    Music was great, but I just could never get into Chuck's vocals. I think maybe because I preferred the more archetypal deeper growls like Blessed/Covenent-era Morbid Angel and Entombed's "Left hand path" which to me is still the greatest death metal album of all time and I've probably listened to like 250 in my life.

    I’m not a huge DM fan, I can tolerate the vocals but don’t love em by any means, he did write great lyrics though. Then again I’m a huge Megadeth fan and Dave writes shit lyrics sometimes and has fairly average vocals so clearly I’m about the music ha ha

    How fucking weird is it to hear Lemmy's voice and the Sympathy for the devil cover by Motorhead in an Acura commercial? It ranks up there with my recent vacation to Daytona, and Come As You Are by Nirvana was playing over the airport speakers. So Motorhead and Nirvana are 'Easy Listening/Elevator music" now???

    This seems to be the case most of the time. I'm usually the odd one out, in that my preference for Death albums is sequential, with SBG and Leprosy neck and neck.
    Human was their big transition towards a more technical approach, largely due to the amazing skinsmanship of Sean Reinert.
    IMO he even eclipses Hoglan and Christie.
    Bottom line though is Chuck and co. never released a weak album, which is rare.

    Venom get a lotta shit, but that level of vitality is missing sorely in a lot of today's metal.

    The outro solo is one of my favorites of all time, that stretch is a bitch to pull off.

    I think it's a damn shame Death get called "death metal", i think it stops a lot of people from listening to them. They are so much more than that, especially lyrically, they ain't all just about the gore stuff. And yeah they always had dudes who could really play their instruments.

    Possessed is fabled to have been the originators of the term.
    Seven Churches is top notch, the next a slight step down.
    I think it's mainly due to the vocal style of both Becerra and Schuldiner.
