Sepultura - Sign With Nuclear Blast Records


Sepultura have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records.

Guitarist Andreas Kisser states: "We are happy to be at Nuclear Blast, especially in the year we are celebrating 25 years of history, and it is a great honor for us to join forces with the most metal label in the world. I am sure this will be a great journey for both of us and we are already working on new material while on the road. Let's go for another 25 years!"

Nuclear Blast A&R manager Jaap Wagemaker further comments: "Yes, you got that right! Another great thrash band has joined the Nuclear family! We have been following the band around Andreas and Derrick Green for quite some time now and every time when we saw them play live, we were equally impressed by the sheer energy that they create on stage! After inviting the band to come to Donzdorf (Germany; Nuclear Blast's worldwide headquarters) and having some talks with them, we soon found out that we are all on the same page regarding what would be best for the future of Sepultura!

After 25 years of forging high-class thrash metal, the band is more alive than ever and we at Nuclear Blast are very happy that together with Sepultura we will work on another successful chapter in that history! A new album will be out in 2011 and judging from what we heard from the band, the best is yet to come!"

Got Mayhem?
After 25 years of forging high-class thrash metal and then turning south...

Fixed. Congrats to the band though, it's really just their happiness that matters. I guess.

Well, I'm not surprised, Nuclear Blast have been signing a lot of well known bands to their armies the entire past year, so, another one is not a surprise, the question is, which bands are next? Place your bets...

Great on Sepultura! I wish them all the best and by how I found A-lex to be a quintessential area in their status after Dante XXI, I am now looking onto their next work as of this.

Cavalera Conspiracy and Soulfly (as their last album shows) are just attempting again and again to "play what they once did originally" and failing for some part, instead of Sepultura that are always changing and following on.

This is a respect that I highly take granted for them.

Hope the new album will be more Dante XXI and less A-Lex.

After the letdown that was A-Lex, I'm not too sure what'll become out of this album. Everything since Against, with the exception of Dante XXI has more or less sucked.
