Sepultura Complete Recording on 2020 Studio Album
"It's done," says Sepultura vocalist Derrick Green, relating to the band's next studio album. Though official details have yet to be revealed, Sepultura have announced via their social media that they have completed the recording on their next release, which by the looks of one of the hashtags could be coming in the fourth quarter of 2020.
"Vocals and guitars are complete! This is an epic creation, I can’t wait for you all to hear it!!," Green added in the post, while the hashtags reveal some other key elements. The disc was recorded at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with producer Jens Bogren.
This will be the band's first release since 2017's Machine Messiah and their 15th studio album overall.
Back in May, guitarist Andreas Kisser revealed that they started the new album process last September and October. In addition to the original material, Kisser stated that the band had been working on some covers and bonus tracks.
At the time he stated, "It's great that we have this tour in April [and May], that we leave the studio a little bit to come on stage and play again. I think it's gonna bring a whole new energy and motivation to go back and finish our work. We still have a lot to do, but we're going in the studio in August in Sweden with Jens Bogren, which is the same producer and the same studio we used for Machine Messiah. And yes, the idea is to put out the album in February 2020. We have a concept already, we have a name, but we cannot share it yet." But the #4q2020 hashtag suggests the album may arrive later than that initial projection.
