SEPULTURA's KISSER: 'It's Not The Right Time' For Reunion With MAX CAVALERA

Finland's HardcoreSounds recently conducted an interview with SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser. A few excerpts from the chat follow:

HardcoreSounds: [Members of the music] media have been asking the question [if] will SEPULTURA reunite with Max Cavalera for this year's Ozzfest? Is this just a rumor or have you discussed with the idea with Max?

Andreas: "It's a rumor, like many others. Since he left the band we have been hearing different rumors and stuff. It's not gonna happen at all. I mean, we have a new album and we are promoting it. I know Max has [taking in] interviews [that he is open] to [the possibility of a reunion]. But it's not the right time for us. But in the near future it would be great just to play with each other again. Who knows?! Next year or 2008, I don't know. I think it would be cool for us and for people who have expectations. Especially for people who haven't seen SEPULTURA with Max, it would be cool but it really is something we don't think about now. Maybe in the future."

HardcoreSounds: What´s the situation with Igor Cavalera? When will he rejoin the band?

Andreas: "I don't know. It will take some time for him to rebuild his personal life. He just separated from his wife and he has a new wife, a new kid, so his life is a little crazy at the moment. We don't wanna force him into any situations because he needs time to take care of himself. But at the same time we can't stop. We have the album and we have to promote it. We are very lucky to have Roy [Mayorga] with us which is a drummer that knows SEPULTURA really well. He played with Max before and we have known him for many years. So far he has been great!"

HardcoreSounds: What are your future plans after finishing the tour with IN FLAMES? Have you booked any summer festivals?

Andreas: "We are working on it now. We don't have any specific dates yet but the plan is to play some festivals. To see some games in the [soccer] World Cup in Germany. Try to do the same as we did in 1994 when we were touring with PANTERA and we saw some games of the World Cup. Brazilians were winning. That's the plan and hopefully in August/September we will be touring through U.S. And try to play in as many places as we can with this album."
