Death - The Sound of Perseverance

Posted on Sunday, October 17, 2010

I’ll give Chuck credit for coming up with an LP that retains the aggressiveness of the older Death material but shows some progression at the same time. Some of the song structures are kind of strange, but I think this album’s grown on me after a couple listens. I still miss Gene “the human tornado” on the drums, but I guess he’s too busy with Strapping Young Lad to hang with Chuck this time around. The Sound of Perseverance is technical, that’s for sure, but it follows the same vein as Symbolic in that it has that memorable aspect as well. For all you Priest freaks out there, Death were even cool enough to cover “Painkiller.” Chuck doesn’t have the piercing wail of Halford, but Hell, how many guys in Death Metal ever have that kind of range?
