Dead Soul is the second studio album by Chilean thrash metal band Criminal. It was released in 1997 by Inferno Records and produced by Vincent Wojnar who had worked with bands such as Kreator and Machine Head. The album was released in Santiago de Chile and presented in a concert supporting Napalm Death. Mitch Harris from Napalm Death came to the stage to play "Demoniac Possession" Pentagram with Criminal. The promotional tour included countries such as Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela and Colombia, where the band performed at the "Rock the Park" festival in front of 50,000 people.[citation needed] Music videos "Collide", "Victimized" and "Slave Masters" were broadcast on major television channels.[citation needed]

Style[edit]

According to Rock Hard magazine, the album is clearly rooted in Death Metal and reminds of early pieces by Sepultura.[1]

Reception[edit]

Dead Soul sold over 10,000 copies in Chile. Metal Blade Records distributed the album in United States and Europe, earning very positive reviews in related magazines such as Rock Hard in Germany[1] and the American Metal Maniacs.[citation needed]
