SEPULTURA Begins Recording New Album; Early 2020 Release Expected
Brazilian/American metallers SEPULTURA have entered the studio to begin recording their new album for a tentative February 2020 release via Nuclear Blast.
The follow-up to 2017’s “Machine Messiah” is once again being recorded at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with producer Jens Bogren, who has previously worked with SOILWORK, OPETH, KATATONIA, AMON AMARTH, KREATOR and DRAGONFORCE, among others.
SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser spoke about the band’s recording plans during a recent interview with Kyrgyzstan’s TV1.kg. He said: “Since September-October last year, we started putting ideas together, demos. Me and Eloy Casagrande, the drummer, working in São Paulo, just building the basic structure of the songs, and Derrick (Green, vocals) and Paulo (Xisto Pinto Jr., bas) working in their ouses as well, putting their input. And we have about now around 10 songs. We would like to put an album with 12 songs — that’s the idea — plus record some covers and bonus tracks for special releases and stuff.“
He continued: “We’re going in the studio in August in Sweden with Jens Bogren, which is the same producer and the same studio we used for ‘Machine Messiah’. And yes, the idea is to put out the album in February 2020. We have a concept already, we have a name, but we cannot share it yet.”
“Machine Messiah” was SEPULTURA’s fourteenth studio album and the eighth since Green joined the ranks. Lyrically, the disc tackled the metaphorical robotization of society and the need to follow and worship someone.
SEPULTURA was formed in 1984 in Belo Horizonte by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, who are no longer with the band.
