that the Choosing Death: The Improbable History of Death Metal & Grindcore Mutilation demo "earned [Chuck] Schuldiner that elusive recording contract", stating it was "the band's most polished material in the form of the three-track demo". Author  Ian Christe, in his book , noted that Death's demos "became as heavily shared by tape traders as any well-established act in metal".
