The Sepularmy (as SEPULTURA fans are affectionately called) has developed a flash minisite for SEPULTURA's new album, "Dante XXI", where you can find information related to this release, including audio samples and historical information behind each part of the book that the album is based on (the epic poetic masterpiece "The Divine Comedy", written by Italian author Dante Alighieri in the early 14th century). Check it out at this location.
As previously reported, SEPULTURA filmed a video for the song "Convicted in Life" (mp3) over a two-day period this past weekend in São Paulo, Brazil. Check out pictures from the shoot at this location.
"Convicted In Life" comes off the group's upcoming album, "Dante XXI" (view cover here), due in North America on March 14 via SPV.
SEPULTURA will embark on their European tour with IN FLAMES without drummer/founding member Igor Cavalera, who is taking a break from the group's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son, who was born in January. Former SOULFLY drummer Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003, has been enlisted to do the European tour, with the possibility that he will stick around for further touring activities beyond the spring.
SEPULTURA's European tour will not be the first time that the band have performed without Igor Cavalera. Back in April 2005, SEPULTURA completed a short tour of Mexico with the help of roadie Guilherme Martin (ex-VIPER, TOYSHOP) after Cavalera was unable to make the dates.
