Time flies really fast. Sometimes it’s hard to realize it. Let me give you an example. Derrick Green has been the singer of Sepultura for more years than Max Cavalera. I don’t know about you but that thought made me feel old.
The Cavalera Brothers of course do not need any introduction. They’ve been in the game for many years now and they have produced some classic albums. In 2007 they formed Cavalera Conspiracy. ”Psychosis” is the band’s fourth album. It was released on the 17th of November through Napalm Records.
Produced by Arthur Rizk, ”Psychosis” Lp includes nine tracks. In my opinion the Cavalera Conspiracy albums, plus the post ”Conquer” Soulfly albums mark what i would call ”a return to the roots”. ”Psychosis” is really heavy and fast as well but it includes considerable amounts of groove. In my opinion it is the outcome of a long procedure. It is an album that will make you travel back in time, when Sepultura released ”Beneath the Remains”. Nevertheless this album draws inspiration also from Nailbomb and albums like ”Chaos A.D” for example. ”Hellfire” was a surprise for me. I think that Justin Broadrick killed it. I think thought most tracks of this album kill. I’m talking about tracks like ”Insane”, ”Terror Tactics”, ”Crom” and of course ”Hellfire”. Is this the best Cavalera Conspiracy album so far? I think it is.
In ”Psychosis” the Cavalera Bros accomplish something important. They do not sound like the bands they influenced. ”Psychosis” is a 30 year old course distilled into an album. It is a really good album therefore it is highly recommended. Here’s a link where you can listen to ”Psychosis”:
