SEPULTURA Performs MINISTRY Classic In London; Video Available

Fan-filmed video footage of Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA performing a cover version of the MINISTRY classic “Just One Fix”on June 30, 2011 at O2 Islington in London, England can be seen below.

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser recently described MINISTRY as “a band that was very influential on SEPULTURA‘s music on the early ’90s. We toured with them in 1992 [and] it was a great tour where we learnt a lot. MINISTRY showed a new way of playing heavy/aggressive music, pioneers of the industrial metal style.”

SEPULTURA‘s version of “Just One Fix” can be found on the band’s new album, “Kairos” (an ancient Greek word signifying a time in between, a moment of undetermined period of time in which something special happens), which was released in Europe on June 24 and in North America on July 12 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 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 a cover version of THE PRODIGY‘s “Firestarter”.

Commented Kisser: “This album is inspired by ourselves, SEPULTURA, our whole history and all the experiences, after 26 years of a career, with many changes inside and outside the band, we are still here, in 2011, touring, playing, recording and doing what we love the most, to live for music. This is the kind of feeling on ‘Kairos’, all the lyrics are talking about us, our families, relationship with managers, labels, press and the fans, our experiences on stage and touring the world. It is a very intimate album, very personal views. Sound-wise, it has a little bit of everything we did in the past, plus new elements that we always bring to every new SEPULTURA album.”
