SEPULTURA Announce New Album, To Release Machine Messiah In January 2017
When Machine Messiah comes out, it'll have been four years since Sepultura's previous album The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart. For what it's worth, the latter record wasn't the most awful thing in the world, so it'll be interesting to hear how Machine Messiah shapes up comparatively. The album was produced by Jens Bogren, whose resume includes bands like Soilwork, Leprous, and Opeth, and has artwork done by Filipino artist Camille Della Rosa.
According to the band, the album is about "the robotization of our society nowadays" and the cycle of a mechanized society coming to an end. Check out the artwork for the album below, which is admittedly pretty damn awesome. Hopefully the music will match up?
Machine Messiah is out January 13, 2017 via Nuclear Blast.
