Out of all the genres, Death Metal never failed to please me. So here am sharing my 10 best Death Metal songs of 2014. They are not in order and hope you will enjoy! Keep Smashing!
- “Nefarious Conclusion” by Question.
Dark one, with killer riffs. I loved the elements that sounded dark but fitted so well with the riffs and blast beats.
Origin – Mexico |Album – Doomed Passages
- “Sea Of Thoughts” by Seprevation
I love quick and aggressive songs. This one is definitely one of them. It’s very crunchy I terms of delivery and sounds tight.

Death Metal at it tightest form and you will be hooked to this due to its tight delivery of wicked riffs and breakdowns all over in accurate way. This song deserves huge applause for brutal songwriting with tight production.
