Sepultura To Release “SepulQuarta” Album In August

Sepultura will be releasing a new compilation album titled “SepulQuarta” on August 13. The effort will feature various quarantine performances that were recorded for their series of the same name. Andreas Kisser commented:

Therefore, we created this recurring event where we could talk with our fans around the world, play our music and exchange ideas, it was a blast! SepulQuarta kept us alive and strong throughout one of the most difficult times in human history.”

Testament, Ex-Megadeth, Etc. Members Guest On New Lost Symphony Song “Take Another Piece”

Lost Symphony have recruited Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme), Alex Skolnick (Testament), and Richard Shaw (Cradle Of Filth) for a new song titled “Take Another Piece.“ That track is from their new album “Chapter III,” which will be released on July 9.

Skolnick commented:

“When I first heard Lost Symphony, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew there’d be strong technical skills but was pleasantly surprised to hear how much else was going on: Melodic development, dynamics, compositional creativity and other elements not always present in music with this high a level of chops.

While there is plenty of fodder for fans of ‘shred,’ there is also no shortage of moments for listeners of true classical, soundtracks and other symphonic music as well. The music may sound serious, but the players have a serious sense of humor, which adds to the overall quality. It is humbling to share ‘guest guitar’ duties with Marty and Nuno, two guitarists I consider to be champions among our generation of players, and an overall honor to be brought in to participate.”

Friedman added:

“The folks in the Lost Symphony project have a deep love for guitar. Let me rephrase that, they are dangerously obsessed with it! Whenever I am invited to participate in their music, it is exciting to be around their tireless enthusiasm, and cool things always seem to happen because of it. The newest song, ‘Take Another Piece,’ may be my favorite of all the LS songs I`ve been a part of. There are some really unorthodox things going on.”

Watch Anthrax, Testament, Suicidal Tendencies, Etc. Members Cover Rush’s “Subdivisions”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Alex Skolnick (Testament), Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies), Brandon Yeagley (Crobot), and MeeEun Kim (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) have shared a quarantine cover of “Subdivisions.” You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“One year ago I had this idea to make a video while in quarantine. I was feeling pretty down about the passing of Neil Peart and about the Pandemic…I needed to be creative and play! I contacted Alex and Ra about doing a Rush song and video and they both liked the idea. I felt that they were probably feeling the same way I was, and that this would be a great way of jamming and entertaining while we were stuck home.

The response to the initial video was overwhelming! It really made us feel good during a bad time. A whole year ago…I cant believe it! It ended up being a year of making music and videos after all; I now have a record that’s coming out May 14 with most of the Jams. The Rush songs will be out on a special EP on Record store day in November. This song will be included on that.

Subdivisions is probably in every Rush fan’s top 10 songs, definitely one of their best. The keyboards dominate this tune and Neil‘s sound on it is so unique! His drum fills are so precise and powerful…like little hooks throughout the song, an air drummer’s dream! The lyrics tell a tale of life in the burbs and being shunned when you don’t meet a certain standard.

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out!

@alexskolnik @ra @brandon bring it big time – Alex captures Lifeson’s vibe so well, Ra kills Geddy’s bass parts and Brandon brings his amazing voice. We’d like to welcome @meeeun ,(Thanks to Alex for the suggestion), she is an awesome musician and kills the keyboard parts on this. I hope you enjoy this one, It may be one of the last ones for a bit…unless Alex wants to do that Emerson lake and palmer tune (hahahahaha)”
