Long time metal veterans Sepultura who need no introduction team up with French industrial percussion group Les Tambours Du Bronx and this is a review of their 2014 live album "Metal Veins-Alive At Rock In Rio" which will be release d in September by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
Tribal style drumming and industrial sounds start off the album and a few seconds later powerful sounding bass guitars kick in and after the intro the music starts going more into the extreme metal style that Sepultura are known for while still keeping the percussion's and industrial elements along with some aggressive vocals that lean towards hardcore while still having a death metal edge to them.
While I have not listen to that band much after 1996 I can hear more groove and nu metal in their sound than what i can remember and the solos and leads the band uses are very dark and melodic sounding and as the album progresses you can hear more punk rock style energy being added into their musical sound and after awhile acoustic guitars are brought in briefly along with a cover of Prodigy's "Firestarter" before returning back to t heir later songs.
Sepultura do mostly their mid 90's to early 2000 songs and add more percussion and industrial elements which adds more variety to their musical sound, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover political themes.
In my opinion this is another decent sounding recording from Sepultura and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this live album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Refuse/Resist" "Fever" "Territory" and "Roots bloody Roots". 7/5 out of 10.
