Roots

Album Summary

Roots is the sixth studio album by Brazilian metal band Sepultura. It was released in Europe on February 20, 1996 (1996-02-20) and in the U.S. three weeks later on March 12 by Roadrunner Records. It is the band's last studio album to feature founding member and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Max Cavalera. Following the shift to slower tempos and Latin-tinged rhythms on the album Chaos A.D., Roots delves even further into Brazilian musical textures and features significant contributions from iconic Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown, who guided and arranged the sections throughout the album that feature ensemble percussion playing. Both in sound and overall aesthetic, Roots is also a conscious nod to Brazil's marginalized indigenous population and cultures. The song "Itsári" features a Xavante chant that re-appears on the song "Born Stubborn" and serves as a loose thematic thread for the whole album, which on the whole showcases the band's increased affinity for experimentation and collaboration. "Lookaway" features guest appearances by Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis, then-Korn drummer David Silveria, House of Pain/Limp Bizkit turntablist DJ Lethal, and Faith No More/Mr. Bungle vocalist Mike Patton. Riff-wise, Roots also draws influence from the then-surging nu metal movement, specifically Korn (whose first two albums were also produced by Roots producer Ross Robinson) and Deftones. After leaving the band, Max Cavalera would continue to pursue the nu metal and "world" stylings of Roots with his solo project Soulfly. Since its release, Roots has sold over two million copies worldwide.

I've listened to about 70 albums of the 1001. This is my biggest discovery yet. Once I got used to the screaming I was amazed by the guitar work. There's a lot of "the prodigy" vibes. So many great riffs I often wish they would repeat them more often. Then the latin folk mix in Ratamahatta got me convinced fully. I even showed to my wife and kids who also digged it. Not sure we would listen to it as a family but they "got it". Highlight: Bloody Roots, Ratamahatta, Jasi/Itsari, Canyon Jam.

I'm a big Sepultura fan and I listened to this just a few days ago in the car. So not actually going to listen again today... although coincidentally, as I load this project today I'm watching a live video of them from 1996 and tons of Roots material is on it, so eh. Normally I'd rate it in relation to the rest of Sepultura's (Max-era) catalogue and it'd get a 2 or 3; compared to their previous albums it's too long and half the songs have a dumb jam feel to them. When it came out I wasn't surprised it sounded like it did, but I was still disappointed - I knew there was zero chance it'd sound like Arise, but I was hoping it'd be more like Chaos AD than it was. The nu-metal sound was just everywhere, all my favourite bands seemed to be doing the mid-90s in a way I didn't like and I remember hearing Roots and thinking "oh for christ's sake, Sepultura as well?" These days I like it more than I did in 1996 (and the title track has always been A+) but it's still at the bottom end of their catalogue. I gave up on Sepultura after this album, simply because Max left the band and the album after it was just crap. I do have to give Kisser, Paulo and Green a tip of the hat because they've stuck at it for so long since, and their last album is actually really good, but I'm just a Cavalera tragic at heart. Roots was basically end of the line for me. But then again, compared to the absolute SHIT this project throws at me 6 days per week, Roots is a fucking masterpiece. I'm not judging it by other Sepultura albums today; I'm rating in comparison to the same late 60s folk/pop/rock yawnfests I hear over and over every day. And on that scale, Roots gets a 5/5.

4.7 - Wow, I had very low expectations for this (yet another nu metal album?!) but I actually think it's amazingly innovative. Somehow the fusion of indigenous Brazilian beats and instruments, corny and misguided as it may look on paper, actually comes together and provides for some amazing moments. I especially love the instrumentals "Jasco" and "Itsari" that act as a sort of intermission in the middle of the record. Unlike other nu metal records I've listened to, this one is almost absent of the "I-hate-my-stepdad-and-want-to-kill-everything" vibe. Instead, Sepultura takes on headier topics such as civic disobedience ("Ambush" and "Dictatorshit") and ecological decline ("Endangered Species"). The record ends on a high with "Canyon Jam", a drum circle that sounds like it was recorded in the middle of the Amazon under the moonlight.

