Blunt Force Trauma (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Feb 2011
Label: Roadrunner Records
Blunt Force Trauma is an apt title. On Cavalera Conspiracy's overdue sophomore effort, released three years after its debut album, the group is all about brutal thrash fortified with death metal's manic precision and violently screaming hot licks. The record's second track, "Torture," is indicative of Cavalera Conspiracy's overall aesthetic; with Max Cavalera chanting "torture, motherf*ckin' torture" over and over, the band makes like a pack of hellhounds dashing across a corpse-strewn wasteland ravenous for fresh meat. Hardcore Sepultura fans will certainly be pleased with what they hear.
