SEPULTURA Guitarist Andreas Kisser Checks In With Another Studio Update; “Trauma of War” Song Title Revealed

Sunday, 7th July 2013

SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser has checked in with another studio update, this time, revealing a new song title, “Trauma of War.”

“So, here’s another song title for you all: ‘Trauma of War’. This will be the first song on the album and is one of the fastest and most brutal songs we ever did, the performance of our drummer Eloy is fantastic, it gave such an energy to the song that the guitars, bass and vocals had to top that level of brutality, for sure our strongest opener so far.

I wrote the lyrics inspired by friends that went to war and came back with some kind of trauma, some kind of disturbance that they have to live with for the rest of their life. When I lived in the USA I met some veterans from different wars like the Vietnam and Korean wars, they all had problems to adapt back into social life. Recently a friend that we have from Brazil came back from Iraq serving the American army, he spent time at the front and now have to live with medication and lots of ghosts in his head. At first he seems fine but when he starts talking about the experiences at the front, the nightmares and the weird behavior at restaurants and shopping malls you fell how brutal the brainwash is. It’s crazy to see families destroyed because of soldiers that cannot leave the war behind, the illusion of victory and power at the field disappears when you face the hell of the real world. This song is for them, victims of lies and destruction.”

SEPULTURA’s upcoming album will mark the first time the band will have recorded an album outside Brazil since Against. The reunion between SEPULTURA and Ross Robinson was first suggested by Monte Conner, the former Roadrunner Records A&R chief who is now the head of Nuclear Blast Entertainment, a U.S. partnership with Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger.

Robinson produced SEPULTURA’s  Roots album in 1995. Released in February 1996 through Roadrunner Records, it was the band’s last studio album to feature founding member and vocalist Max Cavalera. SEPULTURA has spent most of the past two years on tour in support of its 12th studio album, and Nuclear Blast Records debut, Kairos, which hit stores in July 2011.
