I remember the first time I heard Sepultura. I was still in high school at the time. A friend happened to have a demo tape of a band from Brazil and it was death metal (this was before Sepultura was signed to a major label). He popped in the cassette, I put the headphones on my ears and pushed play- and once the music started, my ears were bombarded, they didn't know what to do. I was suddenly assaulted with this brutal music and I can honestly say, my head felt like it was spinning. What an experience.
Fast forward to today, seeing Selputura play live is just as exciting. The onslaught of their brand of music is a welcome. I can scratch one off the my bucket list of bands to see live. And they deliver. Even after 30 years, they still sound fresh with their new album Machine Messiah, letting fans know they are still just as brutal. If you have a chance, see them live. You won't regret it. In fact, you'll be thankful.
