It’s truly astounding how consistent Death are at crafting top quality Death Metal, not only album to album, but song to song. Every Death release so far has been a fantastic showcase of new ideas and progression on top of all the classic traits that make it unmistakably Death. Individual Thought Patterns did not fail to exceed my expectations despite the legendary precursor Human.

This album has got to by Death’s most melodic, technical and progressive so far. The riffs are incredibly melodic and memorable, with multiple guitar melodies often playing wonderfully off each other. This of course does not take away from the brutality of the album; it borders on melodeath at times, but at the core is still classic OSDM. The album doesn’t sound incredibly evil compared to other Death Metal, but this is fitting with Chuck’s desire to focus on more philosophical subjects. As the album title suggests, this record is total brainfood, fortunately the kind where the riffs get stuck in your head.

What really blew me away on this one was the rhythm section. The drumming here in on another level, and so many patterns here were totally fresh. As I suspected, this is where Gene Hoglan made his debut in Death. His creativity with the kit is monstrous, and goes far beyond progressive or technical. He manages to craft entirely original beats in every song, and knows exactly when to go all out and when to serve the music with something slower or simpler. The basswork of Steve DiGio

이 음반은 베이스, 드럼이 미쳤다. 역시나 뚜렷한 주제의식과 파괴적인 사운드의 앨범. 슐린더는 천재다

Close second best Death album in my opnion. Amazing from start to finish. It paved the way to the king "Symbolic".

Individual Thought Patterns is one of Death's mid-releases and is another album with new line-up. Yes, Steve DiGiorgio was still left in the bass but Paul Masvidal was replaced by Andy LaRocque (King Diamond, Illwill) and Sean Reinert was replaced by Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Testament, etc.). This album clearly sounds like a band that just wanted to explore the progressive world and move away from the death metal world.

You don't need to like death metal; Death is heavily recommended either way, and this is a great album to prove that.

첫트랙의 인트로 듣자마자 아 이거 취향에 안맞겠구나 바로 느껴버린 작품. 바로 전작보다는 그래도 낫다는 생각은 드는데, 테크니컬 데스의 빈번한 하이플랫 연주접목에서 느껴지는 '무채색의 장식으로 화려하게 치장하고 휘두르는것같은 맛'을 별로 좋아하지 않습니다. 빠르게 조지는 드러밍은 절지동물 수십수백의 다리가 일사불란하게 움직이는것 같습니다.

내가 가지고 있던 메탈 음악에서의 베이스 기타에 대한 고정 관념을 박살내버린 앨범. 악보는 안 보았지만 연주를 듣기만 해도 테크데스라는 칭호가 너무나도 걸맞는 앨범이라고 생각한다.

솔직히 데스 전 앨범은 전부 100점을 주고 싶다. 하지만 5집앨범은 100점을 주기엔 뭔가 모자르지만 1번곡부터 제대로 달려주면서 가사도 예술이고 마지막곡인 좆문가는 빠르진 않지만 파워가 굉장하며 가사도 본인에게 매우 지대한 영향부터 끼쳤으며 당시 인터넷이 발달하지 않았어도 좆문가들이 날뛰었단 걸 추측해줬다.

곡 하나하나가 뛰어나지만 개성있지는 않다. 베이스 사운드는 너무 튀어 곡의 진중한 분위기를 흐트러뜨린다. (잉베이가 언급하기도 했던 문제점)

Along with its predecessor, Individual Thought Patterns is essentially a stream of never-ending musical superiority. Highly recommended.
