Days of our Lives \\ Capítulo de hoje: Andreas, Paulo e Derick assistem o primeiro show do CAVALERA CONSPIRACY no Brasil

SEPULTURA members Andreas Kisser (guitar), Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr. (bass) and Derrick Green (vocals) witnessed the first-ever performance in Brazil by CAVALERA CONSPIRACY — the project featuring former SEPULTURA members Max (guitar, vocals) and Igor Cavalera (drums) — on October 11, 2010 at the SWU Music and Arts Festival at the Maeda Farm in Itú (about 43.5 miles away from São Paulo).

Two separate Brazilian TV reports — from "Jornal da Globo" and "Revista de Sábado" — featuring interview clips with members of both bands as well as CAVALERA CONSPIRACY performance footage can be viewed below.

In a recent issue of U.K.'s Terrorizer magazine, Andreas and Paulo spoke about the possibility of a reunion of SEPULTURA's classic lineup, featuring Max Cavalera on guitar/lead vocals and his brother, Igor Cavalera, on drums.

"There's no reason to have a reunion," Paulo said. "The only reason to have a reunion would be the money and that's it.

"We have no contact [with Max], no nothing.

"In Brazil, there's a saying, 'zero on the left,' which means nothing. For me it's like that — gone.

"He [Max] left the band because he wanted to.

"'Keep going with your life, leave me alone; I have nothing to do with you anymore. Do your thing, let me do my thing.' And that's it. I don't care.

"Whatever he is doing; if he's happy, good.

"I am happy with [what the current lineup of SEPULTURA is doing] and that's what I'm sticking to.

"We don't want to go and fuck up this lineup."

Regarding Max's claim that everyone was into the reunion but that Andreas wanted more money, Kisser said, "It's not money. Money could be on the table — as it was — but we have to enjoy ourselves.

"Like I say, we are not slaves of our situation; that I have to go there because I was part of something successful ten or fifteen years ago.

"I have a lot more fun playing with SEPULTURA today than ever.

"We have everything very much organized. We don't have band managers like we used to. We have a much clearer situation of the business.

"We took our road, the hard road, but it was a learning road.

"Max is a really great riff player. As a singer, he has a voice that is very characteristic. He is very charismatic on stage.

"He left [and] we respect that. We took the burden. He took all the good.

"Why would he want to come back now? If you are so happy doing the stuff you are doing, be that.

"I've heard so much stuff that Max has said over the years, but, as I said, money is not an issue.

"The first time they approached us was some ridiculous offer, and me and Paulo had to share ten percent of it all or something stupid like that.

"I am not going on stage as a puppet. I am a musician, for life.

"If we are going to do this, then we have to do it properly. I am not going to practice one day to do one show, one gig after so long, disrespecting our history, disrespecting our fans, just to be there to fulfill some expecations of management, of booking agents. And they want to talk about money? They don't have to show their faces, we have to."
