Roadrunner Records asked a variety of the label's artists to fill out a brief survey explaining the highlights of their year.

Exceprts from Soulfly frontman Max Cavalera's responses can be found below (or read the full interview right here).

Best show you played: Soulfly live in Sao Paulo. The show was put together by fans. They demanded to see Soulfly live and the energy in the building was unbelievable. They sang every song so loud and I had my son, Zyon, playing drums and he stage dived into the crowd at the end of the show. What a great night!

Favorite song of 2012: Deftones, "Poltergeist," from their new album. Wicked!

Most interesting interview question you were asked this year: "I'm not gonna ask you any questions about Sepultura." That was a new one!

Biggest celebrity you met: Tony Hawk in Australia. He was skateboarding with the Big Day Out festival and we had dressing rooms right next to each other. Me and my brother went over to his dressing room to say hi; Igor gave him a Cavalera Conspiracy CD.

Personal highlight of the year: Playing with Cavalera Conspiracy in my hometown, Belo Horizonte. Taking my wife and my kids to visit the house where I grew up. It was awesome. Pure nostalgia, and at the concert we played "Troops of Doom" with Sepultura's original guitarist, Jairo!
