The first impression with every record, before you even get a chance to hear the opening notes, is the artwork. And regardless of your individual opinion on Machine Messiah for it’s track, there is no denying the artwork is simply stunning. Originally a painting by Filipino artist Camille Dela Rosa titled “Deus Ex-Machina,” the artwork fits in brilliantly with the interesting concept Andreas Kisser wanted to explore with Machine Messiah. ‘Machine Messiah’ has kept the spirit of Sepultura alive and the band has been on road fro more than a year now promoting this crushing record.
Sepultura vocalist Derrick Green recently had a chat with Metal Wani’s Jake Patton to discuss the bands recently announced 2018 tour of Australia with Death Angel.
They talk about the gaps between Australian tours, the bands expectations for this tour; and Derrick answers just where the Australian Sepultura fans fit on the scale of craziest fans in the world.
They also discuss the bands latest album Machine Messiah, and the reception of the new material in a live setting. They talk about the recording process, specifically touching on some of Derrick’s vocalizations; and why the band continues to push the boundaries three decades into a career.
