  • Summary: The first release in three years from the Brazilian heavy metal band, which is fronted for the second time out by new vocalist Derrick Green.

  1. A magnificent return to the band's brutal, almost hardcore punkish, roots.
  2. Green's heightened tunefulness along with the broadened emotional resonance that results should enable this band to relate more to an enlarged fanbase... [#154, p.63]
  3. 70
    Though not as stellar as such past Max-era classics as Chaos A.D. or Roots, Nation is another worthy set of brutally dense, hardcore-tinged metal.
  4. Contains a clutch of crowd-pleasingly brutal anthems...
  5. A series of hard-rockin', tight tunes...
  6. 'Nation' is not bad - it's taut and tense and if you buy it quick you'll get to hear their logic-defying cover of Bauhaus' 'Bela Lugosi's Dead'. But it's hard to reconcile 'Nation''s obsession with the scourge of globalisation with Sepultura's conversion from third world pioneers to just another angry hardcore band.
