5 stars Chuck Schuldiner, what can one say about this man? He was easily one of the best guitar virtuoso's and song writers in the field of metal, and he was practically the sole innovator of Death metal. His beautiful masterpieces are finally starting to get the recognition they rightfully deserve. Chuck Schuldiner is not a name to overlook, or even second guess, this man is the definitive metal god.

Chuck's band "Control Denied," take Death into another voyage of their magnificent legacy. The Fragile Art of Existence is home to many wonderful songs, such as "What If.....?", "When the Link Becomes Missing," "Believe," and "Consumed." There is not a sub-par song on this album, all are masterpieces in their own right, just like Death's album's and songs. Every song on this album is at the musical apex of metal, just as Death's were, Death were the band that consistently pushed the musical apex of metal, where no other band has been able to reach. Some of the highlights are bass virtuoso Steve Digiorgio's work in "What If.......?" where his bass line harmonizes with Chuck's during Chuck's lead. The exceptional drumming of Richard Christy is not one to miss, and Shannon Hamm soars on virtuosic guitar leads. Chuck always got increasingly better with his work, and it's a shame we didn't see him reach his musical height, but we always have the great memories he has given us.

RIP Chuck Schuldiner
