIA! Great Cannibal Corpse album... and a bunch of awesome black metal.

1. The Lord Weird Slough Feg - Twilight of the Gods
2. Devourment - Molesting the Decapitated
3. Dornenreich - Bitter ist's dem Tod zu dienen
4. Cannibal Corpse - Bloodthirst
5. Paysage d'Hiver - S/T
6. Windir - Arntor
7. Agalloch - Pale Folklore
8. Sabbat - Karisma
9. Cirith Gorgor - Onwards to Spectral Defile
10. Runemagick - Enter the Realm of Death
 
1. Kyprian's Circle - Noitatulen vartija
2. Nox Intempesta - Damnanus - Dominum
3. Warloghe - The First Possession
4. Sabbat - Karisma
5. Disciples of Mockery - Prelude to Apocalypse
6. Immolation - Failures For Gods
7. Dominus Xul - The Primigeni Xul (I Condemned My Enemies)
8. Aeternus - Shadows of Old
9. Avenger - Fall of Devotion, Wrath and Blasphemy
10. Adramelech - Pure Blood Doom

HM:



List edited. Somehow I initially forgot about that fucking beastly Dominus Xul album. I blame RYM.

Nice list. That Avenger album fucking rules. Surprised to see no mention of Bewitched - Dragonflght from you!

You’re also one of the last people I thought would be listing Deeds of Flesh!

I completely forgot about the Bewitched album, thanks for the reminder. It'll probably bump Deeds of Flesh out. I'm not often in the mood for that style of death metal but it hits the spot perfectly when I am. I should probably revisit Angelcorpse and Demoncy while I'm at it.
 
List so I have it for ranking:

Black Label Society - Sonic Brew
Control Denied - The Fragile Art of Existence
Testament - The Gathering
Type O Negative - World Coming Down
Opeth - Still Life (lol at being #1 on RYM)
Gorgasm - Stabwound Intercourse
Virgin Steele - The House of Atreus, Act I
Megadeth - Risk
Marduk - Panzer Division Marduk
Liquid Tension Experiment - Liquid Tension Experiment 2
Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder
Agalloch - Pale Folklore
Demons and Wizards - S/T
Immortal - At the Heart of Winter
Dream Theater - Metropolis Part 2
Amon Amarth - The Avenger
Katatonia - Tonight's Decision
In Flames - Colony
Amorphis - Tuonela
Burzum - Hildskjalf
Manes - Under Ein Blodraud Maane
Disgorge - Cranial Impalement

Decent year

You’re also missing Nox Intempesta! Sort it out!

I remember that one because I discovered it was a 1999 release when trying to do my 1998 list.

Is it just me, or was this a pretty shit year for death metal? I can think of Sargantus - The Enlightenment and Immolation - Failures for Gods and I need to revisit Adramelech - Pure Blood Doom and Nominon - Diabolical Bloodshed. Is there anything I'm missing?
