Official press release: Relapse Records is honored to announce a partnership with Perseverance Holdings Ltd. and the Schuldiner family to reissue the legendary catalog of heavy metal luminary Chuck Schuldiner and his bands Death, Control Denied, and Mantas. Chuck Schuldiner's Death, one of the most important and influential metal bands of all-time, will see the first official digital releases of its legendary albums 'Scream Bloody Gore', 'Leprosy', 'Spiritual Healing', 'Human', 'Individual Thought Patterns', and 'The Sound Of Perseverance' tomorrow, May 11th at this location. These digital releases will come two days before Chuck Schuldiner would have celebrated his 43rd birthday. Schuldiner passed away on December 13, 2001 after fighting a long, recurring battle with brain cancer. Relapse will also reissue an expanded version of the classic debut album, 'The Fragile Art Of Existence,' from Schuldiner's progressive heavy metal band Control Denied in late 2010 as well as the first-ever collection by his pre-Death project Mantas. The expanded version of "The Fragile Art of Existence" will include bonus tracks, extra band photography, expanded art and packaging and more. Details on both releases are forthcoming. Long-range plans include the completion and official release of the final Control Denied album 'When Man and Machine Collide.' Recorded over 10 years ago at Morrisound Studios with producer Jim Morris, 'When Man and Machine Collide' was tracked by Schuldiner but left incomplete upon Chuck's passing.
