This is how metal is supposed to be played,

It's a tragedy that Chuck Shuldiner passed away, but at least we are left with this masterpiece!
Metal bands today do not compare to this brilliance. Its actual metal. None of that metalcore rubbish that pollutes the music industry today, its actual metal.
Chuck Shuldiner was a brilliant guitarist and it shows on this album. His solos are tasteful and not just mindless shred-outs. He is accompanied by an excellent and extremely talented band which makes this album the masterpiece it is. Every track is great and each one contains some classic riffage. The end of Perennial quest is almost hair raising and is a poignant ending to the album.
