Limited edition 180 gram vinyl LP pressing of the Brazilian metal band's 1991 album. Nine tracks including 'Dead Embryonic Cells', 'Murder', 'Infected Voice' and more. Roadrunner.
In their previous seven years' existence Sepultura had steadily established themselves as Brazil's premier metal outfit, but it wasn't until 1991's breakthrough album Arise that they truly captured the hearts and minds of the international rock mainstream. Subsequently re-released with the addition of four bonus tracks--including the band's monumental annihilation of Motorhead's "Orgasmatron"--Arise highlights Sepultura's irrefutable stylistic kinship to Metallica. The harmonic interplay between Max Cavalera's rock-solid rhythm work and Andreas Kisser's lead lines--on occasions the six stringed equivalent of a fully-throttled dentist's drill--is devastating. Max's tortured vocal, meanwhile, absolutely refuses to take prisoners while brother Igor's rhythmic battery is sheer, unfettered aggression. Moments of restraint, as on the quite astonishing "Altered State", merely accentuate the band's trademark brutality. Even with historical perspective, Arise retains its original ignominious appeal; an essential purchase. --Ian Fortnam

Though I still consider this a classic thrash album, this isn't quite a fully traditional work. Sepultura is generally classified as death-thrash, as it is generally heavier and more frequently detuned and bottom heavy than straight thrash, with much harsher vocals as well. Speaking of which, Max gives a truly killer performance here, full of rage and power with out overdoing it. He's particularly strong on the Motorhead cover, Orgasmatron. Igor gives a rather straight forward, but still remarkably pummeling and impressive performance on the drums, which provides an outstanding base for the grinding but still lightning fast rhythm work. Surprisingly, despite the intensity and general lack of melody, the work here is frequently somewhat catchy, with most of the tracks having a memorable vocal line, which generally found in the chorus. Many excellent metal albums blur by with out leaving a real impression on the first listen. Not so for Arise. Not to imply that this is an overly simplistic and thus quickly forgotten work. Tracks like Desperate Cry and Altered State are lengthy and complex and demand attention. Still this isn't, overall, nearly as complex as latter era Metallica or Death, which I feel can be a good thing, sometimes. As much as enjoy the progressive elements, the straight-up raging intensity of tracks like Murder, Arise and Infected Voice is refreshing. Aside from the aforementioned tracks there are still a number of medium length tracks which smoothly alternate from relatively slow, behemoth riffs to staccato Slayer-esque speed.Read more ›
As I said, this album represents the old Sepultura, and it builds upon what they did in Beneath the Remains, for instance. The songs are fast and furious, and they follow an easily discernible thrash format with lots of technical profiency. The production quality is one of the best I've ever encountered in a metal album, with tight and mighty, yet surprisingly clear distorted guitar sounds, bright leads, and a superbly miked drumset. Listen to the double bass at the end of Desperate Cry with the volume knob cranked way up, and I swear you'll feel like there's an earthquake going on and your house is gonna crumble.
In my mind, Sepultura was one of the most important bands of metal in the late eighties and early nineties, and this particular work is a must for fans of this type of music. You won't regret getting this CD. It's worth your money and your time.
