First, a little background: I grew up with Sepultura. Beneath the Remains was the first true thrash/death metal album I owned. Then came Arise, and the title came to make perfect sense, as a new metal tribe had risen. Chaos A.D. and the tour that followed changed my life and my expectations of all metal that would come after it. Roots then helped change metal forever. Soulfly will never be the classic Sepultura I grew up on, but it’s damn close. Of course, at the center of it all is Max Cavalera, one of metal’s most influential and well-known figures. An idol or role-model? Certainly not, but when all is said and done, he will stand alongside the metal greats.

After interviewing former Sepultura vocalist Max Cavalera in 2009 and now the man who has been successfully carrying on the band’s legacy—guitarist Andreas Kisser—perhaps my life is complete. OK, I hope not, but in all seriousness, Sepultura was a huge part of my youth and still is to this day. Their 1989 album, Beneath the Remains, was the first extreme metal album I ever heard, Arise (1991) was a permanent fixture in my tape deck, venting my frustrations during my teenage years, and I lost count of how many copies of Chaos A.D. (1993) I’ve had to buy from wearing it out.
And it’s not only the Max Cavalera Sepultura era I’ve been a fan of. I’ve closely followed the band since Derrick Green became vocalist in 1997, and was particularly a fan of 2006’s concept album Dante XXI.
So long story short:Getting to chat with Andreas Kisser for nearly 30 minutes was a huge deal for me. In one of our longer and more in-depth interviews on Live-Metal.net, Kisser talked with about the history of Sepultura, all the way from Bestial Devastation (1985) to their 2011 album, Kairos, which many are calling the band’s best since Chaos A.D. He defends the current formation of the band and gives his honest opinion on Max Cavalera’s post-Sepultura bands, Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy. (more…)
