Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA have released a video for the song "The Vatican", which is taken from the band's new album, The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart.

In his SEPULTURA blog, Andreas Kisser described the song 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."

And the guitarist was right, "The Vatican" is not only one of the best songs on the album, but also one of the most brutal songs in the history of SEPULTURA. The clip presented today, directed by Rafael Kent and Okent Films team, does justice to the melodic and lyrical context of "The Vatican", presenting a daring, defiant, oppositional, and considering the subject matter, potentially controversial videographic record.

Kisser believes that the clip represents very well the music and lyrics. "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", he reported.

For the video’s director, Rafael Kent, the clip had to show, aesthetically, an environment that referred to the Catholic Church, which, in his opinion, was achieved without any need to record or reproduce a temple. "We tried to have some visuals that resembled environments from the Church but were not directly in the Church. The filming also accompanies this aesthetic; we looked for darker and more obscure scenes giving the impression that the kind of thing that happens in the clip and story are things that happen on the sly", he said.

The video was recorded in a building in downtown São Paulo-SP and the recordings were made in less than 24 hours. “First we went after a location. In fact we had already filmed there before, Trackers, located in São Paulo. It’s an old building and has various environments. Really nice spot. We recorded in a night, we arrived at Trackers at 4pm and left in the morning. I went to bed at 6:30?, said Rafael.

The director demonstrates awareness that his video could generate controversy and be criticized, as it boldly exposes topics sensitive to the Church, and a society whose formation is grounded in Catholicism and Christianity. "The lyrics speak of how the Church dominates man’s mind, how many years of domination through faith have passed, and the bloody past of the Church... We all know dark moments in the Catholic religion. One of our concerns (or bets) was 'let's bet on how many places the clip will be banned'. I believe that regarding prohibition, backlash, and so on, this video clip comes with it all', he reflected.

The director, however, seeks to justify his work, highlighting that the theme, though delicate, has been increasingly debated in the public sphere. "It is a controversial subject, but which today is part of our life and the news. How many times has the Church had to apologize before its faithful as to certain attitudes of the priesthood?" he asked.
