Album Review: Sepultura "Chaos AD"

The Boys from Brazil are well established in the thrash camp, but they're not afraid of experimenting. Even on their heaviest tracks, they sometimes blend in Brazilian tribal rhythms, as on the stark instrumental Kaiowas.

They write serious, informed lyrics about lands being torn asunder by war, greed, and corruption. Biotech is Godzilla will appeal to those who like it dark and brutally fast, and the lyrics, written by Dead Kennedy's Jello Biafra, warn about the consequences of bio-technology in the wrong hands. Sepultura could arguably claim the throne of thinking man's thrash band.
