Sepultura - Third World Posse (1994) Retail CD
Death Metal/ Black Metal
Arguably no band came closer to ascending Slayer's throne as metal's most extreme platinum-selling band — then didn't — than Brazil's Sepultura. As the 90's were dawning, the death metal quartet's string of landmark albums and legendary live performances had built to such careening momentum overseas, that a subsequent American conquest seemed to be both imminent and only natural. But circa 1992, following the emergence of Nirvana, Pearl Jam et al, heavy metal's popularity took a severe nose-dive; commercial trends smote the evil (faux-metal styles like glam and pop-metal) and righteousmore… (extreme genres like thrash and death metal) alike, and Sepultura and their like were exiled to the deserts of the underground once again. Into this harsh new reality, the Seps released their Third World Posse E.P., which centered around the smash single "Dead Embryonic Cells," whose controversial video had been famously banned by MTV for graphically depicting gas-mask-clad crucifixion victims. The band's frenzied cover of the Dead Kennedys' "Drug Me" was up next, and hinted at their rediscovery of the punk-rock ingredients, soon to be added to their follow-up album Chaos A.D.. And closing out the E.P. were three crushing live recordings of Sepultura crowd-pleasers: previous album single "Inner Self," old favorite "Troops of Doom" and the trusty Motorhead warhorse "Orgasmatron."
