It was 1993 when DEATH cemented its reputation as one of the most creative and innovative progressive metal bands of our time by releasing its fifth studio album, “Individual Thought Patterns”. The album was their most technical and progressive material to date while displaying the full talents of DEATH mastermind Chuck Schuldiner.
In 2016, this legendary album will be brought back to life in the live setting. With its upcoming 2016 tour, “European Thought Patterns”, DEATH DTA will pay tribute to the masterpiece along with classic cuts from all of the DEATH albums. The DEATH DTA lineup will consist of Steve DiGiorgio (DEATH, TESTAMENT, SADUS), Gene Hoglan (DEATH, TESTAMENT, DARK ANGEL), Bobby Koelble (DEATH) and Max Phelps (EXIST), who have joined forces to resurrect those iconic songs, along with many more milestones from DEATH’s legendary history.
The “European Thought Patterns” tour is the latest endeavor in a series of tours that have seen DEATH DTA performing at dozens of festivals and countries across the globe, alongside such renowned artists as OBITUARY, CARCASS, KREATOR, and many more.
DEATH’s storied catalog has undergone a meticulous reissue campaign via Relapse Records.
