Morbid Visions is the debut album by Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura, released in
1986 through Cogumelo Records. While later albums have a more political
edge, Morbid Visions (along with the Bestial Devastation EP) is notable
for "Satanic" themes. The band said many lyrics were fashioned after
those of Venom and Celtic Frost, as they could not write in English at
this point. As late as 1987, Max Cavalera was still translating his
lyrics word-for-word, as evidenced by the demo "The Past Reborns the

It goes without saying that what Sepultura has turned into over the
years is not only disgraceful to the name of a once-was-great band, but
really just metal in general. However, this is not a rant concerning the
shit-eating nature of their post-‘Arise’ material, but rather a review
of my second favorite release from the band’s ’85-’89 golden era (my
first being the ‘Bestial Devastation’ EP), as well as a way of hopefully
justifying the album’s downfalls.

‘Morbid Visions’ is one of those albums that has to be looked at in a
contextual manner. Yes, it is sloppy. Yes, the production isn’t quite up
to par with people’s need for digital perfection. Yes, the lyrics are
retarded. All of these complaints are perfectly justifiable for those
who just simply cannot handle raw recordings such as this one, and whose
ears have been tainted by today’s modern metal standards. However, for
all of us who can in fact appreciate albums such as this one, in all of
its sloppy, ugly glory, then ‘Morbid Visions’ really is a classic, and
it will always be considered as such.

One of the main complaints this album seems to get is the production
value. Well boo-fucking-hoo, you pussies. Personally, I would have
preferred another ‘Bestial Devastation’-type production job, but this
one still does not bother me at all. The vocals are perfectly audible,
and have a dark, cavernous reverb effect on them. The guitar tones are
rather thin and tinny sounding, sacrificing a bit of the heaviness this
album could have achieved, but still do not deter from the malicious
aura this album gives off, and as long as you can still hear the riffing
perfectly, which you can, then you really can’t complain. The bass,
although not quite as upfront and kick-you-in-liver as it was on the
preceding release, is still there, albeit a bit buried amongst the
reverberated murkiness. The drums are also perfectly passable for an
older black/death album, despite sounding rather distant and of course
the sloppiness in which they are played with. Basically, if you can
handle ‘Bloody Vengeance’, ‘INRI’, and ‘Immortal Force’, or pretty much
all the other classic Brazilian recordings, you can without a doubt
handle ‘Morbid Visions’.

Where as ‘Bestial Devastation’ had a much stronger thrash-oriented,
proto-black/death sound, ‘Morbid Visions’, despite its primitiveness, is
pretty much a pure black/death metal album, with little in the way of
thrash influences. Max’s vocals on here are a bit deeper then on the EP,
but not my much. He also continues to use his brief, gruff growls, with
the occasional drawn out last couple of words of a verse, which often
is also given another layer with even more reverb on the original vocal
track. This effect has been used by many, and each time its just as
effective as the last. The riffing is still quite simplistic and hadn’t
quite reached the level of technicality, for lack of a better word, as
on ‘Schizophrenia’. But I feel it’s really for the better that the riffs
on here are as simple as they are, as the band at this point obviously
was not capable of impeccable, precise thrashing madness. They use lots
of tremolo picking, almost in a black metal fashion, mixed with death
metal-like palm-muted riffs and things of that nature. I think they
could have been even more effective given the proper production job, but
the way they were recorded actually gives off a rather eerie
atmosphere. The drumming is the sloppiest part of the album, as well as
the most simplistic, but he keeps up pretty consistently, and when he
does lose his place, he seems to find it again a short while later. The
fills and snare rolls are kind of all over the place, and the
double-bass skills are pretty much non-existent, but this all adds to
savage, bestial nature of the album.

Once you stop being a pussy get past the production and sloppiness, this
is a pretty damn fine piece of early black/death metal done in the 80’s
Brazilian tradition that many of us have grown to love. I know it may
be hard for some to believe that a band who sucks as much as everything
released after ‘Arise’ did was actually good at one point, but I still
recommend you forget about all of that and worship at the altar of this
amazing piece of old-school history.
