The Age Of Metal conducted an interview with Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, ex-SEPULTURA) on August 2 at the 16th annual D-Low Memorial show in Tempe, Arizona. You can watch the chat below.
The “D-Low” show is held every year in memory of SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera‘s stepson, Dana Wells, who was killed in a car accident in 1996 (1999 article). It is one of SOULFLY‘s biggest shows of the year and draws fans from all over the United States. In 2004, SOULFLY filmed portions of its “The Song Remains Insane” DVD at the event.
SOULFLY‘s eighth album, “Enslaved”, sold 5,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 82 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “Omen”, opened with 6,000 units in June 2010 to land at No. 73.
“Enslaved” was released on March 13 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at TallCat Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and was produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris, the seasoned knob twiddler behind some of the most notable bands in metal today, such as SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, THE RED CHORD and more.
SOULFLY‘s video for the song “World Scum” was conceptualized by Max Cavalera and director Thomas Mignone (MUDVAYNE, SLIPKNOT, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, MORBID ANGEL) and produced through Mignone‘s production company Doom Incorporated.
SOULFLY‘s current lineup features drummer David Kinkade (BORKNAGAR, ARSIS, MALEVOLENT CREATION), Max and guitar dynamo Marc Rizzo, with STATIC-X‘s Tony Campos taking up the bass.
