Versus: SEPULTURA and Max Cavalera Cover CHICO SCIENCE and NAÇÃO ZUMBI

In an interesting twist to the SEPULTURA saga, the band recently released their music video for their cover of CHICO SCIENCE and NAÇÃO ZUMBI‘s “Da Lama Ao Caos.”  Guitarist Andreas Kisser is on lead vocals.  The cover also appears on the band’s latest album, The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart.

Interestingly enough, Max Cavalera, following his resignation from SEPULTURA, covered the same song albeit with NAÇÃO ZUMBI 18 years earlier.  It should be noted that SOULFLY‘s first lead guitarist was actually NAÇÃO ZUMBI’s Jackson Bandeira.

Both covers are interesting for many different reasons and it’s likely a coincidence that both parties covered the same song, which undoubtedly is a well known song by a well known Brazilian band.

“Our relationship with NAÇÃO ZUMBI is very cool,”  commented guitarist Andreas Kisser. “When SEPULTURA was starting to use Brazilian percussion, CHICO SCIENCE was emerging at the same time, doing almost the opposite. While we were incorporating Brazilian music into the weight of heavy metal, they were adding the weight of rock guitars into the unique sounds of Pernambuco’s regional music. The song ‘Da Lama Ao Caos’ is an example of that.”
