Sepultura performed this last weekend at Rock in Rio and there the band played for the first time the unreleased song “Isolation” that will be part of the next studio album, successor of 2017’s Machine Messiah.
Hear the new song below:
Now the group officially unveiled the album cover, which was also released during the festival. The album will be called “Quadra”, according to Andreas Kisser, was chosen for the meaning of “a limited area with regulatory demarcations where, according to a set of rules, the game takes place.”
In portuguese “Quadra” means something like a “soccer court”, where people play sports inside lines and rules.
Andreas Kisser talked about the album in a press statement:
“We all come from different “Quadras” – countries and nations with their borders and traditions, culture, religions, laws, education and a set of rules where life happens. Our personalities, beliefs, way of life, the building of societies and relationships… all depend on this set of rules with which we grow. These are concepts of creation, gods, death and ethics”
The cover, which you can see below, was created by Christiano Menezes with executive production by Marcos Hermes. The album was produced by Jens Bogren, who also worked at Machine Messiah.
