Death Metal is a split album by the bands Helloween, Hellhammer, Running Wild and Dark Avenger. It contains the only recorded material of the German band Dark Avenger.

The album offers an interesting point of view of the ebullience and creativity of the Central European metal scene in the mid-80s. At that time Running Wild had yet to develop their "pirate metal" schtick and considered themselves a black metal band. Helloween themselves were more of a thrashy speed metal act rather than the melodic power metal vehicle they'll develop into. Hellhammer were the darker and heavier band of the foursome and would later be regarded as pioneers and inspirators by generations of European extreme metallers.

The Running Wild tracks were featured in the album Masquerade, the Hellhammer tracks in the album Apocalyptic Raids 1990 A.D., and the Helloween tracks in the album Walls of Jericho.
