2.0 poorBlurry | October 10th 07

What the fuck? Few bands have hit such heights and fallen so far as Sepultura. Having weathered the loss of Max Cavalera quite well, (Against wasn't really that much worse than Roots) the band hit the wall rather spectacularly here, with an album that was simply painful for long term fans. The album has two types of tracks (hardcore-oriented & tribal groove oriented) which it alternates between through the album's duration with little regard for the ebb and the flow of the disc. Derrick Green can't be blamed, as his performance is one of the better aspects of this album, so where does it go wrong? Simple, Andreas Kisser is not that good of a songwriter. Back in the day, Max Cavalera wrote the core of the material, and Andreas spiced up his ideas with some tasty leadwork, but he seems incapable of bearing the entire songwriting burden alone. A guest appearance by Jello Biafra on Politricks helps break the monotony, but the best track, rather worryingly, is one that the band doesn't really perform on. It's the outro, Valtio, which is performed by Finnish string quartet, Apocalyptica, with the band adding some bare tribal drum acompaniment. Unfortunate.

The worst most groove infested rubbish this band could have eever put out *shudders at the memory*. how did the band that was so good go this terrible?

1.5 very poorRed Cap Brain | June 21st 06

After Max Cavalera(former singer and guitarist) left Sepultura they changed theyīre musical direction and lost popularity with it until Dante XXI. Nation is one of three albums they wrote between Roots(last album with Cavalera) and Dante XXI.

Nation is a very diversified record so you canīt put it into a special genre but the most people consider it as hardcoremetal what they play here.

Nation is very Soulfly-oriented and it contains a lot of brasilian influences. The songs are slower than their in their past. The record doesnīt sound uninspired but the slow tempo makes it a bit boring to listen. Thatīs what the record makes so average, the lowness of energy, but it still contains some good songs. I would say Vox Populi and Sepulnation are the best tracks on Nation.

Recommended Tracks:

Sepulnation
Border Wars
Vox Populi
Uma Cura
Water
