What year did you discover Death Metal?
What was the record/band that drew you in?

For me, OBITUARY and CAUSE OF DEATH, late summer 1990.
I heard COD first then SLOWLY WE ROT very soon after and I was instantly hooked.

Nokturnel - Welcome to New Jersey was my first "death metal" purchase, followed by Revenant - Prophecies of a Dying World
this was during a time when I was just discovering metal beyond Slayer and thrash in general (around 1996?)
I think what happened was my fascination with black metal trumped, to this day, any true appreciation of death metal Sad

still, Prophecies of a Dying World is one of my favourite metal albums, even though I'm not "into" or infomred about death metal, the way most are
it's dripping with pure fucking evil, and holds my attention much better than most of the "classics" in the genre

I heard Bolt Thrower when I was 11 or 12 or so, as it was on frequent rotation at the Games Workshop I spent all my time at, but I was more into Metallica, White Zombie, Megadeth etc. I didn't click with death until I was about 16 or so.

First death metal song I heard was Deicide - Dead by Dawn in middle school. But the two albums that got me really hooked were Cryptopsy - None So Vile and Morbid Angel - Covenant during my first year in high school around the same time I was starting to get into black metal.

I'm an old fukker ... grew up in the 80's and listened to Priest, Maiden, the Big Four then grew out of it when I went to college and grad school and started working...

Then about ten years ago at a local music store - when they still had those - I found a copy of "Dechristianize" in the used CD Bin!

I've been playing catch up ever since & it's honestly been a fun ride so far Very Happy

Made friends in 8th grade with a kid who loaned me LEPROSY. The year was 1988. Deicide, Obituary, and all of the other big bands were soon to follow.

Lamb of God - New American Gospel was my first death metal album. Haven't listened to it in a while, probably spin it tonight. Hey, if you guys wanna listen to New American Gospel the same time I'm listening to it, just start at precisely 7:00pm and we can "rrarrrggh gahluubbagaalubb!! Junjunjun!!! Junjunjunjun!!!" together!!

I'd say about 2003-2004, that means I was about 15-16.
Two videos I found on a CD-R that I borrowed from my schoolmate:
Cannibal Corpse - Sentenced To Burn
Six Feet Under - The Day The Dead Walked
The first complete album was Bringer Of Blood by Six Feet Under, I got it from the same schoolmate, as far as I remember it was sent to him by his uncle who lived in USA, we lived in such a shithole that it was nearly impossible to find good music in the local shops.

Kataklysm - Mystical Gate and Brutality - Screams of Anguish when I was too young for it Wink <10

Then my personal taste evolved when Tiamat's Wildhoney came out - then going backwards to Clouds - Astral Sleep - Sumerian Cry

I discovered Defleshed at the same time as Metallica thanks to my dads CD collection and I was fucking terrified. I used to play it for friends because it was so insane, I couldn't pick out a single note. Years and years later it's actually a pretty good album!

In 89 / 90 when NIHILIST, AUTOPSY, BOLT THROWER, DEATH, GRAVE etc. reigned.
The first albums i bought myself in my teenager years where Entombed "Left hand path", Abomination s/t, Carnage "Dark recollections" etc. etc., then came Dismember, Grotesque / At the Gates, Pungent Stench, Nirvana 2002, Morbid Angel ("Abominations of desolation"....eternally!), Incubus, Mayhem, Carcass... But Bathory asways had been the Alpha - Omega, though.
