Sepultura Vocalist Derrick Green on The MetalSucks Podcast #321
Sepultura frontman Derrick Green joins us this week. We discuss the band’s new album, Quadra, how the numerology concept throughout it relates to social issues, the importance of branching out in different musical directions with each record for both the longevity of Sepultura and for reaching Derrick’s personal goals, the fear of being in a band that traps themselves into one particular musical sound, and the importance of just having fun when creating music. Derrick also talks about the importance of family life and its deteriorating quality today, questions if modern day propaganda is geared to a selfish individual outlook, and speaks to the power of art in today’s culture.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss their experience watching Tool live on the Fear Inoculum tour, Brandon’s altercation with someone sitting in his seat, and the importance of younger rock and metal bands bringing the same excitement into our genre that Tool do.
Songs: Sepultura – “Isolation” and “Last Time,” Konvent – “Ropes Pt. II”
