The brothers Max and Iggor Cavalera formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band Sepultura as teenagers together in 1983. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of darkness and extreme music with thrash classics such as Beneath the Remains, Arise and Chaos AD, while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre's horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996. A decade after Max left Sepultura and meanwhile released seven successful records with Soulfly, the two brothers got back together in 2006 to form Cavalera Conspiracy: A bold testament to the talent and power these two possess together. An invigorating mixture of speed and aggression, finest thrash power and the fiercest riffage!
It's time to get ready for one of the most heaviest and hotly anticipated metal records of 2017, when the mighty Cavalera Conspiracy will strike back this Fall: 'Psychosis' will be coming out on November 17th on Napalm Records! Now the Cavalera brothers have unleashed a first lyric video for the album opening track 'Insane', says Max Cavalera: "Let’s open the mosh pit and go insane!!!"
Check out the band's new video and go insane right HERE!
Coming as CD digipak, Digital Download and LP Gatefold editions, 'Psychosis' is now available for pre-order. Get your hands on it at: http://smarturl.it/Psychosis-NPR
