SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser has issued the following update:
"Finally in Brazil after two months in Europe in a great tour that prepared us for the next step which is to start writing the new album. And the return couldn't be better.
"[On Friday, August 24], I completed 39 years of a beautiful life with family and friends at the Marina De La Riva concert in Sao Paulo. It was a great party arranged by my wife Patricia with a surprise that was very special and it touched me a lot.
"After Marina did her set where I also participated playing four songs, the stage was prepared for the main act of the night. Patricia prepared my oldest [kids], Giulia [age 12] and Yohan [age 9], together with Marina's son Paulo Tarso, to play a song for me. Giulia played keyboards and sang, Yohan played the guitar and Paulo played the drums. They called themselves P.Y.G. It was amazing! They played 'Paranoid' from BLACK SABBATH and it was perfect. I was very impressed with the way their managed their instruments, being their first time on stage. Tears rolled all over the place and the crowd of friends and family went nuts! A unique and very special gift, I will never forget. It was wonderful to see them play and to receive such an homage.
"I have to thank the music teacher and friend Marcio Sanches who taught them with a lot of patience and love, the great Marina who let them practice at her house with important guidance, and my beautiful wife Patricia who made this amazing party possible. I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!"
