Max Cavalera, being the former main songwriter for Sepultura, wrote a majority of the material here, so itís no surprise that Sepultura comparison are made. Like his last release with Sepultura, "Roots," Max incorporates experimentation with Brazilian tribal drumming and rhythms and mixes it with ultra heavy metal. Also like Sepultura, the energy and agression don't let up throughout the entirety of the album. Unfortunately a lot of modern crappy influences have also crept in, including some elements of rap-core. This is evident especially when viewing the long list of guest musicians/vocalists who include: Chino Moreno from the Deftones, Fred Durst and D.J. Lethal from Limp Bizkit, Eric Bobo from Cypress Hill, and Burton C. Bell, Dino Cazares, and Christian Olde Wolbers from Fear Factory.
