Symbolic is the sixth and penultimate studio album by American death metal band Death, released on March 21, 1995, by Roadrunner Records.
Death’s 6th full length album, originally released in 1995 through Roadrunner Records.
Chuck had specifically asked the label not to advertise the album as a Death Metal album, the label ignored him and advertised it as such on Metal Hammer magazine, that arose a huge fight between them.
Symbolic was intended to be the last Death album and the end of the band. But Nuclear Blast didn’t agreed to release Chuck’s Control Denied album without having one ”sure” success with a release bearing the ”Death” branding.
This is how ”The Sound Of Perseverance” came to life… with songs originally written for singers other than Chuck and for the band Control Denied.
