20 years ago, Sepultura were released their classic album “Roots” in 1996. Max & Iggor Cavalera will go to tour for celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sepultura’s Roots album. The tour named “Return To Roots”.

Speaking with Metal Hammer, Korn’s Jonathan Davis revealed that he was initially upset over the Roots album. According to John’s claims, Sepultura had copied their sound on “Roots” album. He says:

“Yeah. Slipknot were inspired by what we did, but they took it and did their own thing, which is fucking amazing.


One that I thought was a big compliment, but I also thought was fucked up, was Sepultura‘s ‘Roots’ album. That was just a blatant Korn rip-off, and I had it out with producer Ross Robinson about that, because he just took our sound and gave it to Sepultura.

My young brain couldn’t handle it. But they were one of our biggest influences, so I guess they get a pass. And that’s a classic album, so it’s all good.”
