Death album to be re-issued

The next chapter in Relapse's DEATH reissue campaign is the landmark, genre-defining album Spiritual Healing.  Originally released in 1990, Spiritual Healing marked a new turn in the Death discography, one which ushered in cleaner production, a new level of boundary pushing musicianship and songwriting skills that were previously unimaginable from a metal band.  Spiritual Healing sets the standard for riffs, insane time changes and of course mainman Chuck Schuldiner’s masterful guitar solos.  Now reissued as a double CD housed in super deluxe packaging featuring brand new liner notes from Death players James Murphy and Terry Butler, Chuck’s sister Beth Schuldiner and Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen, Disc 1 features a completely new remaster of the original album and Disc 2 contains 16 previously unreleased rehearsal, outtakes and studio instrumentals.  A remastered version of the track “Living Monstrosity” can be heard here.  

In addition to the 2-Disc edition, limited edition (2000 machine numbered copies) triple CD digipak will be available exclusively from .  The third CD features a never before released live set recorded in 1990 featuring theSpiritual Healing Death line up.  An iTunes deluxe edition will also be released containing 5 additional previously unreleased pre-Human rehearsal tracks not available on either of the CD versions.  The entire tracklisting is available below.  

Spiritual Healing is set for a November 20th North American release date, November 23rd in the Benelux / Germany/ Finland, and November 26th in the UK and rest of World.Spiritual Healing follows the recent Relapse Records re-issues of DEATH classics Individual Thought Patterns, The Sound of Perseverance, Human, and the live collection Vivus! plus Chuck Schuldiner projects MANTAS & CONTROL DENIED.  Like those reissues, this collection will contain extensive liner notes from previous members and never-before-seen photos of the band.  Pre-order options, including a new line of exclusive DEATHmerch and a super limited die-hard fan pack containing an exclusive shirt design, poster flag, and patch / pin / guitar pick / sticker set can be found at this location.
