Death - Human LP (Re-issue) (2021)
DEATH (USA) - Human (2021 Relapse Re-issue on Translucent Gold with Bone White and Aqua Blue, Red & Brown Splatter - limited to 8,090 copies. Human is the fourth studio album by American Death Metal powerhouse DEATH, originally released on October 22nd, 1991, by Relativity Records. The album marked the beginning of a major stylistic change for DEATH, being more technically complex and progressive than the band's previous efforts.
The lyrics are more introspective when compared to the gore-based lyrics of Scream Bloody Gore and Leprosy or the social commentary on Spiritual Healing. This new style would continue to evolve on all following DEATH albums. This is the only album to feature guitarist Paul Masvidal, drummer Sean Reinert and the first to feature lengendary bassist Steve DiGiorgio.
If you consider yourself a DEATH fan and are lacking this album in your collection, you’re missing out on a plethora of tracks that will blow your mind. The music is the highlight of the release and no other Death Metal album can compete with this one. The music, solos, vocals, drums and lyrics all fit together to make one hell of a monumental Death Metal release that can never be duplicated. Chuck was an amazing musician who died too young. His music will live on as a legacy in the Death Metal world. We all hope that he is at peace now and onto the next life Rest in Power, Charles Michael Schuldiner (May 13th, 1967 - Dec 13th, 2001) Relapse Records – RR44831, Relapse Records – LP4483R, Relapse Records – RR7165
