Sepultura Guitarist Andreas Kisser Says He’s ‘Definitely Very Happy with The Sound’ on The Upcoming Metal Messiah Album

Sepultura’s new album, Machine Messiah, will be released on January 13th via Nuclear Blast Records. In a new interview with The Rockpit, guitarist Andreas Kisser discusses the upcoming release.

Asked if he’s happy with the way Machine Messiah turned out, Andreas says, “Oh yeah definitely man, everything from the composition to the recording, working in Sweden with Jens Bogren and everything was amazing. Definitely very happy with the sound, Jens produced, mixed and mastered everything so I think it was a perfect choice of a producer to do the type of album we wanted to do like really explore the musicianship and try to break our limits all the time so it was great. It feels good to listen to everything now, ready and in order with the cover and everything so it’s a great feeling.”
