Root was one of the original pre-second-wave black metal bands, following in the footsteps of Bathory and Venom, while taking the genre in a more refined, less savage direction. Their style has since progressed towards a more epic, dark metal sound with a clean-sung vocal approach, but their music can still be recognised as black metal at its core due to the unchanged ideology of the band.
