Andreas Kisser recently completed work on his solo debut, entitled "Hubris I & II". A two-disc set, it is tentatively scheduled for release later in the year via Holland's Mascot Records. The CD was recorded in part at A Voz do Brasil studio in São Paulo, Brazil.
Kisser previously stated about his upcoming solo album, "I'm very pleased with the result and I'm excited to hear it all done. It was a long process, a learning process and a great experience. It's a musical journey trough the influences I had for last 15 years of my life and at the same time it's very different from everything I did so far."
SEPULTURA performed in front of an estimated 60,000 people in Havana, Cuba on Saturday, July 19. A CNN report on this historic appearance can be viewed at this location.
SEPULTURA entered the studio last month to begin recording its new album, which is based on the Anthony Burgess novel "A Clockwork Orange" (later turned into the classic film by Stanley Kubrick).
Tentatively due in October via SPV Records, SEPULTURA's forthcoming CD will be the group's first to feature Jean Dolabella, who replaced founding member Igor Cavalera in 2006. Igor has since reunited with his brother and former SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY.
