Max Cavalera Talks About NEW Project With Members Of MASTODON & THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN; CAVALERA CONSPIRACY To Start South American Tour Tomorrow!

Recently, Bo Skullbanger from "Vicious Volume" (Metal radio show in Singapore) interviewed icon Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SEPULTURA) before SOULFLY's October 20 performance at Malaysia's Rockaway festival.

During the 4 part interview (see below), Cavalera discussed his as-yet-unnamed NEW project with Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), Dave Elitch (ex-MARS VOLTA) and Troy Sanders (MASTODON). This is what he had to say about his NEW super group:

"Troy [Sanders] from MASTODON just joined the band, too, so now we've got three singers for the project, which is also really killer. I'm really excited about that, too. I think it's gonna be a very original project. I don't know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this. So it can be almost like a TRANSPLANTS of metal. TRANSPLANTS had three singers; this also has three singers, and it can be very, very great. I'm following, in a lot of ways, some of the same footsteps as NAILMBOMB [Max's mid-1990s project with Alex Newport of FUDGE TUNNELin my approach to this project — a lot of do-it-yourself, punk-rock kind of feeling to the project. So the songs are written really quick — I don't think too much about it. I like it more like that, so they are very raw. We are working on the [music] in December and then we're hoping to get in the studio in January. The main thing we don't have is a name."

In other Cavalera news, SOULFLY's manager Gloria Cavalera (Max Cavalera's wife) has confirmed to us that her son Zyon Cavalera (Lody Kong) will be filling in for SOULFLY while they find a permanent replacement for Kinkade. More details HERE!
