Not to be confused with Chuck Schuldiner's equally influential group, Death were a proto-punk band who switched from funk to hard rock after witnessing The Who and Alice Cooper perform. Their music bridged the gap between the garage rock of MC5 and The Stooges and the first essence of proper punk from The Ramones and The Damned. Upon being rediscovered due to singles going online for about $800, Drag City snapped them up and compiled this release. They were also subject to a documentary called 'A Band Called Death'.

This album has a Hollywood story of itself. After seeing the documentary "A Band Called Death", I got obsessed enough to find this homemade masterpiece, and I'm not disappointed. I'm wasn't a big fan of punk music until this band fell into my hands, now I'm starting to gradually go towards other bands and more interested with the movement. I give it a 10 because I didn't have the option to give it a 100. Get it, dig it, and you'll love it.

Belatedly, it turns out to be great: seven precise, insurrectionist ramalams that somehow fit somewhere between MC5's 'High Time' and Dead Boys' 'Sonic Reducer.
Although just 26 minutes long, it's an unexpected triumph.
There’s not a bad song in the bunch, but the songs from Death’s only official release are the clear highlights on ...For the Whole World to See.
