맥스 카발레라의 비중이 얼마나 컸었는지 96년에 새로 들어온 흑인보컬 데릭 그린의 노래는 별로 감흥이 없다.
level   (70/100)
미안하다. 열심히 듣지 않았다. 노래 중에 기억나는 것도 없다.
level   (75/100)
평점이 너무 터무니없이 낮다 확실히 지루하기 짝이 없는 앨범이긴 하지만 특유의 분의기가 마음에 든다 이정도로 똥반 취급받을 만한 앨범은 아닌듯 평작 수준
level   (50/100)
이전의 그 세풀투라는 대체 어디갔는가? 민망하기 그지없다.
level   (85/100)
잘 만든 앨범이다. 내 귀가 문제가 있는건진 모르겠다만 난 그렇게 느꼈다.
level   (40/100)
....이건 아니다
level   (50/100)
더이상 Sepultura라는 타이틀을 달기에 부끄러운 수준이다. 괜찮은 트랙 하나 건질수 없었다.
level   (50/100)
진심으로 하는 말인데 내가 작곡을 해도 이런 찌레기보단 낫겠다.
level   (45/100)
Andras Kisser혼자 무얼 할 수 있겠는가?
level   (50/100)
하도 이제는 다르다, 카발레라 형제들의 그림자에서 벗어났다 해대길래 들었지만.. 솔직히 기대도 안했다.
level   (55/100)
pokračujú v smere priemerných, nudných a nezaujímavých albumov. slabý spev, monotónne, jedine gitary sú oniečo lepšie. 1 dobrá pieseň: Grief
