Metal Hammer Germany recently conducted a track-by-track interview with Max Cavalera for the forthcoming CAVALERA CONSPIRACY debut, Inflikted. An excerpt appears below:

‘Inflikted’: "It was the first lyric for the album. Back in 1992 I was in Indonesia with Iggor for SEPULTURA shows. There we visited this really crazy ritual with lot’s of fire and piercings – all very self inflicted. But while hurting themselves they didn’t feel the pain because they were tranced. I was very intrigued by this ritual. Because it’s me and Iggor now, I thought it cool to start the album with a track that’s based on such an old experience."

‘Sanctuary’: "I like about this song that it’s almost a NAILBOMB song. Very fast and straight forward. It rips your head of right away. The vocals are very aggressive – some people told me it might be my best vocals so far.I like that a lot. And the middle section is just fine. Marc Rizzo sings with 'everybody die tonite' in kind of a punk rock feeling. Old BIOHAZARD-style. And it’s the first video for the album."

‘Terrorize’: "Iggor’s drumbeat at the beginning is a very cool but simple groove from northern Brazil. It’s very ritualistic. I like the groove and the lines of the lyrics. It is dedicated to Jesse Pintardo of NAPALM DEATH and TERRORIZER, because Terrorizer is a huge influence for me."
