Eagle Rock Entertainment will release "Sepultura With Les Tambours Du Bronx: Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio" on Blu-ray and DVD on September 15. The footage on the disc was filmed at the legendary Rock In Rio festival in SEPULTURA's home country of Brazil on September 19, 2013. It is a spectacular performance which sees the band accompanied throughout by the French industrial percussion group LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX. The sheer volume of sound and the powerful presentation of the songs sets this apart from any previous SEPULTURA concert release. In addition to the live show, the set will include a bonus documentary feature.
"Sepultura With Les Tambours Du Bronx: Metal Veins - Alive At Rock In Rio" is the first SEPULTURA live release since 2005 and the band's first-ever Blu-ray release.
Founded in 1987, LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX beat 225-liter barrels with beech wood bats or even axe handles. In more than 1000 concerts they've smashed about 16,000 barrels and more than 110,000 broken "drum sticks!"
SEPULTURA's setlist was as follows:
05. Delirium (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
06. Fever (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
07. We've Lost You
08. Firestarter (THE PRODIGY cover)
09. Requiem (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
10. Structure Violence (Azzes)
12. Big Foot (LES TAMBOURS DU BRONX cover)
13. Roots Bloody Roots
SEPULTURA's new album, "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart", sold around 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD came out on October 29, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Although it was inspired by Fritz Lang's classic 1927 movie "Metropolis", "The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" is not a concept album or a soundtrack like its precedessors "Dante XXI" (based on "The Divine Comedy") and "A-Lex" (based on "A Clockwork Orange").
"The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart" was tracked over a 40-day period at producer Ross Robinson's (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SLIPKNOT) studio in Venice, California and was mixed and mastered by co-producer Steve Evetts, who previously worked with SEPULTURA on the "Nation" (2001), "Revolusongs" (2002) and "Roorback" (2003) albums, in addition to having collaborated with Ross on a number of other projects in the past.
