Belo Horizonte, Brazil (1983 – present)

Sepultura is a Brazilian metal band that formed in 1983 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The band was a major force in the , and ultimately realms during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Their name means “grave” in Portuguese, which they chose after Max Cavalera, one of the founding members, was translating the lyrics of the Motörhead song “Dancing on Your Grave”.

Sepultura was formed by Max Cavalera (guitars and vocals), his younger brother Igor Cavalera (drums), Paulo Pinto (bass) and Jairo Guedes (guitars). Sepultura signed to Cogumelo Records after a few years of performing, with a sound influenced by their favorite bands such as Ratos de Porão, Discharge, Possessed, GBH and Metallica. Their first EP was Bestial Devastation, a split with OverDose’s album on the flipside. Their first LP was Morbid Visions (1986), which included the moderate hit “Troops of Doom” that attracted the band some attention. After Morbid Visions, Jairo Guedes left the band for another death metal venture and Sao Paulo based guitarist Andreas Kisser replaced him. Their second full-length album was Schizophrenia, which was a critical success that led to a contract with Roadrunner Records.

With Roadrunner distributing Schizophrenia worldwide, Sepultura reached new audiences of metal fans, cemented by 1989’s Beneath the Remains (1989), which was followed by a long European tour.

    I think that these last few albums with Derrick Green have been great, especially since Dante XXI.

    Yesterday evening in Moscow was absolutely amazing. Although I prefer Max Cavalera's vocals on the studio records, I have to say that Derrick Green fucking kills on live performances. He sure knows how to make crowds move.
