Announcing the Max & Igor Cavalera RETURN TO ROOTS tour - celebrating the 20th anniversary of the legendary album Roots - to be played in its entirety each night! The North American tour, which kicks off in Las Vegas on September 12, will feature direct support on select dates from The Black Dahlia Murder and Combichrist, with additional support from Allegaeon, All Hail The Yeti and Oni.
Max & Igor Cavalera will perform their set with their Cavalera Conspiracy brothers, guitarist Marc Rizzo and bassist Johny Chow.
Tickets are on-sale beginning today and can be purchased via each individual venue. Visit your local RETURN TO ROOTS tour venue's website for more information, or check back to www.maxandiggorreturntoroots.com for updated ticket links as they become available.
In addition, very special Meet & Greet passes can be purchased at Max & Igor Cavalera's merch booth each night. Fans will be given the opportunity to take a photo with Max & Igor, and they will each sign a Roots CD, cassette or vinyl. This applies to only the Roots album and one autograph and one photo will be permitted per person. Don't miss this unique opportunity to have your Roots album signed by the men behind the music.
"Metalheads! It's time," declares Max Cavalera. "20 years ago, we released the Roots album and changed the face of metal forever. Now, we're returning to "the roots" to show everybody the magic and inspiration of the Roots live experience! You cannot miss this RETURN TO ROOTS 2016!"
Iggor Cavalera adds, "I am very proud to play Roots again, to reaffirm that after 20 years, it still moves people! We hit the stage again with Roots to destroy everywhere we pass by!"
Max & Igor Cavalera are the original founding members of influential RIAA Gold-Certified Brazilian heavy metal legends Sepultura, and specifically the team behind the band's early albums, including seminal releases Arise, Chaos A.D. and Roots. Since the band's formation over 30 years ago, the Cavalera brothers have each seen unparalleled successes in the music industry. Max's more recent work with Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy (also featuring Igor) and Killer Be Killed, in addition to Igor's project MIXHELL, proves the lasting power of the Cavalera legacy.
Later this year, Warner Music will release a special vinyl edition of Roots, in addition to a CD/vinyl box set of classic Sepultura records, with more surprises in store. Stay tuned for a full announcement on the new editions, coming soon.

Chilean Groove / Thrash Metallers Lefutray will embark on its first European tour in July. The 30-date "Sounds Kill Europe Tour" will see the band playing in Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic, as well as 18 confirmed dates in Russia. There are still a few dates available. Those interested in booking the band should get in touch with Ferroda Booking at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The band is touring in support of 2015 SickBangers release Oath. Stream "Oath" in its entirety at https://lefutray.bandcamp.com/album/oath.
Greek groove / metal four-piece Planet of Zeus return to the UK in support of their spectacular new album ‘Loyal to the Pack’. Last seen on these shores supporting the mighty Clutch, PoZ are excited to be heading back for a fistful of headline dates.
At a time in which individualism seems to be the ultimate solution for some ‘Loyal to the Pack’, is an ode to the benefits of teamwork. Being well known for their never ending signature heavy riffs, gritty vocals and unmistakeable grooves, the band decided to “shuffle their deck of cards” and push the boundaries of their musical direction, encompassing melody, clean, but heartrending vocals, a newly found sense of dynamics in amongst their colossal trademark riffs. Serving to a establish a signature sound for Planet of Zeus, a sound that takes the listener on a journey throughout the history of heavy music; from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Mastodon, The Allman Brothers Band to Queens of the Stone Age and AC/DC to Clutch.
Right now, Planet of Zeus are the biggest rock band in Greece, consistently selling out every venue they play. Their annual Athens headlining show attracted more than 3.000 people and set a record of attendance in Greece's underground rock scene. Their raw, sincere and constantly evolving live performances have secured them a loyal and hardcore underground following throughout the world. After 5 consecutive European tours, including a slot on Metal Hammer’s ‘Lords Of The Riff II’ UK tour and several high profile festivals (notably a triumphant appearance at Bloodstock Open Air), Planet of Zeus finished 2015 as main support for Clutch's 2015 Psychic Warfare European Tour.
