A valid argument could be made that the two most original and groundbreaking metal bands of the ‘90s were Sepultura and Fear Factory – the former due to their blend of manic riffing and influences from their native Brazil, and the latter with their razor-precise riffing and metronome-perfect rhythms.

And from August 2021, former Sepultura singer/guitarist Max Cavalera and Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares will join forces on tour in the band that Cavalera has been leading since the late ‘90s, Soulfly.
