Guest review by
Mid and late '80s were the best times for thrash metal. Most of bands like Slayer, Metallica or Megadeth recorded their best albums then. It was golden times for thrash metal. Among the best there was a Brazilian band called: Sepultura (which means: grave). One of the most important thrash bands.

All Sepultura's album from "Schizophrenia" to "Chaos A.D." are great. They play great, fast and brutal although simple music. Max Cavalera was great as leader of the group. He influenced the rest of the band to do their best. "Beneath The Remains" is their second fastest album after "Arise". It feels like travelling at the speed of light. Whole album is filled with simple but already classical riffs (just look at "Inner Self" and "Mass Hypnosis").

Theres no point in keeping up with this conversation, since you pretty much raised the bar saying Kreator is Death/Thrash. Also, Accept being Teutonic Thrash, that was good as well.

Plus the fact he said Morbid Angel where you mentioned Morbid Saint and him saying Morbid Angel were considered death metal + grindcore when in fact not a single soul at the time considered them to have anything to do with grindcore.

Totally missed that one. I guess I lost my shit at the "Entombed music isnt fast at all" part.

A good choice for my favourite Thrash Album of all time. Perfect on every Level, Sepulturas definitive hour.

Agree with you - for me this is the best release by Sepultura.

I agree whit it, never was fan of later material , band is in list to not see live even they will play old songs , I stop following this band
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!

Probably my favorite guitar tone ever, def. my favourite guitar tone in thrash-metal. It sounds so grainy and tasty. Great songwritting as well, and Max Cavalera at his finest.

Wow just listened to this album for the first time in ages and forgot how intense it is! I love the feel of this album; the lyrics and vocal delivery have a real adolescent angst to them yet the song structures are very mature and complex. Overall the album just has a really gritty, dark tone to it which I love! Definitely one of my all time faves, perfect album in my eyes.
