This is a mighty groove metal masterpiece that captures the pioneering Sepultura at their creative highpoint before the departure of vocalist/riff maestro Max Cavalera.
This time around the guitars are detuned even further, the bass lines are heavier, the drumming is colossal and the vocals are ferocious. Every song is packed with interesting ideas and the attention to detail rewards repeated listening.
The overall sound is mesmerising as the band reach into their own tribal roots with pride and convey their hard-hitting message with impassioned honesty. An essential record.
