Sepultura Plan US Tour

Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura have announced their long-awaited return to American shores in November. The band kicks off their 28-city tour at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ on Thursday, November 11.

Their latest album, "Dante XXI", has been heralded by the press and the heavy metal community worldwide as a true return to form, along with being one of the very finest metal releases of the year. The album, based on "Divina Comedia", one of the master works of Italian poet and philosopher, Dante Alighieri, has turned heads both for it's razor-sharp sonic aesthetics and it's forward-thinking, literate approach to heavy metal.

As previously reported, Igor Cavalera left the band this past summer and the band debuted their new drummer Jean Dolabella (ex-UDORA) at the Vilar de Mouros festival in Portugal.

Here are the scheduled US Tour dates: More...

Sepultura to Cease Using Name After Current Tour?

In a brand new interview with the Brazilian newspaper O Estado de São Paulo, former SEPULTURA drummer Igor "Iggor" Cavalera is quoted as saying that he and the current SEPULTURA members have come to an agreement that the name SEPULTURA can only be used until the end of band's current "Dante XXI" touring cycle. However, in the same article, the group's bassist, Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr., denies that any such agreement was ever made.

Speaking to BLABBERMOUTH.NET back on June 13, 2006, Igor was asked if, in his opinion, SEPULTURA should go on without either of the Cavalera brothers in the lineup. "I don't have the right to say whether it should exist, or if it should go on, since I left the band," he said. "I think if it was like, if they threw me out of the band, or if it was like a fight, or if it was a different situation, I could have a different opinion, as far as continuing or not continuing. But as far as the way I see it [now], I think it's really up to them if they want to continue or if they wanna stop with SEPULTURA." Asked if he would try to stop the remaining SEPULTURA members if they tried to continue and record a new album under the SEPULTURA name with a different drummer, Igor said, "No, not at all."

SEPULTURA played their first official show in their home country with the group's new drummer, Jean Dolabella (ex-UDORA), on August 5 at the Circo Voador in Rio de Janeiro.

Igor announced earlier in the year that he was taking a break from the group's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son (who was born in January). Filling in on drums during the band's European tour with IN FLAMES was Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max in SOULFLY for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003.

Igor is the second Cavalera to leave SEPULTURA. In 1996, Max Cavalera exited the group after the rest of the band fired Max's wife Gloria as SEPULTURA's manager.

Max And Igor Cavelera On Stage Together Again

SOULFLY's official web site was updated with the following message:

"The 10th annual D-Low Memorial show is over and we thank you all for making it a huge success. The show, which was opened by NORTH SIDE KINGS and INCITE, sold out and it was a very historic night for SOULFLY. The band was joined on stage by many friends from their past including Danny Marianinho of NORTH SIDE KINGS (on 'Defeat U'), Richie Cavalera of INCITE (on 'Bleed' and 'Stay Strong'), [former MEGADETH bassist] Dave Ellefson (on 'Prophecy' and 'Defeat U'), and their former longtime drummer Roy Mayorga (on 'No Hope = No Fear') who currently plays with STONE SOUR. But most importantly, Max was reunited onstage for the first time in 10 years with his brother Igor Cavalera. Max and Igor formed SEPULTURA together in the early 1980s, but have not played together since the band split in 1996. Igor joined the band mid-way through the set for a jam on the drums and stayed onstage to play the SEPULTURA classics 'Roots Bloody Roots' and 'Attitude' with the guys!"

SOULFLY bassist Bobby Burns previously told BLABBERMOUTH.NET: "The show was fuckin' insane! Roy Mayorga came out and did 'No Hope = No Fear' with us. Dave Ellefson did 'Prophecy' and 'Defeat U'. And the one and only Igor Cavalera came out and did 'Attitude' and 'Roots' with us!!! It was far beyond badass, trust me... Best D-Low show yet..."

