Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the most successful Brazilian Metal band of all time. Kairos, produced by Roy Z, is a more brutal, old-school approach to the classic Sepultura sound that fans will at once recognize and embrace. From Brazil's third-largest city, Belo Horizonte, Sepultura (meaning 'grave' in their native Portuguese) were formed amongst political turmoil, giving their sound and message the political awareness and sharp social critique that many Rock, Rap and Metal bands later embraced.

I was one of the fans who struggled with the changes after Max left Sepultura. I could not handle the vocals, production and music at the beginning. I can now listen to those early Derrick Green albums and appreciate them years later. Well it has been 15 years since Derrick Green replaced Max on vocals. I think the transition would have been much smoother at the time if this album followed up "Roots" back in 1998 rather than "Against." This album is the most even release of the Derrick Green era. His vocals sound more focused and "fit" the music better than ever. Roy Z did a fantastic job with the production and especially on Derrick's vocals and the drums. He has really helped Sepultura sound "cohesive" again. The music is thick and heavy throughout. I won't break down each song and give a rating but here are a few highlights: the title track "Kairos" is very chunky and heavy. This song could have easily been on Chaos A.D. Derrick's vocals really shine on this track and is my favorite so far. "Relentless" has some crushing drums and great double bass from Jean Dolabella and sounds like it could come from the "Arise" album. Andreas Kisser's solos on "Relentless" are solid and really enhance the feel of the song. As for "Just One Fix" which is a Ministry cover, it is a faithful remake and sounds killer - fits the feel of the album perfectly. Overall this album is solid, focused, well produced and most importantly it has great song writing. If you are an old fan, give this album a try. I would highly recommend this album to old fans as well as new fans. I liked the last record "A-Lex" but this just blows it away. Good to see Nuclear Blast pick up this band and give them another solid chance. Pick this up, you will not be disappointed.

Been a fan of Sepultura since Beneath The Remains.Been a fan of ALL of their albums,with Max Cavalera and with Derrick Green.This album is a great listen from spectrum to point of no return (deluxe edition).All the songs have a groove to them that make them catchy and heavy at the same time.Andreas Kisser's guitar work is awesome as usual,Derrick Green's vocals are stellar -every song he brings something different. Paulo Jr's basswork is solid and Jean Dolabella's Drumwork is great. Many of the song's have an Arise or Beneath/Remains vibe to them especially in the guitar solo's.A lot of the songs sound like they were out of the Chaos A.D. era. The song "No One Will Stand" is their fastest and most aggressive since the Arise album. Great Album- hopefully their next will incorporate more of the Beneath and Arise era's.Also hope this album silences many of the critic's since Max and Igor left the band.It's unfair that these guys always get the backlash.Chris Barnes left Cannibal Corpse many years ago along with Jack Owen years later and the Corpse are still putting out Awesome album after album. Kairos- Solid Album from start to finish.

Sepultura hasn't let us down yet...Their new one keeps the madness in overdrive! They really hit it on the head this time. I haven't been able to pick one song over the rest...They all pack the punch we all have waited this long for...Enjoy at maximum volume...

I like to think of Sepultura as 2 different bands. There is classic Sepultura with Max Cavalera, and then there is Sepultura 2.0 with Derrick Green. It's not fair in my mind to compare this album with the Max albums because they are just such a different band. So I won't. Instead, I'll compare this album to everything Derrick Green has been on. That being said, I think that this is the best albums they have produced since he arrived. Focused songs, unique guitar solos and song arrangements, tight drumming, and simpler/thrashier riffs. There are quite a few riffs on here that could have come straight off of Arise (like the breakdown in Kairos), but they still sound modern and are played in the Sepultura 2.0 fashion. I was a bit skeptical of the Ministry and Prodigy covers, mainly because I'm not a big fan of either band or the songs, but Sepultura did a great job on them and I like them quite a bit.

Overall, if you like Sepultura's prior output with Derrick Green then you will definitely like this disc. If you haven't been a fan since Max left, this album probably won't win you over but you should give it a chance because these guys are great.

I really enjoyed this album,i heard it when my buddy had it on in his car but i picked up the cd/dvd edition with 2 extra songs(Prodigy-Firestarter)& Point of No Return(hidden song) and dvd footage of them all in the studio and discussing things. The album starts with Spectrum and man is it solid & heavy,just a hint of what's to come it's got solid guitar and heavy bass,blistering drums and Derrick's voice is superb(on the entire album they're all super) Kairos with wicked aggressive lyrics and drums,Relentless is just as the song says it is,the vocals & guitar really shine as does drum and bass. Then there are 4 tracks they don't mention but they are between every 3 songs,as it shows in numbers on the cd case but amazon did not put it up. There all 30 second interludes of chattering and what sounds like bongos. Like i said i heard it when it first came out but now i got my copy playing through 4 150watt speakera in all corners of my room. The next track is Ministry cover of Just 1 Fix and i think this version is waaayyyy better than Al's version. The vocals are sick as is the guitar and bass it just chuggs along. Dialog is 1 of my favorite songs,the guitar riff and Derricks voice are just insane as are the drums. I cannot emphesize how heavy and addictive the song is. That is followed by another favorite of mine which is Mask,wicked lyrics and thick basslines mixed with Andreas guitar riffs it is sick. After another 30 second interlude Seethe kicks in and it holds it's weight with the others as it has killer drums and guitar especially the solos. Born Strong is another 1 of my top favorites on this cd,the vocals & lyrics are so dead on to how i as i am sure alot of you(us the metallers) feel and understand.Read more ›
