Errmmm, I really like this track I used Metallica as a example, could have easily gone with Megadeth or Slayer as similar examples (Slayer would have probably been better). I think Sepultura kept it real when other were (imho) fading a bit. ,Even when a few guys went off on side projects (Hattip for Soulfly).
It's subjective for sure - Load wasn't terrible, I just didn't get into it like I did the other albums. There was one track I went and learned some riffs from - but unlike other where I had to (try) learn at two or three riffs, on Load there was but one.
ScottyDogg strong producer like a Bob Rock (just not the current has been Bob Rock lol) to kick Lars and James in the ass and get their best out of them
+100 - think you need to get in there! Or maybe get Rick Rubin in as supersub...Was Load a 'good enough' effort - good enough for release, but not great enough to be remembered?
ScottyDogg definitely check out Rabea Massaad’s music
From watching too much Anderton's I'm a Rabea fan - I like how he thinks about gear and approaches music.
Hadn't paid much attention to Toska, had a long listen today - it's good, WAY better than Dorje (I'm not a fan of Chapper's playing, to me it's widdly-widdly sameness). Though still a bit 'math metal' for me (I was in prog djent band for a while, so I think I can use the term ) - but grooves are solid and Rabea's tones are something to to appreciate, they're really good.
