  • Damn, this album kicks you in the teeth from the beginning and only pauses twice briefly before it’s over. I had reservations about buying this album at first. I’m not a huge metal fan and I knew Sepultura was an 80’s death metal band. I just read so many reviews sayig how great it was I really couldn’t resist. WOWI normally enjoy more mellodic or clean vocals but Max has got a set of lungs on him. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a roar as deep as his especially right out of the gate(“Roots, Bloody Roots”).This album follows no formula whatsoever and each song takes on a life of its own. There a two lighter tracks, a really great acoustic guitar solo and a song with the band playing acoustic and a tribe chanting and singing. That one is pretty impressive.Others favorites include the crazy “Ratamahatta”. This song jumped out at me and has remained my favorite song on the album since I got it. Masterful percussion throuhgout the entire album. The guitar playing is cool because some of the songs take on a traditional death metal grind but others have the downtuned sound of early nu-metal(let’s say Korn but incredibly heavier). This counts alot to the originality and diversity of the album.Anyway, go out and buy it if you like good music.
