180g 2LP-Set Remastered and Expanded with 14 Rare and Unreleased Studio/Live Recordings!
Founded in 1984 by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, Sepultura soon became an influential force in heavy metal music thanks to its dynamic studio recordings and intense live performances. The band has sold nearly 20 million albums worldwide to date, including more than three million in the United States. Sepultura broadened its musical horizons with Chaos A.D. and Roots, a pair of acclaimed albums that took the Brazilian band's hard-rocking sound in bold and exciting new directions. Atlantic/Warner Bros. revisit these back-to-back classics with remastered versions that are expanded with rare and unreleased studio and live recordings.
Sepultura was in the midst of a creative and commercial peak in 1993 when it released Chaos A.D. The album ushered in a more groove-based sound on songs like "Refuse/Resist," "Territory" and "Slave New World." The Expanded Edition includes a newly remastered version of the original album along with 14 bonus tracks. Among the highlights are a cover of Black Sabbath's "Symptom Of The Universe" originally issued as a B-side, plus 7 scorching live versions of album tracks like "Territory" and "Biotech Is Godzilla." Also featured are several unreleased instrumental tracks that the band used during writing sessions for "Clenched Fist" and "Propaganda."
