Death- 'Lack Of Comprehension'

Biography

Unquestionably one of the most important and influential death metal acts to have ever emerged from the North American continent, Florida's DEATH came together in late 1983 when guitarist/vocalist Chuck Schuldiner and guitarist Rick Rozz (real name: Frederick DeLillo) got together with drummer/vocalist Barney "Kam" Lee to form Mantas. Drawing musical inspiration from Venom and ... Read more in Amazon's Death Store

This album is a collection of the greatest songs by Death.
Larry Pescatore
Overall, these early compositions are superior in many ways to those of early Morbid Angel, although both bands would become very progressive and melodic later on.

...other than that it contains some of Death's classic material. You really have to get their first four albums though in order to get all of their best material. What I really want to say is that many people don't realize that the genre was named after the band, not the other way around. Death are truly one of originators. What really sets Death apart from, say, Morbid Angel, is their lyrics. This stuff is very controversial and shockingly intelligent for a metal band, although Metallica should be given credit for their social commentary as well. It's clear that Schuldiner does not want his words to fall upon deaf ears. Perhaps that's why he sings with a style that is surprisingly easy to decipher. The only way that early Morbid Angel keeps up with early Death is that it surpasses it in atmosphere. Overall, these early compositions are superior in many ways to those of early Morbid Angel, although both bands would become very progressive and melodic later on. It's interesting how Schuldiner can repeat a phrase like "torn to pieces" over and over again, and yet it sounds like so much more. This is definitely worth having if you want your death metal collection to be even remotely respectable...

...along with Obituary's "Cause of Death," and I would highly recommend both! FYI, if you didn't already know, James Murphy, who played lead/rhythm guitars on Death's third release, "Spiritual Healing" ("Altering the Future" and the title track are featured on this CD), also previously played on Obituary's "Cause of Death," his only appearance with each respective band. I actually listened to songs off of both CDs for the first time on the same day. It was just before leaving to go to a Dio concert, and by the time I got to the concert, I wanted to listen to music that was a little "heftier" than Ronnie James Dio! Anyway, I was always a traditional metalhead: I graduated from high school in the mid-80's and listened to the hard rock/heavy metal of the times (Sabbath, Maiden, Testament, Slayer, etc.), although I tried to expand my metal listening tastes as time went on. I never actually liked what I perceived to be "death metal," which, to me, seemed like some guy barking and growling indecipherable "vocals" into a microphone; I had always prefered the "guitar virtuoso" metal and the like. On the other hand, perhaps through my own anger and frustation at some aspects of my life at the time, I wanted to experience harder, heavier, more driving music than what traditional metal provided. My eyes were opened when I first heard Death's horror movie influenced "Zombie Ritual," the first song on "Fate" and arguably Death's best song of all time. I had to have more!Read more ›

This album is a collection of the greatest songs by Death. Often imitated but never equalled. It starts out with what I believe their best song "Zombie Ritual" and ends with the classic "Pull the Plug", and in between there is not one bad song. One best of that is truly the best of one of the best. And I saw them live a couple times, and Chuck actually sings while he's playing his leads! Get this album if you're into this genre.
