Biography of Band

Death was first formed by Chuck Schuldiner under the name Mantas in 1983 when he joined forces with two local musicians
named Rick Rozz and Kam Lee, both from a band called Massacre. Chuck then moved from Orlando, Florida to California and
left them behind. Their first studio album was released in 1987 and the band then became the first big death metal band in
the world. Growling vocals had been used by bands like Bathory, Hellhammer and Venom before but it had never been done
like this and in the US before. Death quickly established a name for themselves and are by now a legendary band for metal
fans all over the world. In 1990, nearing the beginning of a tour together with the German thrash metal band Kreator,
Chuck decided to leave the band. The band went on tour without him bu later on he reformed the band with a completely new
line-up while Butler and Andrews left to reform their old band Massacre. The band was no more when band leader Chuck
Schuldiner died of cancer on December 13th, 2001.
