SEPULTURA Writing New Material On The Road

Guitarist Andreas Kisser of Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA was recently interviewed by Miss Bomb of Phoenix Radio's "The Bombshell Rock Show". The chat will air on Thursday, August 5 and Thursday, August 12 at 9 p.m. U.K. time at

Currently promoting the 2009 album "A-Lex", which is based around the 1962 novel "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, SEPULTURA has commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up effort for release in 2011 via the band's new label, Nuclear Blast Records.

"It's always a challenge to write something, you know, and we are in this moment now because we are preparing a new album," Kisser stated during the interview.

Miss Bomb: "Yes, that's right. For next year?"

Andreas: "That's right, and it is the first time we are writing material on the road, you know?!"

Miss Bomb: "Oh, is it, really?"

Andreas: "Well, we are managing to have the technology like [a] laptop, and it's like a small portable studio that we can do like basic ideas, you know, and once we go back to Brazil at the end of August, we can start actually playing around with all those ideas and be prepared to go into the studio at the end of the year."

Regarding SEPULTURA's new record deal with the Nuclear Blast label after spending many years with Roadrunner, and more recently, Steamhammer/SPV, Andreas said, "We are really excited. It's a label that's been around for so long and very metal. [Laughs]"

Miss Bomb: "Yes, I was going to say, is that any kind of reflection on what the new album is going to sound like, because you have been on Roadrunner and things in the past and it's not quite as heavy as the bands that are coming from Nuclear Blast?"

Andreas: "Hmmm, not really, I think it's something that it doesn't have to do with the type of label we're on. It's more about the concept we have in our minds and the musical ideas that we want to try and experiment, but, of course, we are a metal band, and having that kind of support and that vibe of course talking to people from inside the label and having that little bit of a feeling, that very true metal feeling, of course, will influence us in some respect. But, basically, it's the concept we choose to work on."
