    Leprosy, Death's second album, shows some pretty strong growth from their debut already. It's still just old-school Death Metal, but Chuck has a better voice and more interesting work than most, and the songwriting is a step ahead of the competition. All in all an excellent album. The biggest weakness of Rozz work. It tends to be a little ridiculous on the page, especially a series of Trem bar squeaks and trills distasteful. It is not too much of a problem because they tend to be short, and frankly a little amusing, even if they are not just from a music enojoyable view. Chuck's is acting for its deficiency, however. He is nowhere near as proficient as he is, but he is still showing it, why is my favorite lead guitarist. He always has just the right combination of melody and speed, never too melodic for the musical background, but never boring zooming in squeak, like many lead guitarists DM. This has some excellent DM production. Still pretty raw, but just enough, and it is still very bulky and thick sounds. (For example, in contrast to many albums) The drum sound is perhaps a bit over the top (I can not imagine a snare drum sound like that in the real world), but it still works very well what the album a very large rhythmic beat. You can even hear the bass a bit of time, although it usually does not do what is of particular interest. Each track here is good. You do not have much choice, but most of them have a beautiful reminder choir, so they do not just blur together. The riffwork is very nice with a good combination Chunky, with thrashier blazing riffs, Death Metal riffs Trem. (This can be boring if they exaggerated, they are not here) It is usually very fast, if it thrash-style drumming with sticks instead of blast beats. Chuck plus what is probably his best vocal performance ever. Very intense with the ever over the top. The title track gives you a good sense of what will come with lightning riffs and a rather wild (if simple) drum attack, while still managing to an unforgettable pre-chorus and chorus. The next two tracks are very good, but the left is the true next state, and probably the second best track on the album. The chorus is fantastic, and it has a great mid-break, what is the best Chuck solo on the album. Next comes the very famous Pull the plug, and I must say that I think this song deserves it's reputation. I dare say that it is perhaps the best, most beautiful choir ever in a metal song. (Surely one of the best thrash or death metal) The song is brilliantly written in its simplicity. The transition from slow verses to the chorus before sprinting to the absolutely crushing mosh-riff of choral works beautifully, all topped off with another cool school diner lead. Simply a fantastic song. Open Casket is next and is another good one. It is a bit more progressive and unpredictable than most other tracks, and Chuck gives an eerie vocals especially performance. (Listening, when he sings, touch the Fleah, it's so cold.) This is partly explained by the following spring Rozz Primitive possibilities that are easy and simple uncomplicated track on the album. It is perhaps the weakest song on the album, and it's still pretty cool. Choke He remembers another progressive piece. A little slower and less severe in total with a large choir. All in all, this is another classic of the death. Buy It Now.

    This is a great metal album. Chuck Shuldiner was a musical genius. If you like speed or thrash metal and you are looking for in the death metal, buy this album immediately. It happened to me. Anyway, this album is heavy and big. The riffs are similar to Slayer times, only harder. The riffs are great. The solos are awesome, and they are in every song. The vocals on this album are great, Chuck is still my favorite death metal singer. He is much better than the guys from Cannibal Corpse and other death metal band. My favorite songs would be “Leprosy,” “Pull the plug,” “Primitive Ways” and “Choke On It”, but they are all big, and there is no filler. Basically, if you are into thrash / death metal, there is no way you can go wrong with this album. It was sad to hear about Chuck's death, and although I only recently discovered, death, I will miss him. R.I.P. Chuck

    A huge leap forward.
    I would say the leap from Scream to Leprosy was comparable to the jump Slayer made from Show to Hell.
    Better songwriting.
    Better lyrics.

    Death’s first step
    this was Deaths 2nd cd and was leaps and bounds better than their debut. Solid production and awesome songs. The great Chuck S.

    Along with Metallica's “Kill 'Em All” and Slayer's “Reign in Blood”, which is the pure form of metal ever. This is made of metal, as it was to play, and many bands of today would not, they were not on death. “Leprosy” is an ultra-…, in your face, go through the ground sludgefest. Songs like “Born Dead” and “Primitive Ways” only club you with their raw brutality. Chuck Schuldiner and Rick Rozz are a great guitar duo. The solos are a plus, and nothing less than impressive, but they are overshadowed by the brutal school dinner riffs and raw vocals. The drums of Bill Andrews is also great because a lot of cool fills and bass to circumvent. I can not complain about any of the songs on this CD. They are all fantastic, but newcomers should immediately check out “Pull the plug.” Many see it as one of the best Death songs. As for the rest of the CD, it is quick, strong, brutal and with many great guitar solos and riffs, keeping you entertained for a long time. So, if you have a real fondness for metal, pick this up. You will not be disappointed.

    Why don’t you – PULL THE PLUG!!!
    Leprosy…ahh… raw and brutal and the defintion of what a death metal.
    Pull the Plug has got to be one of the tightest death metal songs written and there are…

    Absolutely Brilliant
    For this merely being Death’s second album, it is amazing the extent of maturity they have gone through from Scream Bloody Gore.

    Excellent follow up
    The second installment of Chuck Schuldiner’s group DEATH entitled LEPROSY is nothing short of amazing.

    Excellent early-days metal band
    Death is one of those bands who fell through the cracks to some degree and never really received the full respect and recognition they truly deserve.

    It has it`s moments.
    This is probably my least favorite Death album. Needless to say, Death is kick ass; always have been and always will be, but this album just felt awkward to me.
