Death – Human (1991)

There is nothing more human than Death, right? To live is to die, or so I’ve been told. There’s a sadness (moreso than usual) to Chuck’s death (his actual death, not the band Death) due to the subject matter he dealt with throughout his career. Puns aside, Chuck and company confronted death (not Death) head on, from its gruesome side earlier on, to the more philosophical or esoteric musings on later records. This man was definitely taken from us too soon.

Human is probably my second favourite “later” Death album, after Sound Of Perseverance. Things have a little bit of a plod to them, but the musicianship on show is undeniable here.
