SEPULTURA's official web site has been updated with a video file featuring the group's guitarist, Andreas Kisser, talking (in Portuguese) about the concept and artwork of the band's new album. The clip, which features a full brand new song playing in the background, can be viewed at this location (Windows Media).SEPULTURA's 11th full-length album, tentatively titled entitled "Dante XXI", is being recorded at Trama Studios in São Paulo, Brazil for an early 2006 release via SPV Records. The group had previously used Trama Studios to record the "Revolusongs" EP, which contained cover versions of songs from such acts as MASSIVE ATTACK to HELLHAMMER to JANE'S ADDICTION, and was included in the limited-edition digipack version of 2003's "Roorback". Working under the watchful eye of producer Andre Moraes (with whom they've previously worked on various Brazilian film soundtracks), SEPULTURA's follow-up to "Roorback" will be "like a metal soundtrack for a movie, based on 'The Divine Comedy', but making a parallel with the days and situations we live today," says Kisser. The ten or eleven songs that will make it to the finished album are all based on the epic poetic masterpiece "The Divine Comedy" written by Italian author Dante Alighieri in the early 14th Century. The three main components of "The Divine Comedy" are Dante's descriptions of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. In addition to the 10 tracks that are set to appear on "Dante XXI", SEPULTURA are recording two cover songs — JUDAS PRIEST's "Screaming for Vengeance" and SICK OF IT ALL's "Scratching the Surface" — which will be released as single b-sides in the future.
