More Info:

Brazilian metal legends, Sepultura, return with their seventh album, THE MEDIATOR BETWEEN THE HEAD AND HANDS MUST BE THE HEART. Inspired by Fritz Lang's 1927 movie METROPOLIS, the band leans heavily on the strength of their thrash metal influences to make a statement against the dehumanizing effects of technology. Exploring the miseries and privileges associated with technological power, THE MEDIATOR BETWEEN THE HEAD AND HANDS MUST BE THE HEART Sepultura's angry dystopian documentary in sonic form also addresses the aftermath of natural disasters, the unfulfilled promises of religion and the still-widening divide & unbridgeable gap between pampered citizens who live in decadent luxury and the working poor who withstand unbearable living & working conditions to simply survive. The album also features an appearance by former Slayer drummer, Dave Lombardo.
