This team from the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte, whose name in Portuguese means "grave", was formed in the first half of the 80-ies. His project, the brothers Cavalera, Max (b. 4 Aug 1969; vocals, guitar) and Igor (born September 24, 1970; drums), and after a number of shuffles with them in the ranks was the lead guitarist, Jairo Guedes (guitar) and bassist Paulo Pinto Sisto Junior (or simply Paulo Jr.). First opus "Sepultura" split "Bestial Devastation", made in half with the band "shaman" appeared in 1985. The CD was poor quality and not widely spread, but on such songs as the title track and "Antichrist" can be judged on band direction (satanic death metal). In 1986 came a real full-length Studio album, "Morbid Visions". This album is stuffed with powerful riffs, included the first hit, "Troops Of Doom", which became the hymn "Sepultura" for a long time. The album gave the group national prominence and a good opportunity to prove himself on tour. Guides soon left the team, and in its place came talented guitarist Andreas kisser. In 1987, he released the CD "Schizophrenia", which, thanks to the fighters of the type "Escape To The Void" and "Inquisition Symphony" and gorgeous production work proclaim to the world the birth of the Brazilian metal.
Style "Sepultura" has changed markedly, and the team made a bias towards thrash metal with the influence of "Slayer" and "Metallica". In Europe "Schizophrenia" came in the form of a bootleg, but the case was then put on a formal basis, and the team signed a contract with the Dutch branch of the "Roadrunner". Despite a limited budget, to produce the debut work of the group on this label was invited to the famous American brutalist Scott burns. The release of "Beneath The Remains", katapuljtirovalisj "gravediggers" in the higher League thrash metal, the team went to their first world tour, during which she had to share the stage with such monsters of heavy metal like "Metallica", "Motorhead" and "Sodom".
grave meanwhile at home "Sepultura" were national heroes and that is why the second festival "Rock In Rio" appeared in the status of the headliners. Unfortunately, the rapid success had a downside. At the concert in Sao Paulo, where the group performed in front of 40-thousand audience, killed one of the spectators, and because of this team for a long time no longer appeared on the Brazilian sites. Except the tragic occasion of a tour in support of "Arise" is successful, and "Sepultura" discovered such areas as Greece, Japan, Australia and Indonesia. In 1993, the band released the landmark album "Chaos A. D.", which diluted their brutal sound national Brazilian rhythms (the germs of this direction appeared on "Arise"). Special recognition was given to the song "Territory", the video for which won the "MTV Video Music Awards". Soon after "Sepultura" became the first Brazilian team to reach Russia and the first Latin American band that appeared at the festival "Monsters Of Rock" in Donington. On the next album, the band has continued to develop the national tribal vein that clearly indicated from the title – "Roots". Very popular here used the song "Roots Bloody Roots", "Attitude" and especially "Ratamahatta", the video for which was received at the Brazilian MTV award for "Best rock video".
Everything went well until the band Manager, who also was the wife of max, not dead son. Igor, Andreas and Paulo reacted to this with understanding and remaining contract gigs played together. Over time, however, the musicians and management have ceased to find common language, the situation escalated, and Max decided to leave the band. First, the vocals tried to execute Andreas, but for him it was too complicated. A long search for a frontman was successful only in 1998, when the team appeared to derrick green. He fit in the team, and although continuing ethno-style predecessors albums, "Against" and "Nation" had such commercial success as her previous works, fans of "Sepultura" attitude to the new soloist loyally.
grave Confirmation of the established popularity of the Brazilian team was the appearance at its sessions and concerts of figures such as Jason Newsted, Mike Patton and jello Biafra. In 2003 the group returned with a new contract from the "SPV" and Studio album "Roorback". The album received good reviews and entered the charts "Billboard", but sales remained at a low level. In November 2005, there appeared the first official live album, "Live In Sao Paolo" issued on both CD and DVD (in 2002-m "Roadrunner" threw in the sale is also recorded with max live "Under A Pale Grey Sky", but because it did, without the consent of the group, "Sepultura" has not included it in his discography). Four months later, the market entered the Studio album "Dante XXI". This album was not in vain, as he was inspired by "the divine Comedy" by Dante set forth by Brazilian musicians in thrash manner. Most critics recognized the "Dante XXI" the best work of the green period, but soon the band's fans waiting for a surprise. Between brothers Cavalier has been warming, and rumors about the reunion of classical composition "Sepultura". Max and Igor really reunited, but in the project "Cavalera Conspiracy", while "grave" became drummer Jean Dolabella.
In 2009, the updated team has released the second concept, "A-Lex", taking this time based on the book "a Clockwork orange". And although the album contained early thrash metal and later groove metal with hardcore elements, and a signature tribal percussion, the audience reacted to beschweren composition with suspicion. However, in the future, the students got used to the current state of Affairs, and when the band debuted at the "Nuclear Blast" with the program "Kairos", they don't even pay attention to manifested craving for Indastrial and put the album good ratings. Almost immediately after the release of Dolabella retreated, and the thirteenth Studio album with a surprisingly long title, "The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" tapped the young drummer Eloy Casagrande.
