  1. 1.0 1.1 Christe (2003), pg. 264, "As close to death metal as any other gold-selling record before it, Chaos A.D. stripped down Sepultura's sound into a coarse metallic loop. The CD sold half a million copies, and influenced death-derived groove metal that inspired an upcoming generation of mavens in the 1990s."
