Death
Live In L.A.

Ooph Death. Not looking forward to that at all. What I am looking forward to more is hearing this live document of the legendary band in concert in 1998. Recorded on the tour for their final album Sound of Perseverance, it is a timely reminder of the raw power and intense playing of the band in their heyday. Originally issued to help raise money for leader Chuck Schuldiner's cancer treatment. Sadly Schuldiner succumbed to that thing that we all must meet eventually in 2001 but through documents like this his legend lives on.

Death
Human

Death’s 1994 release pushes further into progressive territory, drafting in Sadus bassist Steve DiGiorgio and members of fusion metallers Cynic. While this direction produced the instrumental Cosmic Sea, the album might be the band’s most accessible, with tracks like Suicide Machine and Together As One among the band’s catchiest (though Kiss cover God of Thunder isn’t strictly essential). There’s plenty of good old-fashioned aggression evident too, making this one of Death’s most satisfying releases.

Death
Spiritual Healing

Each Death album represents a progressive advance in the genre that shared the band’s name. Here Chuck Schuldiner and co. focus on technical and compositional complexity rather than bludgeoning brutality, aided by the liquid leads of Wunderkind James Murphy (no, not the LCD Soundsystem guy). Lyrical content moves on from the grotesqueries of Leprosy to more psychological and social concerns. Back in 1990, it may have seemed a little polite amid newcomers like Suffocation and Cannibal Corpse as well as the burgeoning Swedish scene, but as an absolute cornucopia of quality riffs, it’s aged well.

Spiritual Healing

Death metal-defining band Death really did have a name that worked very well for a death metal band. Still considered hugely influential on the heavy metal scene, this is Death's third album. It was orignally unleashed back in 1990 then regurgitated back up like a Satanic hairball in 2012. Available on vinyl with an ace sleeve by artist Ed Repka.

Individual Thought Patterns

You can’t cheat death, but you can reissue it - as Relapse have seen fit to do. DEATH’s fifth release, first unleashed in 1993, is clearly landmark death metal. By today’s standards, the album contains both rather tame and dated (rockin’ hair metal solos, actually intelligible vocals) and legitimately challenging elements (multiple sections and tempo switches, overall unbridled ferocity, etc.). Gene Hoglan’s drumming could rattle the bones of the Grim Reaper itself.
