Nyt omkring Sepultura´s kommende album.
Sepultura har nu afsløret cover artwork på deres kommende album, "Kairo". Manden der har lagt hånd på arbejdet, er Eric Sayers.
"I started by researching „Kairos" for images and meaning as soon as the band gave me the title," fortæller Sayers. ""Kairos" is about time, the actions we take, and the positive or negative repercussions that follow. I knew the image would have wings. I also knew I would somehow need to represent time, but in a way that is timeless. Speaking with Andreas, he had an idea for a gel skull. I was uncertain how I would make that happen, but I did and it is unique. Actions and their repercussions are represented by the arms, transitioning from the strong healthy arm on top and the decrepit hand below. The background is made from a couple of photos I took on a recent trip to Morocco. They give the composition a mystical quality. It was an honor for me to work with SEPULTURA. I am a long-time fan of this legendary band."
Guitarist Andreas Kisser tilføjer: "We were very lucky choosing the artist to design the cover of "Kairos". His name's Erich Sayers and we met him backstage in a SEPULTURA concert in LA last January. He left us his card and when we checked his website, we got very impressed by his awesome work. I explained to him the concept of "Kairos" and he fastly captured what we wanted, sending us ideas in that same week. He's a very talented guy, who knew how to draw the concept of the album. The cover is different to all the other covers we did in the past but it's "old school" at the same time, like the album itself. We're very happy with the result".
„Kairos", der er Sepultura's 12. studio album og bandets Nuclear Blast Records debut, udkommer 24. juni. „Kairos" er indspillet i Trama Studios i São Paulo, og er produceret og mixed af Roy Z. (JUDAS PRIEST, HALFORD, BRUCE DICKINSON, HELLOWEEN). Maor Appelbaum har lagt hånd på mastering.
