SEPULTURA To Release 'Live In São Paulo' CD And DVD In November

Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA will release a live CD and DVD, entitled "Live in São Paulo", on November 8 via SPV USA. Recorded on April 3, 2005 in front of a rabid hometown crowd — 90 percent of which was reportedly decked out in SEPULTURA gear — the band played a "best of" setlist with tracks that go as far back as 1985's "Bestial Devastation" all the way to 2003's "Roorback".

"Live in São Paulo" will be released on CD and DVD as two separate packages. The complete track listing is as follows:

SEPULTURA's 11th full-length album, tentatively 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 SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas 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. Check out a new video clip of Kisser talking about the concept and artwork of the new album at this location (Windows Media). A video clip of the latest "Dante XXI" recording sessions can be found here (Windows Media).

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.
