SEPULTURA Members Attend SOULFLY Show In New York City

A BLABBERMOUTH.NET visitor by the name of "Cheezesteak" has submitted the following report:

"I went to go see SOULFLY last night [May 12] at the Irving Plaza [in New York City]. There wasn't a ton of people, which was great because it was easy to get a drink. Like the third song in was 'Roots Bloody Roots' [by SEPULTURA], which is always good to hear. About 10 minutes later, Derrick Green and Andreas Kisser from SEPULTURA [who are currently in New York City doing press for their recently released album 'Dante XXI'] walk in!!! They stayed in the back by the bar and had a few drinks but watched the rest of the show. Don't know if Max [Cavalera, ex-SEPULTURA and current SOULFLY frontman] knew, but I don't [think] he said anything from the stage about [it]. A few people came over [to Andreas and Derrick] and took photos or asked for autographs. Both guys were SUPER-cool with that."

SEPULTURA parted ways with Max Cavalera in December 1996 following a dispute over the band's management, which was being handled at the time by Max's wife Gloria Cavalera. Despite persistent rumors of a possible reunion of SEPULTURA's classic lineup, Kisser and Cavalera have not spoken to each other in almost ten years.

In a recent interview with the Spiritribe webzine, Kisser had the following to say regarding the possibility of working with Max in a band situation once again:

"I heard Max saying a lot of stuff [about a possible reunion] lately in interviews but we can't really give too much credit [to] what he says, because I heard so many different [things] — he's very contradictory in the stuff that he says. But these rumors about a reunion [have been] going on since he left the band, since the first day, like, 'He's comin' back tomorrow!' (Laughs) That's something we learned to live with. There's nothing going on [with regards to a possible reunion]. For us it would be the worst time of all, doing something like that [right now]. We're so much focused on our career, our label, our manager... towards the future, [and] not going back. So I don't see that happening right now. I can't deny that it would be great to have a chance to play again together. We built something very special together. But it's gona have to be like [it was in the] good old days, you know — talk to each other, practice and... and do it right! Not putting the money on the table and go on stage and play. That would be total disrespect to our fans, and people [would] feel that [it was being done for the wrong reasons] — there's no way to fool them! (Laughs) So, let's see! We're very focused on what we're doin' right now."
