SEPULTURA, SOULFLY Share Stage At Germany's DEVILSIDE FESTIVAL; Photos Available

SEPULTURA and SOULFLY (featuring former SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera) shared the stage for the first time ever at the Devilside Festival on Sunday, June 28, 2009 at Landschaftspark in Duisburg-Nord, Germany. Also appearing on the bill were MOTÖRHEAD, MISFITS, SODOM and CRO-MAGS, among others.

(Note: SEPULTURA an SOULFLY have played some of the same European festivals before, but never on the same day.)

In a recent interview with Blistering.com, SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser was asked if there any resentment toward the band's new lineup in Brazil since in North America, it seems the old lineup is that all people want to concern themselves when it comes to SEPULTURA. "Everywhere we feel very positive vibrations," Kisser replied. "Max has played a lot more in America than us, so his point of view was spread much more in the press. I guess that's normal, it's propaganda. Max is crazy — he says crazy stuff in interviews, contradicts himself a lot and you can never count on what he says, so I guess people are confused. People can say or think whatever they want, but I wish we could have done without that. We are going to have the chance to go back to America. This album is really strong and the reaction has been strong as well. I've been doing a lot of interviews with people in the United States and it's been very positive. People have to listen to the music with an open mind and ears and not with all the gossip and politics and bullshit. SEPULTURA is something that is alive. It's not something that stopped in '95 or '96. We create this band everyday."

When asked if he braces himself with every interview he does for the question regarding a SEPULTURA reunion, Kisser replied, "Definitely [laughs]. Since Max left, it's been going on and when Igor [drums; Max's brother] left… even more so. Some people make up the pressure for us to do it, but there's nothing to it — we're not interested in it all. We're very focused on what we're doing now and that's because we want to lead and do whatever we want. I don't understand all of this bullshit. We're very alive and looking toward the future — we're not plastic people. "
