Sepultura is a Brazilian thrash metal band, formed in 1983. Their name means "grave" in Portuguese, which they chose after Max Cavalera, one of the founding members, was translating the lyrics of the Motörhead song "Dancing on Your Grave".

Sepultura was formed in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in 1983 by Max Cavalera (guitars and vocals), his younger brother Igor Cavalera (drums), Paulo Pinto (bass) and Jairo Guedes (guitars). Sepultura signed to Cogumelo Records after a few years of performing, with a sound influenced by their favorite bands such as Ratos de Porão, Discharge, Possessed, GBH and Metallica. Their first EP was Bestial Devastation, a split with Overdose's album on the flipside. Their first LP was Morbid Visions (1986), which included the moderate hit "Troops of Doom" that attracted the band some attention. After Morbid Visions, Jairo Guedes left the band for another death metal venture and Sao Paulo based guitarist

SEPULTURA Beneath the Remains

Album · 1989 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Beneath the Remains" is the 3rd full-length studio album by Brazilian thrash metal act Sepultura. The album was released through Roadrunner Records in September 1989. Sepultura was formed in 1984 and released an early death/thrash hybrid in "Morbid Visions (1986)" and followed it up by the more purely thrash metal oriented "Schizophrenia" from 1987. By that time very few outside Brazil had heard of Sepultura, but that would radically change when they were picked up by Roadrunner Records, who gave "Beneath the Remains" a worldwide release. An almost instant hit among thrash/death metal fans the world over, "Beneath the Remains" to this day remains one of the seminal thrash metal albums in the brutal end of the scale.

Stylistically the music is aggressive and energetic thrash metal with the raw barking vocals of Max Cavalera in front. While the music is thrash metal to the bone, Sepultura was often associated with the early 90s death metal scene, and there are indeed some death metal traits to be found on "Beneath the Remains". The death metal influence is predominantly a result of the Morrisound Recording sound production courtesy of Sepultura and Scott Burns. "Beneath the Remains" was recorded in Nas Nuvens Studio, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in December 1988, but mixed at Morrisound Recording, Tampa, Florida. It´s one of the first thrash metal releases to be graced by such a meaty, brutal, and heavy sound production, and the sound made the album stand out upon release.

Of course that wouldn´t have been enough, if the songwriting didn´t follow suit. But the material on "Beneath the Remains" is generally very well written and memorable. Personally I´ve always felt that the first part of the album is slightly more memorable than the second part of the album, and especially tracks like "Inner Self", "Stronger Than Hate", "Mass Hypnosis", and the title track stand out. The quality and catchiness of the remaining tracks are really high too though. The greatest asset regarding the material is probably that it has a unique sound. Many artists can play and write moderately interesting material, but Sepultura wrote material for "Beneath the Remains", which sounds original. You know almost instantly that it´s them playing when you hear the music.

In addition to the fast-paced thrash metal riffing, and the mid-paced heavy grooves, the music also features a couple of atmospheric parts, and some blistering solo work. The latter is both fast-paced screaming chromatic solos and more melodic themes and solos. The musicianship is strong and although Max Cavalera is a pretty one-dimensional vocalist with greatly accented vocals, his voice and phrasing still suits the music well.

So upon conclusion "Beneath the Remains" is arguably what you´d call a thrash metal "classic". It´s not that there aren´t artists out there who hadn´t released more ferocious material before this album was released (Slayer, Possessed, Kreator/Sodom/Destruction, and Dark Angel, just to mention a few), but Sepultura still managed to put a more brutal twist on thrash metal that helped build a bridge to death metal without being death metal, and that was something pretty new at the time. At least in the perfected form as it´s heard on "Beneath the Remains". A 4.5 star (90%) rating is deserved.

SEPULTURA Machine Messiah

Album · 2017 · Groove Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Machine Messiah" is the 14th full-length studio album by Brazilian metal act Sepultura. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in January 2017. It´s the successor to "The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart" from 2013, and features the exact same lineup who recorded the predecessor.

Stylistically the material on "Machine Messiah" is a combination of thrash and groove metal, and there are even a couple of progressive metal traits to be found, which isn´t a completely new thing in Sepultura´s universe, but it´s less understated here than on previous efforts into progressive territories. The latter is only an influence though and is mostly heard on the instrumental "Iceberg Dances" and the following "Sworn Oath". "Machine Messiah" is overall a rather adventurous release, and in addition to the two tracks mentioned above, there are fast aggressive thrashers like "I Am the Enemy" and "Silent Violence", and heavy epic tracks like "Cyber God" and the title track (which features some really strong clean vocals by Derrick Green), featured on the album. Tracks like "Phantom Self" and "Resistent Parasites" both feature a lot of heavy grooves, but that´s an element, which is dominant throughout the album. So all in all "Machine Messiah" is a relatively varied album.

