Today, NUCLEAR BLAST have released a new trailer featuring a snippet of IMMOLATION’s cover ofSEPULTURA’s ‘Morbid Visions’, featuring none other than Max Cavalera!
The band comments: “We had a great time recording SEPULTURA‘s ‘Morbid Visions’ as it was one of the classic songs we used to cover on stage back in the day when our band first started! So to record this track, and even more amazing to have Max as part of it, was something really special for us!! We are glad to share this with all the fans of extreme music and to be included on this installment with such great bands!”
