Notes:
Leprosy is the second studio album by American death metal band Death, released on November 16 1988, by Combat Records. Notably different in tone and quality from the 1987 debut, it is the first example of Scott Burns' work heard on many of the death metal and grindcore albums of that era. The cover is featured in Metal: A Headbanger's Journey. It is the first album to feature drummer Bill Andrews and the only one to feature guitarist Rick Rozz.

This release sounds incredible when compared to the original (I have a '88 UK copy). Much heavier and beefed up sound overall. I wonder if it was remastered?

The sound quality good not excellent but i believe this is due to the original recording not the pressing you know? during the mixing/mastering? That being said the lps are nice on the clear tbh i still haven't listened to the bonus material on mine, the album is good though if you have an eq in your receiver or a seperate EQ deck you may want to cut the treble a little the cymbal hits and guitars sound a little staticy until cutting the treble and bring the bass up slightly when playing it. If you have no way of altering the mix with EQ, or if you are not a fan of raw old school sounding production this album may not be for you, just letting you know what to expect. If you have EQ it's golden a most excellent album and definitely worth the investment.

The pressing is outstanding very quiet. The studio recording are great!! The second Lp with the live recording is not worth being on this release. Not really even worth listening to and I'm a die hard fan.

Anyone has any idea what those weird letters in the bootleg say? They're right after the credits.

This Long Box edition did exist, but no one has added this one yet. Please correct some information in this version.

This album was produced by Dan Johnson, NOT Scott Burns. Scott Burns was only the engineer. Get this right in the introduction, will you? And get over Scott Burns, he's very good, done many classic albums, BUT still THE HEAVIEST DEATH METAL PRODUCTION OF ALL TIMES belongs to Dan Johnson on Leprosy. Amen.

This UK pressing on CD or original US CD or record is the one to get. The recent reissue sounds horrible too loud and compressed.

1 addition is that Some/Mine also include a gold "Loaned for Promotion Only. Not for Sale" Stamp over part of the Barcode. A truly Legendary & Classic Beast(!!),but of course you know this! Loved their music since 1st Tape Trades for copies of the Death&Mantas
Demos & Rehearsals in 1984 & 85! It appears my M- -/M-(Looks M)of this LP is Rare for Quality. As well as M Cover for US Combat S.B.G. & M-/M- US Combat S.H.(also has the Gold Promo Stamp,but that seems more prevalent with this one)! Same with the Early Bathory's,Etc....!! Why? I Guess Many People Abused Their's After Breaking the Seal...? Not bragging about this Quality Stuff,it's just an Observation,is All. Seems Weird to Me. Legendary Death Metal Album(& Band,of course,on All,&Later Stuff Added More Talented Technicality,Too,Though Always Talent)! All Great,R.I.P., Chuck. Saw Show AND *Hung out with Him on *This *Tour on My Birthday, Where The Concert Attendance Was Right Around **14 !! **People!!?!!...!!??!!... All Were At *Another Boston Thrash Show That*Same Night, *I Left Early To Catch The Death Set!!! (+ 2 Other Death Concerts=3,Only Hung That 1). Good Times!
