Death ~ Sound Of Perserverence
Top Customer Reviews
Chuck's voice on this album has a greater sense of clarity about it and what I think is a good piece of production is the fact that all the instruments are given equal status. All of the DEATH albums have their own character, this one is no different and I was happy to pay the extra for an import. Still aggressive with fantastic harmonies. Chuck may have passed on but the music that he passed on to people like me will be his epitaph, hopefully there will be some sort of tribute album. the track 'to forgive is to suffer ' is a metal masterpeice. Excellent.
A brilliant albumn by an exceptional band, if you thought they were going to sell out you were wrong. BUY THIS NOW.
This really is death metal at its finest: completely encapsulating everything the band had worked towards throughout the 1990s; starting with the ground-breaking Human in 1991, the band gradually grew more and more technical and more progressive with each release.
The sheer level of technical precision amongst the musicians here is unlike few things heard in music. The guitar duo of Chuck Schuldiner and Shannon Hamm shine through each song, churning out an endless parade of riffs and ear-splitting solos - notably on tracks such as 'Spirit Crusher', 'Story to Tell' and the epic 'The Flesh and the Power it Holds'. The latter of which features one of Schuldiner's finest solos, whilst the rhythm section of Richard Christy and Scott Clendenin are also worthy of equal praise. Christy's drumming thunders through each track with a level of precision and skill that only the most veteran drummers could hope to reach, whilst Clendenin's bass provides a vital backbone to the overpowering guitars with the occasional stand out moments.
If there could be any criticism of this album, it would be that it is possibly the most difficult of Death's discography to digest due to the progressive nature of it and the fact that it is considerably longer than previous releases. However, this is extremely minor criticism. If you're a Death fan, you'll love it. If you're a death metal fan, you'll love it. If you're a fan of metal in general, you'll probably love it too.
I would recommend this album to anyone.
