Sepultura has posted the first in a series of track-by-track breakdowns online for the band's new album "Kairos." The band's commentary on the first four tracks is as follows:
"This album is inspired by ourselves, Sepultura, our whole history and all the experiences, after 26 years of a career, with many changes inside and outside the band, we are still here, in 2011, touring, playing, recording and doing what we love the most, to live for music. This is the kind of feeling on Kairos, all the lyrics are talking about us, our families, relationship with managers, labels, press and the fans, our experiences on stage and touring the world. It is a very intimate album, very personal views. Sound wise, it have a little bit of everything we did in the past, plus new elements that we always bring to every new Sepultura album.
"1- SPECTRUM: The first song of the album express what the album is all about, our experience being Sepultura, all the stuff we saw and lived in this 26 years. The way we see the world, the way we experienced the world, the whole spectrum of our living. The riff is very simple, yet very powerful, it sets the tone for the whole song, kind of an hypnotic effect, it was the first riff that I wrote for Kairos and it turned out to be the first song of it.
"2 - KAIROS: The title track, what we talked about here is a very special concept of time, which is not chronological but a specific moment of opportunity and change, the present is what it is, the past is a collection of kairos moments and the future a consequence of the present, it is a very powerful concept which gave us the possibility to talk about ourselves and what is Sepultura today, NOW. It is a song with three different vibes, starts with a heavy, slow riff, then goes to a intermission, which is the lead part and then it ends with an upper beat with heavy picking riff.
"3 - RELENTLESS: This song talks about our endless fight to keep our music going, regardless of any difficulties we had passed or are passing, nothing is easy and demands a lot of energy and work. We never lost sight of our goals and we never stopped, with integrity and respect. The music brings more of the old feeling of trash metal, raw and direct.
"4 - JUST ONE FIX: A Ministry cover, a band that was very influential on Sepultura´s music on the early 90´s, we toured with them in 1992, it was a great tour where we learnt a lot. Ministry showed a new way of playing heavy/aggressive music, pioneers of the industrial metal style."

Brazilian thrash metal legends Sepultura has revealed the front cover artwork for their forthcoming new studio album, "Kairos." You can check it out below. The album will be the group's first for their new record label Nuclear Blast and will be released in Europe on June 24th and then in North America on July 12th.
Speaking on the artwork, artist Eric Sayers commented: "I started by researching Kairos for images and meaning as soon as the band gave me the title. Kairos is about time, the actions we take, and the positive or negative repercussions that follow. I knew the image would have wings. I also knew I would somehow need to represent time, but in a way that is timeless. Speaking with Andreas, he had an idea for a gel skull. I was uncertain how I would make that happen, but I did and it is unique. Actions and their repercussions are represented by the arms, transitioning from the strong healthy arm on top and the decrepit hand below. The background is made from a couple of photos I took on a recent trip to Morocco. They give the composition a mystical quality. It was an honor for me to work with Sepultura. I am a long-time fan of this legendary band." More...
