What Are Some Of The Absolute Best Death Metal Bands?

There are some death metal bands that sound like complete **** to me, but others like Malevolent Creation and Deicide make it impossible for me to resist headbanging. I’m looking for bands that play guitar riffs instead of random power chords. I need something brutal but exciting to play on guitar. Thanks.

    yeah deicide is awesome. well i would have to say the Death themselves, and Cannibal Corpse. But i myself like melodic death metal. like amon amarth, arch enemy, bathory, kreator, carcass, dark tranquility, in flames, at the gates, arsis, a great band called The Abscence, God Dethroned, & Mors Principum Est.
