The first impression with every record, before you even get a chance to hear the opening notes, is the artwork. And regardless of your individual opinion on Machine Messiah for it’s track, there is no denying the artwork is simply stunning. Originally a painting by Filipino artist Camille Dela Rosa titled “Deus Ex-Machina,” the artwork fits in brilliantly with the interesting concept Andreas Kisser wanted to explore with Machine Messiah. ‘Machine Messiah’ has kept the spirit of Sepultura alive and Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had an opportunity for a quick chat with SEPULTURA mastermind Andreas Kisser.
He discusses the upcoming new record “Machine Messiah”, completing 3 decades of Sepultura, how it inspired them to write another chapter of their career in 4th decade, writing songs with different styles and why they are pushing the musical boundaries even further with “Machine Messiah”.
He also talks about how everyone is the band was actively involved and prepared for this album, working with Swedish producer Jens Bogren for the first time, how Ross Robinson pushed the vocals on the previous record and how it shaped up the vocals on this album.
He also throws light on why they preferred to have Orchestrations on this record, his opinion on playing classic SEPULTURA albums in its entirety, why it’s a waste of time and doesn’t make any sense to tour and play entire album, which album would he like to play in its entirety in the future and more.
