5 stars If you're a death metal fan and don't have this one, your collection ain't worth nothing!

One of the most essential death metal albums of all time, and on top of that, incredibly quintessential. It features all the classic Death Metal trademarks and utilizes them in the best way possible.

With no weak tracks, Symbolic finds Death at its peak (a peak that would stay in their last album, The Sound Of Perseverance, as well) of Death Metal creativity and inventive: It Pioneers Progressive Death Metal!

Featuring very technical instrumentation and time signature changes, Symbolic follows the steps of its predecessors, Human and Individual Thought Patterns, which both approached Technical (and progressive) Death Metal in a truly amazing way, and goes one step further.

I seriously could not imagine myself (or any Death Metal fan) not having this album. Truly essential. Fives stars without even thinking twice.
