The album inspirted a generation and was part of the metal revival. While metal has moved on, it still is a classic album. It tries to be fiery and fearsome, and is on a big scale, while at the same time there are hooks, melodies and reason in the tracks. Vocalist Max Cavalera roars passionately about injustice and destruction, and you get the impression he means it.
'Refuse/Resist' is a great opener and was an anthem, 'Biotech' and 'Propeganda' set the world to rights, and I ain't arguing with him! 'Kaiowas' and 'We Who Are Not As Others' slow things down successfully without losing your interest.
It was a milestone, and needs to be remembered.
The album has been structured to perfection, opening with an embryonic heartbeat before the thunderdrums of Igor Cavalera come in to mimic it, and then there's THAT two-note riff. From this striking opening the album continues to impress, each song on its own merits. "Territory" starts with that excellent drum fill before descending into heavy, heavy chugging. "Slave New World" may just have the best riff ever, alternating between slow grooves and crushing breakdowns. "Amen" is a much slower song with some fantastic playing all round, subtle but there when looked for. The fifth track, however, is what sets this album and all subsequent Seps records apart from their earlier material- the inclusion of the acoustic tribal jam "Kaiowas". Sure, the band had done restrained pieces before, but none so tinged with their own culture and heritage. Needless to say, it spawned a thousand imitators, and the band themselves would take this aspect of their sound perhaps to overkill levels on later releases, but smack in the middle of Chaos A.D. it makes for a perfect break.
"Propaganda" and "Biotech Is Godzilla" are a sonic punch in the nethers after the relative ease of "Kaiowas", and from here on the metal never lets up. Still, the variation continues, with the straightforward "Nomad" counterbalanced by the slow-burning "We Who Are Not As Others". "Manifest" for me represents the high point of the album, a song that is essentially an instrumental with some lyrics thrown in as an afterthought. The way it progresses is exemplary of how the band evolved from their fun but dead-ended thrash metal days.Read more ›
