Sepultura  


Sepultura has risen from rather humble beginnings (their early albums being pretty basic affairs) to become one of the most well-known death/thrash metal bands of all time. During the band's definitive period (Beneath The Remains through Chaos AD) their potent mix of death and thrash metal gained them worldwide acclaim. They also showed they were willing to grow and develop new styles, as their other seminal work, Roots, mixed tribal rhythms and a slower, more down-tuned style with the aggression of their earlier albums.

In early 1997, a rift developed between guitarist Max Cavalera and the other members, apparently due in part to Max's wife's involvement with the band as a manager. Max left the band and formed Soulfly, while Sepultura carried on, recruiting a new vocalist by the name of Derrick Greene, and have released several albums since Roots (the latest being Dante XXI), continuing their popularity as a metal force. Finally, in June 2006, drummer Igor Cavalera followed his brother's footsteps, leaving the band, citing artistic differences. With both Cavaleras now out of the band, there are reports that the group may continue under a new name, though this has not yet been confirmed.
