Review: Leprosy

It has been quiet around the Death camp (now a quartet), for a long time but the "ultimate death metal" band returns impressively with "Leprosy".

Eight 1A class shells of thrash that, thanks to the ultra heavy, but crystal clear production of Dan Johnson, will add additional pressure to the competition, and establish the band once and for all.

With "Leprosy" Death delivered a thrash mile-stone and everybody who was somewhat disappointed about the last Slayer album, will have a hell of a lot to enjoy with this album.

Whether or not you like the brutal riffs from Rick Rozz and Chuck Schuldiner (who has quite an inhuman throat at his disposal) or the mercilessly pounding rhythm section, the following must be said about the band: they don't care about any trends, they stay true to their music and they have developed a completely unique and characteristic style.
