Jacob Ballance This is a masterpiece of a record. Hands down my favorite Death album, the production is just so thick, and everything meshes together perfectly in my opinion. I can easily credit this record as the one that made me realize just how integral drumming is to metal music as a whole, Sean Reinert was not of this earth. As a guitar player, these riffs and leads that Chuck and Paul created are just absolutely bonkers to say the least, and above all just incredibly inspiring 10/10. Favorite track: Secret Face.

blurppp Human is what progressive death metal is supposed to sound like. It's an absolute masterpeice and it is
revolutionary when it comes to death metal! Favorite track: Lack Of Comprehension.

Brandon Handy Incredible album, definitely the best of Death's pre-prog era, not to mention being a transition to it (along with Spiritual Healing). I received this code with the vinyl version. It didn't have these bonus tracks, aside from the unfortunate God of Thunder cover which drags it down slightly.

It's hard to recommend the numerous bonus tracks to anyone aside from the most hardcore Death fans who want a glimpse into the studio, however I can respect that and it's cool that they were included. Favorite track: Flattening Of Emotions.

Where is the person that could have been Who, what took over, when did the end begin Should we not prepare for the uncertain Mysteries of our life, of our destiny See things that are not there Intruding voices What went wrong to their picture perfect life They once knew - Flattening of emotions A mind shared by an uninvited stranger Which comes and goes as choose to appear Should we not prepare for the uncertain Mysteries of our life, of our destiny See things that are not there Intruding voices What went wrong to their picture perfect life They once knew - Flattening of emotions

Controlling their lives Deciding when and how they will die A victim of someone else's choice The ones who suffer have no voice Manipulating destiny When it comes to living, no one seems to care But when it comes to wanting out Those with power, will be there Prolong the pain How long will it last? Suicide machine A request to die with dignity Is that too much to ask? Suicide machine How easy it is to deny the pain Of someone else's suffering Robbed of natural abilities In death they now seek tranquility In a confused state of mind Extending agony, they must be blind Manipulating destiny When it comes to living, no one seems to care But when it comes to wanting out Those with power, will be there Prolong the pain How long will it last? Suicide machine A request to die with dignity Is that too much to ask? Suicide machine

Labelled a creation of evil Ridiculed for their shocking appearance Sharing both pleasure and pain Two minds, two hearts, one soul Separating mentally An illusion of privacy Together - they absorb each other's lives As One - they will live and they will die A living hell has begun Displayed as a nightmare Criticized through words and eyes As they stare To the normal it seems grotesque Connected by a bond of flesh Sharing both pleasure and pain Two minds, two hearts, one soul Separating mentally An illusion of privacy Together - they absorb each other's lives As One - they will live and they will die A living hell has begun

Secret Face 04:39
There is a mask That covers up one's true intentions Once removed, things become very clear Analyze behavior patterns to see beneath The person that is presented to you Vulnerable through trust Life is a twisted maze of obstacles Presented by people with a secret face What's on the outside Is not always all that is real Live by caution, what I feel When things are reversed People are shown for what they are The truth is revealed Banish the false Pacifying moments with an acquired disguise to obtain The things they want By the anguish of someone else Materialistic motives are fulfilled Cherish the true Vulnerable through trust Life is a twisted maze of obstacles Presented by people with a secret face
5.
A condemning fear strikes down Things they cannot understand An excuse to cover up weaknesses that lie within Lies Laying your guilt and pain On people that had no part in the molding of a life That creates its destruction Lies Right before your very eyes A reflection of the mistakes To the end you will deny Your part in the demise of a life Lack of comprehension Thriving on your cliché Compelled by self-resentment Reaching into the minds of those that created The depression in which they In which they drowned their flesh and blood Lies So easy to blame the Everlasting guilt on a pathetic attempt To justify the ending of a life Lies Right before your very eyes A reflection of the mistakes To the end you will deny Your help in the ending of a life Lack of comprehension Thriving on your cliché Compelled by self-resentment
6.
Born into darkness Where sounds portray the images that are out Out of reach from my sight Which has been denied Hands change into my eyes Body senses intensified Sight so close yet far away In dreams my thoughts take their form To give memories identity Through dreams I obtain The ability to connect sight with sound Close your eyes and imagine to be without What we take for granted every time we open our eyes A permanent shadow to never step away Feel the dark in the cold Feel the warmth of the light Which has been denied Hands change into my eyes Body senses intensified Sight so close yet far away In dreams my thoughts take their form To give memories identity Through dreams I obtain The ability to connect sight with sound

Cosmic Sea 04:27

Mysterious object of flight on a voyage To correct what they have done, what we are doing Perhaps submerged, living in the inner most Recesses of the planet - no choice but To adapt to an underground world Limiting our passages of thought Are they the examples of regression A life form's abusive progression In a realm so vast, we sit among the Vacant Planets So many worlds yet to be seen that once have shared The same effects that come from greed, mass production Perhaps submerged, living in the inner most Recesses of the planet - no choice but To adapt to an underground world Limiting our passages of thought Are they the examples of regression A life form's abusive progression

about

DEATH, the heavy metal institution founded, realized, and helmed by legendary guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, released its legendary fourth studio album Human (’91) to massive worldwide critical acclaim. The album’s complex and progressive music and introspective lyrics marked a massive stylistic change away from the more primitive early material for the group, and Human went on to become one of the most influential metal records in the history of the genre.
Now remixed under the watchful eye of longtime DEATH producer Jim Morris, Human 2011 represents the fully-realized version of this epic album. Now remixed, remastered, repackaged and featuring over an hour of newly unearthed and previously unreleased early demo tracks, Human 2011 is the definitive edition of this true metal classic.
