Thrashback Thursday: “Refuse/Resist” By Sepultura

Sepultura Band Photo Max and Igor

With the anthemic call-to-arms opening track of their fifth album, 1993’s Chaos A.D., here is Sepultura.

Watch the official video for “Refuse/Resist” here below.

Hailing from Brazil and led by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, the band broke new ground and paved the way for many bands that would follow in their footsteps. AllMusic declared Chaos A.D. one of the best heavy metal albums of all time, calling it “a remarkable achievement not only in its concentrated power and originality, but also in the degree to which Sepultura eclipsed their idols in offering a vision of heavy metal’s future.” To me, the same could be said of each and every one of the first six albums that the band issued.

Guardians of the Galaxy dancing baby groot

Today, I did an early morning workout to the sounds of thrash metal band Sepultura. A few hours later, I get a message about “Groots Bloody Groots,” a parody of the Sepultura song “Roots Bloody Roots” as if sung by Groot from Guardians Of The Galaxy. If you know about Guardians, then you know what Groot always says — I am Groot!

You can check out the video here below for “Groots Bloody Groots,” which contains footage of Dancing Groot from the Guardians film along with excessive headbanging as well as the lyrics so you can sing along!

Black Metal Friday: ‘Screeches From the Silence’ By Sarcafago

Sarcafago Band Photo

Hailing from Brazil, Sarcafago was one of the first wave of black metal bands. Led by original Sepultura singer Wagner “Antichrist” Lamounier, they were perhaps the first black metal band in the Americas. The band built on inspiration from early European black metal pioneers such as Venom and Bathory. Their debut album, INRI, is hailed as a defining moment in the genre. The cover art for the record helped to establish the visual aesthetics of the genre, including the use of corpse-paint, leather jackets, and bullet belts. The band existed from 1985-2000 and reunion rumors persist, though Lamounier remains adamant that the band is over for good.

From their second studio album, The Laws of Scourge (1991), here is “Screeches from the Silence.”

Cavalera Conspiracy Announce Third Album ‘Pandemonium’ Coming In October

Igor and Max Cavalera

Max Cavalera is probably the hardest working guy in metal these days. Just this year, the former leader of Sepultura toured with his band, Soulfly, in support of their latest album Savages; released another absolutely stellar self-titled album with his supergroup, Killer Be Killed; published his autobiography, My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura to Soulfly and Beyond, and did a book tour to promote it; and, somehow, found the time to jam with Suicide Silence on the Sepultura classic “Roots” at this year’s Revolver Golden Gods Awards (video is here below!).

Now comes the announcement, through Blabbermouth, that one of Cavalera’s other bands, Cavalera Conspiracy, will be releasing their third album in October. The group reunites Max and his brother, Igor Cavalera. Both brothers were founding members of the ground-breaking Brazilian metal juggernaut, Sepultura. When Max left the band acrimoniously in 1997, Igor stayed behind as their drummer. This caused strained relations between the two until Igor also left Sepultura in 2007. Their reconciliation lead to the formation of Cavalera Conspiracy, which has produced two albums that mirror the brutality of their early work with Sepultura.

When The Shat Hits The Fans: William Shatner To Receive ‘Honorary Headbanger Award’

Revolver Golden Gods

Spock may not think the merging of Shatner and Metal to be a logical one — but at this point in 2011, William Shatner is becoming more metal than ever. And even at his age of 80, there seems to be no stopping the once Captain of the USS Enterprise, for this year he will be releasing a metal album, as we reported on several weeks ago. To acknowledge his efforts not only towards his current album project, entitled Seeking Major Tom, but also for his entire epic career, William Shatner will next month be awarded the Honorary Headbanger Award at the annual Revolver Awards.

The Revolver Golden Gods is an awards ceremony to recognize all metal, held every year. The Honorary Headbanger Award is handed out to someone who is not necessarily seen as being in the metal community, but embodies the spirit of metal. With his upcoming album featuring collaborative efforts with numerous metal artists, and his long career in Star Trek and acting in other roles over the years, Shatner is an artist of determination who continually breaks down the doors of what people think he should do (or if people just think it to be… odd).

Dio Holy Diver

With just a few more days left til the end of February, now’s the time to get in on Amazon’s $5.00 MP3 album deal of the month for February 2011: 100 Albums For $5.

Here’s some of my favorite picks from the 100 albums on sale: Dio‘s first album Holy Diver; John Lennon‘s Imagine; Pat Benatar‘s Crimes Of Passion; and Fugazi‘s 13 Songs. There’s plenty of other selections from other genres (I saw some R. Kelly, Lil Wayne, Lenny Kravitz, Usher, The Judds, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, The Smiths, Violent Femmes, Frank Sinatra, and many more.)

There’s also a $.69 Song Sale (they are typically $.99 each) where thousands of songs are discounted. You can go to the main page and then view by genre from the list on the left — there’s 102 hard rock/heavy metal songs to choose from (you know that’s my area) from bands like Megadeth, Accept, Sepultura, Tesla, Free, and Corrosion Of Conformity. (If you’re into Latin music, there’s over 1,155 tunes.)

Digital Deal: Bryan Adams ‘Reckless’ For $1, ‘The Yes Album’ For $6 + Free Songs

Most of you who’ve read me for a while already know that I’m a true metal warrior and have been since childhood. But every so often, I get nostalgic for music that was popular when I was young — stuff I really didn’t listen to at the time. That’s why I just purchased the MP3 version of the Bryan Adams album Reckless, which is available for a limited time for only $.99.

Besides the fact that it’s only a buck, this album, which blazed up the charts in 1985, contained hits like “Heaven,” “Summer of ’69,” “Run To You,” and “Somebody” and you know you know these songs. I mean, in 1985 I was in junior high school already going to see Iron Maiden and even I knew all these songs, even if I didn’t own the album (matter of fact, I didn’t even know the name of the album til just now) — but the songs were always on the radio. I actually got to see Bryan Adams when he played with Def Leppard a few summers ago at the ballpark near my house (a great place to see a show and cheap too!). And you know what, Bryan Adams totally rocked. Who wouldn’t thunk? Anyhow, for 99 cents, you can swing this purchase.

Here’s another steal: The Yes Album by Yes for only $5.94 — that’s less than a buck a song. Yes, it’s only 6 songs, but they go on forever, you’ll really get your money’s worth. This album is up there as one of the best classic rock albums of all time — seriously, there’s not one mediocre song on it. For those of you who know a little Yes, this is the album with “I’ve Seen All Good People” on it; for those of you who only know them from their hit “Owner Of A Lonely Heart,” the songs on The Yes Album are about 1,000 times better than that.

These are great deals, but guess what? Amazon actually has like 500 mp3 songs available for FREE download. Now, I know what you think Free = Shit. But not so! I downloaded like 15 free songs, and I’m really picky about my music. I’m sure the average person would probably like at least 50 of them.
