One of the most influential albums of all time within extreme metal, that not only was one of, if not THE most brutal album up until 1987 when it originally came out. Not only did it put South America on the Metal-map in an unforgettable way, it also played a major part in the early days of Death and Black Metal, as well as inspiring the War Metal sub-genre. This album is as raw and brutal as they come, and a mandatory part of every serious extreme Metal collection!

Sarcófago is easily one of the most important bands in Black/Death Metal. Their influence can be felt the world over in songs, albums, bands, and entire scenes. 

Sarcófago was a band that always had been surrounded by mystery and controversy. Wagner Antichrist began as a member of Sepultura. But his stay in that band was short lived. After leaving that band, Antichrist decided to form the most brutal and agony-ridden band he could muster; thus began Sarcófago. From the onset, the band’s attitude, image, songs, and lyrics drove home the utter repudiation of the Christian faith, all its idols and anything that could ever be derivative of it. The band also unveiled the ugly realities of the human psyque through the notion of hidden sex desires, and the raw truth of Brazil’s dysfunctional and elitist society of the 80s.

The band was created in 1985, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Antichrist, was the singer; Incubus played the bass, Butcher was the guitar player and D.D. Crazy played the drums. The musical agenda involved lightning-fast drumming (INRI was one of the first Metal albums to ever contain blast beats), dirty and ugly riffing and an agonizing Death/Black Metal vocal delivery.

Sarcófago’s first two songs, which are considered classics today, were included in the “Warfare Noise I” compilation (1986), along with Mutilator, Chakal and Holocausto. But it wasn’t until INRI came along that the band’s name starting flowing worldwide. Songs such as Satanas and Nightmare are mainstays of Black Metal.