I love this album, though a lot of that is for nostalgic reasons. They really jumped on the nu-metal bandwagon with this album, but 16 year old me didn't care about that in 1997, I just loved playing this and Chaos AD over and over. In addition to being a gateway metal album from my formative years, Sepultura was also one of those bands that kind of opened my eyes to a wider world beyond the small conservative community I grew up in. To this day, I just love Max Cavalera's voice, and Igor Cavalera varies up his drumming so much that even songs with the simplest riffs end up being some of the most dynamic.

The vocals are so clear in this mix. i think its because the kick drum is so soft on the attack. Roots, Bloody Roots has my attention. Ratamahatta is a real cool groovy. Ambush has some classic hardcore metal gang vocals. I feel like I am obligated to take off a star because of a 12+ minute album closing canyon jam session, though one of the instruments is a gun?

Heavy and without the chaotic non-sense nosebleed-causing ruckus of other hardcore/metal bands, "Roots" is that dirty clean type of metal where the growling and screams might actually have an intelligible word here and there. In this reviewer's experience, metal generally was a pre-game music choice or something to encourage aggressive focus. Sepultura's "Roots" fits that bill. Melodic and heavy, the sounds/songs are progressive and orderly, yet when it is time to go a bit harder, so is the listener. While Sepultura certainly does not stand alone in achieving this kind of balance between the chaotic expression of metal and the demanding order of focused aggression, it should stand out that they do it very well.

"Roots" is the sixth studio album from Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultra and the last one with vocalist and rhythm guitarist Max Cavalera. I was expecting a lot to hate about this album. Oh, and there is a lot of hate in this album but I actually found quite a bit to like. It figures. Sepultra is classified as both groove and nu metal. I think that's what scared me is that I don't like most nu metal. I heard both but more in the groove metal category which is more tuned-downed guitars, slower tempo and screeching/raspy lyrics (Pantera). This album continues where their album "Chaos AD" left off with slower and more latin tempos and goes further into Brazilian music rhythm and textures. The band actually went into the rainforest to write and record with the indigenous Xavante people which had a major influence to the lyrics and music. The percussion and rhythms are definite highlights in this album. The assault starts with their first single as well, "Roots Bloody Roots." Grinding, nu metal guitar. Great guitar solo and percussion. Angry, angry, angry...about saving culture. The second song and single "Attitude" continues the anger but starts off acoustically. Massive drumming. The later-song guitar is more in the groove metal area which I liked better than the previous song. The third and final single "Ratamatta" has chanting in Portuguese, multiple and tribal-type percussion and appearances by Korn drummer David Silveria and Brazilian singer/musician Carlinhos Brown. No let down on the second half of the album. Both "Born Stubborn" and "Ambush" hit hard with the guitars, percussions and themes of culture and the environment. Maybe the most interesting song on the album is "Itsári" recorded with the Xavante people...huge percussion, tribal chanting and a sitar. There is a lot going on in this album. It is hard and loud, definitely not for everyone. I am not big fan of either nu metal or groove metal but this album especially adding the percussions and added rhythms has to one of if not the best in that category for me.

Wow, this certainly shook the cobwebs off this morning! I've heard of Sepultura but never listened to them until now. What a great surprise! Incredible amounts of energy and anger here, but also much more melodic than I expected. I always imagined they were more in the "unintelligible-gutterally-screamed-lyrics" sort of territory. I've only listened as far as Itsári so far, this is another long album from this generator. That seemed a good place to take a break. I'd give an 8/10 so far. Finished the rest of the album, it did not disappoint! Although the 13 minute long meditation style song at the end may have been a bit unnecessary, still a solid 8/10 for me that I will definitely come back to.

I admit that death and thrash metal is a bit of a guilty pleasure. I don't love the screaming but I love the frenetic guitar playing and booming bass lines. So Roots Bloody Roots hooked me in, and the singing made me wonder if I should stay hooked. Another issue with this genre is that it all kind of sounds the same. And I don't just mean this album - yes, some songs sound similar to each other but also to so many other Slipknot, Disturbed, etc. albums. Mixing in some Brazilian / Latin music (and bongos!) gives some songs a different feel, but absent those features it can get monotonous. Ratamahatta was pretty unique actually with its use of Brazilian sounds; didn't always love it, but kudos to the band for doing something different. Conversely, I really liked the mix of thrash and Brazil in Breed Apart, but the final moments with distortion was truly irritating. Loved the music in Straighthate, needed some melody somewhere though. Got kind of monotonous from there for about 5 songs. Jasco and Itsari changed it up with some nice acoustic, almost classical Spanish guitar playing. Showed a bit of chops there. Good album as far as death metal goes, need less screaming though.

