Max Cavalera's Son Drumming For Soulfly July 31

 
Soulfly will be performing at Lokerse Feesten in Belgium on July 31, and Max Cavalera's son Zyon will be behind the drum kit.  He made many special appearances with Cavalera Conspiracy on their recent European tour, performing "Attitude/Cockroaches" at Sonisphere, With Full Force, and Hellfest, to name a few. According to Gloria Cavalera, Max's wife and manager (and Zyon's mom), he learned to drum "sitting at the feet of some of the most gifted metal drummers of all time, including his uncle Iggor Cavalera (when he was in Sepultura!!!), Bill Ward, and Roy Mayorga, to name a few." This will be a special guest appearance only, since Zyon's full-time band is Mold Breaker, formed with his younger brother Igor. Here's some audience-shot footage of Zyon performing with Cavalera Conspiracy at the Nova Rock festival in Austria this summer: Soulfly's most recent CD, 2008's Conquer, is available now from Amazon and iTunes..
