Sepultura – Sepulnation – The Studio Albums 1998 – 2009 8LP Boxset Review

13th October 2021 0 By John Deaux

This is an absolute monster of a box and it’s hard to know where to start with the review of these Brazilian legends box. 8LPs, all cut at half speed, on 180gm vinyl along with the rare Revolsongs E.P
Score  9/10 (would’ve been 10/10 had they been 180gm and coloured, but I’m nit picking😉)

Seriously tho, this is an absolute no brainer. The mastering job is fabulous, the sound quality is outstanding and the packaging is sturdy, glossy, looks amazing and the records are all pressed on audiophile vinyl.

Every album is hard as nails, even the 2 ‘prog’ (of course they’re prog their concept records) are immense. 

After A and B’ing the original pressings, the difference is night and day.  Everything is in your face and exactly how this era of Sepultura should sound like. 

With this being cut at half, the stylus has a lot more room to breathe within the groove making these albums sound the best they possible can after all these years.

The highlights for me are as follows:
Ludwig Van (from A-Lex)sounds absolutely HUGE now.
Bullet The Blue Sky  (Side 4 of  Roorback) Bono wishes he sounded this pissed of.
The whole of Against is still punk as fuck but is a monster of an album to slam dance to. 

I highly recommend upgrading to the LP box set for your collections. You won’t be disappointed. Just check out the unboxing video.