Also, SOULFLY have been confirmed as the direct support for MEGADETH on the upcoming Australian leg of the Gigantour. ARCH ENEMY and CALIBAN will also be playing before SOULFLY, and tickets go on sale on Tuesday (August 22) at 9:00 a.m." The dates for the shows are:

Oct. 21 - Brisbane, Australia - The Riverstage
Oct. 22 - Sydney, Australia - Hordern Pavilion

Cavalera Excited About Possible Sepultura Reunoin

SOULFLY frontman Max Cavalera recently spoke to Holland's Toazted.com about the possibility of a reunion with his former SEPULTURA bandmates at some point in the not-too-distant future. Asked about the rumor that a reunited SEPULTURA was in talks several months ago to play this year's Ozzfest, Max said, "There's been a lot of rumors. SEPULTURA is one of the most rumored things out there. [Laughs] I talked to my brother [ex-SEPULTURA drummer Igor Cavalera] recently. He has a new son named Antonio, which is my middle name. He says he looks a lot like me. I've only seen a picture. I plan to visit him sometime next year. We're in a very good relationship, which is great, after all this bullshit. Ten years… Life is too short to hold [grudges]. So I think in a weird way, God has a way to manage these things and he's putting it all together now. With or without the reunion — I don't really care — it's important that we're brothers… blood, family… it's a great thing. But to tell you the truth, it would be cool to have a reunion. Even my kids wanna see it. My [stepson] Richie is like, 'Oh, my God, I've gotta… I know I saw SEPULTURA, but I was too little, I don't remember.' And SEPULTURA has touched so many people. So it would be really, really cool."

With regards to how a SEPULTURA reunion might affect SOULFLY, Max said, "I think SOULFY [and SEPULTURA] are completely different things. SOULFLY has its own identity and its own vibe. And it will not conflict with SEPULTURA, I don't think — it's two completely different things. And touring with BLACK SABBATH last year — I was really inspired. It was so good to see… Those guys, they hated each other for a long period, and you see that they make up and they go on tour, and they… I don't know. You can really see that Ozzy loves BLACK SABBATH. It's in his blood. He loves [the band]. How can you not? It was inspiring for me. So I think I understand more now why people want to see [a] SEPULTURA [reunion]. It makes more sense now than it did… When we first split up, I was like, 'No, I'm never doing that shit again. Screw this, I hate this shit,' but I think different now. It's working itself [out]. When it happens, it'll happen, and it'll be good."

Sepultura Vow To Continue Despite Igor's Departure

Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA have yet to comment on yesterday's announcement that their drummer and co-founder, Igor Cavalera, has left the group due to "artistic differences." However, according to a posting on the band's official web site, guitarist Andreas Kisser, Derrick Green and Paulo Xisto Jr. have vowed to continue with the group despite this major setback. In the meantime, SEPULTURA's latest CD, "Dante XXI", will receive its long-awaited South American release (featuring two bonus tracks) next month. Tour dates in Brazil and North American are expected to be announced soon.

Igor announced earlier in the year that he was taking a break from the group's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son (who was born in January). Filling in on drums during the band's European tour with IN FLAMES was Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max in SOULFLY for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003.

Igor is the second Cavalera to leave SEPULTURA. In 1996, Max Cavalera exited the group after the rest of the band fired Max's wife Gloria as SEPULTURA's manager.

Drummer Igor Cavalera Quits Sepultura

Drummer Igor Cavalera has officially announced his departure from SEPULTURA.

In a statement released on June 12 to the Brazilian media, Igor attributed the split to "artistic incompatibility" with his SEPULTURA bandmates — guitarist Andreas Kisser, bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. and vocalist Derrick Green.

"I believe my mission in SEPULTURA has come to an end," Igor said in the statement. "I am very proud of everything we have done, but I feel that the group's current formation no longer lives up to my expectations as a musician and a person. Since my last tour with SEPULTURA, which took place in Europe in December 2004, I have sensed that my ideas were not compatible with those of the rest of the band."

Igor, who hasn't toured with SEPULTURA since 2005, noticed that his personal ambitions were worlds apart from those of the other members of the group and he felt slightly detached from the creative process of SEPULTURA. More...

