by: Cavalera Conspiracy

The third studio long-player from the Brazilian brother-led metal outfit with ties to Sepultura, Soulfly, Gojira, Converge, and Stone Sour, the Napalm Records-issued Pandemonium finds the Cavalera Conspiracy falling back on their thrash roots, offering up a blistering ten-track set (an extended edition adds two bonus cuts) that dials back (a bit) on the thunderous groove-metal of prior outings in favor of a more kinetic, almost grindcore-inspired approach. Pandemonium was preceded by the aptly named first single "Bonzai Kamikazee," which chronicled the tenacity of Japanese suicide pilots during the Pacific campaign of World War II. ~ James Christopher Monger
