And of all places, the praising took place on national television, during Uncle Dave’s appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”
The frontman was discussing the concept of the latest Foo Fighters album “Sonic Highways” and the potential of other countries to enrich rock and metal music with their traditional music.
At that point he turned the chat towards Sepultura and their critically acclaimed album 1996 “Roots,” focusing on the incorporation of traditional Brazilian music into the bands metal fueled vibe.
On of the reasons why the chat took a turn towards Brazil is the fact that the show’s second guest was “Fast & Furious” actress Jordana Brewster, who lived in Brazil when she was a child.
Dave’s full quote reads: ” “One of my favorite heavy metal bands of all time is from Brazil. This band called Sepultura. They’re amazing, but one of the crazy things they did, they made this album called ‘Roots.’ But they incorporated crazy Brazilian instrumentation into the heaviest music you’ve ever heard in your life. It kind of changed the game. It was the heaviest thing ever.”
