Eugene Hütz and Max Cavalera plan a meeting of the minds


Two of modern rock and metal’s most creative and ambititious frontmen, Eugene Hütz from Gogol Bordello and Max Cavalera from Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy/ex-Sepultura, have announced to Brazillian press that they are planning a future collaboration! In a O Globo magazine interview with Hütz, he stated “doing something as friends is easy, organizing something is much more difficult — and in any case, everyone is my friend!” when he was asked about his plans for future collaborations. He then went on to say that the Cavalera collaboration had already been discussed and is pretty much certain at this point.

Personally, this is an announcement coming from left-field, but I welcome it with my arms open as wide as they’ll stretch! It has been an extremely busy year for Cavalera – with his new Cavalera Conspiracy project with his brother Iggor having released their debut Inflikted in March and Soulfly releasing their most recent full-length Conquer only 3 months ago. With a project with Eugene Hütz to look forward to now as well, there is no reason to long for Cavalera to return to Sepultura like there might have been 5 or 10 years ago. Both Hütz and Cavalera could arguably be considered the most charasmatic and unique band leaders in their corner of music. And while Soulfly has been busy infusing their blend of groove metal and thrash with elements of world music, dub, and reggae, Gogol Bordello executed a brand of Punk rock that wears their Gypsy/East European heritage on their sleeve. When you consider that Soulfly even recorded with Gypsys in Serbia on two of their last 3 albums, it becomes clear that these guys are on the same page. This is going to be one to look forward to!

  1. Love Eugene Hutz… I mean, he’s gotta be one of the sexiest men on earth. Don’t know what it is about Russian men but they have such passion that American’s will never know. (Not to mention he was a gypsy… no wonder Madonna loves him! LOL)
