Sepultura

Sepultura image provided by Last.fm Biography from Last.fm

Sepultura is a Brazilian metal band that formed in 1983 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The band was a major force in the death metal, thrash metal and ultimately groove metal realms during the late 1980s and early 1990s. 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 by Max Cavalera (guitars and vocals), his younger brother Igor Cavalera (drums), Paulo Pinto (bass) and Jairo Guedes (guitars). Read more on Last.fm

Zebrahead and the art of advertising “self-love” aids: Adam Graham from FACT is our man in Japan

October 15th, 2013

Here’s the second column from Adam Graham – the “token white guy” (his words, not ours) in Japanese mosh heroes, FACT. For content, our man in Japan is still banking on Japan being weirder than what you’re used to. It appears to be working. We’re hopeful of plenty more too…

Japan’s a funny old country. I don’t mean this in a sneering, xenophobic, “Oh, look at the silly foreigners,” kind of way – I am extremely fortunate to live here and enjoy the hospitality of the country and its people. What I mean is that from a completely objective standpoint a lot of things go down here that seem to teeter on the edge of sanity.

I’m talking Pepsi-flavoured Cheetos and nightmare-inducing “cute” mascots (can you guess what this fella is selling?!). Oh and hey, you’re worried about a little bit of horsemeat finding its way into your hamburger? What about if it found its way into your ice cream? ON PURPOSE.

Why have I just spent 2 minutes of my life watching Sepultura grease themselves up?

July 19th, 2010

…because it’s all part of a tour diary Sepultura made while playing in Sète, a town in the south of France, earlier this month, that’s why. Why exactly are they all greasing each other off? Well, if you put a Brazilian metal band next to the Mediterranean Sea at the height of summer, you can’t expect them to not go down the beach, now can you?

EXCLUSIVE: Roadrunner United DVD clip

November 24th, 2008

andreas kisser roadrunner united dvd thrash hits

Back at the tail end of 2005, Roadrunner Records turned 25 years of age and decided that it might be a good idea to have a party.

That party involved a collective of Roadrunner artists from the past and present partying live, onstage at the Nokia Theater in Times Square in New York City on December 15, 2005. That’s some party.
