  • I honestly don't know why because the song isn't terribly bad, in fact it probably has one of the coolest breakdowns and guitar solos on the whole album, backed up by none other Igor Cavalera's amazing drumming
  • I think what really bugs me about Mass Hypnosis is it has this obnoxious harmonic riff that is rather annoying
  • It's pretty inspiring because I don't consider Andreas Kisser a very impressive lead guitarist but despite that he comes up with some very talented riffs/guitar solos

      “Mass Hypnosis” is the 4th track on Sepultura’s infamous album “Beneath The Remains”. Although this happens to be one of my least favorite songs on this album, it is still pretty dang good. Especially by today’s music standards which is pretty much all rubbish and pish posh in my eyes.

      At first listen this seems like a standard thrash metal song, and it very much is. For whatever reason this song doesn’t seem to stand out to me as much as other songs on this album. I honestly don’t know why because the song isn’t terribly


      bad, in fact it probably has one of the coolest breakdowns and guitar solos on the whole album, backed up by none other Igor Cavalera’s amazing drumming. I think what really bugs me about “Mass Hypnosis” is it has this obnoxious harmonic riff that is rather annoying. I think the song would be an infinite times better had they removed that part from “Mass Hypnosis”. It’s kind of funny because it is only like 6 notes in total when it plays. Also Max Cavalera’s voice throws me off on this song for whatever reason, it
      seems like it was forced a bit too much. The guitar is solid. It’s fast and has this almost rolling effect where it speeds back and forth consistently, it kind of makes you dizzy. Like I said, this song has one of the coolest breakdowns, especially for a song written over 23 years ago. The guitar’s get clean, similar to the tone on the opening track on “Beneath The Remains” conveniently titled…. “Beneath The Remains”. Then you get the stellar guitar solo. What makes it so brilliant is that it isn’t overly technical or fast ...

      for that matter but it makes great use of tone and melody. It’s pretty inspiring because I don’t consider Andreas Kisser a very impressive lead guitarist but despite that he comes up with some very talented riffs/guitar solos.

      As for the meaning of “Mass Hypnosis” I think it has something to do with being a military member and following orders blindly without questioning the humanity behind it. There are plenty of points in the song where it speaks of corrupt leaders and how soldiers are going nowhere because they are blinded by their faith/beliefs that these

      people are telling them. The title alone kind of defines this by itself “Mass Hypnosis”.

      “Mass Hypnosis” is a fun song to say the least, and yet it can be kind of annoying due only to those stupid harmonics! I really wish they never included those into the song, however I find it unfair to base the entire song on such a minor detail. The structure, lyrics, and instruments are excellent. Max’s vocals seem a little forced in this song but doesn’t totally kill the vibe and ruin the song. I say give this song a chance.
