Female cover of Sepultura’s “Territory”

In honor of Women’s Equality Day, celebrated annually in the United States on August 26 to commemorate the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits states and the federal government from denying voting rights to United States citizens on the basis of gender, girls from various metal bands have joined together to record a cover of Brazilian band Sepultura’s most famous song, “Territory”.

The band consists of Lauren Hart, vocalist of the American melodic death metal band Once Human; Tainá Bergamaschi, guitarist of the Brazilian death metal band Crypta, formed by the former members of Nervosa; Veronica Bellino, drummer of Life Of Agony and bassist Alice Lane of Hand of Juno.

The result is a very powerful version of the song, the video for which you can watch below.

“Territory” is Sepultura’s fifth official single and the second of three taken from the album Chaos A.D., released in 1993. Like most of the band’s singles, this song is one of the band’s best-known songs and remains a staple at concerts to this day.
