Sepultura - The mediators from Brazil
Sepultura is one of those bands that does not need special introduction to any real metalhead. The legendary band had paved their way in the Brazilian underground scene with their uncompromising mix of thrash and death metal already in the mid-eighties.
Raw recordings such as “Morbid Visions” and “Schizophrenia” became a cult that is getting them new followers even today. With albums like “Beneath The Remains” and “Arise”, they became one of the most prominent names in the metal scene. They continued to develop in the nineties, becoming heavier and more groovy. Masterpieces of that time are their albums “Chaos A.D.” and “Roots”, on witch they introduced ethno elements. After a quite dramatic line-up change, the band shaped and unleashed their anger over corruption in politics and created a utopia where people found one nation without wars and conflicts – hence the name of the album: “Nation”. Dark times followed, so pessimists and critics wrote them off after the release of their album “A-Lex”. Sepultura, at that time already led by their long time guitarist Andreas Kisser, did not throw in the towel. They have returned in all their glory and magnificence on their twelfth album titled “Kairos”. Speaking of great Sepultura albums: “The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart” is no exception in terms of greatness. Sepultura is far from getting old – do not miss the icons of South-American metal at Metaldays 2015.
