Sarcofago improves greatly on this album compared to their debut album INRI. Everything on this album is better than their first, especially musical variety and not using all the gimmicks of their first album. There are occasionally times when the album sounds a lot like Sepultura, which is OK, but for the most part it had a good original sound that was mostly in the Death/Thrash Metal genre; there is little to virtually no Black Metal on the album.
It's interesting how much different this is from their classy 1987 debut, INRI. While the
music is not really the same anymore, changing from primitive (but so good) black/death fury
into very refined tech-death (sort of). Though one shall not expect boring, incomprehensible
wankfest, but a handful of VERY well written songs. Yes, songs; not only single solos or
drum beats, but the music as a whole is almost perfectly executed. Imagine combining Death's
Human and INRI, that's roughly what you'll get: the sheer brutality and aggression of INRI
plus the mystical atmosphere of Human. Yeah!
y is this no higher than 4.1??? cmon this is the shit guys
This record stands out from any other Sarcofago's releases..matured lyrical themes, amazingly complex time signatures, precisely written basslines, perfect production, mind-blowing guitar solos and a lot more ....this is suggested to all Extreme Black-thrash-death-technical metal fans.
