Sepultura Premiere “Isolation” Music Video

Sepultura have premiered a new video for their new song “Isolation.” This track is from the band’s new album “Quadra,” which will be released on February 7.

Guitarist Andreas Kisser said the following about the video:

“The video was created by using the footage of the performance we did at the Rock in Rio festival last October. It was the world premiere of the song ‘Isolation’ which is a straight forward thrash track with an epic intro. Also we presented the new cover and the name of the album ‘Quadra’ to an amazing crowd of 100.000 people, a magical and historical moment in our career. I’m so glad we had filmed the performance and now we are ready to show the world. The ‘Quadra’ cycle begins!”

Vocalist Derrick Green also added the following about the song:

“‘Isolation’ is a song that was written about the U.S. prison system. The inhuman practice of solitary confinement changes the mental stability of prisoners.

They are not being rehabilitated but are transformed to become worst. Once they are released back into society we all pay the price for what has been done to them.”

Sepultura Reveal Cover Art For New Album “Quadra”, Discuss The Record’s Concept

Sepultura have revealed the cover art for their new album “Quadra,“ which is set to be released early next year. The artwork was created by Christiano Menezes and it can be seen below:

Guitarist Andreas Kisser commented:

“Quadra, among other meanings, is the Portuguese word for “sport court” that by definition is a ‘limited area of land, with regulatory demarcations, where according to a set of rules the game takes place.’

We all come from different Quadras. The countries, all nations with their borders and traditions; culture, religions, laws, education and a set of rules where life takes place. Our personalities, what we believe, how we live, how we build societies and relationships, all depends on these set of rules that we grew up with. Concepts of creation, gods, death and ethics.

Money, we are enslaved by this concept. Who’s poor and who’s rich, that’s how we measure people and material goods. Regardless of your Quadra you need money to survive, the prime rule to play this game called life. Hence the coin.

The coin is forged with the senator skull, who represents the set of rules and laws we live by; the world map on his head delimiting the borders of all nations, imaginary lines separating people by concepts of race and the sacred.”

Frontman Derrick Green also added the following about the recording process:

“The experience was like no other time in the studio. I felt the preparation was key in making the recording process go as smoothly as possible. We were relentless each day giving everything that we had until complete exhaustion of the mind, body, and soul. This album is a direct result of the sign of the times. The music is an evolution needed to push ourselves to go further than we ever have.”
