Jairo Tormentor of Sepultura Interview Translated; Outs Abaddon from Venom

A interview with Jairo Tormentor who played lead guitar on Sepultura‘s legendary early, more blackened releases Bestial Devastation and Morbid Visions,was translated from Portuguese by a Reddit user named cantapaya and posted to the social justice warrior, autist, and Marxist infested dumpster. The two-part interview is incredibly extensive and entertaining.

Venom came without Mantas, so the band came with two other guitar players. So Abaddon and one of the guitar players were sitting at the couch. We didn’t think much of it, we were with Chronos and that’s what mattered. Then Paulo went “Jairão, look at that!”. I looked and Abaddon was making out with the guitar player. Paulo started freaking out saying “let’s get out of here, these gringos are crazy!”. [laughs] So we didn’t have much contact with those guys.

The first part covers:

  • The early Brazilian death and black metal scene
  • How Jairo met Max and Igor Cavalera
  • Sepultura’s earlier influences of Discharge, The Exploited, Slayer, Voivod, and Possessed.
  • How awful or non-existent Sepultura’s instruments were and how Igor substituted couch pillows for drums.
  • How Sepultura discovered that Abaddon from Venom is a homosexual.

The second covers:

  • The recording of Morbid Visions.
  • McDonald’s burgers
  • Tour stories
  • How Jairo left Sepultura and helped the band find his replacement, Andreas Kisser, for Schizophrenia.

    with Max acknowledging Raffan, and exactly something Rob wrote in ’88, such as the drummer’s cymbal was nailed on top of a broom handle!
    The band was really broke, really poor, when they first started, but scrounged up any equipment they could, as they were metal maniacs just dying to do something musically themselves.”

    So, basically, just like good At the Gates needed Alf Svensson, good Sepultura needed Jairo Tormentor.
    Everything from Schizophrenia on is mundane crap.
