"Altered State" as written by Igor Cavalera, Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
Fear in my subconscious
Terror invades my speech
Faith in my own words
No one knows the nameless

Warm winds and burning tears
Spirits outside bodies

Endless repression by majority
A master without command
Strange new dimension disturbing my brain
Censored ideas, counterfeit answers

Shining blast, no perception
Altered state, no reaction
Shining blast
Altered state

Slow talk, fast thoughts
Ancient scriptures
Controversial lines
Knowledge changes

Running in the wrong direction
Crossing with blind eyes
I'm closer to myself
Sanity can't invade

    General CommentHoly mother of god, just listening to this song wears me out. It's perhaps one of the most intense metal songs ever written, and I can't believe no one has commented on it yet.

    If you haven't heard this song, find your loudest speakers and give it a friendly listening.

    General CommentThis is a good place to start when looking to learn palm mute and scratch guitar techniques. Sepultura have such an intense way of playing rhythm guitar. The solo is mindblowing, but it's not necessary that complex.

    General CommentI think this song is about corruption in some religions and how through the ages certain religions have manipulated there religion to what they want people to believe. "no one knows the nameless" I think refers to gods name being excluded from most bibles. "censored ideas, counterfeit answers" would support the idea of religious leaders only telling followers what they want them to know. "crossing with blind eyes" makes me think of all the people who blindly follow because they don't have a true understanding.
