Guitarist/vocalist Joe Duplantier of the French progressive death metallers GOJIRA will play bass on the debut CD from the new project featuring SEPULTURA founding members Max and Igor Cavalera. Recordings for the album began this past weekend in Los Angeles with producers Dirty Icon (Logan Mader [ex-MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY] and Lucas Banker). A late 2007 release via Roadrunner Records is expected.

Commented Duplantier: "Playing with Max and Igor is like living a dream, I've always had so much respect for their musical achievements; it is an incredible personal experience for me."

In a recent interview posted on SOULFLY's official web site, Max stated about his collaboration with Igor, "I think it's sounding like a combination of things I've done with NAILBOMB and SEPULTURA, and even SOULFLY, of course, but these songs are coming to be more live on the spot. I recorded some simple four-tracks for a lot of them, similar to the ones that people may have heard through the SOULFLY MySpace, and I sent out a CD to everybody about a month ago with like 10 songs, but at that time I didn't even know exactly who else I'd be working with in the project. I knew that Igor would be doing drums and percussion, and I'd be doing vocals and guitar. Now Marc Rizzo is going to be playing lead guitar and and the [guitarist] and vocalist from GOJIRA will help us out to give it a bit of a different vibe. I like GOJIRA a lot — they're a fucking kick-ass band. It's a special album for me because it's a very global group of musicians. One from France [from GOJIRA], one from the U.S., and two from Brasil. I think that's going to add something very cool, even trippy, and definitely my style."

Let's see..... Add a dash of American, a handful of Brazil and pinch of France. Don't forget the obligatory "metal" to round out this full-featured dish.

What do you get? Bramerancetal.

Okay, that was lame. I had to do it, though.