Set to unleash their upcoming EP 'Mouichido' on May 27th, Vancouver, BC's Without Mercy will be hitting the road following its release for a cross Canada tour in support of it. Their forthcoming EP 'Mouichido' is a rebirth for the band as it's a re-release of re-recorded material from their 2014 EP 'Reborn'. 'Mouichido', the Japanese word for “Repeat” or “to do one more time” is perfectly titled for the EP to signify its re-release of previously recorded versions that now feature new vocalist Alex Friis and bass tracks recorded by Tristan Martin plus live performance being done by Ryan Loewen along with a guest appearance by vocalist Mark Hunter of Chimaira on track 'In Waves'.
The band has released two videos in support of the EP 'Burn' and, both can be viewed at the following links below. Album pre-order at the following link here.

Pennsylvania's supernatural riffers Crobot are heading back to Europe this summer to mesmerise fans with their dirty groove rock.
Frontman Brandon Yeagley states:
'We can't think of a better way to start the summer than with a mini European / UK tour! We're excited to take the new tunes across the pond and give our international fans an early look of what's to come.'
Crobot are due to release the follow up to their Nuclear Blast debut 'Something Supernatural' later this year. More details to be announced soon!
European dates as follows, tickets on sale now via links below:
Support for each headline show will be from local bands.
Despite the chilly night outside, who would have thought that tonight would have been perhaps the strongest concert the Camden Underworld has seen for some time. This was the last date on the UK part of the "King" tour for Fleshgod Apocalypse and suffice to say they played the role of the 'King' tonight. For such a big band, a small venue did not hold them back from unleashing carnage, sure the 500 capacity venue was jam-packed, sure moshpits and stage diving happened for most of the night, sure Xerath and Hades Lab supported FA extremely well, but all in all this night belonged to one band.... Fleshgod Apocalypse. HAIL TO THE KING OF CLASSICAL DEATH METAL.
The horde from Perugia now take their Easter break before beginning their Russia, Estonia and Latvia tour. Then comes their festival shows, then as Tommaso indicated in our interview with him (click here), there may well be another America tour at the back end of 2016. But let's just recap last night shall we?
Having been on the scene for quite some time, dealing with various line-up changes and quiet periods of little activity, Hades Lab did their utmost to kick tonight off with a bang. Despite all of their attempts to ignite a crowd who were seemingly still chilled out from the cold outside, Hades Lab just could not get out of 3rd gear quick enough to leave a lasting impact. Although they performed some rather tight Black / Death / Grind Metal, the overall feeling was that they felt slightly uneasy performing, sure the crowd wasn't completely plenty and their mood was one of being expressionless, but that shouldn't hamper a band's performance right?
There was some glimmer of hope though as some songs did manage to get a response from the crowd, namely some ad-hoc headbanging but with some to most gigs, most people just hang around for the headliner which some would argue is disrespectful to those supporting, but anyway.... the fact that Hades Lab had the honesty (if you can call it that) to admit that their new song might not be perfect, could suggest a level of uncertainty resided within the band - if uncertain why try playing it at such a top notch gig, why not save it for a lesser riskier gig?
Again the goblins magic was at work because their playing at times was not in sync, that is they were slightly out of time with each other albeit the first which ironically was tight and played to perfection. Overall Hades Lab lacked that killer instinct, that notion that a band can whip out song after song like an endless machine gun firing away with no signs of slowing down or stopping.
Xerath bring their own brand of Orchestral Metal (with added doses of Groove Metal) to the fore, soon the crowd were into party mood as the band blasted them with a wall of sound (although Fleshgod would later on have the final say), initiating fans to clamber on stage by means of crowdsurfing and stage diving; some were so close to going wrong. Xerath here proved that they are no means finished, with their impending 10th year anniversary just around the corner.
As time flew by, some thought that Xerath deserved a longer set but in all truth the set flew by. Having been buzzing around the London metal scene, they were no stranger to big occasions having already played Bloodstock. Of course Xerath knew how to pull tonight's crowd up as they sussed out what this crowd needed, something to headbang endlessly to!
Cue the crowdsurfing and stage diving, during this performance there were at least 4, maybe 5 times were two people stage dived and whilst the moshpit opened up - some thought it wasn't small enough already haha (some said this), Xerath dealt the deeds through their infectiously groovy sermons of sci-fi faculty.
