Virtual Festivals conducted an interview with guitarist Andreas Kisser of Sepultura at this year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, reports Blabbermouth.
Asked if Sepultura would consider covering a Justin Bieber song if they were offered a million pounds, Andreas replied without hesitation, "Yes. [laughs] We're not scared. We're not scared of music indepdently of the style or the quality. Sepultura did cover songs from, of course, the metal bands like [Black] Sabbath and everything else, and MotöRhead, and hardcore bands like Discharge and Dead Kennedys and stuff. We did Bob Marley, we did U2, we did Jane's Addiction We did so many different stuff that it would be a great challenge for us, actually."
He added, "I cannot really imagine [Sepultura doing a cover version of a song like Justin Bieber's 'Baby'] because I don't really know his music. [laughs] I would have to do [some] research and see where we can find something. But, yeah, I think that's the beauty of music itself. I think the best covers are the not, let's say, 'expectable' covers. I mean, Sepultura doing Sabbath is very expectable, but if you do something very different and you come up with something new, I think that's why a cover needs to be done."
