Recently, Cavalera Conspiracy announced that 2014 would be the year they would release a new album on their new label Napalm Records to finally follow Blunt Force Trauma. Converge's long-time bassist Nate Newton has confirmed that he will be playing on Cavalera Conspiracy's new opus. Johnny Chow, the group's previous bassist, seems out of the picture now. But fear not because Nate isn't leaving Converge.
Cavalera Conspiracy are returning with a new album next year. The thrash metal band signed a worldwide record deal with the Austrian label Napalm Records for the release of the follow-up to Blunt Force Trauma. The band revolving around the legendary brothers Max and Igor Cavalera is currently working on their still untitled third studio effort.
"Killing Inside", a brand new track from Cavalera Conspiracy (the project featuring former Sepultura members Max (guitar, vocals) and Igor Cavalera (drums), is available for free download at this location (e-mail sign-up required).
"Killing Inside" comes off the band's forthcoming album, entitled Blunt Force Trauma, which will be released on March 28 via Roadrunner Records. More details about Blunt Force Trauma were previously reported over here.
"Blunt Force Trauma", another brand-new song from Cavalera Conspiracy, is available for streaming at this location.
Cavalera Conspiracy will release their second album, entitled Blunt Force Trauma, in March 2011 via Roadrunner Records.
The band released Inflikted in 2008 to much critical and fan acclaim. The album was a momentous occasion in the heavy metal universe, as it reunited brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera for the first time since Max left Sepultura in 1996.

Brothers Massimiliano Antonio and Igor Graziano Cavalera are scheduled to return to their homeland of Brasil together to perform with their side project Cavalera Conspiracy at this year's Starts With You (SWU) Festival on October 11th. This performance will be the brothers first time appearing onstage together in Brasil since they toured the country around the release of Sepultura's Roots, just before the subsequent fracture of the band band 15 years ago. Get your tickets now. Cavalera Conspiracy will be warming up for the show with a performance at the Maquinaria Festival in Santiago, Chile on October 9th.
Cavalera Conspiracy are expected to release their forthcoming second album (the followup to 2008's debut Inflikted) at the start of 2011.
It seems that Soulfly bassist Bobby Burns has quit the band. In a recent Tweet, Burns writes: "To all the fans... Soulfly and I have decided to part ways. Stay tuned for my next projects already in the works."
A statement from the Cavalera camp is expected any time soon.
Burns was part of the band for seven years and appeared on four studio albums. He also sings and plays guitar and bass in a hip-hop/punk/metal band called Primer 55.
The Cavalera camp has indeed confirmed the split with bassist Bobby Burns, as announced yesterday. "Soulfly have indeed parted ways with bassist Bobby Burns. The split was completely amicable and there was no animosity on either side," a statement on the band's website reads.
"Cavalera Conspiracy has been deemed an "inappropriate" band to perform with Judas Priest on their Priest Feast 2008 tour dates in Australia and New Zealand, and have thusly been forced to cancel their appearance at the previously announced tour dates in the southern Pacific.
Although Cavalera Conspiracy (featuring Max and Iggor of the legendary Sepultura) had several amazing and successful dates with their brothers in Priest throughout Eastern Europe, apparently the band has been deemed too inflammatory to open for Priest in Australia and NZ..
So, with that said, this post is an apology to the fans in the Australia and New Zealand for the cancellations. The Cavalera brothers will be back soon (..hopefully with a more reasonably priced tour...)!"
Cavalera Conspiracy have posted two outtakes/b-side tracks from the recording sessions of the band's debut album "Inflikted" on their MySpace page. Check out the original track "In Conspiracy" and a cover of Possessed's "The Exorcist" at this location.
The new project, featuring Sepultura founding members Max (guitar, vocals) and Igor Cavalera (drums), alongside Joe Duplantier (bass), vocalist of French metallers Gojira, and Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo, will make its live debut tonight (Friday, May 30) at the Electric Weekend in Madrid, Spain.
Headbangers Blog covered the Cavalera Conspiracy in great depth in three video interview sessions (check them out here, here and here), and now you can watch the EXCLUSIVE video premiere for "Sanctuary".
"I'm excited about the "Sanctuary" video," Max says. "Apart from being the first video I'm in with my brother Iggor since the "Roots" video in 1996, "Sanctuary" is a cool video. It was filmed in France, where the Conspiracy Monster killed the camera men, crew and video director. That alone is worth watching."

The following was written in a promotional publication by Roadrunner Records:
"The wait is over. The time is now. Many said it would never happen, that Max and Iggor Cavalera, the Brazilian brothers and visionaries that formed the groundbreaking Sepultura would reunite to make music together again. Despite having spent 12 years apart, the inescapable fact remains: Max and Iggor share blood and an unparalleled sonic kinesis. Hence, the Cavalera Conspiracy was born. While the Cavalera Conspiracy and their debut "Inflikted" may seem like the closest we'll get to a Sepultura reunion, make no mistake. The Cavalera Conspiracy is its own maniacal, untameable beast with its own set of rules.
