||Sepultura has set Kairos as the title of their new album. Kairos (an ancient Greek word signifying a time in between, a moment of undetermined period of time in which something special happens) is tentatively due late spring/early summer through Nuclear Blast Records.
Speaking exclusively to Blabbermouth, Sepultura guitarist and main songwriter Andreas Kisser said: "The whole theme of the album is the concept of the time, and the title reflects that — it's like one concept of time which is not chronological, from one to two; it's like a an instant in time, it's a special time of change..."

Kairos was recorded at Trama Studios in São Paulo, Brazil with producer Roy Z. (Judas Priest, Halford, Bruce Dickinson, Helloween).
13 tracks were laid down during the sessions - including cover versions of Ministry's "Just One Fix" and The Prodigy's "Firestarter", both of which are expected to be made available as bonus tracks on various special-edition releases (although, according to Kisser, they turned out so well that they may also make the regular version of the album). Among the songs that will appear on the effort is "Born Strong", the subject matter of which is said to deal with balancing road life with raising a family as well as the band members' experiences as musicians and as people.
