SEPULTURA guitarist Andreas Kisser says that he has demoed more than a dozen songs for a possible second solo album but that he simply doesn't have the time to work on the follow-up to "Hubris I & II".
A two-disc set, "Hubris I & II" was released in June 2009 via Holland's Mascot Records and was nominated in the "Best Brazilian Rock Album" category at the 2010 Latin Grammys.
Speaking to "Talking Bollocks", the monthly metal podcast hosted by ACID REIGN frontman-turned-stand-up-comedian Howard H. Smith, Kisser confirmed that he has been collecting ideas for another solo effort, but that his busy schedule, which includes touring activity with other projects, has prevented him from being able to take the LP through to its completion.
"I don't have plans, but I have a demo with around 12 to 15 songs for a next solo album," he said (hear audio below). "The only thing I really need to have time to go and really work on it and choose the songs and work on the stuff. But so far, no plans. But for sure, sooner than later, I wanna start working on it to put out something new. It would be cool."
Kisser went on to say that he really enjoyed making "Hubris I & II", which was recorded during a transitional period in SEPULTURA's career.
"It took a long time for me, because it was between changing drummers — Igor [Cavalera] was leaving the band, and two albums and stuff — but I managed to put it out," he said. "I do a lot of acoustic [playing on it]. I sing Portuguese and English, [with] many guests and stuff."
Kisser previously described the making of "Hubris I & II" as "a long process, a learning process and a great experience. It's a musical journey through the influences I had for 15 years of my life and at the same time it [was] very different from everything I did [prior to its release]."
"Hubris" comes from Greek word "hybris," which means "excessive pride, wanton violence."
SEPULTURA's latest LP, "Quadra", was released in February via Nuclear Blast Records. It is a concept effort created at Sweden's Fascination Street Studios with renowned producer Jens Bogren.
SEPULTURA comprises Kisser, vocalist Derrick Green, bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr., and drummer Eloy Casagrande.
SEPULTURA was formed in Belo Horizonte by brothers Max and Igor Cavalera, who are no longer with the band.
"Quadra" is the follow-up to "Machine Messiah", which was SEPULTURA's fourteenth studio album and the eighth since Green joined the ranks.
