Death - Spiritual Healing 1990
8.5
Technical Prog-Related Extreme Metal
"Spiritual Healing" was probably the first really
prog-related effort by Death, and, while it is not a
masterpiece compared to Death's last four albums, it is way
more interesting than many other death metal releases at the
time. Paul Masvidal of Cynic has described this album as being
in a more progressive direction than its predecessors, and,
sure enough, there are plenty of progressive elements, such as
time and tempo changes and complex song structures. There is
also plenty of Schuldiner-style riffage which combines
brutality and speed with melody and catchiness.

Death - Leprosy 1988
8.1
Technical Non-Prog Extreme Metal
While less progressive and more of a straight death metal
album than any of Death's subsequent albums, "Leptrosy" is
nevertheless miles many other death metal releases at the time.
There is plenty of unmistakably Chuck Schuldiner riffage on
this album, and there are a few progressive elements to be
found on this album, such as interesting time and tempo
changes, "Pull the Plug" being the most interesting song on the
album.

Death - Individual Thought Patterns 1993
9.6
Technical Prog Extreme Metal
With Chuck Schuldiner, Andy LaRocque, Gene Hoglan and Steve
DiGiorgio, 'Individual Thought Patterns' stands out as a
shining jewel in the murky muddy stream of the death metal of
the 1990s.

Death - Human 1991
9.6
Technical Prog-Related Extreme Metal
One the best death metal albums of all times, 'Human' was
leagues ahead of most of the standard death metal releases at
the time.

Death - The Sound Of Perseverance 1998
9.5
Technical Prog Metal
Another testimony to the fact that Death were superior to
most of their contemporary death metal colleagues, 'Sound of
Perseverance' is yet another prog death metal masterpiece,
although not as well produced soundwise as 'Symbolic' or
'Individual Thought Patterns'.

Death - Symbolic 1995
10.0
Technical Prog Extreme Metal
Possibly the best death metal release ever with its
interesting progressive-like energetic Schuldiner compositions
bolstered by Hoglan's insane cymbal and hi-hat work.

Excellent progressive metal album. One that I highly recommend, but Symbolic is still their best album.
