Remastered re-release of the third full-length album by the legendary Brazilian Thrash/Death Metal band.
An ultra-classic from one of the most powerful Death/Thrash Metal bands to ever come!
This album marked the band's transition from third-world obscurity to major contenders in the international Extreme Metal arena.
As soon as the deceptively gentle acoustic intro gives way to the title track's Thrashing brutality, the listener is propelled at maximum speed and intensity through to the very last crunch of "Primitive Future". In between, Sepultura offer their first bona fide hits with "Inner Self" and the inspired "Stronger Than Hate", featuring lyrics written by Atheist's Kelly Shaefer. It's not over there as they charge ahead with the triple threat of "Mass Hypnosis", "Sarcastic Existence" and "Slaves of Pain", all of which feature mind-blowing solos from guitarist Andreas Kisser, thunderous double-bass work from drummer Igor Cavalera, and the furious howling of singer Max Cavalera. The complete absence of filler here makes this one of the most essential Death/Thrash Metal albums of all time!
This is an album that will strike your heart with memorable tunes that will stick in your mind for weeks and will definitely make you want to headbang violently as well as turn you into a speed addict. A jaw-dropping release! One of the greatest Metal albums of the 80's!! Any fan of Thrash Metal should get this album. Anyone looking for something heavier then Slayer or any of the Big Four should get this album!!!
