Interview

Interview With Max Cavalera

Between touring the world with Soulfly and preparing the upcoming Cavalera Conspiracy album, Brazilian Metal icon, Max Cavalera, found the time to release an album with the super group Killer Be Killed and finally unveil his long-awaited autobiography, "My Bloody Roots."

It's fair to say that this 44-year-old metal legend isn't resting on his laurels but striving for new creative heights. For him, stopping isn't an option.

We had the opportunity to talk with Max about his experience with Killer Be Killed (which also includes members of Mastodon, The Mars Volta and The Dillinger Escape Plan) and the process of putting together "My Bloody Roots" with author Joel McIver. We found him eager and excited to talk about these two new projects.

Do you remember how Killer Be Killed was put together?

Yeah. It was (vocalist) Greg Puciato’s idea. He wanted to do a project and he invited me to do it with him and we did some demos and it was really cool. We added a drummer, David Elitch. He was Greg’s friend, great drummer and we wrote more songs with him and then we ended up inviting Troy from Mastodon, to be the bass player and singer and having three singers. I think that’s really the coolest thing about Killer be Killed, the band has three vocalists. That’s so unique in Metal and made the record really cool and we practiced a lot.

We practiced and wrote songs in different phases and finally we entered the studio and sit down and did the whole record. I’m really excited because I think is a really good record.

You are very well-known guys in the Metal scene. On top of that, the band has three vocalists. Was this an advantage or a problem while writing/recording? Were there big egos clashing during the process? More...

Max Cavalera Talks New Album "Savages"

The groove masters in Soulfly only took a year from the release of “Enslaved” to come back with a new full-length, this time titled “Savages.”

With the album now hitting stores, it seemed fitting to chat up the iconic front man Max Cavalera himself to find out more about the short time frame and what went into this latest metal assault.

A transcription of our talk is available below, in which Cavalera discusses how the passing of his father impacted his life and his decision to get into music, the many people involved in “Savages,” and a teaser of when fans can expect new material from Cavalera Conspiracy. More...

Interview With Soulfly's Max Cavalera

Recently I had gotten the chance to interview one of my all-time favorite musicians/vocalists Max Cavelera of Soulfly. This was amazing to do since I’ve been a big fan of Max’s since way back when he was in Sepultura. I found Max and his wife both to be extremely nice and very down to earth as well. Anyway, without further adieu here is my interview with Max Cavalera: More...
