Page dedicated to the memory of legend Chuck Schuldiner, extraordinary guitarist, songwriter and singer. Bandleader of Death/Control Denied.
Charles Michael "Chuck" Schuldiner (1967 – 2001) was an American musician best known as the singer, guitarist and songwriter for the band Death. He founded Death in 1983, under the name Mantas. He is often referred to as "The Father of Death Metal". Schuldiner himself was modest about his part in the history of death metal, saying "I don’t think I should take the credits for this death metal stuff. I’m just a guy from a band, and I think Death is a metal band".
