  Well i like Sepultura,better to say i love them but this beggining is not quite good for me.

  A good thrash album. The next one will be epic!

  Its a good debut and it shows their talent to come in the future. The main problem in this album is probably the hilarious production.

Rating: 8 I loved this album. It's sooo brutal, and Max's voice sounded a lot better in this album! The only problem I found here was the shitty production.

My rating: 8.2

Rating: 8 Okay, the production on this one is definitely a bit shoddy, but musically, there's very much to enjoy on this one! Sepultura were described by some as a death/thrash band when they were in their prime, although this (plus the preceding split album "Bestial Devestation") album is really the only one in their discography that has strong elements of death metal in it. And there's certainly a hint of black metal in this one too.

If you can get past the production, there are some real underrated gems to be found on this album, such as the title track, "Empire Of The Damned", and my personal fave "War". On a final, amusing note about this album, I forever remember being creeped out by the ending to "Empire Of The Damned" when I was a kid. lol

Yep, well... I was a naive 14 year old, hoodwinked by the UK and US metal press. I have learned over the ensuing years though that they were wrong about a lot of things metal related...

  How is this not death thrash? It's Celtic Frost/Sarcofago sounding as heck to me. Would black thrash be a better term? I'm not amused by subdividing metal genres in the least bit, but to say this is pure thrash seems absurd to me.

edit- if it's not death thrash or black thrash, then the genre ceases to exist

I'm not sure why people staunchly defend this album as a purely thrash release.

Rating: 5 Never liked this one (or indeed any pre-BTR Sepultura).

This album clearly has death metal elements, and even a hint of black in there too. I can definitely see it being arguable that "Beneath The Remains" and "Arise" are pure thrash releases, but I don't know why anyone would deny that death metal elements are present on this album, when to me it should be obvious to anyone with functioning ears.

When it came out, those genres didn't really exist in any sort of defined way.

Even Possessed's Seven Churches was very Thrashy.

It's kinda like the whole "Black Sabbath are Doom Metal" argument.
