Album Review

Human started to break Death to a wider audience, after Chuck Schuldiner nearly disbanded the group. Schuldiner's playing has improved immensely since Scream Bloody Gore, as have his compositional skills. He writes strange, dissonant, harmonized guitar lines and is one of the few death metal songwriters who changes moods and textures over the course of an album; Human's second half is actually almost subdued by death metal standards. [Relapse also included an expanded edition, which added a second disc with 223 tracks of demos and instrumental versions.]

Customer Reviews

i hate to say it but this is awesome!!

i dont like death metal at all so when i say this it is really something. this is an awesome album, amazing guitar and vocals!!

R.I.P. Chuck


From what I understand this is the album where DEATH began to make thier music more progressive. Following on the heels of the much heavier Leprosy and Spiritual Healing this album is a little bit of a change. Being a death metal band, they still have a level of brutality but this album is also very musical and complex. For me this is when DEATH began to be really good, reaching thier peek on The Sound of Perseverance. The whole album is worth your money but if you just want a few songs get Suicide Machine, Lack of Comprehension, and See through dreams. Oh, and I'm not gonna lie, the KISS cover; well it's pretty freakin' amazing.

A True Masterpiece

A classic album and super influential style only a musical genius such as Chuck Schuldiner (R.I.P) can deliver. Technical guitar riffs, killer drumming, powerful bass - all come into a great harmony. I bought this album 20 years ago when it came out and I never stop listening to it and keep getting goose bumps! One of my favorite 10 Metal Albums!

Over the course of more than a decade and seven increasingly accomplished albums, Chuck Schuldiner, the architect behind the ubiquitous Death, became a bona fide heavy metal icon. 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...
