Sarcofago

Sarcófago was an influential Brazilian extreme metal band. They were fronted by Sepultura's original singer, Wagner Lamounier, and Geraldo Minelli. They have been described as Brazil's most controversial metal band, and have frequently evoked polarized reactions among the metal scene.

Sarcófago was an influential Brazilian extreme metal band. They were fronted by Sepultura's original singer, Wagner Lamounier, and Geraldo Minelli. They have been described as Brazil's most controversial metal band, and have frequently evoked polarized reactions among the metal scene.

The front cover of the band's debut album, I.N.R.I., is regarded as the single greatest influence on black metal's image, especially over the corpse paint style make-up. That record is also considered one of the "first wave" albums that helped shape the genre. Their third LP, The Laws of Scourge, was one of the first technical death metal records to be released.

The band broke up in 2000, after releasing the Crust EP. Former members, minus Wagner, played throughout Brazil in 2006 under the moniker "Tributo ao Sarcófago". In 2009, rumors surfaced that the original I.N.R.I. line-up were reuniting for a small, high-profile tour, but proved to be false. « hide