If this was a preview of what Xerath are going to unleash in shows to come, then they surely deserve greater appreciation and recognition than at present, because to tour and support one of Italy's finest and arguably successful metal exports (and to survive it) takes a lot of oomph and gusto. Xerath are underrated, after tonight they will have shed off that completely. Simply sensational.
HAIL TO THE KING.
HAIL THE KINGS OF 'CLASSICAL DEATH METAL'.
Check out below two videos we filmed:- "The Violent" in all of it's full glory and "The Fool" in part.
Apologies for some shaky camera moments, the moshpits and crowdsurfing was that extreme.
Tommaso bringing the Italian Renaissance to London.
We would love to know if Tommaso was actually drinking red wine in that photo, sure Fleshgod Apocalypse have released their own branded wine to promote the new album "King" (you can buy it online at their store - linked at the bottom of the page), but by bringing the Italian Renaissance visage to the fore meant only one thing. The purveyors of 'Classical Death Metal' were primed, poised and ready to unleash what could arguably be their best performance on British soil.
The videos we posted don't deal justice for their entire performance, sure it gives an idea but only let's say a third of it. Opening up with a selection of tracks from the new album "King", then whipping in the very first track from their very first album "Oracles" which is 'In Honour Of Reason' and closing up their set with the rather romantic number 'The Forsaking' (taken from their album "Agony"), Fleshgod Apocalypse are destined to become the new face of Italian music, let alone metal.
Backed by their honourable live musician and friend, Veronica Bordacchini, her soprano vocals injected the dramatics expected from a truly operatic, orchestral and theatrical performance. Make no mistake about it, the Italians of the Renaissance period would certainly look down at this band and nod with extreme approval. Hell this performance was equally as strong as their Bloodstock performance, meaning that they not only are consistent but do a f*cking good job of keeping their musical vision in sight without deviating down the wrong path.
Inciting the crowd at every moments chance, they know what it takes to deliver a stellar performance and then some, more importantly was the fact that they once again created an atmosphere that mimicked the same atmosphere one would experience at a ballet or theatrical play
Simply put Fleshgod Apocalypse are like the Leonardo Da Vinci of the art world, both dabbled in various areas - the former in Symphonic Metal, Death Metal and classical music, the latter in music history, inventions, etc. However attention cannot be deterred from the eccentricity of their stage uniforms, unique and perfected to detail, the quintet adorn themselves in uniform drawn upon from the Italian Renaissance period. Additionally Veronica does the same but also holds a caduceus of which in Roman mythology belongs to the god Mercury; the caduceus was uniquely used as a form of signature by the Italian Renaissance artist Jacopo de' Barbari.
Referring back the gig (or concert if you wish), it was clear that Fleshgod Apocalypse had left a lasting impression on those attending, rampaging on at the very last songs before being subject to the closing song 'The Forsaking' and an explosion of confetti being sprayed across the stage, band and crowd - what a majestic finale and what a way to end the night.
Now having done Bloodstock, the UK numerous times and travelled across the world, it would really be ace to see them at an edition of the Eurovision Song Contest - shame it wasn't this year as it would be 10 years since Lordi won it, so if they can enter and win then why can't Fleshgod Apocalypse? Fleshgod Apocalypse are 10 years old next year, so this would be a great party to devise and attend.
Hail to the King.

Sylosis have unveiled a brand new track titled 'Different Masks On The Same Face'.
The song is the first new material since 2015's acclaimed album 'Dormant Heart' it's also the first recording to feature new drummer Ali Richardson and it sounds intense, listen below:
Comments vocalist and guitarist Josh Middleton:
"The track was sort of leftover from the Dormant Heart writing period. It's a little bit different for us and isn't necessarily a new direction we're heading in by any means. We figured instead of that track going to waste that we would release it as a kind of one-off single. For me it's one of the heaviest songs we've done. It's got a sort of punky black metal vibe to it. Really dark and aggressive sounding. It's really straight to the point and ended up being the shortest song we've ever released but it's still a riff fest. The title of the track came from watching hours of David Icke lectures last summer!"
