Sepultura has "enjoyed" a very spotty reputation among fans since the late 1990s when founding vocalist Max Cavalera left and was replaced by Derrick Green. After all, their first six albums -- especially the trilogy that began with Schizophrenia and ended with 1991's Chaos A.D. -- are universally regarded as definitive thrash metal offerings. Later outings were saturated in groove metal or so experimental listeners had a tough time hanging on.
Co-founded in 1984 by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, Sepultura soon put themselves on the map of the global metal scene with their unique Afro-Brazilian groove metal, as epitomised by the unrivalled albums 'Chaos A. D. ' and 'Roots'.