It´s also a very well written album, and each track stand out and leaves a lasting impression. "Machine Messiah" is a concept album influenced by "the robotization of our society" (the band´s own words). There´s a dark and angry atmosphere surrounding the release, which suits Sepultura well. The musicianship is as always on a high level and a great asset to the album. Green has a strong voice and a commanding and versatile delivery, Andreas Kisser plays one inventive guitar riff and solo after another, Paulo Jr. delivers the heavy bass grooves, and Eloy Casagrande is one hell of a powerhouse drummer. Actually I can´t stop praising Casagrande for what he has done for Sepultura´s sound since he entered the lineup on 2011. His playing is fusion influenced, but he is also true to the band´s thrash/groove metal roots, and the occassional tribal style drumming part. He delivers any kind of rhythm with seamless ease and great conviction. He is a major asset to the band´s sound and the rest of the band should go to great lengths to keep him in the band.

"Machine Messiah" features a powerful and detailed sound production which helps bring the best out in the material, so it´s a high quality release on all parameters. A great sounding production, a well playing band, and very well written material...you can´t really ask for more. In terms of "Machine Messiah´s" place in Sepultura´s by now huge discography, I´d dare say it´s one of their better releases and probably their best post-Max Cavalera album yet. While a lot of water has run under the bridge since the glory days of the early- to mid 90s, and Sepultura have picked up quite a few new influences since then, this may be an album which can bring some of the old fans back into the fold. If not for the Sepultura name, then for the sheer quality of the music. A 4.5 star (90%) rating is deserved.

Sepultura hasn't gotten a whole lot of appreciation since 1993's Chaos A.D. While Roots does get a bit more appreciation from those who don't have an issue with nu-metal, you won't hear many talking about any of the post-Cavalera albums. Four years after the release of the lengthy titled The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart, which was seen as Sepultura's return to a thrash metal-based sound, the band returns with the much simpler titled Machine Messiah.

Machine Messiah features quite a variety of musical elements, inside and outside of metal, and actually comes across as quite experimental. There's a blend of tribal groove metal and crossover thrash throughout the majority of the album, the latter being most prevalent in "I Am the Enemy". It's one of the most crushing songs the band's released in a while, and instantly got me hooked with its chromatic death metal riffing, rumbling bass sound, and punk-thrash pace. Want more thrash, "Vandals Nest" brings some total old-school thrash mixed with some great melodies towards the end. I must also give mention to the guitar tone on this album, it's got such a razor-sharp punch to it, while having a dissonant tone for the slower bits.

The album opens up and ends on an odd note for Sepultura, with both the title track and "Cyber God" being melodic heavy metal/alternative metal tracks with a bit of a metalcore vibe. This may be seen as a negative for some, but I think it works great and makes these among the best on the album. "Sworn Oath" is another song that displays some of this influence at the beginning, but soon picks up a killer groove with majestic symphonic instrumentation. Derrick Green's melodic vocals on this track are really deep and emotive, and creates a nice contrast to his usual gruff barks. Speaking of said vocals, his gruff vocals on this album remind me a lot of Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke at his most raw and are delivered with great conviction. Just check out his performance on "Silent Violence", that's what I call pure raw power!

Also among the best on the album are "Phantom Self" and the instrumental "Iceberg Dances". The former is a groovy tune that has a middle-eastern sound to it played by an instrument that I can't tell if it's just a guitar or something else. "Resistant Parasites" also features a bit of middle-eastern instrumentation towards the end. "Iceberg Dances" is the best instrumental track I've heard in a while, blending a tribal groove with some unexpected influences. Most notable of these would be the organ that surprisingly fits right in, who knew organ and groove metal would sound so awesome together?

Sepultura's done it, they've made a masterpiece to rival their 80's and early 90's classics. Instead of trying to imitate their classic material, the band blended a wide range of styles and influences that ended up mixing together perfectly. If you're looking for an eclectic groove metal album, look no further than Machine Messiah. Hope you found this review helpful, feel free to comment!

