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!
