We also knew that they had been discriminated, like we were. Because of that we were very curious about them. Meeting the Xavante was by several accounts a life-changing experience that has continued to resonate with the members of Sepultura ever since.
We also lived on the edge of society, and our music and lifestyle is a long way from being assimilated and respected by that society. After the trip, recording resumed with Robinson at Indigo Ranch, at the time Robinson's studio of choice. According to the same Nashville Scene article, by that point the band had amassed "an overabundance of material. We did so much recording that the amount of stuff we had going on was quite crazy. We had to make sure not to let anything really special slip by.

What you believe is for life, even if people try all the time to change you. The lyrics to "Attitude" were co-written by Dana Wells, Max Cavalera's stepson, whose death in part led to the events which caused Max to leave the band. Dana also came up with the concept for the video for the song, featuring Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu experts the Gracie family.
By mixing metal with native instruments, the band resuscitates the tired genre, reminding of Led Zeppelin times. But while Zeppelin mixed English metal with African beats, it's still more moving to hear a band that uses elements of its own country. By extracting the sounds of the past, Sepultura determines the future direction of metal". Specialized heavy metal critics also reviewed the album positively.
