From: Date: February 28, 2001 at 11:56
to you this DAVID ADAMS max's next album roots was a fuckin monster with cutthroat and dictatorshit it is well over ballzy may not be as good as chaos AD but not fuckin weak

From: joey allen Date: March 12, 2001 at 13:03
david adams how can words like that spew from your mouth you are the biggest fag on the face of the earth

Chaos shows a mature but energetic Selpultura at its best. This is hands down their best album. The riffs are incredible and intense. Their cover of New Model Army's 'The Hunt' is classic. Selputura completely stepped out of their slayer influences on this album and forged their own unique interpretation of thrash/death metal that propelled them to another great album in 'Roots'. Selputura showed a willingness to expand and experiment while other death bands wallowed in traditional forumlas.

From: StephenTaylor Date: April 20, 2001 at 13:48
hey, if anyone is thinking of buying don't think, just buy if your a fan of black/death metal. But i do prefer Roots if you wanna check that out, its heavier than chaos and my favourite songs are on roots. Both albums are worth getting

A modern Classic! Metallica is dead. I'd much rather hear political songs played by a band like Sepultura, than a bunch of wankers raised by YUPPIES like Rage Against the Machine. Sepultura has lived 'it' where a band like Rage has just 'read it'. A must for any 'true metal fan'. Pick up the reisuue, the sound is excellent, plus the throw in some bonus live & rare tracks! a 10.0 on the SWINE SCALE!

Sepultura rules yo

From: Date: September 16, 2002 at 15:46
pretty nice effort, imo not nearly as good as their previous albums. Although refuse/resist is a classic song. 8/10 and people this is trash

From: Abz Date: September 28, 2002 at 20:09
Best dam Sepultura album by far. If you dont have this in your cd collection, there is something wrong with you. Also check out their new live album and DVD. SEPULTURA RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Maniak Date: January 8, 2003 at 16:56
You don`t own this album ? Jesus...then you`re a moron !

From: Scott Date: February 10, 2003 at 21:10
This CD is nothing short of fantastic! Chaos AD put Sepultura in a class all of their own, heads and tail above other thrash and death bands. HEAVY as heavy can get and more progressive than any of their earlier discs. A classic album in every sense of the word! See if this CD doesn't send you into instant fits of moshing! http://www.nolifetilmetal.com/sepultura.htm

From: Fat Freddy Date: February 16, 2003 at 18:47
The last good Sepultura CD... 'Roots' sucked and so has everything they've done since. Put a fork in these guys, they're done. And Soulfly blows too, just so you don't think I'm a Max fan.

From: darkfirelord Date: April 17, 2003 at 16:42
what the fuck is fat freddy's problem, every sepultura cd kicked ass and soulfly kicks ass to. Fuckin stoner.

From: psychoglen Date: June 22, 2003 at 1:06
My personal favorite Sepultura album. If you don't have it, get it.

From: Zze Date: October 21, 2003 at 4:46
I heard this when it came out. I think it sounds THOUSANDS times better than Arise. They started leaving the Thrash-Death Metal sound to a more modern / hardcore influenced sounding. This album helped creating the Nu Metal movement, but even with this still sounds great because Its still not 'NU' Metal

From: GABO Date: November 13, 2003 at 22:33
Before this album, Sepultura was fucking great,they played true metal, but with this metalcore shit they start to suck, of course Roots is even worst. MORBID VISIONS=6.5, SQUIZOPHRENIA=8, BENEATH THE REMAINS=9.3, ARISE=9, CHAOS A.D.=5, ROOTS=3

From: jimmy walden Date: December 15, 2003 at 17:06
this website is good yet it lacks many bands.It needs bands like THE HAUNTED, GOD FORBID, UNDEROATH, IMMORTAL, LAMB OF GOD, SCAR CULTURE, HATEBREED and MESHUGGAH.for those of you who don't know of those bands, you should really check them out!

From: jimmy walden Date: December 20, 2003 at 15:55
this album is really great.it had to influence so many other bands because it was made 10 years ago and it sounds very modern.the production is great.the whole atmosphere of the album is amazing.the tribal parts which echo with brilliance and the live songs at the end sound just like the they do on the albums.at first it seemed like the added artificial clapping.and call me crazy, but this album reminds me very much of IN FLAMES.rock on sepultura!!!

From: drummerfish Date: February 22, 2004 at 10:02
i seen them opening for pantera and prong in 94.somehow we got tickets in the orchestra pit.we were so jazzed.but once the pit started,i got my ass thumped by everything from boots to body parts.pantera's last sond was planet caravan,and they pulled scandaly clad chicks from the audience and brought them up on stage to dance.2 chicks lezed out.oh yeah...

From: iris Date: April 12, 2004 at 17:21
this album crows sepultura together with pantera to the 90's kings of trash metal! but don't kill me! I'm not includeing metallica and the other fathers of this genre!

From: Pork Skin Date: May 9, 2004 at 19:05
Al igual que el Arise, este es un disco excelente, de lo mejor del thrash de los 90's... Le doy un 10...

From: fanfrom Croatia Date: April 27, 2005 at 3:33
This is definitely on of the best (if not the best) Sepultura albums, Sepultura DID NOT starts to stink with this, but with Against album (Max Cavalera has gone). But, they are still MUCH better than, let's say, creepy CREEPY St.Anger (Metallica)!

From: fanfrom Croatia Date: April 27, 2005 at 3:39
Jimmy Walden rules, for mentioning missing bands, especially Meshuggah. I would like to add DEATH and similar great bands that are not included on the list.

From: juan carlos Date: November 17, 2006 at 10:17
Con este disco de hecho los SEPULTURA comenzaron su debacle. El disco es muy bueno, le gustará a sus fans de siempre.. pero no mata como mató sus anteriores discos y eso fué super-perjudicial para este gran grupo, una gran pena realmente. 1,2,7,8,11 y 12 mis favoritas. Buen disco. 8/10

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 6, 2013 at 20:22
I bought this disc at the end of eighth grade, May 1994, along with Pro-Pain's Foul Taste Of Freedomm. That was one thrashing summer. Sepultura slows down and diversifies, but not in a Metalllica way by any stretch. The songs on Chaos A.D. retain the feerocity of Beneath The Remains and Arise, but the blast beats are mostsly replaced by killer, headbanging grooves, often with tribal accents. Igor really comes into his own on this album, while the riffs of Max and Andreas are simpler and bludgeoning. I've heard this disc (and the follow-up Roots) had a big influence on the embryonic nu-metal scene of the time. That can be sensed here, and even moreso on Roots, but that's in hindsight. My picks: "Territory," "Slave NNew World," "Propaganda," "The Hunt," and the nightmarish closer "Clenched Fist," which dissolves into hellish feedback and car-alarm sounds to end the record. If I could keep only one Sepultura album, it would have to be this one.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 3, 2014 at 12:53
This album gave the band the final stab in what we can call their afterward and well deserved stardom ...solid release with a couple of powerful cuts and far the best ones in here IMHO in the shape of "Refuse/Resist" & "Territory"...some other bleeding moments are tracks 3,4,8,10,11 & 12...brutal,just brutal stuff in here...93/100
