Cavalera Conspiracy — the band featuring the legendary metal brothers Cavalera, Max and Igor — are in the final stages of working on their third album and their first for their new label home Napalm Records.
The band is working with producer John Gray and plans on having the record ready for release this fall, a press release says.
Frontman Max Cavalera has checked in from the studio to give an update:
“It has always been some kind of killer magic whenever I play with my brother. We have a special connection that comes out through the music and the crowd reacts to it in an insane way,” says Max.
“I wanted the new album to be faster and thrashier with the concept of Old Babylon. As far as recording equipment, we use everything! We don’t rely too much on Pro Tools like other bands. All Igor’s tracks are live drums. The energy is all there and we play all the guitars and sing of top of it, so in a way, it’s like the old ways of recording.”
In a way.
Was there any pressure, though, heading into these sessions?
“There’s pressure but I also like the challenge,” Max admits. “I think it is the Cavalera Conspiracy’s most intense and fastest record yet. I am very proud of it.”
