Sepultura will reunite with producer Ross Robinson for the next album, it has been revealed.
Robinson last worked with the band on 1996's "Roots," which remains their most successful release to date. Now Robinson will co-produce a new Sepultura release Steve Evetts who recorded three albums with the band in the early 2000s.
Robinson rose to fame in the 1990s as a defining nu-metal producer thanks to his work with Korn, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and many others. According to Blabbermouth, the idea to return to Robinson was suggested by Monte Connoer, a former Roadrunner A&R boss who now runs the Nuclear Blast label.
"Monte was the guy who signed Sepultura to Roadrunner in 1988," said guitarist Andreas Kisser. "It's been a nice experience working with him again. He always brought a good energy to the band."
Sepultura have made a solid start to the album and have 13 songs in development already. It's too early for the band to comment on what fans can expect from their latest sound, but Kisser is confident that it'll be a strong release.
"This is the first time writing with [21-year-old drum prodigy] Eloy Casagrande on drums and everything sounds fresh," said Kisser. "You'll just have to wait to hear it. It's very difficult to describe what we're doing, but I can say that will be one of the strongest Sepultura albums to date. It will be definitely one of the best albums in the history of Sepultura."