The UK will soon be treated to an onslaught of heavy metal technical prowess as two of the genre's finest bands; Sylosis and Decapitated embark on a co-headline tour of blasting drum beats, complex bass lines, shredding riffs and drilling death metal vocals.
Widely hailed as “One of the UK’s finest modern metal bands” Reading’s Sylosis released their fourth album “Dormant Heart” via Nuclear Blast back in January 2015, which was widely applauded for meshing fast-paced thrash and death metal sounds with a more doom-driven sludge creating melodic metal songs that garnered them an opening spot on an arena tour with Lamb Of God and Megadeth and a packed out crowd at Download Festival that summer. Sylosis frontman Josh Middleton comments on the upcoming tour:
"We're extremely excited about this tour. It's great to finally be playing a full length set for our very patient UK fans! With this package I think it's really worth the wait. We've been huge Decapitated fans since the time Nihility came out so just getting to watch them every night is going to be awesome.”

Location: Southend, Essex
Date: 18th July 2013
What a night this was what with a whole of Essex bands playing including Killing Jimmy who were unveiling their new single and amongst the whole chaos created that night, coming from Croydon were Metalcore mob Break The Boundaries; their band name did not sum up the night as they certainly broke the amps. Whilst the crowd assembled in no orderly fashion, tuning up their instruments was the first band of the evening, Southend's Groove / Metalcore merchants Cast Asunder.
By Rhys Stevenson
< Spencer Lewis' beat-boxing impression did not go according to plan.
First up is Cast Asunder, now whilst I do not know who this band are they certainly got the crowd woken up out of their pathetic trance-like state. What pursued next was a tuned-down version of Lamb Of God, that irate sense of Metalcore smothering the room and the groove elements finishing off the crowd as they sort of moshed and danced at the same time, but whilst that happened Cast Asunder certainly delivered a well received performance, even if the music itself is nothing new they certainly seem to be heading in the right direction. Given they have only been going a year, they certainly seemed to have the potential to make that year count, and so they did. Sadly no sooner did they start did they finish their set and disembark the stage for the second act of the evening to see if they could out-do Cast Asunder.
This is what happens when biting the microphone >
Not exactly the most convincing band of the night, here Dishonor the so called 'Metallic Hardcore' band from Southend walked the walk, but failed to talk the talk. Given credit they gave a reasonable performance but extremely fell short of one's expectations, it seems as if these sorts of bands try to play Hardcore and act hardcore without actually realizing Hardcore stemmed from punk, so whilst the hardcore dancing continued and a couple of beers got spilled (the mess was unbeerable), Dishonor did their utmost attempt at delivering a performance that would make their fans proud, I am sure it did but for me, nope they certainly lacked luster tonight and lacked even more oomph to even attempt to convince oneself of their decency tonight, it simply was non-existent.
< "Fart after eating curry they said, you won't feel pain they said"
Clambering up on top of the stage to save the day was Croydon's very own Metalcore armada Break The Boundaries and as the lads got the crowd's focus back and excited them to such a level it made some punters weep at how this lot tonight wiped the floor with Dishonor. Break The Boundaries delivered a scintillating performance and explosion of music that could be compared to the same force experienced standing behind a taking off Boeing 747 at Gatwick Airport, you could say Break The Boundaries earned their wings tonight as a potential band to storm the UK with extreme force. Carefully orchestrated and their stage presence was sublime, there was hardly anything to fault this lot by tonight as they had simply proved their worth as a band to watch, and watch we will.
Mark apparently had neck problems >
After all the metallic metal and hard hardcore hype of tonight, it was time to tune things down so many notches that you could consider the headlining act as more of an appetizer than an actual dessert, not to imply they are edible; that's cannibalism. Pow, delivering their funked up style of Pop Rock / aggressive music is Basildon's Killing Jimmy; Basildon indeed - finally something to cheer about. Getting down to business, the band's performance tonight was perhaps their best one to date, not only did they unveil a new single which in itself is a promising sign that their upcoming release is going to be an absolute belter, but also the band seemed to have notched up their performance a bit as to erase all their past performances and instate a new visage and musical element to their catchy music and beautiful lyrics. Killing Jimmy did not fail to disappoint tonight and nor did the crowd fail them, there is hope for Basildon yet.
