I would like get advice how wipe my old drive completely. I have read about hdparm, DBAN, HDDErase, wipe, dd, shred, bleach-bit, sfill,... I'm sure there are many more to be found.

Which method is up to date and will work with most pc computers now?

What about speed versus security (quality of wiping)?

And how should it be used? Please show with command lines (if a CLI method)!
