Professionally filmed video footage of SEPULTURA's entire September 19 performance at this year's edition of the Rock In Rio festival can be seen below. The band was joined on stage by Les Tambours Du Bronx, featuring sixteen drummers from France.
Founded in 1987, Les Tambours Du Bronx beat 225-liter barrels with beech wood bats or even axe handles. In more than 1000 concerts they've smashed about 16,000 barrels and more than 110,000 broken "drum sticks!"
SEPULTURA's setlist was as follows:
05. Delirium (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
06. Fever (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
07. We've Lost You
08. Firestarter (THE PRODIGY cover)
09. Requiem (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
10. Structure Violence (Azzes)
12. Big Foot (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
13. Roots Bloody Roots
SEPULTURA's new album, "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart", will be released on October 25 via Nuclear Blast Records. The artwork was created by Brazilian artist Alexandre Wagner, who specializes in charcoal drawing techniques.
Although it was inspired by Fritz Lang's classic 1927 movie "Metropolis", the CD, "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" is not a concept album or a soundtrack like its precedessors "Dante XXI" (based on "The Divine Comedy") and "A-Lex" (based on "A Clockwork Orange").
"The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" was tracked over a 40-day period at producer Ross Robinson's (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SLIPKNOT) studio in Venice, California and was mixed and mastered by co-producer Steve Evetts, who previously worked with SEPULTURA on the "Nation" (2001), "Revolusongs" (2002) and "Roorback" (2003) albums, in addition to having collaborated with Ross on a number of other projects in the past.
Robinson produced SEPULTURA's classic "Roots" album in 1995. Released in February 1996 by Roadrunner, it was the band's last studio album to feature founding member and vocalist Max Cavalera.
