Sepultura's next album to feature brass section


Sepultura have revealed they’ll feature a brass section on their upcoming album, due out later this year.

The Brazilian metal veterans say they’re collaborating with Maestro Renato Zanuto again on the follow-up to 2013’s The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart.

The band say: “We have some different heavy sounds for our new album. These are musicians from Teatro Sao Pedro recording some arrangements at Dynamic Studios written by Maestro Renato Zanuto, who also participated in the album The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart. It’s getting amazing.”

Sepultura shared a trailer for their upcoming documentary film earlier this year. Release details will be revealed in due course.

They’ll also tour with Kreator and Soilwork in February and March of next year.
