Ok, so what is everones favourite Death album? In my opinion Human is on top, but only slightly... This is because of the degree of intensity and speed within this album.... It also, IMO contains one of the greatest tracks ever created 'Suicide Machine'

Symbolic and Scream Bloody Gore follow close behind.

Strange that so many people prefer The OSund Of Perseverence. This is the album where Chuck truly sounds like Donald Duck (so like Dani Filth brother), now if he had someone else do the vocals there it would have been a much better album.


LMAO! It looks like it was an unpopular opinion to have...but I don't care. I agree with you, man. To people who got into Death when they were making albums like Scream Bloody Gore and Leprosy, his vocals on The Sound of Perseverance were horrible. Donald Duck! LMAO!

And I'll just say it one more time...Leprosy is and always will be my favorite.

No...I love Death. They're one of my favorite bands...it's just the vocals on the later albums were kind of funny. Like Marcel said, The Sound of Perseverance sounds like Donald Duck is doing the vocals. I just prefer Schuldiner's growls over the Donald Duck phase.

I'll take Symbolic over The Sound of Perseverance any day. Lately, though, I've been listening to Spiritual Healing quite a bit. I forgot how much I like that one too.

we play TSOP just to laugh really hard at Donald's vocals.


Hmm, I guess I don't really know what Donald Duck sounds like, but I quite like his vocals on that album. I actually prefer them to his earlier stuff, I find him a better "shrieker" than the deeper growl stuff on the earlier records. And the musicianship is a lot more complex on the last two records.

In my opinion, Symbolic is probably the best. It sways a lot between Leprosy, Symbolic, and The Sound of Perseverance, but usually comes back to Symbolic. Perfect combination of aggression, catchiness, and more progressive and ambitious songwriting.

Leprosy is just a great death metal record, more straightforward, heavy stuff.

TSOP is right at the edge of being perfectly progressive, and being obnoxiously progressive, with the constant soloing, riff changes, and odd song structures, it is really entertaining sometimes, and a little annothing other times. I don't share Marcel's complaints about the vocals.

It's not, but then Death have never made a bad album... But I definitely think overall, "Spiritual Healing" is one of their weakest albums. Although the title track, "Low Life", and "Altering The Future" are amongst the best songs Chuck ever wrote.

you're right but it's a simple album. Actually, this is a really great transition album between thrash and death

To me, it's like a progressive version of "Leprosy". It has a similar sound to that album, except the songs are not as straightforward, and it was the first album where Chuck started writing more serious lyrics.

This was a tough one for me as i feel that every death album has something on it that sets it apart from other contemporary albums. Went with TSOP because i lean more towards a technical sound, but that's just my opinion. Death made 7 great albums, and that's a fact.

I haven't heard any of their albums in their entirety, but Human is DEFINITELY NOT their best. I only heard Living Monstrosity off Spiritual Healing and I have a feeling it'll be my favorite Death album. However, I'll keep my vote for later.

To me TSOP is only good if you look at the musicianship, The production is sterile and boring and the song writing is completely flat, It just lacks memorability for me, As I said the Musicianship (not just Chucks) is top notch and I can admire that, but looking back now I don't get why I liked it.

I still think it is Leprosy that is their best, To me it has many of Deaths best songs and its basically Scream Bloody Gore improved in every way so to me it represents the bands ground breaking early material at its peak.

TSOP is best if you don't mind the vocals. They don't sound like Donald Duck to me, more like Cobra Commander from the 80's GI Joe series.
Which is a good thing for me.
I'm also putting Leprosy and Human as close competitors. Symbolic is definately their worst.
