Sepultura - Live In Sao Paulo (SPV) - Back
I’m not a stranger to seeing Sepultura on stage, so I know how amazing of a show they can put on. So much energy it’s insane! “Live In Sao Paulo” also captures a component of their live intensity, but come on there is no substitute for seeing them right in front of your eyes. You don’t have to worry about a bad selection of tracks in this set. There is quite a list of songs. Exactly what you would expect from Sepultura’s immense repertoire of heavy beat driven tunes. These include classics like “Refuse/Resist,” “Territory,” “Arise” which goes right into “Dead Embryonic Cells,” “Roots Bloody Roots,” and “Escape To The Void.” The other half of the set is made of Green era songs like “Choke,” “Come Back Alive,” and ”Apes of God.” There are twenty-one total tracks that are spread over two CDs and this was recorded in their hometown of Sao Paulo in April of 2005. Production is respectable for a live show, but not what you would expect for a live Sepultura recording. Not that you would expect a live production to be perfectly clear, but I’ve heard better. There isn’t much else to say except for you will find yourself jamming along with the tunes. You can’t stop Sepultura!
