LEPROSY = THE DEATH ALBUM WITH “PULL THE PLUG” ON IT!

Leprosy is the second studio album by Tampa’s Death, released on August 12, 1988, on Combat Records fancy gatefold Vinyl. It is best known for the track “Pull the Plug“, which is about as close to a hit song as a bandlike death can get. Leprosy was much more progressive than the “Zombie Ritual” album. Much of this can be assigned to the engineering work of Scott Burn who was the go-to thrash metal producer of the time.

The only constant thing about death is you can count on a continually changing lineup. Each album has almost an entirely different group of players on it outside of founder Chuck Schuldiner. This album featured Terry Butler who now plays bass and Obituary but didn’t actually play on the album.

Many critics and fans alike consider Leprosy to be Death’s best album. Many metal radio stations and even MTV played the song “Pull the Plug” in a relatively frequent rotation (at least as extreme music goes).
By the time the subsequent album “Spiritual Healing” was released almost the entire band was replaced with a new group of players outside of Chuck Schuldiner,
