  • Along with Metallica’s “Kill ‘Em All” and Slayer’s “Reign In Blood,” this is the most pure form of metal ever. This is metal the way it was meant to be played, and many bands wouldn’t be around today were it not for Death. “Leprosy” is an ultra-…, in your face, drive you through the ground sludgefest. Songs like “Born Dead” and “Primitive Ways” just bludgeon you with their raw brutality. Chuck Schuldiner and Rick Rozz are a great guitar duo. The solos are a definite plus and nothing short of impressive, but they are overshadowed by Schuldiner’s brutal riffing and raw vocals. The drumming by Bill Andrews is also great, as there’s plenty of double bass and cool fills to go around. I can’t complain about any of the songs on this CD. They are all amazing, but newbies should immediately check out “Pull The Plug.” Many regard it as one of the best Death songs. As for the rest of the CD, it’s fast, heavy, and brutal with plenty of great guitar solos and riffs to keep you entertained for a long time. So, if you have a penchant for true metal, pick this up. You will not be disappointed.
