Death- 'Lack Of Comprehension'


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Bloody Gore!!! May 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love old Death....It's so very brutal!!
Scream Bloody Gore has to be Death at it's rawest, and most brutal sounding time ever. Although I have to say "Leprosy" is my favorite Death Cd, this was the begining of it all. Chuck was way ahead of his time when he put this gem together back in 1987.
The only reason I like "Leprosy" more, is because it's a little more mature, and polished. Not much, just enough. Scream Bloody Gore is about as raw as you can get.....
Chuck, and Death became major influences after this was heard. It started a whole new wave of Death Metal in the Tampa Bay, and S. Florida area.....Nasty Savage may have been the first influence down here, but Death was there in the begining as well.
What I love about this Cd compared to recent Death releases, is that it's very raw. You feel like your right there in the studio. The crunch is awesome, and Chuck has a great voice for this kind of music....His lyrics are genius. Chuck was born to play Death Metal.
Death is still going strong today, and although the old sound of the past has somewhat disappeared in my opinion, the important thing to remember is that Death hasn't sold out!!!.......
Scream Bloody Gore, and Leprosy are my favorite Death Cd's.
If you have yet to hear this, and you consider yourself a Death Metal fan, your wrong!!!......You must first hear this to become worthy.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the original death metal albums April 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'd heard a lot about Death, both before and after Chuck Schuldiner's tragic passing to cancer in 2001. Considering that near constant line-up changes had given Death near one-man band status and considering that Schuldiner played all but the drums on this album, I'd always intended to buy some albums by the band. For some reason, it has taken me until now to purchase one, but it has to be said that has been worth the wait.
To the inexperienced death metal fan who has only heard more recent albums, Scream Bloody Gore may come across as crude and cliched. But even then it is still an incredible release. However, when taking into consideration that this was a debut, that it was the sole creation of one man and that it was one of the genre's first albums, it makes it all the more impressive.
The lyrics are completely gore-soaked, the songs are vicious yet much more than merely noise, some of the riffs are surprisingly melodic and the soloing is very sturdy. One thing that comes across on this album that I feel is missing from almost all more recent death metal (in fact, arguably all proper death metal from the past 10 years or so) is the sense of energy that in my mind has been missing in a lot of heavy music for a long time. This is a band who are just completely excited by what they are doing instead of cooly calculating how to get the thickest guitar tone or the fastest blast beat, and to me it makes the whole listening experience far more intense.
I would have to say that if you are into heavy music then definately get this album. There may be those that are faster, heavier or more technical (indeed, by this band themselves if not others) but that doesn't matter. The pure energy pouring off this album makes it all worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It all starts here, deathsters... October 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Chuck Schuldiner will be remembered as one of the most innovative and truly talented performers in all of extreme metal. It's a bit of a shame though, that in the latter part of his all-too-short life, he had pretty much disowned some of his earlier accomplishments, one of which was Death's cult-classic debut album, 'Scream Bloody Gore'. Because while it may not be as technically accomplished or as brainiac as, say, 'Symbolic', this album pretty much launched a whole new metal subculture and still stands as a definitive example of the term "death metal".
While the OTT cheese factor is painfully apparent in the lyrics and song titles (see "Regurgitated Guts" for an earlier example of the roots from which Cannibal Corpse would later create musical snuff-porn), it's hard not to notice Chuck's abilities as a guitarist and songwriter, and the result is a truly entertaining slab of B-movie metal that still stands on it's own today. Fact is, Chuck pretty much invented death metal, combining blood-and-gore lyrics, doom-laden E-minor riffs delivered at (at the time) insane holocaustical speeds, and, of course, the now-famous "cookie monster" blowtorch vocals which every death metal vocalist in the world would emulate to this day.
Still a favorite guilty pleasure, 'S.B.G.' remains one of the most important albums in all of extreme metal. Chuck would go on to much more musical and intellectually superior things before his tragic demise from cancer, but this album's fun factor simply can't be denied...a totally essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential prototypical death metal - an original... April 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This album invented at a take an entire genre. Chuck and crew (including Chris R. later of Autopsy fame) weld together Possessed and Slayer-influenced riffs with demonic low-pitched screams (something new at the time!) to form an entirely original juggernaut: Death Metal. The guitar playing is simple but utterly inspired. The melodies are absolutely perfect in their dark malevolence - no filler notes, no extraneous material, no wasted emotion. It goes straight for your throat and bludgeons you with expert technical finesse - the music must be experienced (preferably at top volume!) to be believed. There is a strain of poisonous intensity running through these songs that makes them transcend the attempts of bands that followed this essential, groundbreaking, beautifully evil album. A must buy.
