In a recent discussion with Metal Hammer UK magazine, Sepultura‘s guitarist Andreas Kisser addressed the possibility of a reunion with former members Max and Igor Cavalera for the group’s farewell tour finale. Kisser expressed a cautious openness to the idea, emphasizing the importance of a positive atmosphere.

“I won’t deny that it would be great to have a very last show with their participation, but it has to be great. It has to have people who are there to celebrate and not try to discuss who was right or wrong in decisions from the past. In the end, we are celebrating now as the Sepultura of today. If they want to be a part of it, it would be amazing,” Kisser stated.

This statement comes in the wake of comments made by Max Cavalera in a recent interview. In a candid discussion with Sakis Fragos, publisher and chief editor of Rock Hard Greece, Max addressed whether he had been invited by the current band members to join Sepultura‘s final concert on their farewell tour. He clarified, “I have not been approached. In fact, I think I saw one thing Andreas Kisser, of course, said in an interview, like, ‘Why are we gonna ask them? They’re gonna spoil the party,’ which is very typical laughs of Andreas to say that”, he laughed.

Max continued, “I don’t know. I think I’m gonna let things happen the way they’re gonna happen. I’m not gonna force anything, and if there comes a time when we feel that we should make a reunion — okay, fine, as long as we do it the right way. Just like with these re-recordings [of early Sepultura albums that Igor and I are doing under the Cavalera name. I think we made them the right way — honest, proper, from the heart.”

Cavalera concluded the topic by saying: “So right now I’m not thinking about that. I know they announced the end of the band. I don’t understand this idea. I don’t know if they were forced to do it, or if it’s a mutual decision of just stop playing ’cause you don’t wanna do it anymore. I don’t know. I cannot live without music. I need to play live. It’s like the air I breathe. I love what I’m doing right now with Igor, with Cavalera, and we’re gonna continue.”

Sepultura‘s classic line-up, made of Max Cavalera and his brother, drummer Igor “Iggor” Cavalera, guitarist Andreas Kisser, and bassist Paulo Jr. originally disbanded in 1996 following Max‘s departure after a split between the band and his wife Gloria, who managed them. Igor remained with Sepultura for another decade – with Max‘s replacement and current frontman Derrick Greene – before leaving and reuniting with Max in Cavalera Conspiracy.
