Or I guess Sepultura sound like Kreator, since this album came out before “Schizophrenia” and “Beneath the Remains.” I read a review of “Beneath the Remains” that said that album and “Reign in Blood” were the only albums that successfully encompassed both thrash and death metal, but I would have to add this album to the list as well. Many of the same elements that characterized other early thrash-death classics from Slayer and Sepultura are here: the lightning-fast riffs, the interplay between lead and rhythm guitars, the fast and thunderous drumming, and rumbling bass lines. Their lead singer spits out vocals with Tom Arayaesque speed, with some hints of the death growl mixed in. The musicians do an excellent job, nothing fancy, but they work well together in creating some very fast and brutal music. In conclusion, if you think metal reached its peak with albums like “Master of Puppets,” “Beneath the Remains,” and “Reign in Blood,” I highly recommend this album.
