Max Cavalera (Soulfly, etc.) has a different direction in mind for the next release from him and his brother Igor “Iggor” Cavalera‘s band Cavalera Conspiracy. Max recently told live-metal.net that the groups new album would be “all grindcore”. The following exchange took place with the above-mentioned site in regards to that:
“On the other hand–again, I know you’re very busy–but what’s the status of Cavalera Conspiracy? Are we gonna hear any more of that in the future from you and (your brother) Igor (Cavalera)?
Yeah, we’re making another record next year–all grindcore. I wanna do a grindcore record with that.
A grindcore record?
Yeah, I think it would be really cool. People haven’t heard that from me yet, and I think people will be surprised. I love that kind of stuff–(bands like) Wormrot, Nails and Pulling Teeth. Just super-heavy with like one-minute songs and kind of old Napalm Death style. I think Igor is going to go for it, man. I think we’re going to pull it out. And then we’ll really shock the world with that.
That sounds very cool, very interesting.
It’s always good to do something new, something exciting. I thought of the grindcore idea when I was going through my music collection, and I thought, “I’ve never done a grindcore album. OK, well maybe it’s time to do one? OK, let’s do it with Cavalera (Conspiracy) … OK, let’s do it.”
