Sepultura

Sepultura is a heavy metal band from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, formed in 1984 by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera. The band was a major force in the death metal and thrash metal realms during the late 1980s and early 1990s, and their later experiments melding hardcore punk, industrial music, and nu metal with extreme metal provided a blueprint for the groove metal genre. Their most successful records are Arise (1991), Chaos A.D. (1993), and Roots (1996), each of them having surpassed the one million mark worldwide. Sepultura has sold over 15 million units worldwide, gaining multiple gold and platinum records across the globe, including in countries as diverse as France, Australia, Indonesia, United States, Cyprus, and their native Brazil.

In 2005, the band played in Dubai for the annual Dubai Desert Rock Festival. The band released their 11th studio album “A-Lex” on January 26, 2009, being the first album without any Cavalera member. It is a new concept album based on the book A Clockwork Orange, which was recorded at Trama Studios in São Paulo, Brazil, with producer Stanley Soares.
