SEPULTURA Writing New Material; Video Available

Video footage of Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA in their São Paulo rehearsal room writing material for their next studio album can be viewed below.

In a February 8, 2008 online posting, SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser wrote, "We started the writing process for the SEPULTURA new album today in our studio in São Paulo. All the equipament was prepared yesterday by our crew and today we tried some ideas for songs. We will follow kind of the same steps we did in our last album, 'Dante XXI', but this time we will be inspired by the book 'A Clockwork Orange', first released in 1962 written by Anthony Burgess and it's a movie, a classic, made by Stanley Kubrick. We will write our soundtrack for this story and Burgess' life will be an inspiration also to write the music, lyrics and for the artwork. Today at the studio, really good ideas came up, the vibe is great and the songs are coming in a easy and brutal way."

SEPULTURA has scheduled the following dates:

Feb. 23 - Fortaleza, Brazil @ Arena
Mar. 13 - Lima, Peru @ [to be announced]
Mar. 14 - Guayaquil, Equador @ [to be announced]
Mar. 15 - Quito, Equador @ [to be announced]

Andreas Kisser recently completed work on his solo debut, entitled "Hubris I & II". A two-disc set, it is tentatively scheduled for release in April 2008 via Holland's Mascot Records. The CD was recorded in part at A Voz do Brasil studio in São Paulo, Brazil.

Kisser previously stated about his upcoming solo album, "I'm very pleased with the result so far and I'm excited to hear it all done. It was a long process, a learning process and a great experience. It's a musical journey trough the influences I had for last 15 years of my life and at the same time it's very different from everything I did so far."

SEPULTURA's video for the song "Ostia" can be viewed on YouTube. The second clip from the Brazilian thrashers' "Dante XXI" album was shot at a studio in São Paulo, Brazil in March 2007 prior to the band's departure for their European tour. During the following week, the video crew and the main actor shot the outdoor scenes in downtown São Paulo. The script, which adapts the story from the book "The Divine Comedy" to the modern days, was directed by Geraldo Moraes.
