6. Sepultura – Beneath The Remains (1989)
Brutal yet catchy in equal measure, thrash metal and death metal collided to thrilling effect on Sepultura’s 3rd full length album.
Produced by renowned death metal producer Scott Burns (Obituary, Death, Morbid Angel) it was evident, when compared to their previous releases, that a monumental leap forward in Sepultura’s musicianship and composition skills had occurred.
A brutal indictment of growing up in the favelas of Brazil, the ‘Seps’ harnessed their experiences and produced a visceral, primitive sound; bringing world music to the thrash scene and setting themselves up as one of extreme metal’s finest ever bands.
Beneath The Remains always was and always will be the real fuckin’ deal and it’s game-changing influence should never be under-estimated.
Stronger than hate, indeed!
