Trivia: Despite being both credited and pictured on this album, Chuck Schuldiner said that he handled the bass parts not Terry Butler, who only joined the band right after the recording sessions of "Leprosy" were completed. So, this means that "Spiritual Healing" was Butler's only proper recording with Death.
