4 stars Death is a milestone band in metal genre, that everybody knows , but also this band combined extremly well death metal with prog elements, that give them a new status: prog-metal gods. So after an absence of three years Chuck is back, and with a full force. Sound of perseverence released in 1998 was a kinda come back to the fusion metal that they used on Individual, less death rooted like the previous one, the members shines on every piece. The death metal elements are very well melted with techno-trash so good that is hard to forget an album like this one. The new drummer Richard Christy is absolute mindblowing, he's nuts, i think is one of top 10 metal drumers in the last 10 years. Shannon guitar and Scott bass are new to teh public but man what a musicians, they grew around Chuck's music and the result is clear here, they were the best choice in Schuldiner's agenda. The music is very strong with a lot's of time signatures and is very progressive. To me the best track are:Scavenger of Human Sorrow and Flesh and the Power it Holds, the rest is above average music. In the end an essential album in metal genre and i will give very easy 4 stars, recommended to all prog fans, like on every Death album pieces are only killers no fillers. .
