SEPULTURA

Recommended Posts

Re: SEPULTURA I got into the band around the late 90's with the material of the time. I liked his voice when I heard it. I had trouble with his monotone 80's clean singing voice but I don't mind it now. Great band however.

Re: SEPULTURA Been a fan of Sepultura for a long time. Arise is an intense album. Loved Chaos A.D and Roots. The albums after that I couldn't quite get into. There'd be only some tracks on the album that stuck out but as a whole something felt lacking. Their previous two efforts, A-Lex and Kairos were more impressive. It's more inkeeping with an upfront sound, with raw, passionate energy. Never been to see them live, though I did watch their live in Sao Paulo dvd which is one of my favourite live dvd's. Here's a link to the full concert to give you an idea of how good they can be. Plus Derrick has good presence for a front man. Skip to 4:47 when the music will kick in. DYmpz5lNHq8

Re: SEPULTURA

Only good Overkill is Feel the fire and Taking over' date=' the rest of their groove shit sucks.[/quote'] They released 3 albums after Taking Over that were thrash before releasing their first groove album I Hear Black, and those 3 albums are better than the first 2.

Re: SEPULTURA

I like 'em all up until Max was fired' date=' and didn't pay any attention to the new stuff until Kairos, which is actually pretty good.[/quote'] I can't stand their tribal Korn album Roots, and Chaos AD is okay groove metal, but their first three albums are the Sepultura I think of. Arise is pretty good too, but much less interesting than what preceded it. I cant say I've enjoyed any of their new stuff either.

Re: SEPULTURA

I know a lot of people hate Roots, but I've always really liked it. I like the heaviness of it, the groove and the sludginess, the production, the catchiness of the songs, all that. I like the first Cavalera Conspiracy album quite a bit, too, but ironically Soulfly's never done all that much for me, even though the sound is similar to Roots. I've liked the odd song here and there, particularly on later albums...

Re: SEPULTURA

Roots doesn't feel heavy to me at all, it just feels lazy and uninspired, they used to write some of the best riffs ever, but jumped on the Nu-metal bandwagon. It's fine if you like that sort of thing, but it's just pop music dressed up as metal, and to go from Schizophrenia and Beneath the Remains to that makes it worse.

Re: SEPULTURA If it had come out after 2000, I might think they were jumping on the bandwagon, but there really was no nu-metal bandwagon in 1996. I don't think I'd even heard Korn when it came out. I'd seen people wearing Korn shirts, but I didn't know what the hell it was. :lol:

Re: SEPULTURA

i like them i perfer max over derrieck karios is good what about max and iggors other band cavalera conspriancy their first cd was is great second one good
It's not even a contest, I don't know why anyone would pick the Derrick era over Max's albums with the band. The last two were definitely dwindling in quality (especially on the shitty tribal Korn album Roots), but their early work was fantastic. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
