Sepultura Posts Track-By-Track Breakdown

Legendary Brazilian metal icons Sepultura release their upcoming album “The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart” on October 25th via Nuclear Blast.

In anticipation of this release, Andreas Kisser has provided a track-by-track breakdown of the album. Check it out below.

Intro:

“Actually the intro is the demo we did just before we went to the studio, with all the songs played at the same time! It’s like you are listening to all the songs that you will hear separately on the album at once. It sounds so great, noisy and powerful and it was a result of an accident that I had on my computer. Each song had its track so when I accidentally played the tracks together they came strong and beautiful so I decided to show the guys and they all liked it!”

Trauma of War:

“This will be the first song on the album and is one of the fastest and most brutal songs we ever did. The performance of our drummer Eloy is fantastic, it gave such an energy to the song that the guitars, bass and vocals had to top that level of brutality, for sure our strongest opener so far. I wrote the lyrics inspired by friends that went to war and came back with some kind of trauma, some kind of disturbance that they have to live with for the rest of their lives.”

The Vatican:

"An ironic tribute to the conclave that elected Argentinian Pope Francis I as the successor of Benedict XVI. This track has some Death Metal influences. The lyric tells the story of how the Vatican was created, filled with blood, orgy, murders, corruption, adultery. It’s one of the most evil and perverse lyrics I ever wrote.” More...

Sepultura Reveals Album's Track Listing

Sepultura's new album "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" is set for European release on October 25th via Nuclear Blast.

The artwork was created by Brazilian artist Alexandre Wagner, who specializes in charcoal drawing techniques. The band has now revealed the track listing, which is available after the jump.

In preparing the statements below, Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser & artist Alexandre Wagner collaborated with Brazilian journalist Emanuel Leite, Jr. to gather their thoughts. Here, Kisser reveals how he discovered the work of Alexandre Wagner:

"It was an indication of Silvio Bibika, who was my roadie for a long time. He always shows me things in general that Sepultura might need. He told me about Alexandre - who is from Belo Horizonte [in Brazil, where Sepultura was founded] - a year ago. So before we went to the United States to record the album, I was at his house to talk about the cover, tell him the album title, and talk about the concept of the film Metropolis so he could do something original. But when I saw the picture with the drawing, I thought it was all about what we wanted and we did not need something new. I also asked him to do a tribal ‘S’ in the cover’s style, which will be on the back cover."

Album artist Alexandre Wagner comments on his creation: "This series of work in charcoal drawing [for the album] I did when I still lived in Belo Horizonte. They were all made there and are quick drawings without much reference, almost an experimentation that may have come from a desire to use the most basic of basic materials - coal, paper and wood. The cover design was ready, Andreas saw and liked it. We talked a little more and I also sent some other pictures for the booklet. I was pleased with the choice of the theme of the album; I like [Austrian filmmaker] Fritz Lang very much and not to mention only Metropolis, but Dr. Mabuse der Spieler [Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler, Lang’s 1922 film] is a fucking movie!"
