Brian3737 Death’s albums are all classics. However, the drum sound and performance on this one puts it over the top as my favorite. I like Gene Hoglan but this is death metal drumming to me. Update: I forgot to mention that this is my favorite death metal album of all time. Most of my top favorite metal albums in general are black metal, but this one is on that list too, of course. Death can’t be topped. Legendary. Favorite track: Born Dead.

Carter Beckwith I just got into Death as of recently, bought the Symbolic album on iTunes and wasn’t really too big on it, Came here and heard this and was blown away, Jesus Christ i swear I was born in the wrong era, all the best Metal albums were in the 80’s, including this album, huge fan of this band now Favorite track: Pull The Plug.

G Opsteegh Mr. Schuldiner always progressed with every album. On Leprosy the band is tighter the songs more structured but the "Death Metal" is not hampered in any way. Sit back, relax and pull the plug. Favorite track: Pull The Plug.

about

The sixth installment in Relapse’s exhaustive reissue campaign of DEATH’S immensely influential catalog is ‘Leprosy’, the band’s titanic second album. Originally released in 1988 ‘Leprosy’ was a pioneering album, building upon the thrash sounds of Metallica and Slayer but adding a previously unheard level of raw extremity. These songs are the roots of an entire genre: death metal. While this was only the second record Death released, it immediately cemented them as heavy metal icons.

Meticulous care has been put into this reissue. The entire album, as well as the bonus material has been painstakingly remastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Nile, etc). Deluxe 2XCD contains 50 minutes of previously unheard and unreleased Leprosy demos and rehearsal material housed in an embossed o-card package with a 24 page booklet featuring unseen pictures of the band as well as brand new liner notes from Ian Christe (Sirius/XM) and Jeremy Wagner (Broken Hope). LP features the remastered core album on wax together with a download card for all of the music included on the 2XCD.
