Sepultura - Beneath The Remains (1989) Retail CD
Thrash metal was born in the early 80's and in my opinion had effectively died as a genre in metal by the mid to late 90's. Whilst some of the major bands in the genre continue to produce albums (Slayer are one act continuing to fly the flag with some level of credibility remaining) the music has become diluted with other influeces. But it is worth remembering the key acts and albums that shaped the music. And that is where Sepultura's Beneath the Remains belongs.Thrash metal was defined by what were termed the 'big four' of Anthrax, Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer and rightly so. That is not tomore… undermine other legendary bands of the time who were so influential (Testament,Exodus,Overkill, Suicidal Tendancies etc,)Beneath the Remains must be compared to classics such as Anthrax-Among the Living (87)Persistance of Time (90),Metallica-Master of Puppets (86) And Justice for All (88),Megadeth-Peace Sells but who's Buying (86)Rust in Peace (90)and Slayer-Reign in Blood (86) and Seasons in the Abyss (90).Then in 1989 and 1990 two bands emerged which threatened to make the 'big four' into a big six! Those bands were Pantera and Sepultura. But in reality these two acts strenghtened the genre and added a new but still extemely heavy sound to the music whilst still encapsulating the riffing and rhytms of thrash. Pantera had a number of what could only be termed 'heavy rock' albums in the 80's (best avoided) but it was Cowboys from Hell (90) that established them as a new force in the music. Sepultura had also relesed some minor label albums in the ealy to mid 80's but it was Beneath the Remains (89) which confirmed their status in terms of classic thrash albums.To the album? Well, it remains their fastest and heaviest work and is probably the closest thrash came to touching on the ferocity of its close cousin death metal. While it may not be their best album, Arise (91) and Chaos A.D. (93) are superior efforts,the musicianship and innovation that was shown in the songs thrust Sepultura into the mainstream of the metal scene. All in all, if you are a metal music fan and dont have this album, your collection is definitely not complete. A classic.
