SEPULTURA TO RELEASE EXPANDED EDITIONS OF ‘CHAOS A.D.’ AND ‘ROOTS’

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. Later this year, Rhino will revisit those back-to-back classics with remastered versions that are expanded with rare and unreleased studio and live recordings.

CHAOS A.D.: EXPANDED EDITION will be available on October 6 and is available for pre-order here, while the ROOTS: EXPANDED EDITION will be available on November 3 and can be pre-ordered here.

Sepultura was founded in 1983 by the brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera with Wagner Lamounier and Jairo Guedes.  Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. joined just a few short months later and in 1987, with the departure of Jairo and addition of guitarist Andreas Kisser, the solid line up of Sepultura was final. The band quickly became an influential force in heavy metal music thanks to its dynamic studio recordings and intense live performances.

The band was in the midst of a creative and commercial peak in 1993 when it released Chaos A.D. with Max Cavalera on vocals & guitar, Andreas Kisser on guitar, Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr on bass and Iggor Cavalera on drums.  The record ushered in a more groove-based sound on songs like the singles Refuse/Resist, Territory  and Slave New World.

CHAOS A.D.: EXPANDED EDITION includes a newly remastered version of the original album along with 17 bonus tracks. Among the highlights are a cover of Black Sabbath’s Symptom Of The Universe that was originally issued as a B-side, plus nine scorching live versions of album tracks like Territory and Biotech Is Godzilla. Also featured are several unreleased instrumental tracks that the band used during rehearsals for Clenched Fist and Propaganda.

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.

ROOTS: EXPANDED EDITION features a newly remastered version of the original album, plus 17 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.

Sepultura has sold nearly 20 million albums worldwide, including more than three million in the United States.

Max and Iggor Cavalera will both return to Australia this September as part of their Return To Roots Tour. For information on the tour and upcoming dates – click here.
