Emerging at the same time as (and of course influenced by) Sodom, Destruction, and Slayer; Sepultura were not the original Brazilian thrash band but were on the first Cogumelo release and became hugely influential. The material on this CD (special mention to the split) is some of the best black-thrash from South America and there are only a couple of other records that match or improve on its undiluted perfection.
Contains Sepultura's side of the 1983 split with Overdose and the complete first LP from 1986.
Two bonus tracks: demo version of Necromancer and a useless politicised version of Antichrist - take the time to program it out of your player.
