Slipknot – Day Of The Gusano (DVD)

It seems most bizarre to think that a beast as all-conquering of the metal world as Slipknot had yet to take their larger-than-life stage show into Mexico City at any point in their twenty-year existence. Yet, until December 2015, and the .5 – The Grey Chapter’s incarnation of Knotfest,that particular duck had yet to broken. Continue reading

Sepultura DVD cover

Thrash metal legends Sepultura will release a brand new live DVD entitled Sepultura And Les Tambours du Bronx: Metal Veins – Alive At Rock In Rio (Eagle Rock) on September 16th.

From the press release via our friends at Earsplit PR:

In a spectacular performance that finds Sepultura accompanied throughout by the French industrial percussion group Les Tambours du Bronx, notorious for beating 225-liter barrels with beech wood bats or even axe handles, the show was recorded from the band’s main stage appearance at the legendary Rock In Rio gala in 2013. Featuring Sepultura ‘s most revered tunes including ‘Refuse/Resist’, ‘Territory’ and ‘Roots Bloody Roots’ which sees the audience chanting the entire cut from beginning to end, the sheer volume of sound, percussive enormity and powerful presentation sets this release apart from any previous Sepultura concert offering to date.”

With a one-hour run time divided into thirteen cuts, the album also features a cover of Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’, the fan-chanted ‘Sepulnation’ and music from the band’s Kairos full-length. Metal Veins – Alive At Rock In Rio will come available on CD, DVD and for the first time in the band’s history, Blu-Ray via a partnership with Rock In Rio, MZA Music and Eagle Rock Entertainment. In addition, the DVD includes an exclusive documentary of behind-the-scenes preparation with interviews, rehearsal and sound-check footage and clips of the band just seconds before they hit the stage.”

Metal Veins – Alive At Rock In Rio Track Listing:

1. Kaiowas
2. Spectrum
3. Refuse/Resist
4. Sepulnation
5. Delirium
6. Fever
7. We’ve Lost You
8. Firestarter (Prodigy Cover)
9. Requiem
10. Structure Violence
11. Territory
12. Big Hands
13. Roots Bloody Roots

Irregardless of critics and a constant groundswell of some fans and former members of the group calling for a reunion of the classic lineup, slagging the current band; the present incarnation of Sepultura has been remarkably consistent both live and on record for many years. In addition to the afore-mentioned Kairos, Sepultura’s other albums such as 2009s A-Lex and 2013s The Mediator Between the Head and Hands Must Be The Heart (Nuclear Blast) have been critically acclaimed, musically adventurous, totally brutal, and true to the sound and history of the band. The band formed by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera in Belo Horizonte BR turned 30 years-old last year.

Sepultura+2013

As front man Derrick Green told Ghost Cult in an interview in the fall of 2013, this DVD has been in the works for some time:

We’re actually going to record a DVD at Rock In Rio with a French percussion group and when we have finished the current touring cycle for the new album with Eloy, we can sit down and put something special together, like people from the past of Sepultura showing up and perform at some great location. That’s something we’ve been brainstorming about for quite some time. But like I said, we need to finish the current touring cycle for the new album, because I feel our new album is really worth it. We really need to get out and play these new songs. We wrote these songs and recorded them in the studio, but playing them live on stage is quite something different. We really need to experience that first and I think a lot of these new songs will be included on the upcoming DVD. But yeah, celebrating 30 years of Sepultura would include a beautiful location and a lot of special guests (laughs).”
