Death (band)

Here's some imformation from wikipedia:

"Death was an influential American death metal band founded in 1983 and dissolved in 1999. Chuck Schuldiner, guitar/vocals, is widely credited as one of the pioneers of the death metal genre. The band's debut Scream Bloody Gore is considered a genre template. Schuldiner was the only member to remain in the band from start to end."

One of the best bands ever. Chuck Schuldiner was genius songwriter and godfather on death metal. Their debut Scream Bloody Gore created a blueprint for a whole new metal genre.

Albums:

Scream Bloody Gore (1987)
Leprosy (1988)
Spiritual Healing (1990)
Human (1991)
Individual Thought Patterns (1993)
Symbolic (1995)
The Sound Of Perseverance (1998)

RE: Death (band)

They are actually pretty cool and I don't usually like Death Metal. Didn't really like there first few albums though as Chuck was still very much a novice guitarist but he REALLY improved and pushed the band into interesting new territories later. My favourites are "Flesh And The Power It Holds" and "Story To Tell".
Oh yeah thought I might add they aren't the cliche kind of extreme metal band (tremolo picked riffs, blast beats and cookie monster vocals). They have mellow sections, guitar solos that are actually melodic as opposed to atonal (although they do these when needed too!), catchy riffs ala more conventional metal and an overall progressive approach to composition.

Yeah I would say they were an influence on Children of Bodom etc. And I don't mind blast beats either it's just boring when the drummer does it the whole way (or most or the way) through the song. In fact all those things I mentioned have there place but some bands rely on them too much.
