Dave Grohl Sings Sepultura's Praises

(TeamRock Radio) Dave Grohl has told of his love for Brazilian metal heroes Sepultura on American television. The Foo Fighters mainman and former Nirvana drummer praised Max Cavalera and co's "amazing" album Roots on Monday night's edition of The Late Late Show With James Corden.

Discussing the potential for taking the Sonic Highways TV show to other countries, the chat turned to Brazil, where Grohl's fellow guest, Fast & Furious actress Jordana Brewster, lived as a child.

Grohl says: "You know what's crazy? One of my favorite heavy metal bands of all time is from Brazil. This band called Sepultura. I mean, 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, like, the heaviest music you've ever heard in your life. It kind of, like, changed the game. It was the heaviest thing ever." Watch the video here.
