SEPULTURA Guitarist On New Album: 'I Believe This Will Be Our Best Work In Many, Many Years'

Brazilian thrashers SEPULTURA entered the studio earlier in the month to begin recording their new album, which is based on the Anthony Burgess novel "A Clockwork Orange" (later turned into the classic film by Stanley Kubrick). An October release via SPV is expected.

SEPULTURA's forthcoming CD will be the group's first to feature drummer 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.

Commented SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser: "We are working now for two weeks, recording our new album. I'm almost finished laying down the rhythm guitar tracks, using mostly my Fender Stratocaster Nation and my Jackson RR. The sounds are dirtier and heavier, both for the guitars and drums.

"I believe this will be our best work in many, many years.

"The book is very inspiring and the songs are flowing naturally.

"Soon we will record the orchestra on the version me, the director Alexey Kurkdjian and Jean did for the Ninth Symphony from Beethoven, I think our greatest challenge so far."

A two-minute video teaser for the forthcoming SEPULTURA album can be viewed below.

SEPULTURA was one of the headliners of the XIII Festival Arte-Nativo Via Rock 2008 festival on May 1 at the Auditorio Municipal, Villarrobledo (Albacete), Spain.

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 So Paulo, Brazil.

Kisser previously stated about his upcoming solo album, "I'm very pleased with the result so far 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."
