Sepultura debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its single ‘Means To An End‘ Friday. The video crosses footage of the band performing its new single with a cinematic presentation that finds two men playing a game of chess. The whole thing ends with a surprising twist for the winner.
Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser talked about the video treatment in a recent interview.
“Means To An End’ is our third video/single taken from our new album Quadra,” he said. “It is the second song on the album. It is a very powerful and complex theme that inspired director Otavio Juliano and Luciana Ferraz to make an amazing visual interpretation of the song. It shows the human greed with no limits, the arrogance and the ignorance of ourselves. We think we can do it all without knowledge, without respect. Judas and his treason, denying death in a chess game, saving money for who knows what and how much is enough?”
Additionally, Kisser talked about the process of the video’s shoot.
“It was shot in the city of Jundiai, in an old train station museum, and in Sao Paulo as well, at an old bank safe,” he said. “It was the biggest in Latin America from the 50s ’til it got shut down in the late 80s. We had a lot of fun working on it and I’m very happy with the final result. Hope you like it! See you on the “Quadra World Tour!”
