I’m sure it’s no big surprise that I, an admitted death metalhead, would decide to review this one for my classic submission. I picked this up about a year ago as part of my never-ending quest to obtain long time favorites in CD format. When I laid eyes on this one on a table at the Milwaukee Metalfest, my hand went directly to my pocket.

It had been so long since I’d listened to my beat up cassette, it was like hearing it for the first time. What a treat. By my standards today, I would hail this as an amazing release. Consider that this came out a dozen years ago, and you start to get the picture. We all know we owe Lord Chuck an inestimable debt for delivering the mayhem that is Death to our ears. I decided it was about damn time somebody officially gave this band the hallowed "classic" status that it deserves.

ou may ask, why did I pick this album when the others are so great, too? Perhaps it’s because I got it so recently, and I’m still high on it – fresh in my mind and all that. Or maybe it’s because it’s damn good. Or possibly because they’re all so damn good, I just had to start somewhere! Frankly, I think they’re all fantastic albums, and each deserves a review. Until the next time then, listen to this one and join me in wishing Chuck a continued speedy and full recovery.
