Cavalera Conspiracy: Inflikted
Modern Groove/Death/Progressive Metal
Rating: 2.0/5.0

I don't know how Cavalera Conspiracy got in my review stack. Maybe a friend recommended it or maybe I simply saw that it was the reunion of Cavalera brothers (Max (Soulfly, ex-Sepultura) on vocals and rhythm guitar and Igor (Mixhell, ex-Sepultura) on drums). Frankly, I never liked Sepultura; and this form of metal, often called groove metal mixed with death metal (look it up in Wikipedia), is not something that I would review for dangerdog or even listen to. But, because it was recommended to me, I decided to give it a listen to.

Honestly, as far as I'm concerned 'Inflikted' is nearly horrible, pure thrash, nu-metal crap. The vocals are almost pure dirty vocals. And they have some rap vocals, too. I hate rap. Except for some exceptional guitar work, this work is almost disgusting. Profane and foul lyrics abound throughout this album. I don't need to hear the f-bomb on every song. A certain waste of time: profanity is for those who do not have a command of language. Melody is barely noticeable in the arrangements because it is overrun by explosive and unredeemable music. I guess, in their circles, 'Infliketed' would be considered profound and creative music. For this reason, I will give it praise. But for me and this web site, it is a waste of time.

In Short

I reviewed this album because it was recommended to me. Cavalera Conspiracy reunites brothers Max and Igor (Sepultura) for a new venture. This is not something for melodic rock or metal fans. Frankly, it's nu-metal crap. Even with the exceptional guitar work of Marc Rizzo (Soulfly), the work is barely listenable and borders on horrible. It's only for fans of this deliquent genre.

England's Seven had a bottle rocket-like existence between 1989 and 1990, spinning two singles in the latter year and performing with the likes of Richard Marx. Then they were gone. But some remembered them ... [ Read More ]
