Brazilian thrash metal legends Sepultura have announced a campaign on Kickstarter to fund a band documentary. The film, which has been in a work in progress for the past few years, is said to chronicle the highs and lows of the band's entire nearly thirty year history, including tours, economic problems and personal conflicts. An excerpt from the Kickstarter page reads as follows:

"Finally: The long awaited documentary about Sepultua’s incredible journey from Brazil to the world. Filmmaker Otavio Juliano has been following Sepultura for the better part of 2010-2013, a time of tension and triumph for the band, as they toured and recorded their album Kairos. Nothing has been off-limits. This amazing story will go through Sepultura’s history, myths, conflicts, personnel changes and struggles with the Internet economy in the early 2000s as well interviews and rare footage. This documentary is certain to bring fans closer to the band they love.

"About 50% of the film has been shot so far. We have witnessed this historic band experiencing wrenching transformations and unprecedented growth. We opened Sepultura's vault and dig into the best rare and unseen footage of the last 30 years. We will see them at their most vulnerable and human, and also as idols of the heavy metal genre. Those elements make the overall film an uncommonly powerful statement."

To Cartman (or, should I say, post #1?): You bumped an article that's about 2 and a half weeks old, what are you a f***ing retard? The reason no one has been commenting on this article is because there are some people out here that don't care about Sepultura without Max.

Hey, f*** Your God, just because I didn't comment on this article when it was published weeks ago doesn't mean I'm a retard and it doesn't mean that I don't care about Sepultura without Max. I like both the Max-era and Derrick-era.
