Sepultura Planning To Release “SepulQuarta” Album Of Quarantine Collaborations

Sepultura are planning to release a “SepulQuarta” compilation album featuring some of the various quarantine performances that they have been sharing throughout the year. The effort will be released in 2021 and it will feature members of Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax, Trivium, and more.

Andreas Kisser commented:

“That’s great that ‘SepulQuarta’ allowed us to do this. [We had] was 57 guests [in total]. That’s a fucking amazing number.

We started it on April 22nd — [that] was [when we did] the first one — and we did every week for many months, and then we [did] it every 15 days, and then we changed the [day of the week when we uploaded new episodes]. And it was an amazing experience. 28 songs we played. It was more than a three-hour concert. It was amazing. Really.”

He also added:

“I think it’s really exciting, because it’s very unique. Of course, we’re gonna remix the sound and everything, make it the best that we can, but the versions are there. This is something [made] possible only because of the quarantine situation, of the lockdown. Imagine we’re doing an album like that in normal circumstances; it would be impossible.

And the great thing about that [is that] everybody was so excited to be a part of it and really happy to play Sepultura stuff. We [played with] people that influenced Sepultura; we had bands that were influenced by Sepultura, we had Brazilian artists; pop artists, metal artists. The version of ‘Ratamahatta’ was so unique, so different. And we didn’t see any limitations. We used two drums [on some songs], we used two basses on songs, three guitars and two vocals — not any limitations — and we managed to [make it] work.”

Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande Shares Drum Cover Of Metallica’s “Battery”

Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande has shared a drum cover of Metallica’s “Battery.” He said the following about that:

“I played my way!!! No audio editing, no samples, no triggers. Audio recorded with the EAD10 plugged straight to my phone (using the device’s camera to record the video). I believe the original song was recorded without a click track, which means that the tempo is volatile.”
