Death, the highly influential Orlando death metal band, have been reissuing their catalog on Relapse, and the newest installment in that is their 1988 sophomore album, Leprosy, which comes out next week (4/29). The album was remastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Converge) and comes with previously unreleased bonus material and a 24-page booklet with previously unseen photos and new liner notes. The reissue can be pre-ordered in multiple formats here. The double album remaster (bonus material included) can be streamed in full, via Loudwire, below.

In other news, Death, the legendary Detroit protopunk band who were recently subject of a documentary and who are now very active (see recent live pic above), unearthed more archival material with Death III which came out via Drag City today (4/22). They also appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show last night (4/21) for an interview and a performance of their classic "Freakin' Out." Videos of that below.

For one week only, I'll be having a Pony Bones Premier Wagu Burger being sold exclusively through Cake Shop. The craziness starts on May 1st. Don't miss it.

Novelty resurgence for hipsters to pretend they were into them or their brother was.

Not punk, not good.
Get all mad, teenage and rip the shreds out of me.
Don't care, not coming back to see it.

"Novelty resurgence for hipsters to pretend they were into them or their brother was."

As if we needed another reason as to why the metal Death is obviously superior.

Leprosy fucking rules. A death metal classic. I don't know who those other guys are. I don't care.

One of the sickest albums i've ever heard. Also a great Death classic.
