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.
This fall, Rhino will revisit those back-to-back classics with remastered versions that are expanded with rare and unreleased studio and live recordings.
The albums are available for pre-order now.
13 October – Chaos A.D. 2CD, 2LP & digital
3 November – Roots 2CD, 2LP & digital
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 the singles “Refuse/Resist,” “Territory” and “Slave New World.” Three years after, the band returned with Roots, a record deeply influenced by the Brazilian rhythms incorporated into tracks like “Itsári” and “Ratamahatta.”
Iggor and Max Cavalera are touring the Roots album (Return to Roots Tour) in Europe throughout the summer into the late fall
And Iggor Cavalera has a message for you…
