Sepultura...'89-'93

Sepultura are one of the finest metal and thrash act to come out of the 80's. Their early material was at the dawn of death metal and thrasm metal. Metallica and Slayer were paving the way for many and Sepultura awoke from their lair in Brazil and nearly owned the whole metal scene by the time these three records came along. While Metallica and Slayer seemed less and less urgen, Sepultura was still building steam into an incredible turmoil of metal mayhem. Their anger and agression at politics and world views has remained steadfast and true even to their landmark Roots album. Admittedly though, with Roots, and even Chaos A.D., Sepultura helped usher in an altogether new beast in the metal scene known as Nu-Metal. Aside from the obvious downfall of metal for the next few years, and maybe even possibly due to it, these three albums remained as high water marks for the metal scene ever since.

Sure hardcore bands were killing it with metal all over the place during the nineties. I am not saying Sepultura is the last great metal band. The best part was while the nu metal scene was growing, hardcore was getting heavier and faster, thanks to people growing up with Slayer, Sepultura and Metallica.

Amazing albums, three of the best ones ever by the band, the Max Cavalera days were the best days.
