Brazilian heavy metal icons, Sepultura have unleashed their new music video "Phantom Self" which provides another thrilling look into their fourteenth studio album Machine Messiah. The video, directed by Mauricio Eça, delivers some haunting images and sociocultural criticism. The album was produced by the band and Jens Borgen (Soilwork, Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth) of Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden and is inspired by the robotization of our society.

"Phantom Self' starts with a short intro based on the Brazilian rhythm 'Maracatú,' original from the Northeast region of Brazil", explains mastermind Andreas Kisser. "We mixed this very Brazilian sound with violins performed by a Tunisian violin ensemble, the Myriad Orchestra. This was a suggestion from Jens Bogren, the producer of the album, who worked with this orchestra before and he thought it could be a nice combination. We used the violins on different parts of the song and that opened a lot of new possibilities, specially for my guitar parts, it was great to have that conversation between guitar and violins making the part even more special. It’s a very heavy song, with a lot of groove, one of the most complete songs we ever worked with and it’s taking Sepultura to a new level!"
