DEATH to release a deluxe reissue of “Spiritual Healing”

1 min read

A deluxe edition reissue of DEATH‘s third album “Spiritual Healing” will be released next month.


From a press release:

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. 

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 the “Spiritual Healing” Death lineup. An iTunes deluxe edition will also be released containing five additional previously unreleased pre-“Human” rehearsal tracks not available on either of the CD versions. 

“Spiritual Healing” will be released on November 20 in North America, November 23 in Benelux, Germany and Finland, and November 26 in the rest of the world. 

“Spiritual Healing” follows the recent Relapse Records reissues of Death classics “Individual Thought Patterns”, “The Sound of Perseverance”, “Human” and the live collection “Vivus!” plus Chuck Schuldiner projects Mantas and 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 Death merch 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.
