Cavalera Conspiracy - Psychosis (Napalm Records) 2017
For better or worse, Sepultura were one of the most innovative and surprising metal bands of the late 80’s and 90’s, brothers Igor and Max Cavalera were and still are a key and influential part of what today’s heavy music stands for. Igor and Max return with Psychosis, Cavalera Conspiracy’s fourth installment and for sure their most strong, diverse and crushing album ever; the riffs are sick and ultra-fast, full of the good old 80’s thrash and death metal. It’s an irresistible headbanging affair with that Nail Bomb industrial touch. Featuring top notch guest appearances including Godflesh’s Justin Broadrick, Cold Cave’s Dominick Fernow and Eternal Champion’s Jason Tarpey, it’s fair to say that Psychosis is a masterful album, undeniably fresh, strangely weird and full of contemporary methods of sonic brutalization.
