3 stars Leprosy is the first Death album I've heard. In fact this is the first death metal album I've heard somewhere in early 90s. I was a bit shocked when I heard the vocals cos I didn't realize someone can sing with such deep and low voice. Yeah, death metal. Comparing Leprosy to previous death release this one is a huge progress. The production is better, songs are better and musicians play better. It doesn't mean this is excellent album cos it's not. To me it's like 4 very good tracks and 4 pretty weak. Highlights of the album are definitelly songs Leprosy, Born Dead, Left To Die and Pull The Plug. First one is pretty complex as for death metal. It contains all typical elements of the style plus some virtuosity. The most exciting part of the album as for me it's Pull The Plug with great calssical metal solos. It's something worth of attention cos the whole album is very brutal. Born Dead is a short piece of authentic metal work. Left To Die will knock you down with brutality but it's yet melodic and pretty cool. The remaining four... well I can go without that. It's just typical death metal with no melodies or even exciting solos. Ok some may say : man it's death metal not pop metal but it doesn't mean there has to be lack of good melodies to sound brutal. So as for me half of the release is pretty weak. But it doesn't change my opinion the album is death metall classic. It's light years ahead of that Possessed albums that sound like heap of trash compared to Death album. Worth of listening.
