Sepultura, 'Roots' (1996)

That album ... Jesus Christ. I mean, besides Iowa, that album is probably one of the thickest-sounding, heaviest-sounding albums that I've ever heard, from a production standpoint. It's so gross and yet so fucking awesome. You can almost hear the hair on it [laughs]. Ugh. And some of the songs and the riffs are just so brutal that you're just like, "Holy shit, man." That, to me, that's my favorite Sepultura album. I mean, I love all their albums, but that one... Probably everybody loves it, but to me, that one's just really special because it was another evolution. That album doesn't get nearly enough credit for how fucking inspirational it was for a lot of people and a lot of artists. So it's a shame.
