Remastered and Expanded 180g 2LP-Set with 12 Rare and Unreleased Bonus Tracks!
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 the back-to-back classics with remastered versions that are expanded with rare and unreleased studio and live recordings.
Three years after Chaos A.D., the band returned with Roots, an album that was deeply influenced by Brazilian rhythms, which were incorporated into tracks like "Itsári" and "Ratamahatta." Since its release in 1996, the album has sold more than two million copies worldwide. The Expanded Edition features a newly remastered version of the original album, plus 12 bonus tracks. Standouts include demos for "Dusted" and "Roots Bloody Roots," instrumental versions of "Dictatorshit" and "Cutthroat," a version of "Attitude" recorded live at Ozzfest, and the unreleased first take of "Kaiowas."
