Sepultura: Brazil's Metal Pioneers Tackling Social Issues and Pushing Boundaries in Music Since 1984

SEPULTURA Band Description:

Sepultura is a Brazilian metal band that has been active since 1984. Over the years, they have established themselves as one of the most influential metal bands in the world. Their music is characterized by a mix of thrash metal, death metal, and hardcore punk, and their lyrics often address social and political issues. 

The band was formed in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, by the Cavalera brothers, Max and Igor. Their early music was heavily influenced by bands like Slayer, Venom, and Motörhead. In 1985, they released their first album, "Bestial Devastation," which was a split album with another Brazilian band, Overdose. This album showcased the band's raw, aggressive sound, which would become their trademark in the years to come. 

In 1986, Sepultura released their first full-length album, "Morbid Visions." This album was a significant step forward for the band, both musically and lyrically. It showcased a more mature sound that incorporated elements of death metal and thrash metal, while also addressing social and political issues. 

Sepultura's breakthrough came in 1991 with the release of "Arise." This album was a critical and commercial success, and it helped establish the band as a major force in the metal world. The album featured the hit single "Dead Embryonic Cells," which became one of the band's signature songs. It also featured some of the band's most complex and challenging music, showcasing their technical skills as musicians. 

In 1993, Sepultura released "Chaos A.D.," which is considered by many to be their masterpiece. This album was a major departure from their earlier sound, incorporating elements of industrial and tribal music. It also featured lyrics that addressed social and political issues, such as poverty, corruption, and the plight of indigenous peoples. 

Sepultura's success continued with the release of "Roots" in 1996. This album was a groundbreaking work that blended metal with traditional Brazilian music, such as samba and capoeira. It also featured guest appearances from Brazilian musicians and a choir of tribal singers. "Roots" showcased Sepultura's versatility and their willingness to experiment with different musical styles. 

Unfortunately, Sepultura's success was not to last. In 1996, Max Cavalera left the band, citing personal and creative differences. His departure was a major blow to the band, as he had been the driving force behind their success. The remaining members of the band continued to make music, but they were never able to recapture the magic of their earlier work.
