Three Quarters Of SEPULTURA's 'Morbid Visions' Lineup Reunites On Stage In Belo Horizonte

Former SEPULTURA guitarist Jairo Guedz joined CAVALERA CONSPIRACY on stage earlier tonight (Friday, November 16) at Music Hall in Belo Horizonte, Brazil to perform the early SEPULTURA classic "Troops Of Doom", a song that he co-wrote. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY is the band led by brothers and founding SEPULTURA members Max (also of SOULFLY) and Igor Cavalera.

A couple of photos taken at the gig, as well as a couple of pre-concert shots of Max and Jairo being interviewed together, can be seen below.

SEPULTURA was formed in 1984 in Belo Horizonte, the capital city of Minas Gerais. Jairo joined the group the following year and played on the band's first two releases, 1985's "Beastial Devastation" EP and their 1986 full-length debut, "Morbid Visions".

In early 1987, Jairo quit SEPULTURA after losing interest in playing death metal and was replaced by São Paulo-based guitarist Andreas Kisser.

In 1996, Max exited SEPULTURA after the rest of the band fired Max's wife Gloria as their manager.

Igor left SEPULTURA in June 2006 due to "artistic differences." His departure from the band came five months after he announced that he was taking a break from SEPULTURA's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son (who was born in January 2006).

After Max exited SEPULTURA, there was a rift between him and Igor, one that was eventually repaired through the redemptive power of music. Some time had passed and Max and Igor were unable to resist the musical pull in their magnetic fields and their musical collaboration was renewed. The duo are back for round two with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, which released its debut album, "Inflikted", in March 2008 and follow-up effort, Blunt Force Trauma", in March 2011.

Max and Igor played together for the first time in 10 years at the 10th annual D-Low Memorial Festival on August 17, 2006 at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona.
