Cavalera Conspiracy, the band featuring founding Sepultura members Max and Igor Cavalera, as well as Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo and Fireball Ministry bassist Johnny Chow, has revealed that they have finished recording their as yet untitled second album. The album is not expected to be released until early next year however, owing to the forthcoming release of the new Soulfly album, "Omen." Stay tuned for further information as it becomes available.
Marc Rizzo of Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy has added the following three East Coast solo dates in May:
5/6/2010 – the Penny Acrade (Rochester, NY)
5/7/2010 – Dingbatz (Clifton, NJ)
5/8/2010 – Voices Rock Club (Lowell, MA)
These dates will be Rizzo’s only area appearances prior to leaving to Europe with Soulfly for the summer. Rizzo just completed recording Cavalera Conspiracy’s new record in L.A. Aside from the new recording, Marc also released his third solo record titled "Legionnaire" earlier this year.
Cavalera Conspiracy, the band featuring former Sepultura members (and co-founders) Max and Igor Cavalera, along with Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo, has announced that they will be entering the studio this April to begin work on their second studio album, the follow up to 2008's "Inflikted" record. The album is expected to be released sometime at the end of the year through Roadrunner Records. The news comes as a surprise to some since both Cavalera's have been keeping busy lately with their main musical projects, namely Soulfly and Mixhell. Igor Cavalera has also mentioned that there is a possibility of releasing a re-mixed version of "Inflikted" at some point and that they are hoping to get electronic favourites such as Soulwax and Justice to contribute. Stay tuned for further details.
Inpsychobleedia, a side project of Marc Rizzo (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy), has posted a video for their song "Blind Leads The Blind" online. Watch the video below:

Billboard.com reports: Ozzfest 2008, with Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne as headliners, grossed nearly $3.5 million and drew close to 30,000 people to Dallas' Pizza Hut Park, according to producers Sharon Osbourne and AEG Live.
Sponsored by Affliction Clothing, this year's Ozzfest marked the return of the 13-year-old hard music brand after a free run at amphitheaters last year. This year's one-off event did "fantastically well," Sharon Osbourne told Billboard.com. "The one thing is you want for the kids to go away and keep talking about what a great show it was, and that's what they're doing."
In addition to Metallica and Osbourne, mainstage acts were Serj Tankian, Hellyeah, Johnathan Davis, Cavalera Conspiracy, Shadows Fall, Apocalyptica, and In This Moment. The second stage featured Sevendust, Devildriver, Kingdom of Sorrow, Soilent Green, Witchcraft and Goatwhore. On the third stage were the Sword, Drowning Pool, Rigor Mortis, Within Chaos, The Destro and "battle of the bands" winners Debris and Black Tooth.
Osbourne says plans are for Ozzfest to return to Dallas again next summer, likely as a two-day festival, and other cities are also being considered. "Ozzfest ain't going anywhere," she says. "We do try and shake things up and experiment. We're not the old donkey that plods on doing the same sh*t."

Nearly 20,000 hard rock and metal fans braved the heat on Saturday to show their support for the one-off, one-day Monsters of Rock in Calgary, AB. While the line to get into McMahon Stadium stretched over a football field in length as ticket holders went through to the necessary ticket scans and bag checks, Zimmers Hole grabbed the stage by the bull horns and audibly spurred concert goers as they trickled in. Zimmers Hole, fronted by Chris Valagao (who later signed autographs wearing nothing but red body paint and a butt flap), gave a short, but high energy sampling of funny, thrashy goodness. And it was super cool of Ozzy to have a Canadian band kick start the festivities. More...
