Max and Iggor Cavalera have reunited for the first time in over a decade. The two brothers will preside over The Cavalera Conspiracy, their new sonic outfit.
The group's debut album, Inflikted, will drop on March 25th, 2008 via Roadrunner Records.
"Cavalera Conspiracy is about a sense of being unleashed," says vocalist/guitarist Max Cavalera. "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." Following a live onstage reunion back in 2006 Max and Iggor, who hadn't performed since being in Sepultura, decided it was time to re-enter the studio together.
The Cavalera Conspiracy consists of Max Cavalera (vocals/rhythm guitar), Iggor Cavalera (drums/percussion), Marc Rizzo (lead/rhythm guitars), and Joe Duplantier (bass). The band recorded the album over the past summer at Undercity Studios in Los Angeles, with Logan Mader (former Machine Head guitarist) and Lucas Banker of the Dirty Icon production team. Rex Brown (Pantera, Down) cameos on bass on "Ultra-Violent," and "Black Ark" features a collaboration with Max, Joe and Richie Cavalera (Incite) all on vocals.
