Desperate Cry

Songfacts®:

  • Sepultura vocalist/guitarist Max Cavalera told Holland edition Aardschok/Metal Hammer in April 1991: "'Desperate Cry' has an acoustic part in the beginning and starts real slow and heavy, but then it keeps on getting faster. That acoustic part then returns in the middle of the song. It's kind of a depressing song because it's about how somebody feels right before he dies. Especially Andreas likes this song very much. The lyrics and music fit together perfectly on this one." >>
