180 gram vinyl housed in gatefold sleeve.

"The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart" is the 13th full-length studio album by Brazilian thrash metal act Sepultura. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in October 2013. Sepultura´s career has been quite an interesting and at times bumpy ride. From underground cult fame in the eighties, to international acclaim and commercial success in the early- to mid nineties, culminating in the ugly split with lead vocalist/guitars Max Cavalera in 1997. The quality of the band´s output since then have been a bit up and down, but there is no doubt that Max Cavalera´s departure from the band was also a fan divider and that has affected both fans and critic´s opinions on all post-Max Cavalera Sepultura releases.

While Sepultura played thrash metal up until the early nineties, they began playing a more alternative style of metal already before Max Cavalera left the band, and many of the albums with his replacement Derrick Green, have featured a sound that lean more towards alternative metal than towards their original thrash metal sound. From "Dante XXI (2005)" and onwards Sepultura have begun to incorporate more and more thrash metal elements to their music again and that trend continues on "The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart", where the thrash metal elements are dominant and the alternative metal elements few and far between (most prominent in "Grief" and in the Chico Science & Nação Zumbi cover "Da Lama ao Caos"). Harsh thrashy riffing, aggressive shouting (and distorted) vocals and pounding drumming (spiced up with some tribal percussion) are the main ingredients of the music.
