The Sound of Perseverance is the seventh and final studio album by American death metal band Death, released on September 15, 1998, by Nuclear Blast. This is the only album to feature guitarist Shannon Hamm, drummer Richard Christy, and bassist Scott Clendenin. The average song length on this album is around six minutes. Also, it was a breakthrough album for drummer and later radio star Richard Christy, in the tradition of previous drummers like Gene Hoglan and Sean Reinert.

DEATH, the heavy metal institution founded, realized, and helmed by legendary guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, released its final studio album The Sound of Perseverance (’98) to massive worldwide critical acclaim. The Sound o. s the masterstroke of one of metal’s true pioneers and innovators, and indeed worthy of the worship, adoration, and accolades that announced its original release (’98).

Words cannot do this album enough justice. This is a truly glorious metal release, certainly Death's finest hour, and easily one of the top metal albums of all time. The sheer ferocity and emotion that channels through each of the intricate, progressive guitar melodies shatters every low opinion of the American metal scene. When you combine Chuck Schuldiner's shrieking vocals (his eeriest performance ever) with the most talented, cohesive lineup yet, you get the definitive Death album

Some of the song names on The Sound of Perseverance were originally going to appear on the first Control Denied album. When Death was signed to Nuclear Blast Chuck agreed to make one last Death album before moving forward with Control Denied. LP version limited to 400 copies on red vinyl. Japanese version released on Victor Entertainment. Reissued by Nuclear Blast in 2001.

The Sound of Perseverance was my first Death album. I was 15 at the time, with the anatomical and mental maturity of the average 13 year old, and the uplifting, motivational themes of most of these songs struck a resonant chord with me. I listened to this quite a bit, and it was at the time one of the few death metal albums I could tolerate. Little did I know, however, of Death's true masterpieces - Scream Bloody Gore, Human, Individual Thought Patterns, and Symbolic. From what I can tell, the Sound of Perseverance would have been the start of that had Death continued on. Maybe it was just a flop album, but the recycled riffs and pandering lyrical themes firmly tell me otherwise. Both "Scavenger of Human Sorrow" and "Voice of the Soul" (an instrumental which I will further explain later on) reuse riffs from "Out of Touch" from Individual Thought Patterns.

Death end their career on a really high note. This is easily one of the best final albums that I've heard come from metal. Goddamn, do the instrumentals steal the show on this one! I've made it no secret that I'm a sucker for good instrumentation, and these guys certainly exceeded my expectations on that front for every single one of their albums, and this one is no exception. The drumming in particular, good god, it's fucking amazing. In fact, I would even go as far as to argue that this album presents us with some of the best guitar work I've heard from Death. The guitar solos on songs like Bite The Pain, Story To Tell, and Flesh And The Power It Holds are easily some of the best that have come from this group. This is another album from Death that you couldn't possibly expect me to name a least favourite from.

This album is considered by many to be Chuck Schuldiner's progressive death metal opus. Wait, death metal" But these vocals are screamed at a high pitch, not growled or grunted! A lot of the riffs don't really bring death metal to mind, either

I have the impression that this entry is wrong. This is the same with https://www.discogs.com/Death-The-Sound-Of-Perseverance-/release/12518839 which is the anniversary edition for the 20 years of the album. The 20 years are this year and not 2017...
