After Symbolicc, Chuck Schuldiner disbanded Death, out of frustration with the style, particularly with his own vocals. But, as had happened before, he reconvened and delivered a major wallop with what would be Death's final release. The complexity factor is through the roof on The Sound Of Perseverance. Just Richard Christy's opening drum pattern will make your head spin. After that, the riffs come at you from all points of the compass, each song having many facets, but always interesting. It might even be a little too over-the-top, hard to wrap your head around it all at once. The other big difference is Chuck's vocals, this time opting for a grating, high-pitched screech, kind of a mix of David Wayne of Metal Church, and some nutcase black-metal guy. But, like the previous three releases it's important and essential, and also includes a ripping, note-perfect cover of Priest's "Painkiller."

I've never been a Death fan at all but i must admit that this album is a mind blower!!!...tracks 1,2,5,7,8 & the mega Judas Priest cover of the classic "Painkiller" are simply outstanding cuts...recommended...87/100
