Recorded in: Chepstow Castle, Chepstow, Wales (well, some of it)
While most of Sepultura’s fifth album was recorded in Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire, Sepultura opted to do one track – the ambitious, acoustic, multi-percussionist instrumental Kaiowas – live in the ruins of Chepstow Castle. Though no creepy goings-on were reported in the session, the castle is supposedly haunted by the ghost of Henry Marten, an English lawyer who died there in 1668 after choking on a chicken bone. Surprisingly intellectual for ghosts, a spectral game of chess once played out in a locked display cabinet in the gift shop, as the pieces moved overnight with no signs of disturbance. The gift shop has also had the odour of onions waft through it with no obvious source, and it turns out to have been built above what was once a kitchen. If it was the smell of apples, and it really got on Sepultura’s nerves, Max Cavalera could have shouted, “Fruits! Bloody fruits!"
