I didn't think the vocals sounded terrible. The initial verse sounds pretty good before he goes deeper. I don't care for the sound though. It does sound a little too clean and isn't right without the defining Sepultura tone or something more substantial to replace it. There's just not enough style to it as a cover.

saw these guys last night. awesome show. they played this song. too bad Travis left already. he was one of my favorite drummers. The new drummer Nick is no Travis but he fits well with the band. He did pretty well for his second show. in two months we get lamb of god and testament. METAl is alive and well here in the philippines

cheers from the philippines!

WTF? Nothing wrong with the vocals.

They are not trying to mimic Sepultura - its TRIVIUM'S version of the song, the vocals are fine. A different twist on an old classic. I like it

This could've done a way better job, I not a Trivium fan at all but their cover of Iron Maiden's "Iron Maiden" was pretty decent I thought. This on the other hand is just crap, post #1 said it best, way over produced guitar tones do not do Sepultura justice, and if there's any band out there that deserves a tribute it's Sep. And yes, the vocals are just f***in' terrible, I honestly think it would sound better if Matt Heafy actually tried to mimic Max which I would normally say is a big no no but those vocals are just unbearable. They should've taken a page outta Throwdown's book cuz their cover of Propaganda I think is almost better than the original.

Hahaha Blind. The dude saying that isn't even what bugged me, it was the sheer idiocy in the way that he presented his arguments, and for some reason I just couldn't let it go, haha.

This cover is rather mediocre. That's what significant covers are all about right? Adding your own touch to it...

Now, where's my copy of Schizophrenia?
