I am a Sepultura fan, and I like "Chaos A.D." and "Roots" the best (the early stuff rules as well), but when Max Cavalera left the band in 1996 and Derrick Green took over for vocals, the CD's have been extremely disappointing. "Against" is the one I like the best, but I couldn't get into "Nation" or "Roorback".

I purchased this about a year ago, as I wanted to listen to some newer Sepultura and this album wasn't available on Napster. I was really disappointed. "Come Back Alive" is a decent opener, but it tends to trail on like this on most of the tracks. "Mind War" was a decent track, but it never caught my attention. However, I liked the U2 cover of "Bullet The Blue Sky", even though I hate U2 with a passion. But the outcome is that it is easy to forget this CD. If you must buy it, buy it used, like bloodlust 69 recommended. Just be glad that this isn't as disappointing as (*cough* St. *cough* Anguish *cough*).

Sepultura haven't made an album this good in 12 years. This album is much faster and heavier than against or nation. Anyone who doesn't believe in post-max sepultura needs only to listen to this cd. Derrick's vocals are in top form and he shows that he is a more powerful and dynamic singer than max ever was. Paulo's bass is more noticeable to me than ever before, with a scattering of really cool bass lines throughout the cd. Andreas' guitar work is faster than it has been in recent years, and, thankfully, the great solos are BACK! But the best part of this album is, of course, Igor's drumming. If that is any surprise to you then you must not know Sepultura.
Come Back Alive, Corrupted, Mindwar, Leech, The Rift, and Activist are all great, fast songs. Apes of God is a mid-paced song with a really good riff and some NASTY drumming. More of the Same, Bottomed Out, Urge, and As It Is are all more unique songs showcasing Derrick's clean and varied vocals. I think the only one I didn't mention yet is Godless. It's a fairly heavy song, kind of on the slow side, and it really grows on you. This whole cd is excellent and a GREAT comeback for Sepultura. I Urge everyone to check this out. You won't be disappointed. Standout songs are The Rift, More of the Same, Come Back Alive, and all the others.

In a world filled with K-mart metal, and proceesed pop; Roorback is a breath of fresh air. Bringing the intsensity and insanity of what metal has always been back into the limelight. Every song is ferocious and impactful and down right amazingly crafted. The bonuss disc "Revolusongs" showcases Sepultura's divine ability to cover songs and make them their own. "Bullet the Bly Sky" by U2 and Jane's Addiction's "Mountain Song" are my favorite of the cover tunes. I would say my favorite album track, but there are too many that top the list for me. If you love metal, you'll love Roorback.

It really is sad that Derrick will forever be compared to Max. Both are very good metal frontmen with incredible writing and vocal abilities, and after Max left Sepultura in 1996, Max went and is doing his thing in the under-rated Soulfly and Derrick came in and is doing his thing with the new Sepultura. The bottom line is, this new sepultura isn't the 80's thrash sepultura or the early-mid 90's tribal sepulutra. This new style actually isn't bad at all when you stop expecting them to be thrash or tribal.

lets go through the albem track by track:

COME BACK ALIVE- this is perhaps the best sepultura song since the ROOTS album. with a suitably creepy intro, it rocks out in a similar style to Refuse-Resist. 5/5

GODLESS- This gem is sure to become a concert and all-around band staple, like INNER SELF was. 5/5

APES OF GOD- this is not as good as the first 2, but has enough to keep you off the skip button. 4/5

MORE OF THE SAME- I don't like this song that much, but it's better than most music today. 3/5

URGE- ditto #4 3/5

CORRUPTED- Just what we all need at this point, after the 2 worst songs on the album are past us, how about a speed-metal rampage with a killer solo to help out? 5/5

AS IT IS- this is really what urge and more of the same wanted to be. With thought-provoking lyrics and nice guitars, this is excellent5/5

MINDWAR- kinda like corrupted, except heavier and with a better vocal performance. 5/5

LEECH- another speed-metal song, which unforunetly slows down if I remember correctly. 4/5

THE RIFT- this excellent song hearkens back to Arise's "Altered state" (opinion, I may be wrong).

Following the failed commercial success of 2001's "Nation," Sepultura aborted their contract with Roadrunner records and signed with SPV records for the follow up, 2003's "Roorback." This album is the group's tenth album total, but only their third album without original vocalist Max Cavalera and with Derrick Green behind the mic.

Making an album without Sepultura's signature tribal drums has its pros and cons. On the plus side, "Roorback" is the group's heaviest album since Max left the band. But, on the other hand, this disc isn't as creative or all around as good as its predecessor, "Nation." And now Sepultura sound like a traditional metal band, and maybe even a nu-metal one.

I believe Sepultura wanted to make this their "return to form" or "back to basics" album. But, unfortunately, I think this record is only a partially successful attempt at sounding like vintage Sepultura of old. The first problem is the rhythm section still suffers without a second guitar. Second, Andreaas totally omits guitar solos, and his riffs are usually still plenty fast, but they're not nearly as inspired as his "Arise" days.

Also, Derrick's singing style hasn't at all matured; he's still snarling and bellowing most of the time. He tries his hand at a bit of crooning, at the beginning of "Bottomed Out," but the results aren't good. And, sometimes, a song (like track eight, "Mind War") would have turned out much better if Derrick would have just shut his friggin' yap! Finally, too many of the songs aren't memorable because they lack strong hooks.

Fortunately, this album is, as a whole, muscular enough to prevent it from being a complete throw-away.
