Sepultura is a death metal band from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The band name, which means "grave" in English, was derived from the influential Motörhead album Dancing On Your Grave. In 1985, Sepultura released its debut EP, but it wasn't until after the original guitarist Wagner left the band that Sepultura found its true sound. With the addition of Andreas Kisser, the band pulled from more sophisticated thrash metal influences to create its hard-hitting trademark sound, which is perfectly captured on popular tracks like "Troops of Doom," "Refuse/Resist," "Ratamahatta" and "Roots Bloody Roots."
