With the anthemic call-to-arms opening track of their fifth album, 1993’s Chaos A.D., here is Sepultura.
Watch the official video for “Refuse/Resist” here below.
Hailing from Brazil and led by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, the band broke new ground and paved the way for many bands that would follow in their footsteps. AllMusic declared Chaos A.D. one of the best heavy metal albums of all time, calling it “a remarkable achievement not only in its concentrated power and originality, but also in the degree to which Sepultura eclipsed their idols in offering a vision of heavy metal’s future.” To me, the same could be said of each and every one of the first six albums that the band issued.
Still no word on a release date, but at least Machine Head has finally given us the title and artwork for their highly anticipated new album. The follow-up to their 2011 monster hit Unto The Locust is to be titled Bloodstone and Diamonds.
The album will be the first to feature new bassist Jared MacEachern. The band split very publicly and acrimoniously with founding bassist Adam Duce and have been embroiled in a nasty lawsuit with him that was recently settled out of court on undisclosed terms.
Slipknot has just premiered the song “The Negative One,” the first single from their highly anticipated and as yet untitled fifth album. The song can only be unlocked by registering at the band’s official site.
The track is super heavy and in the vein of Iowa or Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses. Plus, we finally know what the cryptic phrases that the band have been teasing refer to: “The Prescient/The Nascent/The Quotient/The Cystic/Symbolic/Condition/Egregious/Replete With/These Lesions/Succumb to/The Selfish/Creation” are all lyrics in the song.
