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."