This is so fucking sick. Makes me want to bench press a blue whale. Heavy, but not in that annoying "SATAN BLOOD DEATH! MY PARENTS ARE GETTING A DIVORCE" kind of way (Looking at you, Slayer). Mixing the screaming and insane guitars with Brazilian tribal music somehow works incredibly well. Favorite track was either "Ratamahatta", "Endangered Species" or "Roots Bloody Roots". Honorable mention goes to the 13-minute bonus track "Canyon Jam". A 2.76 global rating? Made me think I was going to be listening to Poundland Megadeth or something.

Not Sepultura's best album it's still really great. This gives me hope that their other albums will be on the list of 1001 albums you have to listen to. Roots really show a drift from Sepultura's previous style but manages to keep the aggressiveness. There's some really great songs like Roots Bloody Roots and Cut-throat. The creativeness and the production is impressive.

Well, I've never really been a fan of the atonal screaming metal vocals. I just don't feel like they add anything to the music. Apart from that, this is a pretty cool album. It has a lot of the elements of nu metal instrumentals without feeling completely shitty and soulless like so much of that music does. The traditional Brazilian influence does a lot for this album in terms of adding substance. It slowly seems to stop being a metal album and becomes a Brazilian folk music album 4/5

Chaos A.D. et Roots sont les deux plus gros albums de Sepultura. Sur Chaos A.D., une signature commence à apparaître avec un métal plus rhythmique. À l'époque où j'écoutais des bands comme Metallica, Slayer et Pantera, Chaos A.D. avec ses chansons Refuse/Resist et Territory amenaient de la nouveauté dans le genre. Roots, l'album qui a suivi, est selon moi leur album le plus authentique avec une plus grande place aux éléments culturels du groupe. C'est ce qui en fait sa force. On a un son aussi vraiment plus lourd avec le tuning plus grave. L'album est un peu long, mais c'est un classique que j'aime revisiter. Pièces préférées: Roots Bloody Roots, Ratamahatta

I understand the controversy behind this album. Nu metal has always been derided (tbh, including by myself) and this must have seemed like a sellout move for Sepultura. But I’ve always erred on the side who considers this revelatory. I don’t think Max Cavalera was chasing trends, but he genuinely has always been a guy who has had his pulse on the current scene and likes to follow course in his own way. Look at Soulfly’s recent material for an example. When the album embraces their literal roots and adds Brazilian influences, it’s a triumph. But it goes on for way too long- the CD era had to die for a reason. Even as someone who still likes CDs and uses them, I definitely do not miss the desire to fill a disc of material. This would be a good bit better if it was at least a brisk 50 minutes. B-

Damn, how the first five tracks of this one SLAP! The inclusion of Latin American rhythms within some of the most uncompromising metal of those years is just seamless. From "Roots Bloody Roots" to "Breed Apart", not a second is wasted to make this fusion works. Special mention to "Ratamahatta" and its incredible featuring of percussionist Carlinhos Brown. And Ross Robinson did a hell of a job on production (better than Andy Wallace for the former Sepultura classic *Chaos A.D.*). The later inclusion of field recordings of Amazonian tribes is also very nice. Sonically and topically relevant. I just wish that seamless inclusion of Brazilian influences has worked *until the end*. The second part of the album is indeed a little more hit or miss, and loses some of its momentum through its many u-turns (there's still that somewhat atmospheric track with Mike Pattton and Jonathan Davis--but such moments are too far and between). As a result, this record might just be a little too long. So, to put it in a nutshell, *Roots* is based on an awesome concept, one that somehow renews the whole metal genre. But the second half of this album *might* just be a little lacking in terms of sheer execution. That being said, even with those minor shortcomings, it should still be included in a list of 1001 most important albums. If only because there are not many crossover albums like this in the whole metal genre, ones that can bring curious listeners from the outside without alienating its hardcore fanbase. Number of albums left to review or just listen to: 896 Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens: 55 (including this one) Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: 27 Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): 23

Best Song: Ratamahatta. I really like the intense staccato delivery. It pairs well with the metal backing, and isn't something you often see in the genre. Close second to Itsári. Worst Song: Straighthate. I'm not a big fan of when metal artists try to cram this "edgy" lyrical content into their songs as a way to, I don't know, gain credibility? The music is heavy enough to stand on its own without the cheesy lyrics. Overall: Pleasantly surprised by this album. There was a diverse enough set of sounds to keep an album this long interesting (which isn't always the case in metal, where bands can tend to be a little one-note). I think the name "Roots" is fitting, and I most enjoyed the parts of the album where the band took inspiration from traditional/aboriginal Brazilian music. These elements felt really unique, whereas some of the more typical, English-language tracks were a bit boring.

