Sepultura set out to push some buttons with their new video for the new track "The Vatican". This song appears on their newest release The Mediator Between The Head And Hands Must Be The Heart and today the thrash metal band premiered the video for it. Rafael Kent directed the video for Okent Films and you can watch it here. Guitarist Andreas Kisser has described the song "The Vatican" as "one of the tracks that has some death metal influences, whose lyrics tell the story of how the Vatican was created, filled with blood, orgy, murders, corruption, adultery... it's one of the most evil and perverse lyrics I ever wrote."
Andreas Kisser also comments on the video: "It shows various obscure facets of the church, from corruption to pedophilia, a dark side that many people like to ignore. The actors were very well selected, all with strong and striking expressions. The video tells the story of a priest who wants to leave the church because of all this dirt, and suffers pressure from the inside not to leave. It's rather heavy and tense."
