Ryan Ogle recently conducted an extensive interview with Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy guitarist Marc Rizzo for CrusherMagazine.com. They cover Rizzo's solo project, flammenco influences, Soulfly, and The Cavalera Conspiracy. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

Ryan Ogle: You’re also part of what is arguably one the most anticipated metal band ever, Cavalera Conspiracy.

Marc Rizzo: That’s another great project. That’s a funny story too; I was on tour with Flaw and had to jump off the tour early and fly out to LA from Michigan because we were starting the record. It was just kind of a last minute thing. To be in the studio with Max and Igor…Damn, it was like a dream come true for me. It was so weird, because I was such a huge fan of Sepultura and grew up listening to them and playing their songs in cover bands. To be in the studio with Igor and Max and to be a part of the writing process; it was unbelievable. It definitely sounds like old Sepultura – Arise, Chaos A.D – but it’s got its own vibe to it. It’s hard to say. When you hear it, you’re gonna say "Okay, this is Igor and Max." But it has its own vibe too.

He is an amazing guitarist. I met him in Birmingham and he was one of the most down to earth guys I've ever met, didn't mind signing anything or taking photos with us, just a really cool genuine bloke. I haven't heard anything from his latest album but his first was immense.