If you're a Sepultura fan, then here's some good news and some bad news for you. First, the good news: you have a lot of money. That's quite nice really, we all want to be rich. So what could be the bad news? Well, the bad news is you're an idiot. Roadrunner Records seem to think you are anyway.

Roadrunner have always been notorious for re-releasing albums in numerous, ever so slightly different formats. When they saw their greatest ever cash cow imploding, Roadrunner panicked, and started grubbing round to see how much Sepultura material they could find. The archives were quite full, with a heap of studio outtakes and enough concert material for a killer live album. So did they put together a live album and a B-sides album? Nope, this is Roadrunner. Instead, the live stuff and the outtakes were split in two and mixed up, almost at random, on two different releases. One of the releases was a repackaged bonus disc version of `Roots', and `Blood Rooted'. This meant completists would have to buy a new, more expensive version of `Roots' and another separate album in `Blood Rooted' if they wanted to get all of Sepultura's unreleased and live material.

As for the "idiot" bit, try this on: on the front cover of `Blood Rooted' a little stamp says "Over an hour of live and rare material". How rare is something which is bundled onto a CD and released through major distribution channels world-wide? A lot of these songs had never been released, like the demos (which wouldn't have been intended for release anyway) and the live tracks. If these songs had been released on hedgehog-shaped four-inch blue vinyl on an Icelandic New Age record label, limited to 17 copies, then trumpeting them as rare would be fully justified. The cover of the Dead Kennedy's "Drug Me", storming and violent as it is, appears on both releases, and had also already appeared on at least one compilation and an EP, so you be the judge as to how "rare" it is.

Complaints aside, `Blood Rooted' gets off to a decent enough start. Celtic Frost's "Procreation Of The Wicked" would be heavy and menacing no matter who played it. This is as heavy as a truckload of bricks, with a nice line in stressed guitar effects. "Inhuman Nature" is a `Chaos AD' song, right? Well, no, it's a Final Conflict cover, so now we know where the inspiration for the sound on that album came from. Then there's "Policia", a cover of a song by Brazilian Hardcore band Titas, and it's fairly straightforward, traditional Seps material, as are the versions of "Drug Me", and Ratos De Porao's "Crucificados Pelo Sistema"

But then it gets messy. Next up is a cover of Bob Marley's "War". Cool, Bob Marley, ganga and grooves, right? Nope. This sounds more like U2 and Neurosis having a fight, and someone has recorded it on a Walkman. Think that's bad? Try this then! Sepultura manage to wreck up the unwreckable- Black Sabbath's "Symptom Of The Universe". It has two redeeming features- Igor's drumming, which is incredibly precise, and Andreas' solo. Otherwise, Max half-heartedly strums his way through the rhythms, and listlessly moans and grumbles through the lyrics. What could have been a powerful tribute to a metal legend ended up a flat and lifeless embarrassment.

The Mike Patton collaboration "Mine" was recorded during the `Chaos AD' sessions, but sounds more like a half paced `Roots' track. Patton's trademark vocal acrobatics are wasted on yet another half-baked mess of a song. "Lookaway" is a poorly conceived Korn collaboration.

The live environment is where bands live and die in the eyes of fans, and if the previous few tracks had drained the life from Sepultura's corpse, the live tracks reanimate it as a homicidal zombie intent on bringing about metallic Armageddon. Long-time fans were not at all keen on `Chaos AD' as the band had drifted from their thrash roots. In a live environment, the tracks sit perfectly comfortably next to much older material. The powerful percussive lead in to "Propaganda" could have come off any Sepultura album from `Schizophrenia' onward. The electric version of "Kaiowas" makes for a change of pace, and proved the track wasn't just a studio construct. The live tracks are reasonably clear in recording quality, and don't sound like they've been interfered with much in the studio. The energy and metal feel they convey almost belie the fact the band had metamorphosed into a much-despised nu-metal entity.

On the whole, this album is very uneven, and would have been a very unsatisfying epitaph for a once great band had it been the final release. The studio tracks are hardly worth the effort, and the half-a-live album is too short. Approach it with eyes and ears wide open.

SEPULTURA Third World Posse

EP · 1992 · Thrash Metal

Vim Fuego
As unlikely as it may seem now, there was a time when Sepultura were held in high esteem by extreme metal fans the world over. Thrashers hung off every word Max and co. uttered, every note they played and every song they released. There were a few rarities floating around at the time. The band had recorded a track for the Dead Kennedys' tribute album 'Virus 100'. There was the odd live bootleg doing the tape trading rounds. And most difficult to find for those without connections in Brazil, a cover of Motörhead's 'Orgasmatron' was being played on Brazilian radio.

