SECOND ALBUM REUNITES BROTHERS AND SEPULTURA PRINCIPAL MEMBERS
MAX AND IGGOR CAVALERA
ALBUM SLATED FOR RELEASE IN MARCH 2011
Cavalera Conspiracy announced today the title of their second album, Blunt Force Trauma. 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.
The Brothers Cavalera co-founded Sepultura, the Brazilian metal band that redefined and established the genre outside of the US and Europe. After Max exited the band, there was a rift between himself and his brother, one that was eventually repaired through the redemptive power of music. Some time had passed and Max and Iggor were unable to resist the musical pull in their magnetic fields and their musical collaboration was renewed. The duo are back for round two with Cavalera Conspiracy.
Cavalera Conspiracy's lineup is filled out by guitarist Marc Rizzo, who plays with Max in Soulfly, and bassist Johnny Chow.
Blunt Force Trauma is due out in March via Roadrunner Records. The track listing is below:
3. Lynch Mob
4. Killing Inside
6. I Speak Hate
7 . Target
8. Genghis Khan
9. Burn Waco
11. Blunt Force Trauma
Cavalera Conspiracy appeared on the cover of Metal Edge in an homage to The Blues Brothers, and the album was one of the most spun platters on Sirius' Liquid Metal/Hard Attack channel that year. Inflikted was described as "gobsmackingly violent" and Outburn mused, "If only all family reunions could be this awesome!"
