Sepultura Schizophrenia on Colored 180g LP
Newly Reissued Vinyl from the Roadrunner Records Catalog
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
It was the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil that launched the ascent of native sons Sepultura (Portuguese for “grave”) in 1983 with a trajectory unsuspectingly aimed at the worldwide metal music scene. A band with humble economic beginnings whose musical identity was forged in the context of living through Brazil’s authoritarian military dictatorship, Sepultura would go on to become Brazilian ambassadors to the metal world, revered master architects of the death/thrash genre, and the most successful heavy metal band from the Federal Republic of Brazil.
1987's Schizophrenia - Sepultura's second album following 1986 debut Morbid Visions - exploded onto the metal scene fueled by the fusion of thrash and death metal, improved songwriting and musicianship, and the band's first professional quality production. Sepultura's move into more complex territory had a lot to do with the addition of classically trained lead guitarist Andreas Kisser who rounded out the group's sound with traditional heavy metal flourishes and a more melodic style. Killer death/thrash metal from the past!