Max Cavalera Slams "Fake" Sepultura

Ex-SEPULTURA/current SOULFLY frontman Max Cavalera has slammed the current touring version of his former band as "fake" and has reiterated his desire to one day take part in a reunion of the group's classic lineup. When asked during a Sirius Satellite Radio interview last month if there have been talks between him and the guys in SEPULTURA about getting back together one day, Max said, "There's been a lot of talk — rumor and stuff. I don't know… What I know is that Igor [Cavalera, Max's brother and current SEPULTURA drummer] is not on tour [with SEPULTURA] right now [Editor's Note: Igor announced earlier in the year that he was taking a break from SEPULTURA's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son], and to me that's not SEPULTURA, man. I don't give a shit — that is not. We made the band, we created the band; it started with me and him. Andreas [Kisser, SEPULTURA guitarist] came way, way later in the picture. Paulo [Xisto Pinto Junior, SEPULTURA bassist], he got in the band 'cause he had a bass — his Dad bought a bass, [but Paulo] couldn't play. And I'm not trying to diss anybody, I'm just saying the facts — that me and Igor invented, created and carried… the Cavalera brothers carried SEPULTURA; we created it. So if it [the reunion] ever happens, it's gonna be [done] the right way for the right reason.

"I kind of compare it to parachuting — I never parachuted before, I wanna parachute one day. It's like the SEPULTURA reunion. It's like parachuting. I'm not doing it tomorrow, but I'd like to do it eventually, sometime. 'Cause I know what it did to people; it changed a lot of people's lives. My kids wanna see it. Richie's [Max's stepson] like, 'I wanna see SEPULTURA.' Zyon and Igor [Max's youngest son] are like, 'I wanna see SEPULTURA with Max — the real SEPULTURA, not the fake SEPULTURA.

"When the time comes and it happens, it will be for the right reason — I believe in all that kind of crazy shit. So it's gonna be done at the right time. I am right now where I am supposed to be, doing what I am supposed to be, and when that happens, it will be the right time."

A rare NAILBOMB music video for the track "Wasting Away" has been posted online on Roadrunner's site.

This video includes extremely rare footage that was nearly burnt in a fire that nearly killed Max Cavalera's family friend.

Max Cavalera's current main band, SOULFLY, are continuing to tour in support of their latest album, "Dark Ages", available now on Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Prophecy" was produced by Max and was mixed by Terry Date, who has previously worked with PANTERA and DEFTONES, among others.

Andreas: "Not The Right Time" For Ruinion w/ Max

Sepultura's Kisser: "It's Not The Right Time" For Reunion With Max Cavalera
Finland's HardcoreSounds recently conducted an interview with SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

HardcoreSounds: [Members of the music] media have been asking the question [if] will SEPULTURA reunite with Max Cavalera for this year's Ozzfest? Is this just a rumor or have you discussed with the idea with Max?

Andreas: "It's a rumor, like many others. Since he left the band we have been hearing different rumors and stuff. It's not gonna happen at all. I mean, we have a new album and we are promoting it. I know Max has [taking in] interviews [that he is open] to [the possibility of a reunion]. But it's not the right time for us. But in the near future it would be great just to play with each other again. Who knows?! Next year or 2008, I don't know. I think it would be cool for us and for people who have expectations. Especially for people who haven't seen SEPULTURA with Max, it would be cool but it really is something we don't think about now. Maybe in the future."

HardcoreSounds: What´s the situation with Igor Cavalera? When will he rejoin the band?

Andreas: "I don't know. It will take some time for him to rebuild his personal life. He just separated from his wife and he has a new wife, a new kid, so his life is a little crazy at the moment. We don't wanna force him into any situations because he needs time to take care of himself. But at the same time we can't stop. We have the album and we have to promote it. We are very lucky to have Roy [Mayorga] with us which is a drummer that knows SEPULTURA really well. He played with Max before and we have known him for many years. So far he has been great!"

HardcoreSounds: What are your future plans after finishing the tour with IN FLAMES? Have you booked any summer festivals?

Andreas: "We are working on it now. We don't have any specific dates yet but the plan is to play some festivals. To see some games in the [soccer] World Cup in Germany. Try to do the same as we did in 1994 when we were touring with PANTERA and we saw some games of the World Cup. Brazilians were winning. That's the plan and hopefully in August/September we will be touring through U.S. And try to play in as many places as we can with this album."
