In my opinion, when it comes to Death, I find that Symbolic (album) is the only album to ever come close to the Human (album)-- scratch that. It's by far my favourite album from Death. I never thought anything would surpass Human, but then Symbolic showed up. :)

I found Scream Bloody Gore (album) and Individual Thought Patterns (album) to be disappointing, really. While there were a few tracks I loved (and still love), the albums in general were disappointing to me.

But, with tracks such as: Zero Tolerance, Empty Words and Sacred Serenity, Symbolic really brought Death 'back'. Chuck's great grunting ability and extremely progressive yet melodic guitar-play really make this album come alive. Death used session musicians during the production of Symbolic, and I must say they did a great job.

My rating for this album? 4.5+ out of 5