Being the independent, music–for–music's–sake label we know they are (please don't miss the sarcasm in that statement), Roadrunner gathered together a few Sepultura goodies for their 1992 tour to Australia and New Zealand, and then released them to just those two countries.

Anyway, those fortunate enough to be located in Australasia at the time managed to pick up a real gem. The five–song 'Third World Posse' EP kicks off with "Dead Embryonic Cells", one of the better tracks from 'Arise'. The track is refined from the death/thrash fury of 'Beneath The Remains' into a sharper, more focused sound.

Next is a hardcore hyperblast through the Dead Kennedys' "Drug Me". Incomprehensible as the original is, Sepultura actually slow it down a little, beef it up a lot, but gain absolutely no more clarity.

The final three tracks are pulled from Sepultura's excellent live video 'Under Siege', recorded in Barcelona in 1991. The sound quality is faultless, but is still definitely live, with the crowd chanting out of time, and Max's crap stage banter intact. Both "Inner Self" and "Troops Of Doom" seem to come across with more warmth and life in the live situation than they do on the studio albums.

Closer "Orgasmatron" is a cover version classic. While it does not sound like a song Sepultura would have written at the time because of the simple riff and song structures, it is infinitely heavier than the original. The mid–pace tempo of the song allows the rhythm guitar to build to mountainous proportions, and Igor Cavalera punctuates the song with seemingly effortless double kick drum fills and rolls.

Short and to the point, this has all been re–released on albums elsewhere. If nothing else, it documents a time when the band Sepultura held the metal world in its grasp, before tribalism, before dumbing down, before the split, before irrelevance.

SEPULTURA Sepultura - Live in Sao Paulo

Movie · 2005 · Groove Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Sepultura have a good few options if you are into live material. There is the Chaos DVD with the Under Siege video on it with the band touring Arise and playing all their Thrash era songs. There is the Under A Pale Grey Sky cd with the last ever gig of the Max Cavelera line-up on it, playing a lot of material off of Roots and Chaos AD. There is the newer Rock In Rio DVD with the Les Tambors Du Bronx percussion group augmenting them. There’s also plenty of live material on bonus tracks and compilations.

Best of all however, is Sepultura Live In Sao Paulo. It was the first video album with the Derick Green line-up, the first time you got to see and not just hear live versions of material from Roots and Chaos AD and its the only place to hear straight up unaltered versions of material off the Derick Green albums. It was released in 2005 when they were touring Roorback, back when they were still a Gold-selling band.

You get to hear an amazing blend (21 songs!) of material all the way from their earliest EPs and albums with early material like ‘Necromancer’ and ‘Troops Of Doom’ beside the mega-hits from the ’90s like ‘Territory’ and ‘Roots Bloody Roots’ mixed in with more modern gems like ‘Choke’ and what has to be one of the band’s best ever songs in ‘Sepulnation.’ (For me, its in the top 5 songs they ever recorded, any era).

Visually, the album is great. Its really well shot and edited, with no fancy distracting weird camera angels or lenses and no too-fast music video style choppy cuts. The stage set up and tasteful circle of lighting around their tribal ‘S’ logo banner looks really great, and the soundjob and mix are perfect. Sometimes the guitars or the vocals can be too quiet in a live recording, or some times the drums have way too much reverb, or sometimes you can’t hear the crowd’s energy; but here everything is perfectly balanced hear and it all sounds thick and chunky.

The band’s performances are excellent and it really shows off what great musicians they are. I never ‘got’ how good a drummer Igor is until I saw this! I didn’t much care for Derrick Green as a frontman before I saw this an it utterly changed my mind.

It looks great, it sounds great, the tracklist is great and the band play great. What more could you possibly want? Oh well, if you still do want more there is an absolute tonne of extras, with music videos, more live songs, a short making of documentary and biography, a bigger documentary about the band from 1998–2005 and other stuff as well (photogalleries etc.)

Overall; this is a damn strong release from a very important band, and there’s so much on it its great value for money. If like me you were skeptical on them without Max in the band, go on youtube and check out live versions of tracks like ‘Chaos AD’ and especially ‘Sepulnation’ off of this and just try not to be converted! If you are new to the band altogether this is a great starting point blending the best parts of all the eras together.
