Metal All Stars? Yes please!


Yeah baby! I’m back here to tell you that I’ll be attending one of the ‘Metal All Stars’ gigs because it’s been my dream to hear a Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde on guitar and this seems like the next best thing as Phil and Zakk will perform some legendary Pantera tracks together.

I know I haven’t posted much lately but the possibility of hearing “Cemetary Gates” live has brought me back from retirement.

Also part of this gig: Max Cavalera, Joey Belladonna, Nick Menza, Udo, Ross The Boss and others…

It’s two months from now but I’m excited already. Poster, tour dates and press release after the jump.


New Max Cavalera guitar is just as ugly as his old ones

Max Cavalera has a thing for ugly guitars with just one humbucker. His signature Brazil guitar even made our Top 10 Ugliest Guitars.

He has a new guitar out, and guess what… It’s pretty fucking ugly.

You be the judge though, last time we talked about guitar looks, we got a lot of shit for it.


Max can write

Who knew? The man who can’t get a decent haircut, can actually write, and he’s writing an autobiography. Is this news or am I so out of touch with what’s going on in Cavaleraland? Honestly, I’m asking you because I didn’t know that before.

All bullshit aside, I imagine this book to be quite interesting, especially concerning Max’s split with Sepultura and his reconciliation with Iggggor. And who knows how often he’ll mention a comeback of the original Sepultura line-up? Well, not the original line-up, but the most well-known one.

So do you want to know some shit about the book? Check out the interview above.


Oh no he didn’t!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser has a thing or two to say about Max Cavalera’s evolution as a singer (or lack thereof). I guess being asked about him over and over again, even though he left the band in 1996, can get a brother irritated:

“Soulfly has had so many different formations, so you lose kind of a characteristic sound there. Of course, Max and his vocals is what it is. I mean, he’s been writing the same stuff over and over again. And in that sense I don’t think he has really evolved too much. When working with different musicians all the time it’s kind of hard to have a characteristic sound or try to do something original. And then with Cavalera Conspiracy, it’s weird to think that he can really work songs like that with just like a drummer there. So I don’t really see the partnership that they’re going. It’s just like a bunch of Max songs that have a different drummer. But, you know, it is what it is.

Read full interview here.

Oh snap! Ya done did it, son. You just done got Max Cavalera all mad now, ya feel me? Just wait till Max unleashes an all caps rage on yo ass in the press, son… Whaaat?

I have no idea why I’ve gone all street on you, nor do I know if that’s borderline racism (fingers crossed), but yeah, it’s a pretty direct thing to say. I guess playing a few Big Four gigs got Andreas some new-found balls, eh?

When asked about Andreas’ comments, Max Cavalera had no comment. He did utter some noise, but no one understood what he had to say.


Greg and Max are pissed off

We’ve covered Greg Puciato’s and Max Cavalera’s collaboration project before, and now, we’re gonna do it again. Why? Because we can and you can’t do anything about it.

Anywho, recently the band was demoing new songs, and Max had the following to say about it to Roadrunner.com:

“Everybody ask me, ‘Hey Max, are you gonna do another Nailbomb?’ and the answer is always No, because we killed Nailbomb on purpose. So when Greg approached me with an idea of a project, I said I’ll do it, but it has to be like Nailbomb. I’m gonna share the vocals with Greg. We’re gonna have a bunch of killer guest musicians, and it’ll be the closest thing to a Nailbomb experience. I promise you it is going to be heavy as fuck, angry as fuck, and aggressive as fuck. Me and Greg are pissed off and we’re coming your way!!!!”

Wow, heavy, angry and aggressive. All three as fuck. I am sort of looking forward to this, unlike Max’s three past albums. Hopefully he let’s Greg write some of the lyrics along with letting him sing. Then again, we’re talking about a guy who has “KILL POSERS” written on his Twitter profile picture, which is angry alright… For a 13 year-old. Don’t get me wrong, I like the guy as a musician (and especially his stage presence, just look at that clip), but maybe Max manages to get the worst of him. Seems to be his biggest skill nowadays.
