While the pandemic paralyzed the entire world and prevented bands from touring, Latin America's biggest metal export Sepultura refused to sit back and act like an animal trapped in a cage. Like the flowers growing out of the deceased bird’s body depicted on the stunning colourful cover artwork by Eduardo Recife, the thrash metal pioneers from Belo Horizonte made good use of their unexpected free time to start a project that kept them busy throughout the entirety of 2020 - their new live album SepulQuarta will see the light of day on August 13th. The pre-order for this one-of-a-kind release featuring renowned guest musicians from all over the world is now live.

"'SepulQuarta' was born at the very beginning of the pandemic when everything was halted," guitarist Andreas Kisser remembers. "We had a new album out, but we couldn’t tour for it. Therefore, we created this recurring event where we could talk with our fans around the world, play our music and exchange ideas, it was a blast! 'SepulQuarta' kept us alive and strong throughout one of the most difficult times in human history."

Obviously, the Brazilian pioneers were not the only musicians feeling this way, so they started to connect with friends and colleagues worldwide and asked them to not only be part of their weekly podcast, but also join them in playing one of Sepultura’s classic tracks. From the safety of their homes, international stars like Devin Townsend, Scott Ian (Anthrax), Danko Jones, Matt Heafy (Trivium), and many more recorded a Sepultura track together with the band, which have now been mixed and mastered by Conrado Ruther for release via jewelcase CD, recycled 2LP vinyl in black and marbled (Nuclear Blast + band shop exclusive) and via all streaming platforms.

I hate to hijack another article but Pestilence released another song a few days ago called Deificvs.
The only reason I'm bothering to mention this is that this song is the perfect blend, the most incredible modern bridge between Consuming Impulse and Testimony. I didn't think Patrick had it in him to do songs like this anymore.
Just savage, haunting etc....
