The Curse Weekly Playlist: Old School Death Metal Revival That Doesn't Suck

Based on some of the review scores here, one would think I despise Old School Death Metal.  Thing is, I don't: I just dislike more than half of it.  I've said so before, but it bares mentioning again: as far as I am concerned, Death Metal didn't exist until New York and Finland started making it in the early 90's.  The early Floridian and Swedish scenes, the birth places of Death Metal, will always be... well, shit.  At least for me: bands like Master, Entombed, Obituary, Dismember hold absolutely no appeal for me in even the slightest.  Truth is, I can't even sit through a song without getting bored to tears and throwing on Onward to Golgotha.

But this doesn't mean I hate Old School Death Metal, or it's recent revival.  For every shitty SwedDeath worship band, there is usually one band doing something awesome.  In honor of these bands, my weekly playlist will consist of Old School Death Metal Revival bands that do not actually suck.  Learn to respect, Miasmal's of the world:
