Album Review

Death's Vivus! is a double-disc set of live performances that pairs Live at Eindhoven 1998 and Live in L.A.: Death & Raw. These are soundboard recordings from the iconic death metal group's 1998 tour in support of The Sound of Perseverance. They were originally never intended for distribution, but in 2001, Nuclear Blast released the albums as a way to raise money for vocalist Chuck Schuldiner's fight against cancer. Because they are essentially bootlegs, the fidelity is mediocre and the track list doesn't differ much from one set to the next, but the performances are commendable and the band's last lineup is heavy as hell, making it a worthwhile two-fer for fans who want to dig past the discography.

Now widely recognized as the father of death metal (if a single candidate must be chosen, his résumé is about as good as it gets), Schuldiner's singular drive and ruthless creative vision guaranteed that Death would ever represent the cutting edge of the style's development. Indeed, while the savagely raw aggression contained...
