Sepultura - Heavy Latin

How Sepultura got their band name - Rio Carnival 2010Brazilian heavy metal? Sure, that can be done - see Sepultura, a formation from the South American place Belo Horizonte that perfectly brings that genre to life.

Sepultura is the Portuguese word for 'grave', but that fact alone of course does not justify a mention in this encyclopedia. We therefore add that the band arrived at the idea when digging into and translating a song by Motörhead, Dancing On Your Grave.

Active: 1984-present, BRA
