It might seem like a long time ago now, but there was a moment in the mid-90s where it genuinely looked like Sepultura might be about to become the next big crossover metal band. Their trajectory from underground thrash to grimy death to hulking groove metal and, finally, embracing the zeitgeist of bouncy nu metal had seen the Brazilian band achieve chart success that had only been bettered by a small handful of high-profile peers at that point: the likes of Metallica, Pantera, Slayer and Megadeth.
