SEPULTURA – Arise
This album, along with `Far Beyond Driven’, `South of Heaven, and `Master of Puppets’ are what caused my transformation into the metal-head I am today. I am forever indebted to this CD.
This is a Thrash Masterpiece…. Max’s Voice, while still growing at this point, was still one of the most vicious metal singers of the day. His guitar work, as well as the work of Andreas was amazing… precisely fast with aggressive riffs and amazing (and even sometimes innovative) solos… Paulo Jr. plays with such a sense of urgency and provides an excellent backing to the guitars. And last, but certainly not least is Max’s Brother Igor. Ideally from a musical perspective Max should have been playing in the shadow of his brother, not the other way around. Igor’s drumming is furious yet still implementing his `tribal’ vibe (Not as much as he would expand on this for future albums)
Arise is easily on the best Thrash Metal Albums to see the light of day… The 4-Piece Brazilian Metal heads would continue to make 2 more incredible tribal influenced metal albums… but the pure thrash aggression of this album was never equaled in their future works.
