Sepultura – Under A Pale Grey Sky – CD Review

This is simply stellar—a 2 disc, pristine live opus of Sepultura during the Max Cavalera years.  Titled “Under A Pale Grey Sky” [Roadrunner Records], it features most of the Brazilian act’s best cuts.  And the sound quality is superb.

Sepultura’s style is an exceptional type of Tribal Deathrash Metal.  Max’s vocals are a powerful, defining quality of the Sep sound…the thunderous growl of which shakes the very heavens.  This aspect, plus the wildfire guitar genius of Andreas Kisser and the tribal rhythms, are critical reasons why Sepultura is so exceptional.

There are 28 tracks in total.  The most killer of these include “Arise/Dead Embryonic Cells,” the insane “Ratamahatta,” “Necromancer,” “Beneath The Remains/Mass Hypnosis,” “Territory,” the classic “Troops Of Doom,” “Roots Bloody Roots,” “Policia,” “Refuse/Resist,” “Inner Self,” as well as their brilliant cover of Motorhead’s “Orgasmatron.”

Overall, this is an amazing and epic live release by the mighty Sepultura.  One of the best releases of the year, easily.  Stay savage.  Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
