Original Sepultura Guitarist Joins Band Onstage

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser checks in with the following update:

"Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Thursday I played in Sao Paulo, in a small music bar called AO Vivo Groove Bar, with Daniel La Torre (Hammond) and Vasco Fae (Drums, Vocals and Harmonica).

Joao Gordo (R.D.P Singer, VJ MTV Brazil) was there too and we did a blues version of an old Brazilian song very known by all. It was great jamming.

On Friday, at the same stage, I was invited by Marina De La Riva to play at her show. She also sang a song at my show, we did 'Since I've Been Loving You' from LED ZEPPELIN. A Spectacular voice, soft, full of feelings and emotions, performing the song in a unique way. Wonderful! At her gig I did a Cuban song called 'Juramento', where I played a guitar lead. Gracias por todo De La Riva!

After that I went to Belo Horizonte to jam with Sepultura. It was the best show we did in BH. I think it was the first time we actually played songs from every album. The high point on the set was when we called Jairo Guedz (TORMENTOR), first Sepultura guitar player (1984-1987), to play two songs with us, songs that he was a writer too. 'Necromancer' from Bestial Devastation and 'Troops Of Doom' from Morbid Visions.

The crowd went mad, they were singing and screaming, enjoying every minute of it. I dedicated the show to Joao Dollabella, second child from Jean who was born on September 21st. Great vibes with all Jean's parents and relatives around together with our old friends. Unforgettable! Thanks a lot to all in Belo Horizonte for this great night!"

The setlist for Sepultura's September 22nd date in Belo Horizonte was as follows: 'Dark Wood Of Error', 'Refuse/Resist', 'Convicted In Life', 'False', 'Dead Embrionic Cells', 'Sepulnation', 'Ostia', 'Crown & Mitter', 'Desperate Cry/Escape To The Void', 'Spit', 'Boycott', 'Buried Words', 'Bullet The Blue Sky', 'Orgasmatron/Inner Self', 'Beneath The Remains', 'Slave New World', 'Territory', 'Arise', 'Kayowas', 'Biotech Is Godzilla', 'Troops Of Doom', 'Necromancer', 'Come Back Alive', 'Roots Bloody Roots'.

Mayhem Bassist Comments On Attila's Addition

As some of you may already know, MAYHEM have set "Ordo Ab Chao" as the title of their new album, due later this year. The band's upcoming CD will mark their first release with vocalist Attila Csihar (TORMENTOR, ABORYM) since their 1993 album, "De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas". Attila rejoined MAYHEM in November 2004 as the replacement for departed singer Maniac.

In a recent interview with Decibel magazine, bassist Necrobutcher said about Attila's addition to the group: "It's the inspiration we all needed in MAYHEM. Attila is more committed to the band than almost all three of us together, and that inspires us too. The songs from the rehearsal place sound great. We still have the same aggressiveness. Everything you want from MAYHEM is there. We didn't give in to any kind of commercial thoughts in any way. It's a step from our last album again. If you have our discography, then you will see that every album is completely different, which has something to do with the fact that we usually take two or three or four years in between each recording. There's only so much you can do with a guitar and a drum kit and a bass. We want to show our fans and ourselves that MAYHEM will always be quality over quantity. I'm pleased to say that we have released 38 songs in 21 years. It's all those bootlegs that make the MAYHEM collection look so fucking huge."
