"SARCOFAGO-"I.N.R.I."(1986) is one of those albums that even many supposed "metal experts" have never heard. This is unfortunate because from my perspective "I.N.R.I." is the first true black metal album. It is more brutal(and recorded better) than both of Bathory's first two albums, faster and more demonic than either Celtic Frost or Hellhammer, and far more evil than early Sodom or Destruction. SARCOFAGO, from Brazil, even predates early black thrashers like Minotaur, Necrodeath, Morbid Saint, and arguably, Slaughter Lord. SARCOFAGO's drumming is fast and like early blast-beats(think of Krisiun but a little slower), the guitar work was like Slayer gone even more insane(blended with riff work similar to that on Sepultura's "Bestial Devastation" EP), and vocal wise, SARCOFAGO was like a blend of early Sepultura, "Endless Pain"-era Kreator, and hardcore punk like Extreme Noise Terror, Crude SS, or early RDP(also from Brazil). The production on SARCOFAGO-"I.N.R.I." is excellent, and in my opinion, one of the best in black metal history. The LP is short like a hardcore LP and blugeons the listener in ways many of today's supposed "black metal" LP's don't even come close to. Overall, SARCOFAGO should be considered a CLASSIC early black/thrash band, not a CULT band. As black metal becomes more popular it is becoming far more evident that SARCOFAGO were ahead of their time and of great influence. JUST LOOK AT THE LP COVER(on the original Cogumelo version, NOT the Pavement reissue)!!!! Now THAT is a black metal cover image!!! So sit back, smoke a joint, get evil, and worship the original gods of black metal, SARCOFAGO!!!!!"
Sarcofago's brutal, classic debut!!!

"Back in the mid 80's, South America had one of the most promising Thrash/Death/Black metal scenes in the world. With promising acts such as Vulcano, Mutilator, Holocausto, Pentagram, Sepultura, and the brutal Sarcofago. Sarcofago were the leaders of the scene with their blasphemous "INRI" debut album. Light-years ahead of it's time it would go on to provide the basic blueprint for modern day Black Metal. This was released back in '86, it was and still is today ahead of it's time. Nobody ever made something as Extreme as this. Venom, Bathory, and may be Mercyful Fate had their 15 minutes of shock galore, but Sarcofago still remains, and are still around making more hate-filled music... If you thought Norwegin Black Metal was as ugly as you could get, think again. Sarcofago will rip your mind apart."

"This is one of the bands that helped make Blackmetal what it istoday. Euronymous of Mayhem likedSacofago because of the spikes andcorpsepaint that are typical of many BM bands today. The songs areall dripping with evilness and never get old. These guys are still around today and hopefully they will release a new album soon."
