Roots is the legendary sixth studio album from Roadrunner legendary metallers Sepulture and is the band's last to feature founding member and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Max Cavalera.

This 5LP Super Deluxe Box Set features the original album (inc bonus song ‘Canyon Jam’, two LPs of alternate mixes and takes plus demo version and a fifth LP of their unreleased performance at Ozzfest Phoenix in 1996.

The set comes in a custom spot-varnished hard box with 3 gatefold tip-on jackets, new custom artwork and a Sepultura embroidered patch and fold out poster exclusive to this edition.

Following the shift to slower tempos and Latin-tinged rhythms on the album Chaos A.D., Roots delves even further into Brazilian musical textures. Both in sound and overall aesthetic, Roots is also a conscious nod to Brazil's marginalized indigenous population and cultures. The song "Itsári" features a Xavante chant that re-appears on the song "Born Stubborn" and serves as a loose thematic thread for the whole album, which on the whole showcases the band's increased affinity for experimentation and collaboration. "Lookaway" features guest appearances by Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis, then-Korn drummer David Silveria, House of Pain/Limp Bizkit turntablist DJ Lethal, and Faith No More/Mr. Bungle vocalist Mike Patton
