10.15.17 In Memory Of Chuck Schuldiner (1967-200

In Memory Of Chuck Schuldiner (1967-2001)

Chuck Schuldiner more than just invented death metal. He was a gifted songwriter, expert guitarist and musical innovator, always pushing the boundaries and challenging himself with each subsequent recording, redefining the very notion of musical progression. Countless bands are indebted to Schuldiner and his work. With that said, I’d like to rank all of his albums based on my personal enjoyment. This is my first list, so don’t be too harsh!
1Death
Symbolic


The perfect blend of accessibility, technicality and raw power. Schuldiner’s finest hour.
2Death
Human


A tight, calculated and flawless work of art.
3Death
Spiritual Healing


A critically overlooked gem that serves as a textbook for classic death metal (and a foreshadowing of what Schuldiner would later accomplish).
4Death
Vivus!


The only available live recording from Schuldiner, featuring material from his final tour with Death. Holy shit, this release. It’s everything you want from a live Death album; raw and punishing.
5Death
The Sound of Perseverance


Death’s swan-song might be more impressive as a Prog metal album than a death metal album, but The Sound Of Perseverance reaffirms Chuck Schuldiner’s gift for ambitious, imaginative metal.
6Death
Individual Thought Patterns


Even with a tepid production job, this album still manages to deliver the goods. It’s melodic, aggressive and incredible.
7Death
Leprosy


Despite being only their second album, Leprosy clearly shows that Death has matured greatly since their debut. It’s a more structured, well-paced slab of punishing death metal.
8Death
Scream Bloody Gore


The one that started it all, and the one that began a legacy. If you can get past the low-budget production and a lack of structure, you’ll be in for a real treat.
9Control Denied
The Fragile Art of Existence


While it is a good album, The Fragile Art Of Existence has a few elements that don’t exactly fit. For example, the leads aren’t as memorable as those on the Death albums, and there are some tonal issues. That aside, this is an enjoyable and interesting release.
