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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Silencing their critics witth "Kairos" July 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Statement. July 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of Sepultura 2.0 September 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blew me Away ! August 4, 2011
By MK
Format:Audio CD
I got to admit after Sepultura's last couple of albums I was still not a fan but !!! This album is the Album Derrick Green had to make to fill his spot for Max.

Andreas Has brilliant scorching solos and this is a return to form of Sepultura with fantastic Drumming too since Max Took flight !!!

The opening track is enigmatic of both the roots album and song war for territory riff !

Great Album, cant wait for their next one ......

5.0 out of 5 stars Kairos April 20, 2012
By Mike
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Just got into listening to Sepultura after hearing Kairos on XM and this album is great. You won't regret buying this album at all and will find yourself listening to it over and over. Now to get some of the back catalog stuff. Seem to like the sound of the post Max offerings myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally October 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
So for the better part of a decade since Max left, the new Sepultura has been sucking me in and screwing me over every new release. Against I purchased under the assumption Max was still in the band, and I kept thinking wow, he sounds different, how embarrassing. Since than i've promised myself no more, its not the same band, but every time they release a song that really impresses me and i get sucked in and buy it, the last one i bought was Dante, and seriously I contemplated having my head examined. I stuck to my promise since, that is until Kairos came out. The reviews had me intrigued, and FINALLY, I got something that tells me Max is no longer needed. Kairos is hard, edgy, and focused, Im really glad they decided to skip with the tribal drum sessions, cause that got irritating every other track. If your like me and been waiting for Sepultura to make a really good one, I assure you your wait is over, dive in my friend, this one will not disappoint.
