Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser says the band are enjoying the greatest momentum of their career as they continue their 30th anniversary world tour.
The Brazilian outfit followed a recent performance at Bloodstock with shows in London and Dublin. A live DVD has been released and a documentary is in the works – all of which, Kisser says, points to the best period in the group’s history.
Kisser tells Shredload: “It feels great, actually. I think we are in our best momentum in history – not only on stage but on the business side, organizing our own stuff, taking care of our business. It took a while for us; since Max Cavalera left the band we passed through different managers and different labels, and now we have a great label, a great set of people working for Sepultura.”
The guitarist says the anniversary has seen a return of some old fans after years on the sidelines.
He says: “The shows are great. It’s amazing to see old fans coming back to see the show, ‘Oh, I haven’t seen Sepultura since the 90s,’ and really enjoying what they see and hear.
“It’s a great way to celebrate 30 years – very active, two years on the road, the biggest festivals in the world, a DVD out – Rock In Rio – working on a documentary, so it’s very positive times. It’s great.”
Sepultura will continue the 30th anniversary run with a four-date winter UK tour in November.
The band’s latest album is 2013’s The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart.
