Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA played a brand new song, “Kairos”, during their April 18, 2011 headlining concert at the Opera House in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below.
“Kairos” (an ancient Greek word signifying a time in between, a moment of undetermined period of time in which something special happens) is the title track of SEPULTURA‘s new album, “Kairos”, which is tentatively due this summer via Nuclear Blast Records. The artwork for the CD was created by Erich Sayers, a Los Angeles-based freelance digital artist and photographer whom SEPULTURA first met at the band’s recent concert at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California.
SEPULTURA‘s new CD was recorded at Trama Studios in São Paulo, Brazil with producer Roy Z. (JUDAS PRIEST, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON, HELLOWEEN). 13 tracks were laid down during the sessions, including cover versions of MINISTRY‘s “Just One Fix” and THE PRODIGY‘s “Firestarter”.
SEPULTURA was joined by the Orquestra Experimental de Repertório (conducted by Jamil Maluf) during the band’s appearance this past Saturday, April 16 at the Virada Cultural festival in São Paulo, Brazil. The concert was professionally filmed and recorded for a future CD/DVD release.
