20 years ago on February 20th 1996 Sepultura released:
Love it or Hate it changed Sepultura and Metal forever even though they had been doing different things since their previous Album (Chaos A.D). I think this Record also marks the "true birth" of what was later known as Nu Metal.
After the release Max left Sepultura and formed Soulfly which IMO is the following of what Sepultura started in Roots. Not my thing since I find all the songs pretty much the same. Roots was great because it was fresh and that alone makes it a very special and historical Record.
