    Just read about that, too. :(

    The complete statement reads as follows:
    Drummer and co- founder of the Brazilian biggest heavy metal band claims outworn and incompatibility of thoughts with the remaining band members, and signalizes new projects.

    One of the founders of the Brazilian biggest heavy metal band, Iggor Cavalera, announces that he is leaving Sepultura. Cavalera, drummer and musician claims outworn and incompatibility of thoughts with the remaining band members, and signalizes new projects.

    “A lot of reasons made me take this important decision in my life and I would like to share it with everybody. I believe my mission in Sepultura has come to an end. I am very proud of all we have done, but nowadays I feel that the band formation no longer lives up to my expectations. Since my last European tour in 2004, I have noticed that my ideas didn’t match with the others.”, asserts Iggor.

    Since 1985, Sepultura has putted out ten world wide releases (“Bestial Devastation”, 1985; “Morbid Visions”, 1986; “Schizophrenia”, 1987; “Beneath the Remains”, 1989; “Arise”, 1991; “Roots”, 1996; “Against”, 1998; “Nation”, 2001 “Roorback”, 2003 e Dante XXI, 2006), that sold millions of copies. The band reached it’s peak in 1996, with the release of the album “Roots” which represented a musical swerve in the heavy metal scene, introducing new experiences as tribal percussions and the work with the Brazilian Indian tribe, Xavantes. However, after the album release and the world tour of “Roots”, guitarist, singer and Iggor’s brother, Max Cavalera, left the band to continue his solo career. Sepultura continued their works and success with a new singer, Derrick Green.

    Apart from touring since 2005, when he was substituted by Roy Mayorga, Iggor noticed that his personal ambitions where worlds apart from the rest of the band and slightly detached from the creative process of Sepultura. “Many years of work in group, made the relationship get outworn and I feel that there isn’t compatibility of thoughts and ideas between the rest of the band and me. I tried to make this clear and suggested that we should take a break. However their priority was to continue playing in despite of my permanence”, says Iggor.

    As a drummer and musician, Iggor persists and look forward to new references to produce something authentic and real, which may represent what Sepultura was once in his life. Lately the musician researches a contemporary view of the heavy metal scene, looking for different influences such as hip hop, hardcore, tribal percussions and electronic music. According to Iggor, the decision of leaving Sepultura was one of the most difficult in his career, once that, as founder of the band, he dedicated most of his life to it.

    “I would like to immeasurably thank all of the fans which supported me and continue encouraging our music. And also to everyone who had worked to make Sepultura exist.”

    i don`t know gays but i think that was a good decision because the Sepultura legion had to ecxist with the same music and succes without Max he made everything and no one can say other thing ;/







  • I think it's so sad.. Now theres only two cool members in Sepultura: Kisser and Paolo!

    Kisser is such a good guitarist, he deserves alot of love!

    Anyone who knows about new project for Igor? Has he joined some new bands or something?

    Derrick is cool too, a very nice person irl... He just comes from a Hardcore background which obviously plays against (no pun intend) him.

    Kisser made Sepultura imo.

    Igor has worked with Necro recently.

  • Kisser is a awesome guitarist, but nevertheless i think Sepultura without Cavalleras will never become as good as before.

  • Holy fuck.
    There are almost nomore sepultura back. I hope kisser stille can do something out of the band.

    I only know that Igor is doing some kind of hiphip/electro project.. not anything like Sepultura.

    Hmm.. I don't have high hopes anymore for a possible reunion tour...
