I don't know if I've ever seen a positive Holy Moses review
Honestly, Finished With the Dogs is great. I had never listened to Holy Moses before starting this little journey, and was definitely underwhelmed by Queen of Siam -- although how could you not be impressed by Sabina's vocals? It's like they flipped a switch for the second one though. RIFFFFFS!

There's nothing wrong with her vocals; it's always cool to hear a female vocalist in thrash. My issue is more that those two albums were pretty boring. There are tons of riffs, but most thrash albums have tons of riffs. I'll still give them another shot anyways.

No, I wasn't implying that there was anything wrong with her vocals. Queen of Siam was just mediocre as hell. Definitely give Dogs a shot.

Sepultura - Schizophrenia - October 30, 1987

While Sepultura's first two releases, Bestial Devastation and Morbid Visions were mish-mashes of black, death and thrash with varying degrees of success, their third release, Schizophrenia finds Max & Co. mainlining pure, premium grade fucking thrash. Let's put emphasis on the premium part too, OK? Sure, some ideas still come out of left field like they did on their earlier efforts, but they are less "what in the fucking fuck?" and more "shit, that's fucking heavy". Max's vocals on Schizophrenia may be a little raspy and drenched in a black-esque reverb too, but that's OK because Max's vocals are not the star of the show here. Max's vocals do not need to set the world on fire, they just need to be adequate and not awful.

So what is the star of the show? Why, Max's supreme riffing, of course. The sheer number of quality riffs crammed into Schizophrenia is enough to vault it into the upper echelon of thrash albums as it is, let alone the ridiculously intense attack of the guitars, new guitarist Anders Kisser's frantic leads and Igor's soon-to-be signature drum style. The production is not the best, but that should probably be expected, given the band's origins, but it does not really take away from the overall impact of the album.

Yes folks, Schizophrenia is a quality piece of thrash metal. The first four tracks after the intro are absolutely brilliant. The next four are less so, but still shit all over at least 80% of what passed as thrash metal in 1987. The scary thing is, Schizophrenia is just Sepultura getting warmed up.

Standouts: From the Past Comes the Storms, Escape to the Void, Inquisition Symphony

Score: 9/10

Amazing album. So many memorable riffs on this CD! Even "The Abyss" is great! Sepultura were such a powerful band during the late 80s/early 90s.

Schizo used to be my favorite Sepultura album until I listened to Beneath the Remains more . Really good, though! Andreas did wonders fo that band.

To The Wall is the song I remember liking the most from that album. Inquisition Symphony is also the jam. I'd like From The Past Comes The Storms more if the riff that shows up at 0:55 appeared 700 more times.

You really can't go wrong with any of those first four songs. I could have easily put To the Wall on my list of three standouts in place of one of the others... or I should have just made four standouts lol

Eh, those were all appropriate picks. I actually haven't listened to the album in awhile so I should re-research it.
