On "A-Lex", SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser and his three colleagues, Derrick Green (vocals), Paulo Jr. (bass) and new addition Jean Dollabella (drums), have dedicated themselves to Anthony Burgess's book "A Clockwork Orange", creating an awesome thrash metal opus around this timeless and exciting subject.

The recording is divided into four chapters, the first three of which cover the familiar plot from the movie, while chapter four reflects the final part of the story from the book. "Every chapter, from 'Alex I' to 'Alex IV', starts with a brief introduction which allows the listener to follow the story at all times," Kisser explains.

The material was produced by SEPULTURA and Stanley Soares at the Trama Studios in Sao Paulo and mastered by George Marino at New York's Sterling Sound studios. "A-Lex" is the first SEPULTURA album to feature new drummer Jean Dolabella, who joined the fold during the "Dante XXI" tour.

Video footage of SEPULTURA rehearsing for their upcoming European can be viewed below. According to a posting on the band's web site, "The setlist is set and you'll guys will have some surprises for the shows. Tour starts in Europe by the end of the month. Later on North America in March, summer festivals and more (Asia, Oceania) shows till 2010. This will be one hell of a busy year for SEPULTURA and 'A-Lex'!"

SEPULTURA filmed a video for the song "We've Lost You" on December 15, 2008 in São Paulo, Brazil. Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.
