With the debut of their "I Am The Enemy" lyric video, Sepultura have even momentum around their forthcoming studio album, Machine Messiah, due out on January 13th, 2017 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Said Andreas Kisser of the song: The song 'I Am The Enemy' was one of the last songs we worked on before going to Sweden to record the album, it's really simple and straight forward with a strong influence of the hardcore scene of the 90's.
"The lyrics talk about ourselves as human beings, with concepts and pre-concepts implanted in our heads through education, religion, the environment and all of our own experiences. We are the problem and the solution, do not blame anything or anyone else but yourself, you are your own enemy. Face yourself, rethink your life and then you'll have a chance to make a better world for yourself.
"We are playing the song live already and the reaction is being amazing, now you all have the chance to listen to the album version, play it loud!"
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. The cover artwork was created by Filipino artist Camille Della Rosa.
