Saturday Song to Do Bong Rips To

Metalsucks did a good job today, but my girlfriend is gone for the weekend so here is another song to get ripped to.
We all know and love Sepultura with or without Derek Green and I celebrate the majority of the Sepultura discography. I got into them when I was a young teenager and was absolutely floored by what I heard (and saw, the artwork for early Sepultura is AMAZING) on the Beneath the Remains and Arise albums. Max Cavalera used to be one angry, abrasive mother fucker. His lyrics dripped with vehement candor from the shrapnel of his aching, throaty vocals while the music itself is a hash of proto-every extreme metal genre. There is sloppy filler here and there, but that's allows live shows to shine. Sepultura originally broke up in 96 when I was only 8 so I never got to see them, but I did buy a copy of Under A Pale Grey Sky and got mind fucked again. It's a two disc CD containing the last show they ever played with Max in December, 16 1996 in London. Strife played with them, and that would be awesome to see, but I digress. This album has songs from their entire catalogue (up to that point), but every song is done better than on the record. It's always faster, more aggressive and has a better effect. My personal favourite is the Arise/Dead Embryonic Cells medley. I also put the Cro-Mags cover for the sweet pit call out and the Beneath the Remains/Mass Hypnosis medley on here too (in no order).

Hate throughout the arteries, Mass Hypnosis. Believers kneeling over their sins. Inhuman instinct of cowardly leaders make the world go their own way. Tens of thousands hypnotized trying to find a reason why.
