Who is the best selling death metal band of all time?
This question can be a bit more ambiguous than you realise. Out of all the band which played Death Metal, Sepultura would be it. However, none of the albums they released during their Death Metal period would be particularly high grossing albums. Out of straightforward, true-to-form Death Metal bands, who haven't deviated away from it, Cannibal Corpse would be the band. As for the so-called Melodeath bands, they're irrelevant.
None other than Death itself.
Cannibal Corpse. babe! EDIT: It's actually Death. Cannibal Corpse are the best-selling in America.
The best selling melodic death metal album would be the "Dethalbum" by Dethklok.
In Flames, with reportedly 2.3 millions of records sold worldwide, as of May 2009.
Dragonforce!!! 8D The guy above me has answered wrongly, Dragonforce is a power metal band, As for me, the most famous Death Metal band I can think of is In Flames.
The best female death metal singer would be from Arch Enemy.
Cannibal Corpse is the best selling Death Metal band of all time. Their album sales have gone over 600,000 total during their careers.
It is hard to pick who is the best death metal band but in my oppinion, Dying Fetus is my favourite. Also Cannibal Corpse and The Faceless are good too
Gothenburg's finest , In Flames. Likely In Flames. I would say the band Death itself. it is all just opinion anyway.
Children of Bodom isn't thrash metal. It's melodic death metal. They are influenced by thrash, though.
The best selling American rock band is 'Queens' and 'Elvis Presley'.
They are a heavy metal experimental rock band. Basically a band with a really heavy sound, but they mix various genres. From death metal to soul. But, alternative experimental metal suits them best.
The Beatles. They Are Infact THE Greatest Selling Band Ever.
Korpiklaani is often thought to be the best folk metal band of all time.
Slipknot is not death metal. A-2 Some morons think that just because a vocalist has a gritty low voice this makes them death metal. Untrue. Slipknot is sort of its own genre or music, but it is classified as Nu-Metal. Other bands of this genre include Korn, Nine Inch Nails, Disturbed, that kind of sound. If you want death metal a good band to start with is Job For A Cowboy. Not the best of… Read More
Skillet is da best band
Well the best metal band is Metallica or Medadeth (no "a" in death). Some other ones are Disturbed, Godsmack, and Slipknot(if you like scream o) If you're new to metal, go in gently with Iron Maiden or Def Leppard or Saxon or Judas Priest.
some good death bands are mortician, cannibal corpse, cattle decapiation. I personally prefer Whitechapel. There amazing. Suicide Silence is also good.
"Iron Maiden are the best metal band and one of the best rock bands there has ever been" said by Lars Ulrich (Drummer of Metallica)
Death Metal Arch Enemy Suffocation Cannibal Corpse Entombed Deicide Obituary Carcass Morbid Angel Possessed Death Black Metal Carpathian Forest Enslaved Gorgoroth Thorns Satyricon Emperor Burzum Immortal Darkthrone Mayhem
Of course there is no definite answer, but I would go with Slayer. so true. also depends on what KIND of metal nu-metal is probably korn death metal is either nile or opeth heavy metal is probably slayer groove metal is pantera i think those are enough examples.
The best heavy metal song has to be Prosthetics by Slipknot... Well, technically, they're a Nu Metal band and not a heavy metal band, so I would have to say Seasons in the Abyss by Slayer.

Some of the best death metal bands have been Death, Possessed, Morbid Angel, Carcass and Obituary.
Actually, ( I'm not trying to be a kill joy!) The Beatles are pop music, and they sold 600 million. The second best selling band in the world, Led Zeppelin, is a rock band who sold 350 million. So, in my opinion, Led Zeppelin is the best selling rock band of all time. They are my favorite band ever, but I got the information from biographies, okay? I'm not just making up this stuff!
Well the term rock is quite loose! It goes from pop-punk to death metal and all genres in between so going by that logic the best rock band (well their actually screamo but who cares) are ASKING ALEXANDRIA!!!!! END OF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because Chuck Billy is the best singer on earth, his growl is so low that it scares Satan. It is also because Eric Peterson is the mastermind of death/thrash metal.

The Spice Girls have sold over 60million records worldwide and are therefore the best selling female group of all time. However, as the Spice Girls do not play their own instruments they cannot techinically be considered a "band" so the best selling female "band" of all time would be The Dixie Chicks who have sold in the region of 30million records worldwide.

This question doesn't have any one correct answer, because not everybody will agree on which metal band is the best one in the world. Some people may think one band is the best while others do not, and so on. If you would like to find out which metal bands are preferred by large numbers of people, you might try conducting a poll, such as on a forum for fans of metal music.
