Sepultura's Andreas Kisser Doesn't Rule Out Reunion With Max Cavalera

In a recent interview with MTV News, SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser said he's heard all the rumors about SEPULTURA reuniting with founding member and current SOULFLY frontman Max Cavalera for a spot on this summer's Ozzfest. He's even heard the one that involves the band's "plans" to perform three different sets from the main stage — one featuring SOULFLY material, a second of just "Roots" and "Chaos A.D." tracks, and the last consisting of songs off the band's upcoming CD, "Dante XXI". But at this point he said they're nothing more than rumors, period.

"Nothing is really set," he told MTV News. "We need to go on tour with this new album, but nothing's set. There's a lot of talking going on, but nothing's being done as far as I know. A lot of people are working for these things to happen, but so far nothing's going on. People are excited to hear that there's a possibility for us to get back [together], and it would be cool to play with Max again, to jam together. It would be great and it's cool to see that everyone thinks it's a good idea. The way I see it is, if you do this shit, we're only going to do stuff that we recorded up to 'Roots' and hopefully maximize — do a DVD or something. I haven't talked to Max [about a reunion]. So far it's just really rumors — which is a start."

With regards to his upcoming solo album, Kisser said, "I've been working on it for the past three years," he said. "It will be a double album — the first [disc] will be related to the electric guitar, with different musicians, and the second will be acoustic. I'm taking my time with it, and it should be out by the end of this year, [although] nothing's set. It won't be a masturbation guitar album; it will explore different tones, different guitars and different instrumentation."

Sounds right, no Necromancer, no Escape To The Void, no Desperate Cry, no..... Kissers solo album could be alright though.

i always preferred Sepultura when they had Max. it was better than Soulfly is, but Soulfly is better than post-max Sepultura. I'd be extremely happy to see them team up again, if just for tat show.

Chaos A.D. was probably one of their best albums. solid hardcore tribal rockin' straight through.

problem with Sepultura is their early stuff was all really badly produced, just because they didnt have any funds, and the music industry wasnt quite what it is today (considering theyr brazillian, too...). Hopefully Dante XXI can live up to Sepultura's better efforts.
