Sepultura was a Brazilian Thrash/ Death metal band, formed in 1984. Their name means "grave" in Portuguese, which they chose after Max Cavalera, one of the founding members, was translating the lyrics of the Motörhead song "Dancing on Your Grave". Sepultura was formed in Belo Horizonte in 1984 by Max Cavalera (guitars and vocals), his younger brother Igor Cavalera (drums), Paulo Pinto (bass) and Jairo Guedes (guitars). Sepultura signed to Cogumelo Records after a few years of performing. Their first EP was Bestial Devastation, a split with Overdose's album on the flipside.
