Cavalera Conspiracy Biography
The Death-Metal Thrash-Metal combo Cavalera Conspiracy marked the reunion
of Max and Iggor Cavalera, the Brazilian brothers and visionaries that
formed the groundbreaking hardcore Metal band Sepultura
in the early '80s. After twelve years apart, during which time Max Cavalera
fronted Soulfly, the brothers recruited
French guitarist Joe Duplantier to play bass; guitarist Marc Rizzo, who
plays guitar in Max's main band Soulfly,
was enlisted to play guitar; Max took on the vocal + rhythm guitar role
and Iggor took on the drumming duties.
In the sunner of 2007 the quartet entered the Undercity Studios in Los Angeles, California USA, with Logan Mader, former Machine Head guitarist and Lucas Banker of the Dirty Icon production team to cut what would become the Cavalera Conspiracy's debut disc.
The album, titled "Inflikted", came out in March 2008 on Roadrunner Records, going straight into the upper half of The Billboard 200; "Sanctuary" was designated to be the lead single. The band supported the release by playing shows and festivals in North America and even Europe; Duplantier left the crew during this time frame and was replaced by bass player Johny Chow.
Aside from this project, Max Cavalera continued to record with Soulfly
releasing "Conquer" in mid-2008 and "Omen" two years
"Blunt Force Trauma", the forthcoming album from Cavalera Conspiracy is set to hit stores on March 29, 2011. The disc features 11 brand new songs including the single/video "Killing Inside".
