Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser recently discussed his De La Tierra project, a groove metal four-piece consisting of prominent South American musicians performing in their native tongue.
Chatting with Loudwire, Kisser expressed hope to reach the "worldwide phenomenon" status of Rammstein and be able to tour all parts of the globe without compromise.
Asked about future plans, the guitarist replied, "Release more albums, and play as much as we can everywhere. Not only in the Latin world but really break the barrier of the language."
Touching on the German metallers, Kisser added, "Somehow like Rammstein, using German and being a worldwide phenomenon, they play everywhere, without changing their native language, you know? So, I think it’s to go everywhere really, just to cross that Latin world, but take it everywhere. Go into different festivals, like Sepultura does, not only for the Latin audience."
Apart from Andreas, the band consists of Andres Gimenez of A.N.I.M.A.L., Sr. Flavio of Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Alex Gonzalez behind the drum kit.
De La Tierra's self-titled debut is out now via Roadrunner Records. Check out the "Maldita Historia" video single below.
