Death - Spiritual Healing
- Custom Butterfly with Splatter Edition)
Vinyl LP pressing. Spiritual Healing is the third studio album by death metal band Death, originally released on February 16, 1990. This is the band's only album to feature both guitarist James Murphy and bassist Terry Butler and the last to feature drummer Bill Andrews. This is the first of Death's albums to show Schuldiner's lyrics moving away from the gore and horror themes of previous works, focusing instead on themes of society including abortion, genetics, and televangelism, a direction that would be further refined on 1991's Human album. The musical content is more obviously melodic, a facet highlighted by James Murphy's characteristic lead guitar playing.
