In short, if you like metal and thrash, you must own this album.
I’ve been listening to Sepultura since Schizophrenia, and, for some reason, that somehow gives me the feeling that I can say the following with a bit of authority: This is one of the best Sepultura albums of all time. I saw them live for “Beneath the Remains”, “Arise” and a few times thereafter (e.g., Tattoo the Earth). Andreas Kisser is simply one of the best metal lead guitarists of all time. The high-pitched yet earthly and “organic” leads on “Beneath” and “Arise” ‘remain unique to that Sepul-sound. This album builds off that unique sound. I’ve enjoyed this album tremendously. BRAVO!
