Machine Messiah is Sepultura’s fourteenth studio album, released on January 13, 2017, through Nuclear Blast. It was recorded in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren. The cover artwork is based on Filipino artist Camille Dela Rosa’s Deus ex Machina. Machine Messiah is loosely a concept album about humankind’s increasing dependency on technology, robots, artificial intelligence and automation. Sepultura’s guitarist, Andreas Kisser states that the main inspiration around Machine Messiah is the robotization of our society nowadays
Released in 2017, MACHINE MESSIAH is Sepultura's fourteenth full-length album and the eighth with Derrick Green from Cleveland, Ohio, on vocals. It only took Sepultura one album to ARISE to greatness after the departure of original main-man Max Cavalera (the first couple of albums with Green were relatively mediocre), but Andreas Kisser & the boys eventually did just that; and albums like NATION and MACHINE MESSIAH are Exhibit A. What makes this album a winner is that it's not one-dimensional.
However, this album isn’t just some blatant effort to return to the band’s origins. Upon hearing Machine Messiah, you can tell that the members of Sepultura are comfortable with the altered appearance they made to the band since 1998 and, presently, continue to explore their stylistic capabilities. So many curveballs are thrown around in this album, signalling that the band is pushing themselves to remain significant.

Machine Messiah continues to build on the diverse proggish elements displayed on Dante XXI, A-lex, and Kairos, while re-engaging with the thrash and hardcore that made 2013's The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart so compelling. From painter Camille Dela Rosa's amazing cover artwork on, this conceptual set is all of a piece. Machine Messiah is an ambitious, angry, hungry outing.

Sepultura Machine Messiah (Nuclear Blast). Throughout their career Sepultura have shifted sounds with each new record. Nation leaned mostly towards hardcore elements, whereas later albums such as Kairos and Mediator were more typical thrash metal. Then there are the more experimental releases such as A-lex and Dante XXI that spun both those sounds together for strong storytelling. No two songs ever sound alike on this album, which is an incredible feat. Upon the opening track Machine Messiah, there is this somber, semi-orchestral atmosphere that leads into the themes that are to follow. While the guitar goes back and forth from somber to sonic wails, Derrick Green does a great job keeping an emotional weight in his singing. I Am The Enemy takes no breather from the second the intro ends.
