Cavalera Conspiracy is gearing up to release their third album, Pandemonium , on November 4th. We had an opportunity to talk to Max about the new album, family, Brazil, vinyl, and more. Tell us a bit about the new Cavalera Conspiracy album, Pandemonium.
What were some of your inspirations during the writing of this album? We tried to go for a real brutal vibe. Get the brothers playing metal again, but in at a raw level, faster than ever. We tried to make a real fast record—most of the songs are fast. Very influenced by lots of grindcore. It was based on that, and I think it was really cool, man. We had a lot of fun, and the three of us, me, Igor and Marc [Rizzo] recorded, and we had Nate [Newton] from Converge playing bass on top of it.
That was the perfect setup for this record, having Nate on the bass. He was so killer. This is your third Cavalera Conspiracy album. Have you and your brother found that old groove again, or is it the old groove with a new feeling? Yeah, we play better now than we ever did. We just went for that, so I wrote a bunch of really cool, fast riffs, and we went into the studio and turned those riffs into songs.
Is that you with an effect, or someone else singing? Two of them going really, really low, as low I could humanly get. My voice is really weird. Sometimes, when you mix a high-pitched voice with low voices, it creates a really cool effect. So when we mixed those voices, it became even deeper. I told the engineer to record four vocals. Two channels of regular Max, and two channels of low Max, and you get this effect. We tried it, and it was dead on. We could have done Arise, Pt.
The thing with the fans is this: I remember when we made Morbid Visions , and we were considered sellouts because we no longer just had demos. For me, it was the right record to make at the time, and it proved to influence a lot of people in the metal world. You guys were really leaders as far as that goes.
Yeah, I had to fight with Andreas over that, because Andreas was such a purist. I was telling him that Black Sabbath plays in D, we have to do some shit in D. Jason tours as Zyon's drum tech, amongst other various duties behind the scenes. In and , Zyon toured with Soulfly after David Kinkade 's retirement, and now he is a regular member as drummer. Igor briefly filled in as bassist for Soulfly in after Tony Campos left the band, and toured as keyboardist and co-vocalist during Soulfly's Point Blank Tour.
Igor was born with type 1 diabetes , and Max and Gloria set up the "Iggy Fund" in to help other families get necessary medicine for their children with juvenile diabetes. Cavalera has collaborated with many different artists while in Sepultura and Soulfly. Cavalera appeared in The Scorpion King in an off-camera role, providing the guttural screams for Dwayne Johnson.