Abso-fucking-lutely. Just a great, strong, heavy album. I am totally in love with the plethora of percussion instruments on this record; the breakdown for "Breed Apart" did NOT need to go that heavy, but I'm glad it did. Praise aside, it's a bit of a long one, and while there are flourishes of texture, it can be a little repetitive at times. Still, phenomenal album. Favorite tracks: "Breed Apart", "Ratamahatta", "Roots Bloody Roots", "Itsari"

My journey with Brazilian music has really decentered how I think about western music vs. 'world music.' When taken with the history of Brazilian music, 'Roots' actually fits in rather well. It's an album of a primarily western genre (metal) that subverts the genre to serve as the medium to carry a message that elevates their heritage and in this case, the heritage of the indigenous Xavante who feature prominently on this album. The music itself is a great nu-metal, groove-metal, death-metal fusion that never looses its pull. The lyrics celebrate the self, one's roots if you will, and of course remark on the political and social structure of Brazil. The only drawback is the length.

color me impressed! first, sepultura goes *so* hard in every single song--it's hard to imagine them being any more metal than they are. they aren't music to relax to, but damn, it's some good rage music. but the inclusion of their brazilian heritage is what stands out! the combination of the two is absolutely marvelous. there have been previous albums on this list or otherwise that have borrowed (a not so nice word is stolen) musical influences, themes, instruments, styles, etc. from other native cultures. but as far as i can tell, sepultura created this album respectfully with the brazillian indigenous people's encouragement. the influence isn't over the top, but the chants, flutes, forest sounds every so often add to the general ambience. it took me several hours after listening to this album to realize i am reminded of system of a down! that's a wonderful compliment in my world. i'm looking forward to coming back to this album again! 🤘

Interesting one, this. Good, weighty riffs that feel adjacent to nu-metal, but agree with the observation that the sound cleaves closer to an act like Helmet. I really appreciate the attempt to meld sounds from indigenous cultures with heavy metal. It can become a little obtuse, as on 'Canyon Jam' (though I did appreciate its atmosphere) but most of the time it put me in mind of Dr John's debut, which featured all manner of voodoo-inspired whoops and whistles. Who made the better syncretic shamanic album? Dr John, for sure. Can you headbang to 'Gris Gris'? A tough ask. Can you blast the dandruff to Roots? Absolutely

El thrash metal no és un génere senzill de flexibilitzar, però els brasilenys, després de sublimar-ho amb 'Chaos A.D.', van ser capaços de donar una nova volta de rosca i introduir elements folk a base sobretot de percussió i veus, trobant una nova fita en la seva carrera i al thrash, per segon cop consecuitiu

I don't necessarily dislike Death Metal, and it's cool that they are from Brazil. Beyond that, it feels very typical heavy metal, a bit uninspired for me. Then again, I'm not a metalhead so :shrug:.

Not usually into metal, but I thought I would try this one out because its from Brazil. Not a fan of the whole Screaming vocal style, but there are some really interesting moments here (the final track is a standout for me), which I think place it a cut above other metal albums that Ive listened to. Closer to a 3.5, but I just cant take the screaming vocals seriously.

The songs definitely have a cool metal groove. Some of it is the stuff nightmares are made of. I don't mind some growling, but this was a little much for me. Wish I could hear this with a singer who wasn't constantly screaming because the music is pretty awesome. Giving it a 3 but would have given it a 4 with less screaming.

I'm not into the nu metal genre and this is the first time I've listened to Sepultura. This album was pretty good at times and I especially like some of the exotic rhythms that the band used on multiple tracks. They seemed to be trying to do something different here which is always a risk because you don't know how fans are going to react. One of my criticism (apart from the growling vocals which isn't my thing) is that the band seemed to do the one thing that a lot of bands in that era did and that is fill up the entire CD. I think they would've benefited a lot by taking at least 2 tracks off and making a better overall album. Dusted and Born stubborn could easily have been bonus tracks or used on an E.P. It would have been a 4 star album but I think it's length makes me drop it down to 3.

