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.

- Individual Thought Patterns by Death
9/10 gbar Customer review, 20th January 2018
'Individual Thought Patterns' was Death's first true venture into technical death metal. It is fast-paced, intense, and extremely musically complicated. All the guitar riffs are executed with such precision that it's astonishing, plus there are displays of devastatingly fast blast beats and technical drumming. As a result, some of their most iconic tracks features on this album, such as "The Philosopher", "Trapped in a Corner" and "Overactive Imagination". "Mentally Blind" and "Jealousy" highlights the presence of Gene Hoglan, who plays like a human drum machine on this album, but it also highlights the furious, blazing riffs and powerful solos that comes courtesy of Andy LaRocque and Chuck Schuldiner. 'Individual Thought Patterns' was the height of Death's mastery, im my opinion. The arrangements on each of these songs flows seamlessly together, taking the listener on a musically intellectual journey, and it showed that Chuck Schuldiner had once again raised the bar for what death metal should be.
