121 – Palm Reader, Billie Joe Armstrong, Hatebreed and Clutch

Steve’s in a festive mood because it’s Thanksgiving and nothing gets him feeling more jolly than celebrating the concentrated slaughter of millions of people… ahhh bliss! But there’s genuinely something to celebrate as the long awaited 4th album from Palm Reader is out. Remfry and Steve review that alongside new albums by Billie Joe Armstrong, Hatebreed and Clutch. And we also correct our errors from last week when stating that there are no bands left to reform … you’ve come back to us in your droves and we cycle through the bands you’d like to see reform who haven’t done so yet.

CA05 Sepultura – Roots

Welcome back to another one of Riot Act’s Classic Albums Series. This week Steve’s up, and his pick is the, critically acclaimed yet often misunderstood, 6th album from Brazilian thrash/death/nu-metal pioneers Sepultura. 

The boys look back at Sepultura’s career till that point, and try and work out what exactly was the inspiration behind making the record, we look at the point in heavy music around the records release, it’s recording process, it’s phenomenal success, the tragedy that enveloped in and the unfortunate unravelling that happened soon after. An unravelling that ended up destroying the classic Sepultura lineup. We also look at the aftermath of everyone involved in the records career and ask if this was their creative high-point.
