OVERVIEW

_Beneath the Remains_ had improved production and songwriting compared to the band's previous albums. In time it would be acclaimed as a classic in the thrash metal genre. According to vocalist Max Cavalera, Sepultura had "really found style" on that album.

COVER ART

This was their first album to feature a Michael Whelan cover art. There was a bit of controversy surrounding the cover art used for this album. Sepultura had initially planned on using another Michael Whelan cover art, _Bloodcurdling Tales of Horror and the Macabre_. Igor Cavalera had even gone so far as to get part of the painting tattooed on his arm. However, Roadrunner Records convinced Sepultura to use _Nightmare in Red_ as they felt it was better suited for _Beneath the Remains_. Monte Conner of Roadrunner later sent the original artwork to Obituary, who used it on their album, _Cause of Death _, which was released a year after _Beneath the Remains_. For years after the incident, Igor Cavalera was upset with Monte Conner for giving away their album cover.

PRODUCTION

Max Cavalera travelled to New York in February 1988 and spent a whole week negotiating with the Roadrunner label. Although they offered a 7-record deal to Sepultura, the label was unsure of the band's sale potential. The album's budget was a small amount by the label's standards ($8,000), but in the end the cost was almost twice its original budget.

Scott Burns , who had previously engineered records by Florida
Florida
death metal acts Obituary , Death and Morbid Angel , was the chosen producer. Burns agreed to work for a low fee ($2,000) because he was curious about Brazil. Sepultura spent the last half of December 1988 recording the album at _Nas Nuvens Studio_ in Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro
, from 8 pm to 5 am. Burns had brought some audio equipment and amps to Brazil (A rare item for production standards at the time) which helped to improve the sound quality.
