Immolation

One of those bands who keep kicking more and more ass with every album

They were another one of the biggies in the NYDM scene, althought didn't gain as much popularity over time. Although, they aren't an unknown name. They are a more refined techdeath band, making lots of people just claim them purely DM.

Ross Dolan vocals are low. understandable, and great. A Mikael Akerfeldt of sorts (Although the two are nothing alike)

Their newest release (Harnessing Ruin) released last year was seriously a milestone.

Love this band.

Any other fans?

I've only really listened to Harnessing Ruin, but I love all of it.
I've got several of their albums on my computer, but haven't given them all a listen.

As Alex Webster said, they are one of the greatest death metal bands ever.

Great band. Harnessing Ruin is good; they are pretty consistent.

They are the greatest! No other DM band evokes such a dark atmosphere.

Close To A World Below is the only Immolation record I have, but, it's so good. And unique.
