The Rumors Are True: Max and Igor Officially Reunite as Cavalera Conspiracy



Last seen together publicly at a benefit gig August 17, 2006 in honor of Max Cavalera's slain stepson, Dana "D-Low" Wells while performing a cover of Bad Brains' "Attitude," the Cavalera brothers, Max and Igor have taken the next step outside of their original Sepultura homebase to form Cavalera Conspiracy. Their debut album Inflikted will be released by Roadrunner on March 25th.

The brothers will be joined by ace guitarist and Soulfly regular Marc Rizzo as well as Joe Duplantier on bass.

Max comments, "Cavalera Conspiracy is about a sense of being unleashed. You bottle a monster for 10 years and then let it out. It’s explosive, and we waited a long time for this beast to be set free. There was over 10 years of not seeing or talking to each other at all, which is a long ass time. That’s what made it more special when it did finally happen."

Commenting on the now-historic gig in Tempe, Arizona that brought the Cavaleras together again, Igor adds, "Once we hit the first note, it felt like a bomb had dropped on stage. From that moment on, I knew we needed to do something together musically.”

Former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader and Lucas Banker of the Dirty Icon production team handled the recording duties of Inflikted. Pantera and Down bassist Rex Brown cameos on the song "Ultra-Violent," while Incite's Richie Cavalera joins the gang vocally on "Black Ark."

Here's the track listing for Inflikted:
