Andreas Kisser on Sepultura Reunion: Sooner? Later? Never? Who knows?!
The clock is ticking on a Sepultura reunion, and the closest thing metal fans got to such a situation was former vocalist/guitarist Max Cavalera and former drummer Iggor Cavalera re-teaming for last year’s Cavalera Conspiracy album. Right now, Sepultura is Cavalera-less, which makes it feel less and less like Sepultura. Longtime guitarist Andreas Kisser realizes that fans are still clamoring for the Brothers Cavalera to make their return, since it’s been 13 years since Max said ‘Adios!’ to the legendary and ground-breaking Brazilian metal band!
“Two years ago, people were pressuring us for a reunion, since it was the age of reunions — from the Police to Anthrax,” Kisser told Noisecreep. “So I think people felt we might be ready to do something like that also. That is not the case. We are focused on what we are doing. We have a new drummer, and we recorded the album with him for first time. And we are in a great moment and the intention is build for the future and not be slaves to the past.”
Even though Kisser was steadfast on the band’s current state of Cavalera-less-ness, he also said, “You never know. This stuff can happen sooner or later. Who knows? Maybe never? Let’s see. We’re focusing on what we do right now.” In the immediate future, the mighty remaining Seps will tour America in March 2010 with Kreator.
The band’s latest album, ‘A-Lex,’ which was influenced and inspired by ‘A Clockwork Orange’ — the book, not the movie — is out now, while Kisser tours with his cover band Halo and promotes his solo album, ‘Hubris I & II.’
