Death (the death metal band of Chuck Schuldiner)
The band was originally started as Mantas in 1983 and changed its name to Death a year later.
Death was an American metal band founded in 1983. The band's founder, Chuck Schuldiner, is considered "a pioneering force in death metal". The band ceased to exist after Schuldiner died of brain cancer in 2001, though it remains an enduring metal brand.
Death is considered one of the most influential bands in metal. The band's debut, Scream Bloody Gore, has been described as "death metal's first archetypal document" and "the first true death metal record". One music biographer has referred to Schuldiner as the "Father of Death Metal" while another has claimed that Schuldiner is "readily acknowledged as the true founder of the U.S. death metal scene".
As of 2013, Death had sold over 3 million albums worldwide, with over 1,000,000 copies sold by June 2013 in the U.S. alone (excluding the numerous sales before the SoundScan era) making them the top-selling death metal band worldwide.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
