SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser has issued a message of appreciation to the organizers of and bands that participated in the SEPULTURA tribute show, which took place in São Paulo, Brazil on June 29th. As previously reported, 12 bands—including KORZUS, NECROMANCIA, and CLAUSTROFOBIA—performed over 50 SEPULTURA songs at the event, which paid homage to Brazil's biggest-ever metal export.
"I'd like to thank all the bands that performed in the SEPULTURA tribute show on June 29th and a big thanks to Richard Navarro, the guy behind the idea," Kisser statement reads.
"Richard called me a while ago talking about the idea of the project and the bands involved. We tried really hard to be there and watch the shows but unfortunately we were playing in Goiânia (Brasil) in the same day... but some friends were there and we heard the performances were really good and included songs from all SEPULTURA albums. We're really happy and honored to receive such a big homage.
"Only a few bands have the honor to have a homage like this.
"Once again, thank you so much! This gives us strength to keep working at our best on our music, for you Sepulfans."
