BRAZILIAN METALLERS SEPULTURA JOIN SRF LINE UP!
In the early 80s, most Europeans would have scoffed at the idea of a Brazilian metal band. This changed in 1989, when Sepultura released “Beneath the remains” which became an instant thrash metal-classic. The band that formed in Belo Horizonte in 1984 got their international break with this album, their third. The subsequent releases “Arise” (1991), “Chaos AD” (1993) and “Roots” (1996) were even more successful.
Then frontman Max Cavalera jumped ship to form Soulfly. Undaunted, Sepultura soldiered on with American frontman Derrick Green, with whom they have so far released another six albums. The most recent one, “Kairos” (2011), is also one of the most appreciated ones, having much in common with the band’s earliest works: the music is brutal and primitive, but still very well played. Sepultura have indeed timed their return to SRF well.
