I can't listen to them past Chaos AD, and even that album isn't great. Soulfly is basically an extension of the Roots sound of "Korn gone tribal", and for obvious reasons, that doesn't do anything for me. What I've heard from Cavalera Conspiracy was decent, but not enough to prompt me to check out more of it.

Anything from Schizophrenia, Beneath the remains or Arise. :D 

Thank you "Grayscale Dawn" :smile: I'm going to check some of those tracks from those albums on youtube.  My ex-boyfriend always used to listen to them and I thought they were sick when Max was with them. 

Ok just watched Sepultura live Dr. Music Festival 1996 HD on yoututbe and every song is sick!

What is Sepultura's best song?

Depends what type of music fits your taste. If you like fairly muddied, underground death metal, then the early albums. If you like a bit of bounce  and crunch in your music you could try 'Chaos AD' and 'Roots'. I was never a fan of Sepultura prior to 'Chaos AD' so I have no problem with the latter two albums. I think 'Refuse/Resist' is a great song.

If by "muddied underground death metal" you mean "aggressive yet catchy thrash with solid late 80s/early 90s production", then yes, "Beneath The Remains" and "Arise" would definitely fit the bill. Their strength was what drove the big push for "Chaos AD", and I'd hardly call them underground - "Arise" went platinum. You should definitely give it another chance the next time you're in the mood for something along those lines.

'Arise' is pretty catchy in parts, no doubt. However, Monsieur Blanc, I was speaking about the first three albums. Anyway, isn't the phrase 'solid late 80s/early 90s production' just a euphemism for 'muddied underground death metal' to millennials? Just kidding. I don't want to give anyone morbid visions...

There's actually a pretty broad array of production choices being made by newer bands these days. "Raw and murky" has made quite a comeback over the past few years. And morbid visions are just an inescapable reality of life, didn't you know. I suppose, being undead, you've put all that behind you.

This forum is full of undead and magical creatures, and here I am with graying hair and bad knees...

I wrote a hilarious post about "raw and murky" sounding like your sordid and nefarious past, but it didn't stick. Would have been good though.

Castle Requiem is full of morbid visions for those unfortunate enough to stumble across the drawbridge amidst the howling of wolves and the ghosts of lost lovers who call hauntingly from the moat, eager to draw travellers to watery graves. Yet those who manage to elude the sirens ultimately turn out to be the unlucky ones once they enter the ancient oak doors into the ground floor gallery, where generations of Requiems gaze down from portraits profane and satanikkal.

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious. 

      4/5

    • It is fair to say that the Greek stalwarts of the Black Metal scene now have a sound that rarely ventures into the territory so well tread on "Thy Mighty Contract" and "Non Serviam" but it is also fair to say that "The Heretics" sounds from start to finish like a band who firmly stamp themselves on the metal map for 2019.  What album number thirteen from Rotting Christ does is take a measured approach to variation and repetition to build a memorable and lasting experience.

      The sound itself goes from dark and brooding metal and hard rock to almost Gothic metal proportions.  Yet at the same time that familiar melodic warmth remains in situ throughout.  More often than not there's that big soaring melodic riff riding the vocals like a surfer with his board.  "The Voice of the Universe" does this superbly as does "The Sons of Hell".  The overall feel the record as a whole leaves me with is one of ritualistic allure, tracks like "Hallowed Be Thy Name" and "Fire God and Fear" build well like powerful incantations being cited from voluminous tomes, flooding forwards intermittently with flowing dark melodies.


      It does remind me a lot of Behemoth ("The Satanist" Behemoth, not last years pompous bollocks Behemoth), with the theme of religion so heavily referenced but at the same time it feels like a much more cohesive effort than recent Behemoth keeping a level of consistency and restraint to the songwriting which holds the attention well.  Only once does the album visit anything like Black Metal on "I Believe", here they base a poem by Nikolaos Kazantzakis at the centre of the chaotic and frantic pace and sadly it fails miserably on my ears, coming across as just filler.  My only other criticism is that it does get a bit samey in places (namely the intros to each track).  Otherwise it is a perfectly respectable piece of dark metal.  C'mon, we can't this black metal anymore folks.

    • So here I am reviewing the new Drudkh album...oh...wait a minute...no apparently it isn't Drudkh, it is Windswept.  A quick look on the internet tells me that Windswept are Drudkh minus keyboards in terms of members.  Therefore Windswept is just a less atmospheric version of Drudkh?  That's not really a question as I have heard "The Onlooker" and I know it is in fact a statement of truth.

      I don't get it.  If I want to hear a Drudkh record I will just put one on.  Similarly, if I was a member of Drudkh and I wanted to make a new record, I'd just pick up the phone to my bandmates and start the writing process.  The fact that the majority of the band have made a different band just to not have atmosphere seems a little grandiose to me, although I get that the stylistic integrity of Drudkh is maintained. 

      It isn't that the album is bad.  Perfectly solid and driving, melodic BM cleverly framed by a music box intro and outro is what you get here folks.  It just sounds so much like Drudkh I can't get my head around the fact that it is just a below par Drudkh offering.  The one thing the record is crying out for is some atmosphere - THE FUCKING IRONY!


      If you can forget the existence of a Ukranian BM band called Drudkh, or perhaps have just been born into the world of BM and have no previous concept of the 3 band members here being involved in anything else then you will no doubt easily spot the merits of "The Onlooker".  For me it served no other purpose than to give me a really short review to write this week (and to put some Drudkh on).

      Based on it's merit as a standalone album = 3/5

      Hideously critical mind of a Drudkh fan rating = 2/5
