Brazil's Showlivre.com recently conducted an interview with the four members of the Brazilian/American thrash metal band SEPULTURA as they were rehearsing for their just-launched European tour. The four-minute report, which includes footage from the rehearsal studio, can be viewed below. (Note: The interviews were conducted in Portuguese.)SEPULTURA's latest album, "A-Lex" — the group's first LP to be recorded without either of the founding Cavalera brothers (Max and Igor; on guitar/vocals and drums, respectively) — sold around 1,600 copies during its first week of release in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. SEPULTURA's previous CD, "Dante XXI", has sold 19,000 copies in the United States since its March 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "A-Lex" will receive a Canadian release on February 10 via SPV/Steamhammer. "A-Lex" (which stands for "no law" or "without law") is available in three versions: in a deluxe digipak with an embossed cover, in a regular jewel case and on a vinyl gatefold LP. 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 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. 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.
