MetalKult.com has just posted six MP3 audio files from a 1988 Death rehearsal.

In January 1988, the members of Death convened in Orlando, Florida, to rehearse six of the songs that would eventually wind up on the band's second and highly influential album, "Leprosy".

The tracks captured during that rehearsal are as follows:

01. Left To Die
02. Open Casket
03. Pull The Plug
04. Choke On It
05. Born Dead
06. Forgotten Past

The Death lineup at the time included guitarist/vocalist Chuck Schuldiner, guitarist Rick Rozz, bassist Terry Butler and drummer Bill Andrews.

Go to MetalKult.com to download these mp3s.

In other news, according to Blabbermouth.net, Death's classic 1995 album "Symbolic" will be reissued in March 2008 via Roadrunner Records. The remastered LP will include the original album tracks plus several previously unreleased, ultra-rare, mostly instrumental demo recordings that were completed in early 1994 with the lineup of Chuck Schuldiner (guitar), Gene Hoglan (drums) and Steve DiGiorgio (bass). The package will also come with brand new liner notes written by longtime metal journalist Don Kaye.

"Symbolic" has sold just under 50,000 copies in the United States in the 12 years since its release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Leprosy has always been my favourite of Death. Haha, but I haven't fucking heard Symbolic yet (don't kill me) so I may wait for the reissue now instead.

Good news, but why symbolic?, I think TSoP would be more emblematic,

That makes two of us. Well, actually I've heard the title track, but I still haven't gotten the album. Leprosy is for me the second best album of Death, Human still kicks my ass numb.
