This entry is part 5 of 11 in the series The Top 10 Max Cavalera Songs

In our interview with Max Cavalera (read here), we discussed his astonishing 30 year career in metal, starting with his first album in Sepultura, Morbid Visions, all the way to his 2015 Soulfly album, Archangel. Here are my Top 10 Max Cavalera Songs spanning his 21 studio albums with Sepultura, Nailbomb, Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy and Killer Be Killed.

(Roots, February 20, 1996, Roadrunner Records)

Roots was Sepultura’s sixth studio album and its last with Max Cavalera. Produced by Ross Robinson and highly influenced by bands like Korn and Deftones, Roots is now one of the pinnacle albums in the nu-metal genre and laid the foundation for Soulfly. The Brazilian tribal rhythms and percussion that began on Chaos A.D., were heavily incorporated into Roots. There’s no better showcase for this than the downtuned lead track, “Roots Bloody Roots.”
