5 stars What a change this album was from Spiritual Healing which was a good album but nothing like this. Chuck had put together the perfect lineup for this album. Sean Reifert ( Drums) and Paul Masvidal ( Guitar) from Cynic and Steve G ( Bas) from Sadus. Death went from being a Death Metal band with trash metal tendencies to a Death Metal band with a much more technical approach.

Honestly if you look at the compositions, they´re not that different from Spiritual Healing. But the musicians just makes this album something special. Sean Reifert has to mentioned as the truly unique drummer he is. He just puts so much power into Death´s music. Both Paul Masvidal and Steve G puts their mark on the album as well with beautiful solos and magnificent basplay.

Many bands followed in the wake of this album, as it inspired many ekstreme metal bands to make their music more technical. For the genre this is a very progressive album, and a succesful one. It is still as good today as it was then. Don´t misunderstand it though, it is not progressive in the sense that their are tons of different riffs and tempo changes, for that you should seek out bands like Cynic, Atheist and Sadist. This is just a classic technical Death Metal album made by one of the best lineups ever in this kind of music.

UMUR | 5/5 |
