Sepultura's "Beneath The Remains" Turns 25


Monte Conner, Roadrunner's longtime A&R wizard, recalls negotiating with former label head Cees Wessels over money: “The budget for Beneath the Remains was only $8,000 but we soon realized that was way too little to make a competitive-sounding record using an American producer...I gotCees Wessels to approve a $13,000 budget, which was a very large sum for us at the time. It was supposed to be an eight-song record, but the band came to me at the last minute and told me that they had a strong ninth song. I asked Cees if we could increase the budget by another thousand dollars to allow for it. Luckily he agreed, as that final song, ‘Primitive Future’, became the ideal album closer.”
