Prog Reviewer
1 stars I could not disagree with the two reviews listed above. Death's debut album is everything a Prog fan fears. The "lock-up" technique, the guttural screams, ranging guitars and loud bass define this album very much. Think the typical Death Metal album, but not as brutal as your Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Suffocation. This was actually where Death Metal originated from, so this should be the ultimate Death Metaller's wet dream, except this site is not called Death Metal Archives, but rather Progarchives, so I am going to look at it from the Progressive side of music.

1. Death- What a name! NOT PROG

2. The lack of variation - Typical Death Metal, makes Neal Morse's lyrics look more variant.

3. The awful vocals- How can Progressive music be this terrible? Chuck Schuldiner's voice is no Mikael Akerfeldt and does not have the dynamics of his guttural growls. It is misused and not used properly.

4. The LAME crunching guitar rhythmns- Awful, does not try to apply melody to anything.

5. Again, I repeat, this is Progarchives, not Death Metal archives. If you want to regain your sanity and open your eyes to Melodic Metal. Listen to bands like Blind Guardian, Dream Theater, or even the Melodic Death Metal band, At the Gates.

6. For a Death Metal fan this is must have, but we are not on a Metal site, so I'm bound to give this album an unflattering shake of the head.
