2 Sepultura Sepultura Sepultura is a Brazilian heavy metal band from Belo Horizonte. Their first album, Morbid Visions presented a proto-black metal sound with Wagner Lamounier of Sarcófago. Sepultura's sound varies by the album, from thrash metal, groove metal, and even death metal.

Deserves the number 1 spot for sure. Their the only Brazilian band that can rival bands from other countries, listen to arise, roots bloody roots and refuse resist and youll see what I mean - wolphert

I've never even heard of any of these other bands - gelatinbeastworm

Brazilian metal = Sepultura. - IronSabbathPriest

10 Novos Baianos

Mixing rock with samba, awesome!

The Contenders

11 Nação Zumbi
12 Skank

That's a nice name. NOT. Very offensive if you live here and know what it means. But God knows if they are a really good band. Well, good luck to them anyway.

They are really good, and it doesn't matter what's their name it's a good band and their song are the best ones after Legiao Urbana. So I would listen it if I was ya.

Easily one of the greatest latin rock bands ever! FYI their name refers to "skanking" like in reggae and not an a reference to an offensive term.

13 O Rappa
14 Nx Zero
15 Jota Quest

They are total crap. Watered down blue-eyed soul.

To me they are the best.

They are lovable! "Amor Maior" is my favorite song!

16 Massacration


17 Capital Inicial

One of most famous bands in Brazil! As famous as Charlie Brown Jr, everybody know about them. Everybody loves at least on song!

18 Ratos de Porão

I'm brazilian,and of all brazilian bands,this the best!

19 Engenheiros do Hawaii

Interesting outfit, revolving around Humberto Gessinger, who sings, writes and plays the electric bass guitar. Songs loaded with whimsical tirades and political content (leaning to the left and nationalist side).

Best bass lines, great lyrics and very authentic

These guys are the best, along with Legião Urbana. Their songs have really good instrumental parts.

20 Os Mutantes

Best Brazilian band all tine... Sergio Dias is a brilliant guitar player... In the same level of Harrison, Page or Clapton...

One of the most influential Brazilian bands. Just ask Kevin Barnes to name one.

This is an epic band almost always underrated.

The best band ever for sure
