Sarcófago was an extreme metal band who formed in 1985, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, by Antichrist (vocals), Incubus (bass), Butcher (guitars) and D.D.Crazy (drums). Wagner "Antichrist" Lamounier, former vocalist, joined the band right after his departure from the well-known Brazilian death/thrash metal act Sepultura. Sarcófago were one of the pioneers of black metal and one of the most influential 80's black metal bands. They have been quoted as influences by such icons of black metal as Euronymous (Mayhem), Fenriz (Darkthrone), Marko Laiho (Beherit) and Satyr (Satyricon)
The band split up in 2000.
