Igor Cavalera was recently interviewed by Metal-Rules.com, in which he had this to say about his former band Sepultura:

Metal-Rules.com: Are you on good terms with your former bandmates in SEPULTURA?

Igor: Yeah, yeah it's fine. You know it's like, no drama, I just wanted to continue to do different stuff I wish them all the best.

Metal-Rules.com: So they have your blessing to continue to use the name SEPULTURA without you or Max?

Igor: Yeah, I mean, it's not my choice. I left SEPULTURA same way as Max. I don't think it's my choice to stop them from doing it. I think people have to decide whether they want to see SEPULTURA without me and Max. It's not up to us, really.

Metal-Rules.com: How would you feel about one day doing a full-on SEPULTURA reunion?

Igor: Not really, man. Max wanted to have that, especially for his kids, he wanted his kids to see a SEPULTURA gig once, with the original lineup, but…I don't know, I like doing CAVALERA better. It's new music, for me it's great, I don't have a problem with anything we've done in the past, I'm really proud, I just don't wanna live from the past. So the reunion I think for me, it would be kinda like going back and living off what we did before. CAVALERA, for me, is more exciting.

Metal-Rules.com: I read that in the early days of SEPULTURA, you specially handpainted a SEPULTURA t-shirt for Mille Petrozza from KREATOR, you've come a long way since then…

Igor: We handpainted some SEPULTURA shirts, we sent one to Mille, we sent one to Chuck [Schuldiner, late DEATH mainman] and we sent one to Trey from MORBID ANGEL… and we saw the three of them wearing it in different fanzines, and at the time me and Max were like, "OK. That's it….we don't need to do anything else. We made it." We have these people that we fucking idolize wearing our shirts, that's OK, we don't need anything else. I remember being so happy about it….having the response from Chuck, from all these people and I was like cool, it's like having somebody like Lemmy wearing your shirt.
