    Certainly not another Chaos AD, Sepultura is still miles above most bands trying to lamely mix hardcore and metal. Previous reviewer is confused: Igor is still on the drums, always has been. Max, the OG singer, is missed, but not much: Derrick's "screaming range" is wider in my opinion, with some nice growls and even slightly singing some bits. The vocal production seems a little Certainly not another Chaos AD, Sepultura is still miles above most bands trying to lamely mix hardcore and metal.

The vocal production seems a little lacking, but the emotion is there and the band is more together than on Against. They've still got a message. Expand

    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.
  2. '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.
  3. A magnificent return to the band's brutal, almost hardcore punkish, roots.
