Man have I been late for the party. This album would have been an absolute life changer for me in middle school when Slipknot and Bullet For My Valentine were the bands I considered the most hardcore and when I was at my peak in edginess. I wish I'd known about Death 10 years ago.

There are simply no flaws, the musicianship and attention to detail are just perfect. I typically would make my reviews a lot longer than this but I have no more words for this album. Simply a masterpiece

PERFECT

Absolutely godlike. Or should I say ungodlike? On Symbolic, Death arguably perfect multiple strains of death metal before they even come to fruition. Countless modern death metal bands owe their very existence to this masterpiece. One of the greatest albums of all time.

This was my first encounter with Death's discography. And for a pretty experimented metalhead as myself, I think this is great. Incredible drumming, precise and aggressive. I loved Chuck's vocals and guitar playing. The solos and melodies are excelent for what death metal sounds like. It is an incredible album.

Death's best album. Chuck's voice here sounds great, and the guitar work is unbelievable. Top notch songwriting. One of the greatest metal albums ever made.
