The people behind the scenes of death metal pioneers, Death have been doing a great job of remastering the classics, and giving the fans something new to sink their teeth into. But it looks like everything that came before was just peanuts compared to what the estate of Chuck Schuldiener have planned. Late last week, the following was posted on the official Death Facebook page:
The GIANT News announcement…kinda got out of hand. Making announcements in this running format is weird because there is then a thread of hundreds of responses (some, about Chuck coming back from the dead, were a bit OTT…but nevermind). I know it isn't possible to make everyone happy, but we're trying like hell for the fans. Anyhow, the news is this: Roadrunner has sent me a contract after working on this for well over a year, allowing for Symbolic to be part of a monster DEATH, 14 disc box set on Relapse. Obviously that would allow us to do Symbolic-era bonus material, as well. We could also (obviously) include stuff NOT on the reissues. Looking at 2013 +. If this hadn't been worked out with RR, it would have only included 6 DEATH albums. So, this is fucking killer news. ERIC
Holy moly! Fourteen disc box set? This would be the definitive box set collection for any diehard fan of Death. I'm intrigued.
