Prog Reviewer
2 stars Scream Bloody Gore is an album that almost single-handedly defined a genre. While Death may have been beaten to the death metal punch by Possessed, home to future Primus guitarist Larry LaLonde, Schuldiner's outfit has had much more of an impact on the sub- genre. The debut finds Chuck assisted only by drummer Chris Reinert. The songs are about the farthest thing you can get from prog, they are raw blasts of noise dealing with B-movie gore and creatures. This album is quite addictive, and fans of death metal must own this album. However, die-hard proggies will likely use this album as well as the Sex Pistols' Never Mind the Bollocks to start a campfire.

Bottom line, from a prog standpoint, this gets two stars. From a metal standpoint, this is a classic that fans of Opeth and Meshuggah should easily fall in love with.

Grade: D+
