Well, what can be said nearly 9 years after Chuck Schuldiner's death? Well not much but the fact that he came, he delivered glorious music and then passed away way too early. His music and legacy though, still lives on and is definitely an inspiration to many musicians and to this day Chuck is still hailed as a true metalpioneer with his groundbreaking riffs and compositions.
After releasing albums like 'Individual Thought Patterns', 'Symbolic' and later 'The Sound
of Perseverance' with his band DEATH, Chuck cemented himself as a genuine heavymetal-enthusiast and true heavymetal-musician and so joined by well-experienced musicians "The Fragile Art
of Existence" was recorded and released in 1999 to great critical acclaim.
Now, while all types of accolades and praises for "The Fragile Art Oo Existence" are welldocumented in numerous album-reviews, this re-issue from Relapse Records has focus on shedding light on new and previously unreleased CONTROL DENIED-tracks, in the shape of a bonus-cd containing 9 tracks from the CONTROL DENIED-demos from both '97 and '99. - even breaking one in where Chuck sings the vocals himself. For any DEATH/Chuck Schuldiner/CONTROL DENIED-fan this is a fairly good buy and also a perfect opportunity to rediscover one of the last true heavymetal-albums ever made ...
- LET THE METAL FLOW!!
