2 stars As with the debut, Leprosy continues to pioneer death metal with its fast, short, and brutal stabs at music. This is where Chuck begins his revolving door method of running Death. The songs here are all infused with campy gore that belies the insight and intelligence in Chuck's later albums. Pull the Plug, Left to Die, and the title track are enjoyable numbers, but to call them prog would open up the archives to the likes of Motorhead and the Dead Kennedys. This album is extremely important to the formation of a genre, but it's not a good as its predecessor and Chuck still has a lot of kinks to work out, though his fretwork is already amazing.

Fans of Chuck should own everthing by him, but proggies should stick to the albums from Human forward as well as the Control Denied album.

Grade: D-
