Going out with a bang. I can't think of many artists whose last album was as good as this. Death's discography includes many amazing albums, with this being arguably one of, if not their best. I go back and forth with this and Symbolic, but they're both utterly outstanding pieces of work. One of my favourite albums ever made.
