5 stars Simply put, this record is to Death Metal what Close To The Edge is to progressive rock. It's an essential record that completely flipped the tables and introduced never-heard ideas to the death metal genre (progressive death metal, in this case).

Chuck Schuldiner has already made revolutionary changes within the genre with 'Human', which introduced and started Death's more progressive era. Symbolic is the culmination of this era, a culmination that would persist even on the next album. The high-pitched growls and insane technique from the musicians combined with Chuck's melodic guitar solos make up for one hell of a treat.

An undisputed classic within death metal. This record was miracle when it was released and it still is. Five Stars, no doubt.
