Oh no he didn’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser has a thing or two to say about Max Cavalera’s evolution as a singer (or lack thereof). I guess being asked about him over and over again, even though he left the band in 1996, can get a brother irritated:

“Soulfly has had so many different formations, so you lose kind of a characteristic sound there. Of course, Max and his vocals is what it is. I mean, he’s been writing the same stuff over and over again. And in that sense I don’t think he has really evolved too much. When working with different musicians all the time it’s kind of hard to have a characteristic sound or try to do something original. And then with Cavalera Conspiracy, it’s weird to think that he can really work songs like that with just like a drummer there. So I don’t really see the partnership that they’re going. It’s just like a bunch of Max songs that have a different drummer. But, you know, it is what it is.

Oh snap! Ya done did it, son. You just done got Max Cavalera all mad now, ya feel me? Just wait till Max unleashes an all caps rage on yo ass in the press, son… Whaaat?

I have no idea why I’ve gone all street on you, nor do I know if that’s borderline racism (fingers crossed), but yeah, it’s a pretty direct thing to say. I guess playing a few Big Four gigs got Andreas some new-found balls, eh?

When asked about Andreas’ comments, Max Cavalera had no comment. He did utter some noise, but no one understood what he had to say.


Andreas Kisser kisses the Big Four

Scott Ian is a dad, so Sepultura‘s Andreas Kisser filled in for him on a bunch of shows. What does he think of the whole experience? Let’s just say he’s probably as excited as Ian’s son.

It was amazing. Anthrax… I mean, all the four bands here are the DNA of my guitar playing. I started listening to them, the heavier music, and I wanted to play the same. They were my teachers. And to be here, it’s just… I don’t think even a dream. I [couldn’t have] dreamt something like that to happen. And the good thing is it’s a very positive situation. Scott is not sick, [he doesn’t have a] a broken arm or something like that. It’s very, very positive. It couldn’t be better. So I’m very honored to be here, by these guys, and jam. We’re having fun.

I have to agree with him. He’s in an awesome situation. Scott is just taking time for his family so the vibe within the band is very positive, unlike the vibe of a band who just lost a member or stuff like that. Must be pretty awesome.

Ian out, Kisser in

Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser, you know the guy who can’t make up his mind, will be replacing Scott Ian for eight Anthrax shows in July.

Why? Because Scott Ian and his wife, Meat Loaf’s daughter Pearl Aday, are expecting their first baby. As a representative of Dose of Metal, I want to congratulate Ian’s sperm.


Sepultura reunion… possible?

There’s one I didn’t see coming. As you may know, Max Cavalera kept talking and talking and talking about a possible Sepultura reunion of the old line-up. Sepultura on the other hand made it clear that they don’t want to reunite with the Cavaleras.

That’s where we stood in December but it’s 2011, bitch, and the cards are being reshuffled. In a new interview with Andreas Kisser, Sepultura guitarist and the guy who told Max Cavalera to move on and stop talking bullshit just a couple of weeks ago, said this;

“[It’s] not impossible, but we cannot do something just for the sake of doing it. We would have to establish a new identity, [and rebuild the] friendship [between us].”
Max has been talking a lot about this reunion [in recent interviews], perhaps because his other bands, Cavalera Conspiracy and Soulfly, are not as good as Sepultura. But if a reunion was to take place, it would have to be something decent. And only time will tell [if something like that can happen].”

If you speak Portuguese, go here for the whole interview.

So much for staying true to your word. Is this a Shyamalan movie or where did this twist come from?
