SEPULTURA Guitarist Reflecting On Life

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser has issued the following update:

"After the gig in Belgium we went to Holland. The two shows were really good; they were the only gigs we did on those countries, all sold out! We left Holland to a long trip till Spain, more precisely in Huesca, Aragon. We arrived a day before the show, had the day off and I went for a walk. I found a little church, Santa Maria de Salas, away from the city. It's a church many pilgrims visit when they follow the Santigo's Way, which is very close. The little road was very calm and I walked and observed all the beautiful nature around, in peace with myself, meditating and reflecting on life. It was a awesome meditation away from the urban chaos. The next day we had the Sepularmy party with the soccer game. They had nice uniforms for both teams and a field with artificial grass, very nice! It was a great game where SEPULTURA won 6 to 5 against the Sepularmies. Later on the day we had the concert where everybody singed and screamed with us, great show.

"Thank you very much Javier, Pedro, Portuga, Gorka and family, KSK and all at the Sepularmy who made this day very special for us. RISE, RISE, SEPULNATION!"

Andreas was born in Brazil in 1968 and started playing acoustic guitar in 1981, learning the basic chords with popular Brazilian music. He later discovered KISS and QUEEN, and that changed his life. In his early years Andreas was hugely influenced by OZZY, BLACK SABBATH, IRON MAIDEN, TWISTED SISTER, WHITESNAKE, VENOM and METALLICA. He learnt a lot from all those guitarists, plus bands like PINK FLOYD and YES and guitarists such as Eric Clapton, John Williams, Romero Brothers, Leo Brower, Baden Powell, Villa Lobos, etc.

Andreas joined SEPULTURA in 1987 after meeting the band on a holiday. He recorded his first LP, "Schizophrenia", the same year. With that album SEPULTURA got a contract to release the next record worldwide.

Andreas is currently on the road with SEPULTURA, touring all over the world. He is also working on his first solo album, which he hopes to release in early 2008.
