Despite being Brazil’s biggest-ever heavy music export, when SEPULTURA lost its original frontman and founder Max Cavalera in 1996, and Max‘s brother and drummer Igor Cavalera in 2006, many thought the band would not recover from their departures. However, in Cleveland, Ohio punk and hardcore scene veteran Derrick Green, SEPULTURA found a formidable, towering force that would lead the band with power and conviction through this new era of their career.
“Sepulnation: The Studio Albums 1998-2009”, released through BMG on October 22, celebrates the bands seconds phase, and this five-album boxset (across eight slabs of vinyl or five CDs) contains the albums “Against”, “Nation”, “Roorback”, “Dante XXI” and “A-Lex”, all of which are half speed cut, remastered and back on 180-gram vinyl for the first time in a decade and also as a collector’s CD box. In addition, the “Roorback” album features the rare “Revolusongs” EP, which is available for the first time digitally and saw the band celebrate their influences with covers of bands as musically broad as DEVO, EXODUS, U2 and MASSIVE ATTACK.
Any fans who feared that this new lineup of SEPULTURA would see the band taming its intense and heavy approach were not left disappointed when “Against” came out of the traps in 1998. With the powerhouse that is Igor Cavalera still on drums (he remained for four of the five albums), Andreas Kisser‘s grinding guitars and bassist Paulo Jr.‘s heavy bottom end powered behind Derrick Green‘s guttural roar and SEPULTURA sounded heavier and more forceful than ever. This period would see the band continue to push their sound forward and challenge new sounds and styles, but they never lost sight of what was the core of the band. The righteous, rebellious nature remained with the 1998 album “Nation” calling for “one nation, Sepulnation,” — a rallying cry that stayed with the band throughout their long and challenging career.
“Sepulnation: The Studio Albums 1998-2009” brings the focus back on a period of the band that may have been missed by early supporters and shows that the fire continued to burn bright throughout.
“It’s an honor and privilege to be a part of SEPULTURA‘s history,” states Green.
“I’m proud of all the work we have done together and it only makes sense to have this box set format released for the fans to have the complete history of SEPULTURA. Long live the Sepulnation!”
