Gatefold double vinyl with etched side 4. It was the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil that launched the ascent of native sons Sepultura (Portuguese for ‘grave’) in 1983 with a trajectory aimed unsuspectingly at the worldwide metal music scene. A band with humble economic beginnings whose musical identity was forged in the context of living through Brazil’s authoritarian military dictatorship, Sepultura would go on to become Brazilian ambassadors to the metal world. Now featuring long-time guitarist Andreas Kisser (who joined in 1987), original bassist Paulo Jr. , Ohio-born vocalist Derrick Green and drum prodigy Eloy Casagrande, Sepultura continue to release skull-crushing albums and pack venues and festival stages worldwide. The band’s 14th studio album, ‘Machine Messiah’, produced by Jens Borgen (Opeth, Amon Amarth) was inspired by the robotisation of our society.
