Well, I like some death metal but I need to open my eyes a bit. I like Necrophagist, Dethklok (yes they count) and some Dying Fetus, but I know there are a lot more and better bands out there. So if you could reccomend some good bands and/or songs that would be awesome. Thanks.

Well I don't know about solos but how about that Smoke on the Water riff. It's like...impossible.

Use the rec thread, but anyway, check out Death, Morbid Angel, Nile, Decapitated, Carcass.
I'm too lazy to submit more.
Follow the smoke toward the riff filled land
Dethklok don't count, but you're new, you're forgiven =P.

I recommend Necroticism and Heartwork-era Carcass, Death, Gorguts (don't listen to Obscura just yet, you'll be put off the whole genre forever if you do. It's a great album, but it's messed up and it's really ****ing weird to someone who hasn't listened to much death metal), Atheist (highly highly ****ing recommended. My avatar is their first album), Pestilence, Dismember, and Martyr.

Ibanez SZ520/Ibanez ORM-1/Ibanez RG7321/Pocket POD/Crate GX/Boss HM-2
Cannibal Corpse
Morbid Angel
Bolt Thrower

yes I AM obssessed with old school death metal

Might as well start at where death metal started, even though most of those are technically "thrash," but are the protypes for death metal.

Only get their early albums, also. Except for Death, get all their albums.
^^Oh wow, you listed big, popular, extremely well known old-school death metal bands, how knowledgeable of you...

Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.
For unrivaled obedience, user King_ofKumbucha is awarded this spot of honor.
Carcass, Napalm Death, Bolt Thrower, Morbid Angel, Possessed, Death, Obituary, etc. For more melodic stuffs, At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility, Quo Vadis etc.

That should get you started. Then, just lurk around here, surf myspace and check out the support acts on festivals to find new bands. Applies to any kind of music really.
