Sepultura - Morbid Visions / Bestial Devastation
First Canadian Columbia House Printing, 1991 Roadrunner/Attic Records
I'll never forget the first time I heard this. It was 1994 and I was spinning Chaos AD and Arise pretty regularly. This was one of the "12 CD's for a Penny" deals from Columbia House. I opened the box and put this on and thought.........WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS!? Compared to the Sepultura I was used to, this wasn't good. At the time I thought it just sounded shitty. The thing with Sepultura is that every album with Max was better than the last(Although I do like Chaos AD better than Roots personally). So when you jump to their first release....it was just so different. I didn't relisten to it for 25 years. I am currently reading Max Cavalera's autobiography and reading his stories about Sepultura's early days and it made me revisit this CD. And you know what? It's not bad, in fact, there are some really cool songs. Of course Troops of Doom rules, but there are plenty of other good tracks. And the production isn't as bad as I thought. Truth be told, it's really not much worse than early Metal Blade-era Slayer. One of the most interesting things about Sepultura was how much they evolved on every release. For people like me who came of age in the early 90's, Seputura is a very important band. Metallica and Megadeth were huge, but they were already huge. Sepultura, Pantera and Machine Head, they were ours. They were new and exciting, and for Sepultura, it all started here. Worth checking out.
