  • In my personal and humble opinion, this is the best song on the entire album
  • Though the band was still fairly young and new, it is amazing just how fast they grew into musicians since their very first release which was a pile of boo boo
  • I think this song is about being confined and suppressed in society

      “Slaves of Pain” is the sixth song on the thrash masterpiece “Beneath the Remains” by Sepultura. In my personal and humble opinion, this is the best song on the entire album. This song alone showcases almost everything Sepultura has to offer at that point and time in their career. Though the band was still fairly young and new, it is amazing just how fast they grew into musicians since their very first release which was a pile of boo boo.

      “Slaves of Pain” wastes no time and immediately starts with a bang. This for the most part is a non stop shred


      fest, and happens to be one of the more faster songs on the album. The song itself is structured remarkably well. Max Cavalera’s rhythm guitar riffs are tight and on point. Not only that, but they are infectious on how incredibly catchy they are. Andreas Kisser has some killer leads including a “needle dee nee needle dee neeee” guitar solo. Speaking about killer, Igor Cavalera destroys the drums on this song. I know I put Igor on a pedestal whenever I write a review about Sepultura, but seriously this is some of the best drumming I’ve ever heard. “Slaves of Pain” ...

      • is a masterpiece, my personal favorite part of the song is the little breakdown into the last verse at the end of the song. That guitar riff along with Igor’s double bass blasts is so cool I distinctly remember immediately looking up guitar tabs for “Slaves of Pain” when I heard that part.

        As far as “Slaves of Pain” goes lyrically? I think this song is about being confined and suppressed in society. It kind of states that freedom and liberty is nothing but a dream. You’ll always be controlled and there really isn’t anything you can do about it. That’s the

        meaning I get from it anyways, it could totally be about the exact opposite. It still doesn’t change that “Slaves of Pain” is kick butt of a song.

        “Slaves of Pain” is totally a Sepultura masterpiece, especially as far as old Sepultura goes. If you are a thrash metal fan, maybe you like Metallica or Slayer or something, buy “Beneath the Remains”. As soon as you buy it, whether cd, tape, mp3, 8track or whatever, put it on “Slaves of Pain”. Next crank up the volume as loud as it goes and get ready to melt into the floor in a pile of gush.
