Sepultura bassist talks about the band’s retirement

Sepultura is the biggest metal band from Brazil and probably from South America. The band was founded in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil in 1984.


And has been in the road since, with some formation changes after brothers Max Cavalera and Iggor Cavelera left the band in the 90s.

The band’s currently formation consists in Derrick Green (Vocals), Paulo Xisto Jr (Bass), Andreas Kisser (Guitar) and Eloy Casagrande (Drums).

In an interview with Metal Imperium, he said about Sepultura retirement:

“Not yet. I know this time will come, but there is still this motivation, this desire to be on the road.

“I know that we have been in the band for 36 years; it’s a long career. I know that time will come, but I hope it will take a few years yet. We still have health and energy to be on stage, which is what we love to do the most.

‘For me, it’s the best and most important part. Of course, a record marks a story, a period of our life, but the good thing, in my opinion, is to be on the road, to be traveling these countries, to present each album, to meet new people, different cultures. This is still very strong and present in our career.”

“I hope we will be on the road for a few more years. I don’t know how many, but you never know what might happen tomorrow. As long as we are healthy and strong, I believe we will continue on the road.”

The band released recently they new album “Quadra”:

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
