Sepultura’s Derrick Green on this week’s show 

This week I catch up Derrick Green from the most famous Brazilian Heavy Metal band Sepultura who are currently bulldozing through North America supporting Testament.

img_5506With a blistering new album “Machine Messiah” and documentary film “Sepultura Endurance” I catch up with Derrick at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco to chat about how the tour went with the Bay Area titans, the making of the album, the documentary and being in Sepultura for twenty years.

Now for me, Sepultura and my love for them stems back to 1993 when Chaos AD devastated all metal albums that year and became one of Roadrunners best selling albums of all time. Some years later at Donington 1996 I finally got to see them play for the first time…. But hang on a minute, where was Max? He decided to not show and Andreas took over the vocals. As a three piece they smashed it. However the label had other ideas and wanted them to find a new vocalist since Max was now going full time with Soulfly.

Meanwhile, somewhere in New York ripping up stages with Punk bands a guy sent a tape to audition for the frontman position. Phone calls were made and before he knew it Derrick Green was being summoned to fly down to Brazil.

The rest, as they say is history. Through their ups and downs Sepultura have stood the test of time. With their musical peers all coming forward to be part of the new documentary ‘Sepultura Endurance’ and with a critically acclaimed new album, it shows that Sepultura are truly here to stay.

“I’m very happy and excited that the SEPULTURA movie is finally done,” comments Andreas Kisser. “It is an amazing achievement from the director Otavio Juliano and the producer Luciana Ferraz from the Interface Films. Otavio followed the band on the road, on the studio and collected amazing statements from many people who are or were a part of this fantastic history. Sepultura Endurance shows a story of this Brazilian band who conquered the world, suffered the ups and downs of a unique career that are still going strong. He filmed the historical show we did in Sao Paulo in 2015 for the celebrations of the 30th year anniversary tour and that’s the central line of the whole history, our music! Through the music, we tell this story. We invite you to enter this time machine and explore the SepulHistory with no dramas or sensationalism. Enjoy the ride!”
