Second re-release of the sixth full-length album by the legendary American Progressive Death Metal band.
Like its predecessors, the album is Progressive and technically advanced. It also has higher production values than previous albums, being considerably less evil on its overall sound. It is notable that the average song length on this album is around five minutes, while it was around four minutes on "Human" and "Individual Thought Patterns", perhaps due to slowed down song tempos closer to that of traditional Death Metal. It was also the only album to feature Kelly Conlon on bass. Chuck Schuldiner's growl also became noticeably higher on this release, which was continued on their final studio album "The Sound Of Perseverance" and culminated with their cover of Judas Priest's "Painkiller".
The album was received very well by the music critics. ranks the album as the 7th greatest Extreme Metal album and the 58th greatest Heavy Metal album of all time. As of 2002, Symbolic sold 36,000 copies in the U.S.
Roadrunner Records, 1995/2007 (RR 8957-2). Made in Germany.
