is Sepultura’s ninth studio album and also the third one to feature
the vocals of Derrick Green as the very fitting replacement for Max
Cavelera. He has been a more than worthy replacement since Max left the
band in 1996 to form Soulfly.
‘Roorback’ – it’s name taken from the American term for ‘a
slanderous story used for political gain’, will have many Sepultura
fans approval as with their album before, the band are not afraid to
experiment and bring new ideas into the fore.
Roorback is still very much a full throttle metal album that
steamrollers its way through your senses. Sepultura may not be
everyone’s cup of tea, but these Brazilian hardcore metallers have
made their mark on the music industry with the sound that is Sepultura.
This latest album will have them moshing in the aisles as they did at
three totally sold out gigs in London’s prestigious Underworld club
earlier this year.
A limited edition will be released as a double digit-pack with a bonus
disc called ‘Revolusongs’. The EP will contain cover versions of
Hell Hammers ‘Messiah’, Steel Attack’s ‘Angel’, Public
Enemy’s ‘Black Steel’, Jane’s addition’s ‘Mountain Song’,
Devo’s all time classic ‘Mongoloid’, U2’s ‘Bullet The Blue
Sky’ (that also will appear as an enhanced video track on the EP), and
lastly Exodus’s ‘Piranha’. Showing again the diversity of the band
and the way in which they tackle their music.
