Chuck Schuldiner gets even darker and bleaker on Leprosy, the follow-up to Death’s long-awaited 1987 debut, Scream Bloody Gore. Schuldiner recorded the album with a completely different Death line-up, but the record isn’t terribly different from its predecessor, aside from a bit more polish in the production and composition. Even the lyrics show some progression, since here Chuck finds the time to put some provocative thoughts about politics and society in general. Leprosy was a pioneering album, building upon the thrash sounds of Metallica and Slayer but adding a previously unheard level of raw extremity. These songs are the roots of an entire genre: death metal. While this was only the second record Death release, it immediately cemented them as heavy metal icons.
