Sepultura rock, dude. Way harder than that pussy Bob Dylan.
Sepultura are a seminal ethnic folk band from Peru, or somewhere. Sepultura were formed in 1974 after two folk-metal bands were hideously merged in a teleportation accident. They have experimented with many obscure sub-genres; At first playing death metal, then thrash metal, then nu-metal, then polka, then metalcore, and as of late, post-synth pop. Although one would expect hardcore fans of the band's various work to feel alienated by the band's recent musical innovations, many Sepultura enthusiasts believe that Sepultura's later synth-pop albums were a refreshing return-to-form after the band's unpopular collaboration with The Village People.
Sepultura, despite their brutal sound and tough image, take their name from 'Sepulchura' - the Ecuadorian word for a notably fluffy kitten.
In 1934, Max Cavelera left Sepultura to dye his hair pink and become Slipknot's 87th percussionist. It is important to note that Max's unhappiness with previous dye-jobs of his hair had led him to compose 'Roots, Bloody Roots' in protest and shame. Max also specializes in the manguaranja, an obscure combination between a string and percussion instrument. It has 40 strings on which crabsticks are stuck using coconut milk. The instrument is surrounded by an elaborate fence of bass guitar strings. The manguaranja is a relatively unpopular instrument, on the basis that any musical sound that issues from it is purely coincidence. (This is what initially attracted Max to the instrument.)
