Brazilian thrash metallers Sepultura have announced that they have completed the recording process for their upcoming album, including two cover songs - one of which may surprise fans.
The band has recorded 13 tracks, and while the complete tracklist has not been released, it has come to light that Sepultura will be covering Ministry’s "Just One Fix" and 90’s electro-dance group The Prodigy’s "Firestarter," expected to be released as bonus tracks on special editions of the album.
Produced by Roy Z. (Halford, Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson), the upcoming album is expected to be released in May via Nuclear Blast Records. The band has not revealed the album’s title at this time.
The band plans to embark on a US headlining tour this Spring in support of the new album, featuring Austria’s Belphegor, Norway’s Keep of Kalessin, California’s Bonded By Blood, and others as support. Nevermore will join the tour after May 23rd, replacing Belphegor in the lineup.
