Sepultura Guitarist Posts Studio Update

Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser has posted the following update via Myspace:

"We are working now for two weeks, recording our new album. I'm almost finished laying down the rhythm guitar tracks, using mostly my Fender Stratocaster Nation and my Jackson RR. The sounds are dirtier and heavier, both for the guitars and drums. I believe this will be our best work in many, many years. The book is very inspiring and the songs are flowing naturally. Soon we will record the orchestra on the version me, the director Alexey Kurkdjian and Jean did for the Ninth Symphony from Beethoven, I think our greatest challenge so far."

As previously reported, the bands new album will be based on the cult classic book/ film "A Clockwork Orange" and is expecting an October release date.

Igor Cavalera Speaks On Sepultura And Reunion

Igor Cavalera was recently interviewed by Metal-Rules.com, in which he had this to say about his former band Sepultura:

Metal-Rules.com: Are you on good terms with your former bandmates in SEPULTURA?

Igor: Yeah, yeah it's fine. You know it's like, no drama, I just wanted to continue to do different stuff I wish them all the best.

Metal-Rules.com: So they have your blessing to continue to use the name SEPULTURA without you or Max?

Igor: Yeah, I mean, it's not my choice. I left SEPULTURA same way as Max. I don't think it's my choice to stop them from doing it. I think people have to decide whether they want to see SEPULTURA without me and Max. It's not up to us, really.

Metal-Rules.com: How would you feel about one day doing a full-on SEPULTURA reunion?

Igor: Not really, man. Max wanted to have that, especially for his kids, he wanted his kids to see a SEPULTURA gig once, with the original lineup, but…I don't know, I like doing CAVALERA better. It's new music, for me it's great, I don't have a problem with anything we've done in the past, I'm really proud, I just don't wanna live from the past. So the reunion I think for me, it would be kinda like going back and living off what we did before. CAVALERA, for me, is more exciting.

Metal-Rules.com: I read that in the early days of SEPULTURA, you specially handpainted a SEPULTURA t-shirt for Mille Petrozza from KREATOR, you've come a long way since then…

Igor: We handpainted some SEPULTURA shirts, we sent one to Mille, we sent one to Chuck [Schuldiner, late DEATH mainman] and we sent one to Trey from MORBID ANGEL… and we saw the three of them wearing it in different fanzines, and at the time me and Max were like, "OK. That's it….we don't need to do anything else. We made it." We have these people that we fucking idolize wearing our shirts, that's OK, we don't need anything else. I remember being so happy about it….having the response from Chuck, from all these people and I was like cool, it's like having somebody like Lemmy wearing your shirt.

Sepultura Guitarist Andreas Kisser Checks In

Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser has posted the following update:

"This last weekend Iron Maiden came to Brazil once more to play an awesome concert and also to play a soccer game a day before the concert. I..ve played on the Brazilian side with the My Space team against the well trained Iron Maiden team. We lost the game but it was not an 8 x 0 game but a 7 x 2. Ok, still is a bad loss but we did score 2 goals. Steve Harris brought an English squad, very well trained, they play together for years, with an offside line made by their defense that was very pro. But it was an awesome afternoon, with a great game, beer and barbecue. Thanks to the great Steve Harris and crew for this great day, thanks to Thiago from My Space Brazil and EMI Brazil, I hope next time we could do a game with our team, Sepultura against the Iron team, and we will see the result.
The concert was amazing, full of classics in a Sold Out stadium!. Long Live Iron Maiden!!!

We are on our studios in SP developing the sounds and lyrics for our album. I..m very excited with the material so far and the nexts gigs we have here in Brazil we will be able to play a new song.

A. Kisser"

Max Cavalera Talks About Split From Sepultura

ARTISTdirect recently conducted an interview with Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, ex-SEPULTURA). A couple of excerpts from the chat follow:

ARTISTdirect: What was the creative process like for CAVALERA CONSPIRACY?

Max: Well, it's moved very differently, just because I'm playing with Igor [Cavalera, Max's brother] again. That's a huge thing in and of itself. We spent more than a decade apart. For over 10 years, we didn't speak or see each other. When the idea came to do this album, I was very excited. So I wrote a lot of riffs and lyrics. I wanted to do something different from what I normally do in SOULFLY. I like both, but SOULFLY's more experimental. This is Igor and I going back to the roots of metal, punk, death metal and the shit we grew up with. I just threw down 11 classic metal songs and recorded them [laughs]. We had some good people working with us, too: Marc Rizzo, my guitarist in SOULFLY, is in the band. Joe from GOJIRA, a French band I like a lot, is playing bass. People are talking about the album a lot, and I'm very happy to be doing this.

ARTISTdirect: Was writing riffs different? This album feels thrashier.

Max: Not too much on my part, because my riffs are very basic, man. I cannot riff any other way. I play four strings, and I don't play lead. Even when I try to do something different, it always has that Max sound to it. It's good and bad, I guess. I think what's different, is Igor and I are together again. The songs have Max and Igor's secret playing style, which nobody can figure out — even us! When we play together, there's something cool that happens. It's very special. The brutal parts are super fast, but there are a lot of cool grooves too. Being from Brazil, we both are very into grooves and percussion. That's all I can think of as to why this project is different from SOULFLY, or even SEPULTURA. We're doing this right now, and we've been interested in all kinds of different music. I always let music influence my shit all the time. I'm not afraid to capture new music, so I think that's what's different. It's very thrashy, like you said. People are also saying, "It's the heaviest shit, I've ever done." So I'm good with that.

ARTISTdirect: It's very passionate, too. You guys just went into the studio and captured what was going on in the moment.

Max: It is, man. It's hard to understand, but my emotions are going really deep on this record, because I'm back with a brother I grew up with. Because of the music we loved so much, we didn't speak for 10 years. We were separated for this long period of time. The album's brutal and all, but inside of this brutality, there's emotion. It was a fucked up time for Igor and me, but we made it through together. We are brothers. It all shows on the record. So, I'm glad for that. It's definitely special. I'm always going to like this record a lot, because it's the first thing I've done with my brother in so long. More...
