Release Date: May 20, 2016
The seventh installment in Relapse’s comprehensive reissue campaign of DEATH’s immensely influential catalog is Scream Bloody Gore, the band’s genre-defining debut album. DEATH's legendary 1987 debut Scream Bloody Gore is more than just an untouchable album - upon its release, it was positively genre-creating. Scream Bloody Gore founded the quintessential death metal sound, with more tormented riffs, screams, and leads than the world had ever imagined, and established Chuck Schuldiner's inimitable phrasing and songwriting style as the most singular voice in the burgeoning genre. Today, the album is viewed unanimously as one of the all-time most important cornerstones of death metal.
2xCD contains 50 minutes of previously unheard and unreleased material from the original Scream Bloody Gore Florida recording sessions and rehearsal material from August 1986.
