|Sepultura singles chronology|
The song is one of Sepultura's best known songs and is sometimes called a thrash metal masterpiece.
The video was filmed in Death Valley and features footage of the band playing during daylight, mixed with images of a Christ-like figure in a gas mask, hung on a cross. The video was banned by MTV America due to its apocalyptic religious imagery.
At this stage in their career the band had recorded little material to be used as B-sides, which is why the Arise singles are so similar. B-sides on this single were taken from the Under Siege (Live in Barcelona) VHS.
The song was covered by an Indonesian death metal band, namely DeadSquad. Their version of "Arise" was available on their first studio album Horror Vision, which was released in 2009. It was also covered by the American thrash metal band Havok and their version can be found on their EP Point of no Return, released in 2012. It was also covered by the Belgian death metal Aborted in their latest release The Necrotic Manifesto.
