Joe Duplantier about the Cavalera Brothers new project
Mention "Max and Igor", and I'll tell you about 'Chaos AD' or "the rebirth of metal," or 'Arise,' or 'Troops of Doom'!!! That or something like, "Hell yeah, man!!!" After ten years, they're finally recording an album together again and are bringing back this very special energy that makes metal music so crazy back to life. I just want to say that I'm amazingly happy and honored to be part of this great project. On this album with the Cavaleras brothers, Mark Rizzo from Soulfly is playing lead guitars and I'm doing bass, while producer Logan Mader is building the sound. I don't really have the words to express what I'm feeling right now. I was coming here to Los Angeles to be part of something big and impressive, a "monument in history," if you will. And finally, I'm just jamming and recording some spontaneous, brutal, powerful straight-up music with down to earth and very cool people...and I think that's the best way to record a metal album. I understand now what the word "awesome" means...Joe Duplantier (Los Angeles, July 12th, 2007)
