Control Denied, ‘The Fragile Art of Existence’ — Reissue

Relapse Records

Chuck Schuldiner continues to enjoy a metallic legacy even in death. While most known for screaming bloody gore as the frontman for Death, Schuldiner’s Control Denied will have their first album reissued with deluxe treatment through Relapse this fall. ‘The Fragile Art of Existence’ was originally released in 1999, before Schuldiner — who only played guitar in the band — was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor that eventually claimed his life.

The reissue is remastered and repackaged, with liner notes from Richard Christy, as he drummed on the record initially, before moving beyond the metal pastures to work with Howard Stern.

Other special features of the reissued ‘The Fragile Art of Existence’ will include never-before-seen photographs, as well as over an hour of previously unreleased demo and rehearsal tracks.

Two versions of the album will be available starting Oct. 26. The worldwide version is a two-CD set including the original album plus a bonus CD of early demo material. The second version will be limited to 1,000 copies and is a three-disc set including an extra bonus disc of demo tracks — many of which have Schuldiner on vocals. The three-disc set will be available at Relapse.com exclusively.
