Death had me with three albums: ‘Symbolic’, ‘Individual
Thought Patterns’ and definitely ‘Human’.
Death’s dictator and worldwide musical genius Chuck Schuldiner
passed away on the 13th of December 2001 and now even more I
see the magic which the Florida based band once released. On
songs like ‘Flattening Of Emotions’, ‘Suicide
Machine’ and ‘Lack Of Comprehension’ Schuldiner
leaves the past behind and accesses a new world of death metal,
based on technical skills and catchy rhythms. Assisted by world
class musicians like Paul Masvidal on guitars (Cynic), Steve
DeGorgio on bass (Testament) and Sean Reinert on drums (also
Cynic) there isn't a single note out of tune or misplaced! I
think ‘Human’ is Scott Burns (from the Morrisound
Studios) heaviest effort ever!
Still now, more than ten years after, this album haven’t
lost anything of its ultra heavy sound. Many bands would envy
the music, the song writing and the overall sound on ‘Human’.
And I can’t say they are wrong.
