Leprosy is the second album by death metal band Death, released in 1988. 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 Black Raven: check out Samael. After their 3rd album they switched to drum computers and its sounded freat, too. But on this album it's Bill Adrews (also played in Massacre)...

    Especially the first four songs aren't anywhere near being bleak and dark. They're very fun to listen to, I find them rather mellow and even atmospheric, great choruses and I like the sound of the drums. They indeed often sound like it's a drum machine. But even if, it's not bad. Godflesh is a perfect example for a metal band with drum machine that sounds great, in that case probably better than it would be with a real drummer. That and the great album art (the pinky purply sky and the strange undead looking guy) create a late 80s feel in my head. Very good album but I like Human and Spiritual Healing more.

    I like this album a lot! One of the best Death records. Can't get enough of this? [artist]Gruesome[/artist] is a good band that has an album similar to this. Yup, it's called [album artist=Gruesome]Savage Land[/album].

    maybe, possibly, topped by Human but not those other two.

    My favorite Death album! Brutal with some technical awesomeness in it. Masterpiece!

    Every song is a masterpiece. Can't go wrong with Leprosy.