Intense, relentless, piercing sound. Brutal, guttural-to-screaming vocals. Cathartic, angry lyrics. I enjoyed the use of Latin and indigenous musics, which pushes this creatively to a level beyond what I expected, particularly on the back half of the album. The closed it out nicely with "Canyon Jam." Overall hard on the ears, and not really my genre of choice, but this is a well made album. Glad I gave it a chance. Fave Songs: Breed Apart, Ratamahatta, Jasco, Itsari

Pas un fan du genre mais j'ai apprécié l'écoute Pour moi c'est vraiment l'aspect roots, les éléments de musiques traditionnelles et field recordings, qui m'ont plus Le disque est bien réalisé et les jams de percs et autres interludes rendent ça digeste pour les non-amateurs de métal comme moi mettons. Il y a de quoi que j'ai jamais compris dans les sons de bass métal. All clank and noise pis pas de fondamentale de la note. Même en solo on a peine à distinguer qu'est-ce qu'y joue....🤔

I listened to Sepultura at the gym, which was a good place to listen to it. I didn't mind it, good in places (Straighthate, Spit, Born Stubborn especially) but again, when I'm listening to metal of this style I want a little more nuance and skill to it. Maybe I've been spoiled by Avatar. Anyway, 3/5.

What a stark contrast from the other Sepultura album Arise. I haven't listened to Chaos A.D. but they dramatically slowed down their riffs, and I am now convinced nu metal is just groove metal with heavier, grungier riffs and hip hop vocals. There's a ton of Korn inspiration here, especially in "Attitude" and "Endangered Species", and in fact they were so obsessed they even got Korn to play in "Lookaway." They also incorporate Brazilian indigenous themes in the lyrics, instrumentation, and sometimes vocals as in the peculiar "Ratamahatta" or the last few tracks. It's a solid album. Production work is good. There's good mixing and nice Korn-esque effects like distortion. It's also super influential, for being one of the first albums to popularize nu metal, which of course would dominate mainstream rock for the next half decade. There's only a few highlights in the album, much like Arise. I didn't find the vast majority to be memorable. Also double album syndrome made it hardly bearable to listen to entirely. Tracks are too long, most of them going over 4 minutes. They try to spice it up near the end with more unconventional indigenous-themed tracks which does blend in well but hardly grabbed my attention. "Itsari" and "Dictatorship" are the only tracks I enjoyed after "Lookaway."

This album was a really nice surprise. I enjoyed the metal elements, but what really caught me was the blending of traditional Brazilian tribal and folk musics into the metal sound. I have no doubt that these inclusions contributed to my enjoyment of this album. At the time that this album came out, it was probably unlike anything Americans had ever heard and no doubt influenced metal music to move forward with more world music sounds. This is also the kind of metal where there's plenty of yelling but not TOO much yelling; you can still pick up on some of the lyrics. Dictatorshit went a big far into the "thrash" realm for me, but fortunately it was short and sweet. Canyon Jam was an incredibly bold finisher, leaning even more heavily into the tribal side of things and away from metal. It was a move that worked well, though, as it seals the album with a bit of mystery and intrigue. Simply put, this album is a killer celebration of heritage crafted inside of the realm of metal music, where the band shines best. It just works.

Non content de nous avoir cassé les oreilles sur un premier album encore aujourd'hui considéré comme le pire album de cette liste, Sepultura revient avec un projet grandiloquant d'1h16. Malgré quelques promesses intéressantes d'un projet certes heavy metal mais digeste, Sepultura ne pourra jamais tenir l'auditeur pendant toute la durée de l'album. Pire encore, pour ajouter à leur médiocre musique, Sepultura a profité de la visite du producteur aux portails dans leur pays de résidence, le Brésil, pour l'inviter sur la dernière piste de l'album (le producteur aux portails étant présent sur place suite à sa collaboration avec Os Mutantes, voir la review de leur album). Difficile de laisser passer toutes ces erreurs, Sepultura s'en tirera néammoins avec un 2/5, soit le double de la note du très critiqué Arise.

