I'm generally not a technical death metal fan as that genre tends to be too frantic. However, I have this band's last two albums, and although I have to be in the right mood to listen to a whole album all the way through, when they nail it they really nail it ... like with the two accessible examples below (the latter being one of my favorite metal songs of all time). One of the tightest and most proficient death metal bands in existence, but definitely not for the uninitiated.
Just realized I haven't seen Carnal Forge mentioned anywhere. Did a search and nope, it's nowhere to be found. Let's remedy that. This is one of their slower cuts, but they can really crank up the speed and remain super tight. From my favorite Carnal Forge album, Aren't You Dead Yet? ...
In addition, here's another band that at times sounds a little like Carnal Forge. Again, one of their slower cuts. They can crank it faster a couple of notches too. This one is from their self-titled 2008 album, but my favorite Cataract album is 2004's With Triumph Comes Loss. The Killing the Eternal album is great too.
Just found some metal being played somewhere I wasn't expecting it. I have been lazy all day and enjoying some netflix while the wife and kids are off visiting some family and finally got around to watching Tai Chi Zero and the sequel Tai Chi Hero. Silly movies but entertaining enough. The main character was born a freak and has a "horn" growing out of his head that when punched or pushed on hard enough causes him to go into berserker mode. The music that they play while in berserker mode as well as the end credits happens to be In Flames. They play the songs 'The Mirrors Truth' and 'The Hive'. Kinda cool in my opinion and totally unexpected. Metal knows no boundaries!

Blind was one of my favorite albums from the early 90's. Can't say I like everything they do, but they hit a home run with that one.
Thanks for the recommendation. I got into them a bit with Deliverance but never heard anything before that other than the song Dance of the Dead. I've been listening to the rest of the album, it's good - I didn't know they ever had such crunchy guitars. I hear some Anthrax influence.
