You can’t keep a good man down. After a string of successful Soulfly shows in North America showcasing a bunch of new tracks from last year’s killer album, Ritual, Max Cavalera is back with his brother, Iggor to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of one of the great thrash albums of all time in Sepultura‘s, Beneath the Remains. Not only that album, but also 1991’s follow up, Arise, widely regarded as the greatest Sepultura album of all time and perhaps Max Cavalera‘s greatest achievement of his career.
We nabbed Max for a chat before the shows kick off next Sunday week in Fremantle, Western Australia. Max talks a bit of the history of the two albums as well some updates on Soulfly and Killer Be Killed, along with his appreciation of longtime guitarist, Marc Rizzo and the feeling he gets when he returns to his roots and plays these songs from his past.
