Max & Igor Cavalera, Joe Duplantier & Marc Rizzo aka Cavalera Conspiracy
Cavalera Conspiracy

The press had a field day with the triumphant reunion of long separated brothers (and former bandmates) Max & Igor Cavalera in Cavalera Conspiracy, their new project featuring Joe Duplantier of Gojira and Marc Rizzo of Soulfly. It's perfectly understandishable: Sepultura post-Max (with the possible exception of Dante XXI) & Soulfly never quite lived up to the previous greatness of Sepultura, but CC seems to be their bid to take back that legacy.

A big step in that direction is their return to the stage, which has been announced in the form of a few select East Coast dates (so far) with The Dillinger Escape Plan (yay!), Throwdown (meh!), Bury Your Dead (BOOOO!), and Incite. NYC gets two nights in a row at The Fillmore East @ Irving Plaza, July 19th and July 20th. Ticket info forthcoming.

Max Cavalera has also announced that a new Soulfly album called Conquer is on the way. It's scheduled to hit the streets on July 29th.

Igor Cavalera says he "is not interested" in a Sepultura reunion.

Sepultura, or what's left of 'em anyway, are working on a new album based on Anthony Burgess's classic novel "A Clockwork Orange".

Although Sepultura with that dreadlocked dude who sounds just like Max is not the same, they were awesome at Irving on the Dante tour, and played everything you would want to hear.

Hopefully Cavalera Conspiracy will play some sick Sepultura shit and not just heavy up the Roots Bloody Roots.

Dante XXI was actually...pretty good. This CC video rules....I'm digging the photo crew decimation!

Mark Rizzo is playing a show with his own band at Fat Baby tonight. Best I can guess from the myspace page it's a cross of metal and flamenco.
