The fifth installment in Relapse’s exhaustive reissue campaign of Death's immensely influential catalog is "Leprosy," the band’s titanic second album.

"Leprosy" is set for an April 29th release date in North America, April 28th in the UK/World, and April 25th in Benelux/Germany/Finland.

The entire album, as well as the bonus material, has been painstakingly remastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Nile, etc) and will be reissued on a variety of formats including 2xCD, limited edition 3xCD, LP, picture disc LP, limited edition 2xLP boxset, and digital.

The deluxe 2xCD contains 50 minutes of previously unheard and unreleased "Leprosy" demos and rehearsal material housed in an embossed o-card package with a 24 page booklet featuring unseen pictures of the band as well as brand new liner notes from Ian Christe (Sirius/XM) and Jeremy Wagner (Broken Hope). The LP features the remastered core album on wax together with a download card for all of the music included on the 2xCD.
