Cavalera Conspiracy album announced

Thursday, September 13, 2007 4:03 PM PT


Official press release:

Brazilian metal titans Max and Igor Cavalera have commenced writing and recording new material for the first time in 12 years, since recording Sepultura's Roots in 1995. The new project, named Cavalera Conspiracy, features the Cavalera brothers (Max on vocals and rhythm guitar and Igor on drums), Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo and Joe Duplantier from Gojira on bass. Rex Brown (Pantera) cameos on bass on one track. Another track features a collaboration with Max, Joe and Richie Cavalera (Incite) on vocals.

Monte Conner, Roadrunner Records Senior VP of A&R recently visited the band in the studio. "Having stopped by the studio, I can tell you the magic between Max and Igor is still there. When these brothers play together, it's like the planets align,” he says. "Igor's playing is simply on fire, and as always, Max continues to have one of the most recognizable and powerful voices in all of metal. It was great to see both Max and Igor with such big smiles on their faces."

This long-anticipated reunion between the Cavalera brothers is something fans across the globe have been clamoring for since Sepultura's last gig in December 1996. Hailing from Belo Horizonte in central Brazil, Sepultura have gained a reputation as the one of the most highly regarded and successful death/thrash metal bands of all time, with two Gold albums under their belts – Chaos A.D. (1994) and Roots (1996).

"When Igor, and I met at the 10th Annual D-Low Memorial Show and got the instruments in our hands, it was like we had never been separated. The metal was flowing in our veins,” comments Max. "It was the same in the studio."

Recording took place this past July at Undercity Studios in Los Angeles, with Logan Mader (ex-Machine Head guitarist). Mixing at Undercity is currently underway. The still untitled record is tentatively slated for a February 2008 release. Among the 11 songs set to appear are: "Inflikted,” "Bloodbrawl,” "Holy Poison,” "The Doom Of All Fires,” "Ultra-Violent” and "My Sanctuary.” A b-side cover of the Possessed death/thrash classic "The Exorcist” was also recorded.

::has high hopes:: ::realizes that hopes will almost certainly be smashed by nu-metal songs::

9/13/2007 5:12:08 PM
this could be good.... but will probably be gay. they should just do a whole album of Possessed covers. it would probalby be better

9/13/2007 5:22:30 PM
hopefully the music isnt as shitty as the name. maybe itll be old school sepultura thrash and not any of this new metal theyve been a part of lately

9/13/2007 5:49:20 PM

likeeatonjerks, please shut up. We all respect what Metal Marley has done, but thats not what we're talking about.

9/13/2007 6:44:29 PM
holy shit! there's max cavalera news on lambgoat!! can't wait for this music; max is one man who knows his music! should be a fcking crazy blend of death metal, thrash, and some bad brains style hardcore if it goes like it sounds..

9/13/2007 7:02:13 PM
if marc rizzo can just make a whole album sound like soulfly's song frontlines, which is basically sepultura - arise all over again, i'll definitely go for it

9/13/2007 7:38:22 PM
fckING FINALLY!!! Ive been waiting for this shit for 10 years. Igor still owns.

9/14/2007 1:58:53 AM
I hope his lyrics get better than the 'RISE AND FIGHT-SOLDIERS UNITE-CAVALERA TRIIIIIBE' kind though the line up's good btw

9/14/2007 9:24:12 AM
Please stop.

9/14/2007 9:42:21 AM
Guys, this is going to suck.

9/14/2007 3:18:03 PM
Id take the new sepultura over anything these nu metal gays will put out

9/14/2007 4:02:22 PM
*doesn't give a shit about critics*....this will be good.

9/14/2007 6:49:16 PM
well i'm one of the few people who've already seen this band perform and I can tell you it's definitely better and more thrashier than soulfly.

9/15/2007 12:21:22 AM
its cool i guess, but it's painfully hard to really, really care about any of the people involved in this "project" at all.

9/15/2007 6:14:34 AM
If you're not stoked on this news/upcoming album... you're probably a dumb mother fcker who listens to the worst garbage imaginable.

ROOTS BLOODYROOTS

9/15/2007 2:47:29 PM
Seriously, Septulrua/machine head/pantera were fcking awesome back in the early-mid 90's, i can't wait for this. Max rules, that last soulfly album is not bad.

9/15/2007 6:10:55 PM
"Max continues to have one of the most recognizable and powerful voices in all of metal" Someones gotta tell this dude that choking on rectum fluid doesn't help your voice!!!

9/16/2007 7:51:40 PM
I'm sure Max and Igor realise the Nu Metal trend is dead and wrote the album accordingly.

9/17/2007 1:56:43 AM
BRING DA SHIT

9/17/2007 9:25:06 AM
I'm hoping for alittle bit of the "Beneath The Remains, Arise" style thrash with the toughness of Chaos AD. I can only HOPE.
