Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy frontman Max Cavalera spent the weekend at his compound in Arizona, working on new material for an unnamed, no-further-details-available project (that means we don’t have a band name, let alone anything like a street date, so don’t ask) with Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato (who provided guest vocals on the song "Rise of the Fallen," from Soulfly's Omen). Puciato was first to break the news, posting the photo above on his personal site, gregpuciato.com, and then writing the following on Facebook:
"Day two out here on this writing session with Max. Hotter than fuck in the middle of the Phoenix desert. Snakes and scorpions abound....drawn to the deafening noise coming from the room. Demoing heavy music the best way possible...at blistering volumes, no headphones, guitars and mics everywhere, all plugged in at all times, sweating and uncomfortable like we're fifteen in a garage again. Maybe haven't heard Max sound this pissed since Chaos A.D. Okay, time to get to work. Just checkin' in."
Naturally, we were intrigued, and reached out to Max for comment. He said, "Everybody ask me, 'Hey Max, are you gonna do another Nailbomb?' and the answer is always No, because we killed Nailbomb on purpose. So when Greg approached me with an idea of a project, I said I'll do it, but it has to be like Nailbomb. I'm gonna share the vocals with Greg. We're gonna have a bunch of killer guest musicians, and it'll be the closest thing to a Nailbomb experience. I promise you it is going to be heavy as fuck, angry as fuck, and aggressive as fuck. Me and Greg are pissed off and we're coming your way!!!!"
Now you know everything we know. Oh, yeah - we also know that Cavalera Conspiracy are coming around on a North American tour in October, so keep an eye out for tour dates, which will be made available very soon!
