SEPULTURA: English-Language Video Report On Indian Tour Posted Online

King of Good Times has posted an English-language video report on SEPULTURA's recent visit to India. Watch it in three parts below.

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser previously stated about the group's trip to India, "I visited some beautiful places in Delhi like the India Gate, a monument built honoring the Indian soldiers that fought at the World War I, similar to the Triumph Arc in Paris. At the other side of the Arc, following the road, is the Government Palace, residence of the Indian Prime Minister. Other nice place was the Qutub Minar, a huge tower built 1,000 years ago, the tallest tower in Delhi. Around the tower are the ruins of a school and many tombs from unknown people.

"But Delhi, like any other big city, is chaotic. The poverty on the streets is mind-blowing. Starving families begging for food, money and anything they can get. People living in unbelievable conditions, but they are very nice, not violent at all and they seem conformed with their situation.

"We played at an open-air venue that was full of anxious SEPULTURA fans. The show was great, they knew all the songs and their reaction was amazing. The adrenaline we felt on stage helped us to feel better and to minimize the effects of the jet lag.

"Next day, we traveled by bus to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal. On the way to Agra we pass trough Mathura, the birth place of Krishna, with many temples and pilgrims. Every time we pass a state border we had to stop to pay a toll and every time we stopped people gathered around the bus trying to sell things, with monkeys jumping around on a leash, snakes charmers, etc…

"Agra is dirtier and more chaotic than anything else I ever experienced, but as soon we arrived at the Taj Mahal everything changed. The place is beautiful, magical, peaceful, unbelievable. We spent some hours there learning about the history with a local guide. It's a story of love, passion, great strength and faith. Amazing! We took the road back and we rested at the Hotel for the travel next day to Shillong. What an adventure!"

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]

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser is putting the finishing touches 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", taken 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.
