Artist: Sepultura
The Brazilian thrashers are back with album number 15 and absolutely no letting up in terms of raw power and energy. You still get those lovely little nods towards the band’s heritage, the tribalistic nature of the drumming and the way the guitar parts are arranged. Sepultura are known to sound a certain way, their fans expect them to produce face melting music, and once again they don’t disappoint. Some might question how long they can keep going. Based on this album don’t expect a retirement announcement any time soon.
