SEPULTURA Guitarist Talks Upcoming Album, Recording With DAVE LOMBARDO, Covering DEATH
JacksonGuitars.com recently conducted an interview with guitaristAndreas Kisser of Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below. JacksonGuitars.com: What can you tell us about working with producerRoss Robinson? Kisser: We're working with Ross again after doing the album "Roots" with him in 1995, and since then, we hadn't had the chance to work with each other. We finally got the opportunity because we're signed with Nuclear Blast after Roadrunner went away. Many of those people that were withRoadrunner are now with Nuclear Blast. So, old friends that used to work with SEPULTURA are now working with the band again, and that's very exciting. Ross is one of the best producers around for this style of music. We know each other so well, and the stuff we are doing right now is really mind-blowing. I'm really happy with it so far. JacksonGuitars.com: We heard you've been working with SLAYERdrummer Dave Lombardo. How did that happen? Kisser: Dave was with his dog and two kids walking around the beach, and he's good friends with Ross. He was in the neighborhood, and Rosssaid, "Why don't you come by and play on the SEPULTURA album?" He said, "Why not?" It was amazing, man. Two drummers, no cymbals. With just the drums themselves, it sounded very heavy. He's one of our biggest idols, and it's such an honor to have him with us on this album. And the way it happened was so natural, like friends just coming together.
