The ink has just about dried on Sepultura’s new deal with Nuclear Blast. Yes kids, you read that right. Nuclear Blast. Here’s what the label had to say in a statement about the move.
“Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the signing of legends Sepultura [Edit: Are they still “legends” if Max Cavalera isn’t in the band anymore? Does Andreas Kisser’s presence in the fold earn Sep that tag, “legend?” That’s more a question than a statement]!” Then, Kisser checked in with his own canned statement, which, as you read it, do so with a futuristic robot voice…in your head, that is: “We are happy to be at Nuclear Blast, especially in the year we are celebrating 25 years of history, and it is a great honor for us to join forces with the most metal label in the world [Edit: End All Life? Satanic Skinhead Productions?]. I am sure this will be a great journey for both of us and we are already working on new material while on the road. Let’s go for another 25 years!”
Imagine that! Kisser, a 66-year-old salt-and-peppered longhair, still up there on that stage, noodling away with some retooled version of Sepultura. That would just rule, wouldn’t it? It’s times like this I wish I had a fucking time machine!
So there you have it. New Cavalera-less Sepultura coming in 2011. Again, time machine. Fuck!!!
