As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, yesterday saw the release of “Quadra” (portuguese for “playground”), the new concept album from Brazilian metal icons Sepultura. To mark the occasion, Sepultura has lauched a stunning music video for their new single, “Means To An End”. Watch it here:


Guitarist Andreas Kisser comments on the new song/video:
“‘Means To An End’ is our third video/single taken form our new album ‘Quadra’. Is the second song on the album, it is a very powerful and complex theme that inspired director Otavio Juliano and Luciana Ferraz to make an amazing visual interpretation of the song. It shows the human greed with no limits, the arrogance and the ignorance of ourselves, we think we can do it all without knowledge, without respect. Judas and his treason, defying death in a chess game, saving money for who’s knows what and how much is enough? It was shot in the city of Jundiaí, in an old train station museum and in Sao Paulo as well, at an old bank safe, it was the biggest in Latin America from the 50’s till it got shut down in the late 80’s. We had a lot of fun working on it and I’m very happy with the final result, hope you like it! See you on the ‘Quadra’ World Tour.”
