* IAmTheBand: Andreas Kisser is Sepultura. It used to be the Cavalera brothers of Max and Igor, who co-founded the band. Then Max quit in 1996, which left Igor in control. Then Igor quit in 2006, so since then, Andreas has taken control and been behind much of Sepultura's songwriting and composition, as well as appearing the most in the band's press conferences.



** ''A-Lex'' had them settling on a sound that fused all of their various sounds over the years except their earliest BlackMetal stuff into a fairly coherent (and heavy) whole, which they've more-or-less stuck with to this day.

* [[WordSaladTitle Word Salad Titles]] [[WordSaladLyrics And Lyrics]]: The band initially didn't know much English, and even now can be really poor speakers. So they let Max, who knew the most English, name their songs by using a Portuguese-English dictionary. Thus we got "Show Me the Wrath", "From the Past Comes the Storms" (or its demo title, "[[{{Engrish}} The Past Reborns the Storms]]"), "Septic Schizo", "Sarcastic Existence" and some others.
** Also "Ratamahatta", even though it's sung mostly in Portuguese.

The band was formed in 1984 by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, who drew influences at first from popular eighties metal and rock bands like Music/IronMaiden, Music/{{Motorhead}}, Music/{{ACDC}}, Music/JudasPriest and Music/VanHalen, but later on expanded into more extreme metal acts like Music/{{Venom}}, Music/{{Metallica}}, [[Music/ExodusBand Exodus]] and Music/{{Sodom}}. After some lineup difficulties, Sepultura obtained a record contract and released their debut ''Morbid Visions'' in 1986. Visions remains the only pure DeathMetal album the band ever released before their sound started evolving.

Lead guitarist Jairo Guedes lost interest in death metal soon afterwards and quit, replaced by Andreas Kisser. Not only did this create Sepultura's "classic lineup", but it also changed their sound as Kisser brought in more influences apart from death metal. With ''Schizophrenia'', the band switched to a hybrid of ThrashMetal and DeathMetal that earned them critical acclaim. Also around this time they began making waves in the USA, moving to metal label Roadrunner Records and touring the hell out of ''Schizophrenia'' and ''Beneath the Remains''.

Recorded in the USA, their 1991 album ''Arise'' increased their popularity and showed the band's first exploration of other genres while still keeping their thrash/death sound. The real change came with ''Chaos A.D.'' two years later. On Chaos, Sepultura ditched the thrash/death fusion and instead dove headfirst into GrooveMetal, combining Igor's groove-laden rhythms with churning riffs and a [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre stew]] that included IndustrialMetal, HardcorePunk and Brazilian percussion. Thanks to Andy Wallace's heavy production and several successful singles ("Refuse/Resist", "Territory", "Slave New World"), ''Chaos'' became the band's breakthrough album, earning both commercial and critical success. Their similarly-acclaimed followup ''Music/{{Roots}}'' was yet another change in sound (NuMetal this time) that also placed emphasis on Brazilian percussion (supplied by Carlinhos Brown) and featured a collaboration with members of the Brazilian Xavante Indian tribe, as well as appearances by [[Music/{{Korn}} Jonathan Davis]], [[Music/LimpBizkit DJ Lethal]], and [[Music/FaithNoMore Mike Patton]].

Max Cavalera left the band shortly after the album's release in 1996, for still unclear reasons, and instead formed his own band, Music/{{Soulfly}}. He was replaced by Derrick Green. The new Sepultura lineup predictably created a BrokenBase and carried on with modestly acclaimed but poorer-selling albums like ''Against'', ''Nation'', ''Roorback'' and the ConceptAlbum ''Dante XXI''. Igor himself left the band in 2006.

Max and Igor later got back together to form a new band named Cavalera Conspiracy which has caused an even more BrokenBase as fans are now divided as to which band is the real Sepultura and which is the EvilKnockoff which is further confounded by the fact that Sepultura's music is almost unanimously agreed upon by fans to have improved in recent years.

Quick, name the biggest-selling musical act that's ever emerged from UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}. Antonio Carlos Jobim? Nice try. Milton Nascimento? Nope. Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso and so on? Not even close. It's actually a HeavyMetal band named '''Sepultura'''.
