Wagner Moura Lamounier is a Brazilian economist and musician who achieved fame for having been original vocalist of Brazilian thrash metal band Sepultura, and for having created and led the first-wave black/thrash metal band Sarcófago from 1985 until it disbanded in 2000.
Life and career
Lamounier sang briefly with Sepultura during the early part of the band's career, contributing the lyrics to the song "Antichrist" (a reference to his own moniker) featured on the band's first release Bestial Devastation. He then moved to his own band (Sarcófago) which, while less commercially successful than Sepultura, is universally hailed as a major influence on the most extreme spectrum of metal music, being revered by black, thrash and death metal fans. Ten years after leaving the band, he revealed personal information about his former bandmates. In response, Sepultura's former frontman, now with Soulfly, Max Cavalera wrote a song called "Bumbklaatt" about him. Lamounier is currently a professor of economic science and applied statistics at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
