Jackson got a backstage pass at one of SEPULTURA's recent shows to catch up with guitarist Andreas Kisser for a look at some of his go-to Jackson guitars. Check out the clip below.
SEPULTURA's latest album, "Machine Messiah", was released on January 13 via Nuclear Blast. The disc was produced by the band and Jens Bogren (SOILWORK, OPETH, KATATONIA, AMON AMARTH) of Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden. The CD's cover artwork was created by Filipino artist Camille Della Rosa.
Asked which is his favorite SEPULTURA album from the Derrick Green era of the band, Kisser told Full Metal Racket: "I never really divided our career like that — pre or post — because we have [had] a few changes. Of course, the singer was the most powerful, whatever, most radical change. But we are on our third drummer, I myself, I joined in '87, and we play songs from all over our career. We don't play only songs… like a political setlist, let's say, [or just] play the new stuff. But usually I like the newer material always. But I really feel this album ['Machine Messiah'] is our best work with Derrick. And Igor [Cavalera, original SEPULTURA drummer] was working with us ten years after Max [Cavalera, former SEPULTURA frontman] left the band. And I really like 'Kairos'  a lot, because it was a very important album — first album with Nuclear Blast. It was the last album with Jean Dolabella on drums. So we had a few changes there that also changed and gave a new direction for the band. Everyone that came into the band brought something new. And that's something that we like to respect always — not try to copy formulas and try to fulfill expectations that are impossible to fulfill. Yeah, I think 'Machine Messiah' is one of our best works, period, in our career, for sure."
