The Brazilian metal legends – who were founded by the Cavalera brothers back in 1984 – will perform at the Styrian capital’s p.p.c. on 16 August, it has been confirmed. The band, now fronted by Derrick Green (picture copyright: http://www.sepultura.com), look back on several shows in Austria over the years. They played at various festivals but also smaller venues such as the Szene club in Vienna in July 2011.
Fans can brace for a firework of hits since Green does not shy away from performing tracks like from the band’s celebrated early albums “Chaos A.D.” and “Roots”. The gifted vocalist has never wasted a thought on the constant comparisons with his predecessor Max Cavalera – in opposite to the press. It seems that, slowly but surely, metal maniacs have stopped reminiscing about the good old days of Sepultura too. Instead, a majority appears to appreciate the new spirit Green created by joining them in 1997.
Sepultura – who released “Kairos” to wide critical acclaim last year – also scheduled for a gig at the Backstage club in Munich (30 July). Five days later, they will perform at the Fezen Festival taking place in the Hungarian city of Szekesfehervar before hitting the stage at the Summer Breeze Festival in Dinkelsbühl near Nuremberg on 18 August. Metal giants such as Iced Earth and Lacuna Coil will co-headline the 15th meditation of the popular event.
