Neuraxis Unveil Album Art, Comment On Sepultura Tour
December 9, 2010



Quebecois technical death metallers NEURAXIS have unveiled the cover of their upcoming album, "Asylon," which will be released in North America on February 15th, 2011. The cover art was created by artist Dennis Sibeijn of Damnengine Artwork, who worked with the band on their previous album, "The Thin Line Between," as well with Job For A Cowboy, Chimaira and more. "Asylon" was recorded at Wildsound Studio with producer Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Last Felony, The Agonist). Prosthetic has launched the pre-order for the album, at its official webstore. (http://store.prostheticrecords.com/index.php/sales-preorders/preorders)

Vocalist Alex Leblanc commented on the cover: "So here is the cover for "Asylon". As many of you will see, it is very different from all our previous album covers. Since the lyrics and the music are so connected on the new record, we wanted the cover to represent perfectly the vibe...dark, visceral and heavy. We used a lot of dark green to represent the sick/poisonous mood of the lyrics."

NEURAXIS has just been confirmed as support for legendary extreme metal act, Sepultura on their spring headline run. This is in addition to the previously announced tour supporting death metal masters Deicide in February and March.

Leblanc commented on touring with the Brazilian trailblazers: "On another note, we just confirmed our participation to the Sepultura tour starting next april. It's a massive tour covering the whole north american circuit. Is it really necessary to tell you how stoked we are to be a part of this??? I remember moshing in high school corridors listening to "Arise" back in the days. This tour will start one month after the Deicide tour so it will be a good and busy winter/spring for us...See you guys on the road!"

Sepultura's Andreas Kisser Releases First Solo Album
August 4, 2009
Beloved guitar shredder Andreas Kisser of the legendary Brazilian metal band Sepultura releases his first solo project 'Hubris I & II' on Mascot Records. This double album project will only be available as an import online or on iTunes as a download.

Since the release of 'Roots' (1996) and the consecration of Sepultura, the world was introduced to a new form of metal guitar playing. Mixing blinding riffs, strong pounding rhythms, and clear & expressive tones, Andreas Kisser had created something very new. We named this style, ‘root guitar’, and it found its way around the world, having a transforming influence on much of the 90’s metal scene. It’s style & technique can be seen in what is now called ‘New Metal’ (or Nu Metal).

Just to clarify, Andreas Kisser is happy in Sepultura, with the same intensity and passion as always and has no intentions of leaving the band. However, he felt it was time to expand his horizons & the different challenges that lay in front of him. His first solo album release is called, 'Hubris I & II'. Going beyond the usual ‘noise’, the album demonstrates influence of metal, musical education & disciplines, MPB (Brazilian popular music) and even “repente” (a form of improvisation, a style of music born in the streets of the Brazilian Northeast region). & all the while doing this without losing what is truly important: its musical identity.

There are 21 tracks divided into two volumes: a heavy side & the other less intense. The majority of the well-guarded ideas come from demons. “After Max Cavalera left Sepultura, I started to compose melodies while never reaching a completed song.” explains the Brazilian guitarist. 'Hubris I & II' is a finalization of what I have written since 1997.” Despite this obvious contrast, the album as a whole has consistency & unity.

Hubris I
Here we have an interesting collaboration of tuning between guitar, bas & drums. The sound carries the ‘root’ feeling so familiar in his sound, its intensity only comparable to a high voltage shock. In respect to the compositions, from the start there are varied surprises. From the introduction of the Brazilian ten string acoustic guitar called, “viola caipira” alongside the electric guitar and then quickly letting the listener know what is to come. And that is exactly what happens, as told by the guitarist: “This is a guitar record with an emphasis on tones. Although there are some solos, I preferred to work on the ambiances, almost as if I was doing a soundtrack for a movie.”

Hubris II
In general Hubris II keeps the nuances a little a little more daring. This will probably be the record that will surprise the public more accustomed to Sepultura. A fair part of the songs is instrumental, in which the big connection between them is the acoustic guitar as the protagonist. Yet Andreas advises: “This isn’t strictly an ‘unplugged’ record, with just acoustic elements. It has electric guitars, of course!” Who would think that Andreas could resist the temptation?

'Hubris I & II' brings to us the Andreas Kisser, exposed: the multiple sides as a musician, composer, arranger and producer. We can see all the various facets of this great guitarist, who has taught us where the root guitar comes from, as well as its origins and more importantly, what it spawned from Sepultura. Influences and identity collide in endless eclecticism, yet all of it comes from a strong point of view & common sense. This is Andreas Kisser’s first solo project in his career, yet his story has just begun…

Diecast Prepares To Hit The Road With Sevendust
December 20, 2006
Diecast will kick off 2007 with a monstrous 10-week U.S. tour alongside Sevendust and Bloodsimple, which kicks off Feb. 7. Look for tour dates to be announced early next year. They will also join Sevendust and Revelation Theory for a special 98 Rock-sponsored New Year's Eve show in Tampa, FL.

This week, the group wraps up a five-week run with Sepultura, Sworn Enemy and Suicide Silence. This was their first national tour in support of their new album, 'Internal Revolution', which is being hailed as their most dynamic and stunning offering yet from critics and fans alike.

