Ask any avowed thrash-metal fan, and they’ll tell you the same thing that we’re about to tell you: Sepultura’s major-label debut, BENEATH THE REMAINS, is a true classic of the genre and one of the best albums ever released by the Brazilian band. You can imagine, then, that the Sepultura fans out there will be ecstatic to learn that today’s the day that this iconic album hits stores in a deluxe edition, both as a 2-CD set and as a double-LP set on 180-gram vinyl.
In addition to a remastered version of the original album, BENEATH THE REMAINS: DELUXE EDITION includes nine previously-unreleased “mixdown” recordings taken from the original album sessions at Nas Nuvens Studios in Rio de Janeiro, along with previously-unreleased
unreleased recordings of a September 22, 1989 live performance at the Zeppelinhalle, West Germany. In addition to the band’s own songs, listeners also get to enjoy the band roaring through covers of Black Sabbath’s “Symptom Of the Universe” and the Dead Kennedys “Holiday In Cambodia.”
