Listen: Original Demo of Sepultura’s “Roots Bloody Roots”
Gloria Cavalera—wife and manager of the band's founding frontman Max Cavalera--has posted the original demo track for Sepultura's classic song "Roots Bloody Roots" on her website GloriaCavalera.com; Max, of course, is currently in Soulfly, Killer Be Killed, and the Cavalera Conspiracy. Check it out, and read what Gloria has to say about the track below or on her site.
As I promised once, I will let you all hear the early tape Max made when he was writing at the kitchen table when I was pregnant with Igor. Enjoy and have a good discussion, my Students! I am sure there will be many comments around the classroom..
After Max wrote a big portion of the album, Roadrunner owner and CEO, Cees Wessel flew Max and myself to Amsterdam for a meeting with the marketing team. Max laid out his idea...the title, artwork and concept along with the music on his machine. We all had a laugh when the label suggested the title may be confusing to the fans and they will think it an R&B release!
Since we were in Europe and the band still in Brazil, Max and I took a train to Vienna and then on to Salzburg, Austria, for a breather. I was quite pregnant at the time.
When the band finished their months long break and came to Phoenix to jam, Max had his idea fully planted. Have fun with this class, Students......the truth be told...
