Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA will headline the Red Horse Muziklaban Festival in Manila, Philippines on November 29. The 15,000-capacity event is a local band competion, and since it is its 10th anniversary, the promoters decided to make it special and invite a great international metal band as a headliner.

The CD, which is based on the Anthony Burgess novel "A Clockwork Orange" (later turned into the classic film by Stanley Kubrick), was recorded at in São Paulo, Brazil at Trama Studios and was mixed at Mega Studios. According to SEPULTURA, the follow-up to 2006's "Dante XXI" features 18 songs with a total playing time of 60 minutes and was completed in record time because it is basically a recording of the band's studio jams captured over a three-month period.
