MIXTAPE: Sepultura out of the ‘Grave’

Sepultura is Portuguese for the word grave. Time to dig up one of my favorite bands from high school.The finest Brazilian export.

This is almost entirely from the 1989-1996 era. For me, Sepultura is Max, his brother Igor, Andres (still in the band) and Paulo Jr., who is not only still in the band, he helped found it in 1984. Derrick “The American” Green (1997-current) makes a couple appearances in this mixtape, but there is really nothing he can do. He’s got a good voice and style, he’s just not Max. That will always be his legacy, and for a dude like me with a Sepultura history rooted to around 1991, it’s hard to overlook it.

I’ve got quite a few Kielbasage edits to the songs in this mix. As I’ve stated before, edits are my edits – used to improve the song, keep listener interest high and/or shorten in an attempt to get more songs played at a party. I’ve had some questions about the edits. But I’m not a big fan of blistering, boring guitar solos or songs that generally go north of the 5 minute mark. So I do what I gotta do. I am all about the groove in a song. Do yourself a favor. Next time you go to a live show, watch what happens when a band that plays a lot of solos rips into one. The crowd is totally moving, in the pocket with the rhythm riff and then – bam – it all comes to a stop when the guitar solo comes in. Everybody just stops and watches with their mouth agape. In awe of not his prowess, but how he just ruined the groove we were all in. Anyway, that is my take and why I edit songs. Don’t like it? Buy the originals.
