Brazilian-based metal crew Sepultura helped redefine thrash in the early ’90s and usher in nu-metal in the mid ’90s, but their glory days are long behind them. The group’s original creative force, frontman Max Cavalera, departed in 1997, and his brother Igor–the group’s last original member–followed suit in 2006. In fact, Max’s replacement, Cleveland-born singer Derrick Green, has actually been in Sepultura longer than Max at this point. But none of that stopped the band from performing their 1991 Cavalera album Arise in its entirety a few months ago. Caveat emptor. With Belphegor, Hate, Keep of Kalessin, Neuraxis, and Bonded By Blood.
