SEPULTURA have posted the following message on their official website:
"Almost done? Almost. Last Sunday Paulo finished recording the bass tracks for SEPULTURA's new album.
Most of the bass lines were done in the studio, while recording them. Song by song working on every detail. Amazing bass sound and really cool bass lines which will make the difference, for sure. You have to listen to understand!
The guys will have a busy week. Tomorrow they will all be in the studio to listen to all the songs - now with drums, guitar and bass - to check how is everything going so far. If needed, Andreas will redo some stuff and then Derrick starts recording vocals.
Thursday they take a break to practice for the show in the morning and do the sound check in the afternoon. On Friday the guys play with SLIPKNOT in São Paulo and right after that, back to the studio to finish recording the album."
The following update has been posted at SEPULTURA's official web site:
"SEPULTURA got back in the studio to record thei 11th full-length album. Everybody is in São Paulo, Brazil, close to their families and friends working everyday from noon to midnight.
"During the first week of September they recorded the drum tracks for the new songs. It works like this: Paulo [bass], Andreas [guitar] and Igor [drums] play along while the drums only are being recorded. Later Andreas records the guitar tracks playing along with the drum tracks. Then bass and vocals. Easy? Yep, that's why it takes at least a month to record a decent album.
"They'll record to cover songs to be released, later, as b-sides. JUDAS PRIEST's 'Screaming for Vengeance' and SICK OF IT ALL's 'Scratching the Surface'.
"The new album is based on Dante Alighieri's 'The Divine Comedy' and the 10 songs of the album are separated [into] three parts: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.
"This week Andreas starts recording the rythm guitars. Everything is going smooth in the studio."
A later posting on the web site reads as follows:
"SEPULTURA enters the third week of recordings. Last week Andreas started recording the rhythm guitar tracks. Two tracks for each song, using different guitars.
"The songs, with no vocals yet, start to get the sound and shape we'll hear on the album. We can identify some new stuff and influences in SEPULTURA's music. SEPULTURA won't let you down, that's for sure.
"This week Andreas will finish his part and later on, Paulo will get in the studio to record the bass lines."

Sepultura are expected to play some new songs when they support Slipknot in Sao Paulo on August 23. These will come from their new album, 'Dante 05', a concept record, which will be recorded in Sao Paulo and released next year by SPV. The concept is based on 'The Divine Comedy'.
Sepultura look to have now reconvened in the studio to begin recording their new album "Dante 05".

Roadrunner Records has advanced in the process of putting together the ground-breaking "Roadrunner All-Stars" record to mark the label's 25th Anniversary. The full-length release will contain original musical collaborations between past and present Roadrunner artists. Approximately 50 musicians are expected to participate in this record, making it a most elaborate collaboration project.
Four central musicians have been chosen to produce and write all the songs. Previously announced were Joey Jordison (Slipknot), Dino Cazares (ex-Fear Factory/Brujeria) and Robert Flynn (Machine Head). The fourth writer/producer has recently been selected - 19 year-old metal prodigy Matt Heafy will take the lead of the fourth team. His band, Trivium, has been called "the valedictorian(s) of the 2005 metal class" by Hit Parader Magazine. "It blew my mind to be asked to participate on this album and write a few tracks," says Heafy "It's an amazing honor to be able to record with artists that I used to emulate and listen to growing up." These four musicians will not only play on the songs they have written but also assemble a unique team of Roadrunner artists to appear on each track.
Notable progress has been made in Jordison's, Cazares' and Flynn's teams. Music has been laid down, but vocals have yet to be added. The vocalists for the tracks have not been confirmed as of yet. The artists that have contributed to the tracks recorded thus far are: More...
