Of course any favorite Sepultura is Sepultura that still has Max and Igor in the band. Sorry guys, but they were Sepultura.
“Inner Self” is one of those songs that I prefer a live version over the album version. I had a copy of their “Live in Barcelona” VHS, and I cannot listen to the song without hearing in my head Max’s command to Barcelona to “destroy dis fucking place”.
Certainly “Arise” was a breakthrough album for them.
But the crazy thing is… while I don’t like the whole album, I love “Roots Bloody Roots”. The rhythm, the primal screaming, the groove. I mean, play this song live and watch the crowd go into a frenzy. It’s just that kind of song.