Paul Stoddard (vocals) checks in with the following report: "It's been so much fun and such an honor to tour with a band that Ive loved since I was a kid. Sepultura are some of the nicest guys, and they really bring it to the stage. They also talk a great game about their Brazilian football (soccer), but there are a couple of athletes on the Diecast team that are ready to pull out a ball to see exactly what Sepultura is truly made of. Even if they wipe us up and down the field, it would still be a lot of fun. We also got a chance to hang out with our old friends in Sworn Enemy, and make new friends with our boys in Suicide Silence. The response and turnout from fans has been phenomenal. Every show, we find people singing along to songs from the new album, and we can't thank you guys enough for supporting us. If you haven't had a chance to see us yet, we'll be coming your way soon with Sevendust. Thanks again to everyone, and have a very metal and safe Xmas."

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1984
HOME TOWN: Brazil
MEMBERS:
Derrick Green (vocals)
Andreas Kisser (guitar)
Paulo Pinto (bass)
Igor Cavalera (drums)

Metal, hardcore, thrash, punk, tribal Sepultura have broken through every barrier, overcoming those all-too-restrictive stylistic boundaries to create their very own, unmistakable sound. Their two successive cult albums, Chaos A.D. (1993) and Roots (1996), helped the group from Brazil to conquer an undisputed position on the Mount Olympus of heavy metal, which they have defended successfully despite a number of personnel changes and a thorough restructuring process of their business affairs. The band surrounding founder member Igor Cavalera enlisted the American, Derrick Green, after the departure of their long-serving frontman Max Cavalera and are seeking new musical challenges with him. Albums like Against (1998) and Nation (2001) are impressive testimonials to a successfully completed reorientation phase, while the merciless dynamics of Sepulturas material remain an all-important element. Since the studio work on their new release Roorback was finalized in So Paulo at the end of January 2003, there can be no doubt: the history of the metal genre will continue to be moulded by Sepultura. The term power cocktail is a perfect description of Sepulturas mix of violent guitar riffs, booming drum rhythms and fire-breathing bass grooves that are once again combined on Roorback. Sepulturas music is as diverse and multi-layered as ever, as tracks like the haunting opener Come Back Alive, the subsequent Goddess and the angry Corrupted show. Bottomed Out and Mindwar close the album the way any self-respecting Sepultura recording should: powerful and unambiguous. The twelve tracks on the current offering were mixed by producer Steve Evetts at the Mosh Studios in So Paulo, Brazil. What started out in Belo Horizonte in Brazil back in 1984 soon developed into a metal hurricane of undreamt-of dimensions. The groups initial steps may seem a little awkward in retrospect, but even their brusque 1986 recording, Morbid Visions, hinted at the raw diamond hiding underneath the albums primitive sound, just waiting to be polished. Andreas Kisser, a classically trained guitarist of German ancestry, who took the place of his predecessor Jairo in 1988, played a key role in Sepulturas remarkable progress. Their second release Schizophrenia (1987) documented that the band were willing and able to grow and that the musicians knew how to make the most of their rapidly increasing stage experience in the confines of the studio. By the end of the Eighties, the press was duly impressed, applauding their musical brutality straight from the heart of the jungle. Sepulturas breakthrough arrived with their third release Beneath The Remains (1986), for which they enlisted the support of internationally renowned sound master Scott Burns at the Morrisound studios. The result spoke for itself: no South-American metal band before Sepultura had presented such a powerful, yet well-structured recording to the world at large. Having long outgrown their exotic bonus, their standard continued to rise. The arrival of Arise (1991) was the first indication that the ambitions of the band from South America was about to be equalled by their record sales: Arise sold over one million copies, naturally followed by numerous title stories and celebrated tours. Sepultura opened the Rock in Rio festival in January 1991, reaching over 500 million TV viewers in one go. One year later, the group embarked on an arena tour through the States as Ozzy Osbournes guests and released their masterpiece Chaos A.D. (1993). The politically inspired Chaos A.D. with its religious criticism and lyrics about a prisoner rebellion in So Paulo and the armed struggle of the Palestinian people was refined by godfather of sound, Andy Wallace, starting its metal roller-coaster ride with the heartbeat of Sep vocalist Max Cavaleras son Zyon, recorded in the womb. More than ever before, the band included hardcore elements in their material, adding Brazilian rhythms on the subsequent release Roots (1996). They had visited a tribe of Xavante Indians on the Bolivian border to learn more about their culture. This most experimental Sepultura release to date sparked a number of discussions among the public as well as within the band, which eventually led to the departure of Max Cavalera. While Max went on to form Soulfly, the three remaining Sepultura members Igor Cavalera, Paolo Pinto and Andreas Kisser asked an American, Derrick Green, to replace him. Supported by Green and his powerful voice, the band produced Against, also featuring former Metallica guitarist Jason Newsted, in various studios in San Diego, San Francisco, Brazil and on the Japanese Sado islands in 1996. The group that had become known for their social commitment organized a festival in So Paolo in August 1998 to support the Indians in the Northeast of the country. Fans were asked to either pay the regular ticket price or to bring along one kilogram of groceries which were donated to the native Brazilians. Their commitment to their country was also expressed by the title of their 2001 release, Nation. For the first time since Beneath The Remains, Sepultura recorded an album at home in Brazil. Their illustrious guests were, among others, Jello Biafra (ex-Dead Kennedys), Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and dub/reggae legend Dr. Israel, while Sepulturas Valtio underwent the special treatment of Finnish metal cellists Apocalyptica. The reasons for Sepulturas longstanding exceptional position in the metal genre are obvious and cant be ignored on Roorback: their wealth of ideas, inquisitiveness and love of experimentation. Anybody who claims to know which direction the new album is going to take even before its release is likely to fall victim to a fatal error. You have to listen to Roorback to understand the fascination that this band still exudes, and you have to relax and take in the twelve songs to discover the future of heavy metal.
