For this latest episode of The Broken Record Player Podcast, I am joined by Necrotic Nick and Jammin Jon from the YouTube channel Thralls of Metal. We’re taking a look at one of the classics from the Florida Death Metal scene: Death’s 1988 masterpiece Leprosy!
We take a look at every song, talk about the mad scientist behind Death, Mr. Chuck Schuldiner, as well as discuss how Leprosy really helped to put Death Metal on the map.
Leprosy expanded Death’s sound from their debut, Scream Bloody Gore, and really showcased the talent of Chuck. Sadly, as we discuss in the episode, Chuck’s life was cut short due to cancer, but through albums like Leprosy, he left behind a legacy that will never die.
