3 stars I would like to state from the beginning that i do not consider "Leprosy" a progressive rock album. It is a pure death metal record without any musical extensions which is a natural thing if we take under consideration the fact that is was released in 1988. "Leprosy" is the definition of death metal because it has it all:strong drums, low bass with fast executions, distorted rhythm guitars and technical solos. Lyrically, everything is related to death, sadism, fear, etc. Everything is typical, but interesting is the way Chuck actually anticipates the post-2000 style adopted by most death metal bands which consists of a combination of brutal with technical death metal. After 1990 the genre gains diversity and brutal death metal bands are generally marked by lack of technique, in the context of all other sub genres. "Leprosy" is a obvious combination between the two elements that will become so familiar to acts such as Deicide, Suffocation, Vital Remains, Nile, after 2000. The production is good for those days, far better even than the one albums that were released in the beginning of the 90's received. I cannot recommend this record to many progressive rock fans but it is a wise decision to listen to it if you want to know what death metal has to say.
