Post #140 (Metal Monday #14): Sepultura - "We've Lost You"

Post #140 (Metal Monday #14):  I was excited to see that Sepultura is coming to Station 4 in St. Paul on May 18th.

How often do I get to see amazing metal bands from Brazil?  Not often.

Formed in Brazil by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera in 1984, their following is mainly outside of the U.S., selling 3 million albums here, but over 20 million worldwide.

Max (vocals) and Igor (drums) have since left the band, starting bands such as Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy, however the band carried on with a new vocalist from Ohio.

This is from their last album A-Lex, which was released in 2009.  It is a concept album based on the book A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.  The title, A-Lex, coming from the lead character's name, Alex, which in latin means 'without law'.

Their previous album, Dante XXI was also a concept album, based on Dante's The Divine Comedy.

I think metal heads are often times smarter than people give them credit for.
