Time to give the week a much needed kick up the arse that doesn’t involve a lethal dose of caffeine? Back in 1991 when VHS was King, Brazilian Thrash Gods Sepultura were busy making a name for themselves. Like Pantera they began to not only release albums but videos to add a third dimension for their fans and with “Third World Chaos” we got a promotional video for “Dead Embryonic Cells” that found the band performing in the wilderness accompanied by imagery from their fourth studio album “Arise“.

In the Red Corner we have Gorgatron who recorded their version for the Metal Injection Slay At Home series however they ended up keeping it for their recently deceased EP “Agony Reborn“.

Who Wins? You decide!
