Before “Schizophrenia”, “Beneath the Remains”, or “Arise”, Sepultura was an angry and determined Brazilian band looking to get noticed, which they did with “Morbid Visions”. This is Sepultura playing heavily Venom-influenced black metal that features all the imagry you’d expect from an old Slayer album, and it must be heard to be believed. The production is beyond shoddy, and the musicianship is hardly as accomplished as it would be on later albums, but the seething attitude and demonic imagry is worth the price of admission alone. Songs like “Troops of Doom”, “Crucifixion”, “Antichrist”, and “Necromancer” are simple and unapologetic, and it’s hard to believe that those songs were written by Max Cavalera; the same guy who has done countless material “dedicated to God” on his Soulfly albums. New Sepultura fans may want to check this out after hearing “Beneath the Remains”, “Arise”, or “Chaos A.D.”, while older fans who have never heard this deserve to pick it up.
