Video footage of late DEATH/CONTROL DENIED mastermind Chuck Schuldiner during a promotional trip in Europe in 1991 can be viewed below. The clip was shot and edited by DEATH manager Eric Greif who was with Schuldiner during the trip. The three-minute clip shows highlights from the cross-country trip, culminating with Schuldiner's interview for MTV's "Headbangers Ball" at the MTV studios in London.
The bulk of DEATH's catalog was recently made available digitally for the first time. "Scream Bloody Gore", "Leprosy", "Spiritual Healing", "Human", "Individual Thought Patterns" and "The Sound Of Perseverance" can be purchased via iTunes at this location.
Relapse will release an expanded version of the classic debut album, "The Fragile Art Of Existence", from Schuldiner's progressive heavy metal band CONTROL DENIED this October. The reissue will include bonus tracks, extra band photography, expanded art and packaging and more.
A range of officially licensed DEATH, CONTROL DENIED, and MANTAS merchandise can be purchased here. Many classic album art designs will follow in the coming months, making some highly sought-after designs available officially for the first time in years.
Schuldiner passed away on December 13, 2001 at age 34 after a battle with pontine glioma, a rare type of brain tumor.
