Cavalera Conspiracy, the band featuring the legendary metal brothers Max and Igor Cavalera (Sepultura) and Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo are currently in the mixing stage of their third album and their first for their new label Napalm Records. The band is working with producer John Gray (Soulfly) and plans on having the record ready for release in Fall of 2014. Converge bassist Nate Newton makes his debut with the band.
Members of the band and producer John Gray took some time to give an update on the recording process:
"This is by far the fastest and heaviest record I have ever had the pleasure of working on with Max Cavalera. Max, Igor and Marc were on the same page musically from the moment they walked in the door, and recording this album was a very smooth process. I had never worked with Igor Cavalera before and I was very impressed with his ability to work out the arrangements with Max and get some extremely complex drum parts done live with hardly any re-takes necessary. Marc Rizzo, as always, was spot-on and a true guitar virtuoso. I love to work with Marc because he always pushes himself to perfection, but he is very down to earth and keeps things light when he's under pressure. What can I say about Nate Newton- he killed it on the bass tracks with very little back and forth. I'm really impressed with his talent, and I look forward to meeting him someday." -John Gray
"The new Cavalera Conspiracy record was amazing to record...definitely a brutal and fast third record!!! - Marc Rizzo
"It was a lot of fun to be a part of this record. For me it was a challenge to learn the songs sight unseen and record them. It was a pretty interesting look into the way Max write's songs and I am glad to have been a part of it." -Nate Newton
More updates and news on Cavalera Conspiracy's new album will be released in the coming weeks.
