Yes, I know we don’t cover Sepultura or Soufly, but their singer/guitarist Max Cavalera just entered Fortress Studio in L.A. with producer Josh Wilbur, where he is recording an as-yet-untitled project with Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders, The Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. He writes:
“It’s going to be cool, we just don’t have a name yet, the name is a pain in the ass to find a name but the music is great. We have been working on this for two years!
Greg approached me kinda like how Alex [Newport] approached me to do Nailbomb in that he was really, really trying to get me to do this project. I told him already I was pretty busy doing Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy [and] I was not really looking for an extra thing, but he was pretty insistent and then I just gave up and was like ‘let’s fucking do this!’
It started with just me and Greg and then we got Dave Elitch – he’s an amazing drummer – and then Greg knew Troy and we asked him to be the bassist so it kind of became a supergroup all of a sudden. We jammed a couple of times and the last jam we did it sounded killer; the songs are really powerful real heavy. It’s hard to describe but I think the coolest thing about this project is that all three of us are going to sing on every song.”
