GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE

PROGRESSIVE BY NATURE, SEPULTURA’S NEW ALBUM ADDRESSES TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS AS ONE OF ITS KEY THEMES. TERRORIZER SPEAKS TO GUITARIST ANDREAS KISSER ABOUT ONE OF 2017’S FIRST ESSENTIAL ALBUMS, ‘MACHINE MESSIAH’

SEPULTURA

Sepultura. You’re familiar with the name, aren’t you? Can’t imagine why, or how, you wouldn’t be. They’re the original ‘Third World Posse’ that came thrashing and screaming out of Brazil in the late ’80s. They’re the creators of a handful of bonafide thrash metal classics. They’re one of a very miniscule number of bands that has issued an acceptable nü-metal recording. They’re a band that’s never stopped growing, changing and progressing, having refused to quit despite taking a similar turn to Napalm Death (i.e. featuring no original members in its line-up) a decade ago. Sepultura are extreme music legends despite the opinions of nay-sayers, critics and internet warriors on its post-Cavalera years and subsequent output. They continue to forge forward in the face of good and bad and after all this time, bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. (having been in the band since 1985, the closest thing they have to an original member. Full disclosure: your intrepid hack was actually in a band with Sepultura’s original four-stringer Roberto Raffan during the late ’80s), guitarist Andreas Kisser (who’s been in the ranks for 29 of Sepultura’s 32 year existence), “new” vocalist Derek Green (who, incredibly enough, has been the band’s frontman since 1997, six years longer than guitarist/vocalist Max Cavalera, who formed the band with his brother Igor) and actual newcomer, drummer Eloy Casagrande still feel the bristle of excitement that comes from being a part of the institution known as Sepultura.

About Terrorizer Magazine

The first time I saw Kreator was at a venue in Birmingham called Goldwyns. It was around the time they had just released ‘Coma Of Souls’. Death were also on the bill mysteriously without Chuck, but that was another story. It was 1990 and even back then, Kreator were one of the best thrash bands out there, having already honed their craft on some of the most extreme (and now classic) releases such as ‘Extreme Aggression’. Writing this editorial at the arse end of 2016, Kreator will welcome in 2017 with another stonkingly awesome thrash metal record that once again shows you can’t keep an old dog down. Mille and crew sound as vital now as they ever did in their youth and it’s a pleasure and an honour to have them grace our cover. I hope you enjoy reading about their new album and what keeps the German tank pummelling forward. Elsewhere this issue feels like a great mix of the old and new guard of extreme music gracing these hallowed pages – and what brings them all together is the quality of the music everyone is creating. Some seriously good records are coming out right now and a New Year is only just beginning! Looking ahead, it’s safe to say 2017 will continue to be a strong year for music and we look forward to traversing through the best of it with you. Until next time! Adios Darren Sadler
