Otávio Juliano, who directed Sepultura‘s new documentary “Sepultura Endurance”, recently talked to Folha De S.Paul, and revealed that Max and Igor Cavalera would not allow the filmmakers to use the band’s early material for the documentary. In fact, they actually wouldn’t even let them show footage of the current lineup performing old school tracks. “Sepultura Endurance” was recently screened in select theaters, but details regarding a home release have yet to be revealed.
Sepultura have announced that their new documentary “Sepultura Endurance” will premiere at The Regent Theater in Los Angeles, CA on May 21. A Q&A will take place after the film that day as well.
Andreas Kisser commented:
“I’m very happy and excited that the Sepultura movie is finally done. It is an amazing achievement from the director Otavio Juliano and the producer Luciana Ferraz from the Interface Films. Otavio followed the band on the road, on the studio and collected amazing statements from many people who are or were a part of this fantastic history.
Sepultura Endurance shows a story of this Brazilian band who conquered the world, suffered the ups and downs of a unique career that are still going strong. He filmed the historical show we did in Sao Paulo in 2015 for the celebrations of the 30th year anniversary tour and that’s the central line of the whole history, our music!
Through the music, we tell this story. We invite you to enter this time machine and explore the SepulHistory with no dramas or sensationalism. See you all at the Regent Theater on May 21st. Enjoy the ride!”

Sepultura have premiered a new video for their new song “Phantom Self.” This song is from the band’s new album “Machine Messiah,” which will be released on January 13.
Andreas Kisser said the following:
“‘Phantom Self‘ starts with a short intro based on the Brazilian rhythm ‘Maracatú’, original from the Northeast region of Brazil”. We mixed this very Brazilian sound with violins performed by a Tunisian violin ensemble, the Myriad Orchestra. This was a suggestion from Jens Bogren, the producer of the album, who worked with this orchestra before and he thought it could be a nice combination. We used the violins on different parts of the song and that opened a lot of new possibilities, specially for my guitar parts, it was great to have that conversation between guitar and violins making the part even more special. It’s a very heavy song, with a lot of groove, one of the most complete songs we ever worked with and it’s taking Sepultura to a new level!”
Derrick Green added:
“The lyrical idea came from an article that Andreas sent me. It was about a young man who had everything going for him and unfortunately was in a horrific car accident in the 70’s. After the accident he lost his entire idea of who he was. No one could figure out what was going on inside his mind. He would have glimpses of his former self but doctors realized that chemical elements of his mind had shifted. He had become an entirely different person within himself. There is this element of change that exists within all of us. This ability is important for our evolution as human beings to move forward even after traumatic events.”
Sepultura have posted the eighth studio video for their new album “Machine Messiah.” The effort will be released on January 13.
