On this song is like we are having a conversation with ourselves, looking inside, making a balance of all these years, the ups and downs of our career and life in general. A very honest look in the mirror, facing our weak and strong points, accepting certain things that cannot be changed and move forward always. Is a kind of a dark vibe in the music, with clean guitars and a speaking style vocals, then going to a heavy part with crushing double bass drumming.

6 – MASK

Here we attack the people from the internet, that have nicknames and they never show their faces, people that slay everybody without showing their credentials, hiding behind a mask to speak loud. The music I wrote on the road, on the A-Lex tour, the only one done like that, Jean have his recording gear with him and I play some riffs on the guitar, creating the structure for the song, very trash as well!

This song is a leftover from the “A-Lex” sessions, there were two songs that did not were on the album and one of them we decided to use it for this one. Is a very raw, violent song, that still resembles the vibes of the Clockwork Orange. We wrote an extra heavy slower part in the middle and re-recorded in the Kairos sessions, same studio but different era and a different producer. Is just pure trash with aggressive lyrics.


A song to our families, then and now, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandmas, wifes and kids. Since the day we were born, taking care of our firsts steps in this world and showing the right path, education and love. Today we have our own families and that is what keeps us with motivation and strong, without them we are nothing. The music comes from a very old riff, when Derrick joined Sepultura, back in 97. He brought this riff that we hated at that time but now it worked out great. It was the right moment for it.
