This album started an unholy obsession with both Sepultura and Michael Whelan’s art. I was actually put onto the band from the standout track Refuse/Resist, after seeing it used as the soundtrack for the Manga video promo seen below.
On the inside was the first time I had seen the Supultura logo. Which would have looked better on the cover as a spot varnish rather than the grungy font they used. But alas I wasn’t the designer of the cover.
I even have a T-Shirt from 1994 with this artwork on it and it’s looking pretty worn right now.
