Former SEPULTURA drummer Igor "Iggor" Cavalera makes an appearance on the new album and in the new video from the São Paulo, Brazil-based hardcore band QUESTIONS.
QUESTIONS recently released its second CD on Liberation Records, entitled "Fight for What You Believe". Cavalera can be heard in the track "Conscience", for which the band recently shot a video. Watch the clip online at this location. A short documentary-style clip featuring footage of QUESTIONS recording "Conscience" with Igor can be found at YouTube.
As previously reported, MIXHELL — the DJ/hip hop/electro project featuring former SEPULTURA drummer Igor "Iggor" Cavalera and his wife Laima Leyton — is featured in a new Brazilian commercial for Nokia in which five DJs come together to perform live using only mobile phones. Watch the three-minute commercial at YouTube.
Igor Cavalera left SEPULTURA in June 2006 due to "artistic differences." He has since been replaced by Jean Dolabella (ex-UDORA).
Igor's departure from SEPULTURA came five months after he announced that he was taking a break from the group's touring activities to spend time with his second wife and their new son (who was born in January 2006). Filling in on drums during the band's spring 2006 European tour with IN FLAMES was Roy Mayorga, who played with Igor's brother Max in SOULFLY for several years in the late '90s and again in 2001-2003.
Igor is the second Cavalera to leave SEPULTURA. In 1996, Max Cavalera exited the group after the rest of the band fired Max's wife Gloria as SEPULTURA's manager.
Igor and Max are currently working on a brand new project which will feature collaborations with various guest musicians. "This project is going to be very much like a volcano exploding," Max said in a recent interview. "We've had so much anger and aggression building up, and I know that Igor is going to fucking destroy the drum kit in the studio. I really doubt the drum kit will even survive the recording, and I hope doesn't. So far it's sounding very aggressive, but again, at this point there are no rules or limitations with it. It's going to be mainly just me and Igor, but I want to have some other guys involved with it. It's going to be similar to NAILBOMB in that it's only two guys, some friends, and one album — but it's definitely going to have its own style. It's metal Cavalera style, and it's the closest thing that anyone's going to get to seeing any type of reunion. I don't know what the fuck is going to happen with it, but I'm very excited to see where it goes and what we can do." More...
