EMINENCE IN THE STUDIO WITHSEPULTURA’S PAULO JR.
PERFORMING AT THIS YEAR’S SXSWBrazilian metal outfit Eminence has announced details regarding its forthcoming album. The band has reunited with Danish producer Tue Madsen (Moonspell, The Haunted, Sick Of It All), who also produced their well-received 2008 album The God Of All Mistakes. Recording has begun at Minerio de Ferro Studios in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, with the album slated for a late 2013 release. Eminence has also confirmed that bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto, Jr. of South American metal giants Sepultura will make a guest appearance on the record.
“It was a great pleasure to once again work with my dear friend,” says Eminence’s guitarist/founding member Alan Wallace about being joined in the studio by Paulo Jr. The two also perform together in Brazilian metal project The Unabomber Files. Video footage of Wallace, Madsen and singer Bruno Paraguay recording with the Sepultura bassist can be seen below.

Following the recording sessions, Eminence will be heading to Austin, Texas, to perform at this year’s SXSW. These shows will mark West Coast metal fans’ first chance to witness the group’s face-melting brutality onstage. The group made its live U.S. debut this past fall during New York’s CMJ Music Marathon, performing aboard the Star of Palm Beach while sailing the Hudson River with Prong. That performance led The Village Voice to declaring Eminence as “a band to watch.” Details regarding Eminence’s SXSW appearances can be seen below.
Since forming in 1995, Eminence has taken Brazil’s metal underground scene by storm. Though its lineup has taken numerous forms over the years, Eminence’s extreme approach to melodic metal has always remained intact. Proof of this can be heard in the title track of The God Of All Mistakes.
