Sarcófago - I.N.R.I.

Here we go with the umpteenth re-release of this landmark Black/Thrash album, this time a 2002 version containing the original nine tracks plus a demo version of Satanas, two bonus tracks from the Warfare Noise Comp. I, as well as three live songs.


Theres not much that can be said about this album that hasnt been said already. Its raw, its dirty, its relentless and it is EVIL!!! This is the album that truly cemented Brazils place in the Metal Underground and alongside VULCANOs Bloody Vengeance is one of the most extreme albums the South American content has ever spawned. This is the satanic wedding of early HELLHAMMER, SODOM and BATHORY with a little vintage BULLDOZER on the side. Tracks like Satanas, Deathrash and The Last Slaughter are pure demonically-tinged Thrash monsters that go right for the jugular, while the band also showcases its slower moments during the more Doom-ish Nightmare. Fuck it, if you are a serious fan of underground music then this should already be in your collection and you should already know these songs like the palmn of your hands!


The best aspect of this album is the unbelievably grotesque vocals of Wagner Antichrist (ranging from typical Thrash screams to vomited growls) and the insane blasts of drummer DD Crazy his drumming is amazing for 1987 standards!! The production is reasonably good, with special attention placed on the low end and the drum-vox balance. Lyric wise this is about as nasty as you can get, in an infantile way broken English, exhortations to kill God, death, rape etc Everything about this album just sc reams insanity!! The bonus tracks are a nice addition and the live songs are well done.


Nothing more will or needs to be said you need this album. To see where MAYHEM (esp. Euronymous) got its influences from. Both in terms of imagery and riffing style, look no further n than this ugly son of a bitch record! An all-tile classic of the Underground!!