Never liked this type of rock derived from Zeppelin a/o Sabbath (as the band biography indicates). But, understand why a band like this was formed is interesting. Some info from wikipedia Sepultura (Portuguese: [ˌsepuwˈtuɾɐ], "grave")[1] is a Brazilian heavy metal band from Belo Horizonte. Formed in 1984 by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, the band was a major force in the groove metal, thrash metal and death metal genres during the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their later experiments drawing influence from alternative metal, world music, nu metal, hardcore punk, and industrial metal. Sepultura has also been credited as one of the second wave of thrash metal acts from the late 1980s to early-to-mid-1990s.

Ugly arse cover… The album starts with roots bloody roots it’s the kinda in your face slipknot type stuff that oversteps the barrier too much the instrumentation isn’t even good enough to pass on as great. I like the effects put at the start of attitude sounds like a space tribe and the screaming gives the song a needed atmosphere but the screaming isn’t even good screaming. Cut-throat is just more viking screaming. Whereas rathamahatta is a caveman chant better and more primal that it’s predecessor. The vocals in breed apart are way too odd just either creeky or a screamy mess ( wow I hate this album). Okay something I like the first minute of straighthate is interesting instrumentally them it’s the same old shit. Actually, to prevent boredom the rush from spit to dusted all have this same nasty sound to them which I hate, some have redeeming moments where I can see other people loving this but it’s all scream mo substance. But born stubborn kinda hits with me with the rapid instrumentation, it’s a better use for the screaming, still not my kinda thing but I don’t hate it ( now that’s saved this from a 1/5). Now there is a 2 song block of instrumentals first jasco it’s not much just a short bit of folk music. But then is Itsari, well I guess it’s not fully instrumental but it’s still a stupid acoustic based chanter. But I prefer it over like 70% of this album. And the ooga booga voice is back with ambush It’s just repetitive, uninteresting and predictable. The intro to endangered species is cool but then we’re back to the same noise. I guess the spine of the album ends with dictatorshit a drum based rampager with very little guitars, it was a good try and they failed. Canyon jam isn’t worth sitting through! Without these small instrumental moments of greatness it would easily be a 1, this shouldn’t be 16 tracks long this band could only do like 10 okay and there was still some filler. Best songs= the singles Worst songs= that boring stretch in the middle that I didn’t bother reviewing properly

From the first words, I simply cannot take this seriously. This music needs to cast a little more of a spell before it dives into "ROHTS! BLOODY ROHTS!" I'm giggling from the outset. 'Ratamahatta' came around and I was still sort of bemused by it all. On 'Dusted', it ain't gettin' any better. This guy seems very upset. I'll tell you what, a lot of the vocal performance here made me laugh. This probably isn't for me and I'm definitely not keyed in to whatever this is supposed to be doing. Good playing, though? There's a brief respite with Itsari - that was pretty enjoyable! Then we dive right back into the angst. I checked out at the beginning of 'Canyon Jam'. Sepultura did not earn another 12 minutes of my life.

Oh good God. I almost turned it off immediately, but I stuck with it. Listened all the way through. As a rock fan, I have to say there were definitely some good grooves in there. Clearly this style of rock is very high intensity, in your face. Lyrically this seems more like punk rock than metal, although the riffs are clearly more closely related to Black Sabbath than they are to Black Flag. A kind of hybrid. But the vocal style is flat out awful. AWFUL!! Then they throw in the native chanting and Brazilian rhythms in the midst of all the head-banging hatred, and we’re supposed to go, “Ooh! Culture!” The 13-minute long bullshit at the end was completely unnecessary. The album was already an hour long and they throw this shit into the end, for what? I realize Sepultura is a high band, worldwide. It has no appeal for me, however. I’ll find my head-banging elsewhere.

Unlistenable. Could be genre bias.

Didn't get very far in. I really struggle with this genre, can't really differentiate one band from another.

Noise, plain and simple. Nothing redeeming here. F

Pas mon genre, pas super intéressant, pas particulièrement drette et agressant en plus. Y’a du ben meilleur métal que ça.

I was hoping this would be an album called Sepultra by the Roots. It wasn't. I'm not a fan of screaming metal at all really (although one of the plus points of this singer was that it was relatively easy to understand the lyrics). Still, this genre of music has never done anything for me really, and this album has done nothing to change that. 1/5.
