So how would you compare "Dark Ages" to earlier Sepultura albums? Like "Arise"? Or "Beneath The Remains"? I've heard one song from the Roadrunner CD sampler but still I'm pretty skeptic now.Jr-V said:YWell, if u like the way sepultura play during the earlier releases with max, the Soulfly Dark Ages is a must have.
subversion said:FYI- Sepultura was in the same recording studio with Korn when they recorded the ROOTS release, listen carefully & you'll hear tonal similarities between Korn's debut & the aforementioned album- they shared amps & pedals. 8)
vernplum said:As a semi-interesting footnote, the recording of Beneath The Remains was engineered and produced by a certain Scott Burns, who had as much to do with the success of Sepultura's killer sound as the songwriting, attitude and performance of the band. Scott was a major presence on the early death metal scene and IMHO produced some of the genre's finest moments, never matched since.
Same sentiments exactly. With "Chaos A.D.", the tribal influences although is there, are still not as "in-your-face". In fact, I can totally enjoy "Chaos A.D." til today and it was in fact the album that got me interested in the band. However, with "Roots", the influences heard are definitely more obvious. And plus the Korn-influence was definitely a major turn-off for me at that point.judaspiss said:With Roots, you can see Korn's influence infiltrating their music at the time, what more with Ross Robinson as producer and I'm also not really a fan of excessive percussive/tribal influences with metal.
I love their music... but somehow some of the way-too-simple lyrics just sorta got lost on me most of time! Maybe it's becuz the English language was never their 1st language back home when they just started out.judaspiss said:I've never really been a huge fan of Sepultura and I'm not sure why.
