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.
