Yes, the sound is still Sepultura. And it is still great! The departure of Max Cavalera and his replacement by a guy called Derrick (no, it's true) seemed to go without a hitch, so much so that a previous reviewer thought that Max still sung on this album! And he says he is a fan. Oh well. Not as intense as Roots (could it be?) but a good first album with a new line-up. After Max went to do his own stuff we were all worried that the Seps would lose something. They did, perhaps, but not until Roorback.
