5 stars This was the album that did it for me, the one that got me into death metal, and what a fantastic release it is too, this sadly being Death's last album its more prog than you could ever imagine them getting, with some fantastic new additions as well including the powerfull Richard Christy on drums and Shannon Hamm on guitar. Now overall the album sounds clearer than the rest of their albums with a lot more going on and more focus going into the instrumentation with, yes there are some keyboards on this album as well on songs like BITE THE PAIN and i think i could hear a few wee notes on the bands single from the album SPIRIT CRUSHER its not much but its still there in the mix. Musicmanship what can i say? Richard Christy is thee man, just the intro of opening track SCAVENGER OF HUMAN SORROW is enough to prove my point beyond itself and the godly fills on songs such as STORY TO TELL, FLESH AND THE POWER IT HOLDS and the unreal cover of Judas Priest's PAINKILLER is just to die for, there is also the use of instrumentals on this release as well with the track VOICE OF THE SOUL being a nice change of pace from the rest of the album;

Scavenger of Human Sorrow ? 10/10 Bite the Pain ? 1010 Spirit Crusher ? 10/10 Story to Tell ? 10/10 Flesh and the Power It Holds ? 10/10 Voice of the Soul ? 10/10 To Forgive Is to Suffer ? 10/10 A Moment Of Clarity - 10/10 Painkiller - 10/10

My Conclusion? another perfect 10 album, its just one of those albums that i can listen to again and again without getting sick of, a classic if ever there was one.
