Posted in Downloads with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Iggor Cavalera  and Laima Leyton have a very busy life even when he’s not out on the road with his brother Max in the Cavalera Conspiracy. Ever since he left Sepultura in 2006, he and his wife have been working as the brilliantly creative Brazillian electro-duo MIXHELL, touring the world and gaining much praise within underground beat circles for their MPC/turntable/drum-driven beat heavy ruckus. Oh yeah, and they’ve got FIVE young children (who just so happen to operate MIXHELL’s blog – cute!). It’s a very hard task to make a serious leap from the metal community to the djing world, but with some good friendships (such as their association’s with James Murphy or Justice) and some awesome music, anything can happen. …Even while raising a family.

Last week, our favorite overseas electronic connection posted a superb mix that MIXHELL completed for Mishka‘s Keep Watch! series, and it deserves a mention here. Just listen to the opening Metallica “For Whom The Bells Tolls” Intro! How are these guys NOT playing sold out shows in big American clubs? They need to get on a good tour sometime soon, because something tells me that if American electro/dance fans got wind of MIXHELL, they’d storm the scene.

Exclusive Video Bootleg: Cavalera Conspiracy live at Eurockeennes 2008 in France pro-shot footage surfaces online

Posted in Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , on Wednesday, February 4, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Just this week a beautifully shot, professionally edited video of Cavalera Conspiracy‘s crowd-pleasing performance on July 5, 2008 at Eurockeenes in Belfort, France surfaced online via an unnamed source. Today, we are proud to provide you all with an exclusive premiere of this awesome playlist of songs, both old and new, as it first appeared on French public television this summer. The setlist is jam-packed with some of the best songs from Sepultura’s back catalog, with nearly every album from Max and Iggor’s career together receiving some kind of attention. These songs are executed with a ferocity and precision that is definitely unmatched since 1996 – maybe I’m wrong, but I’ve never seen the Derrick Green-fronted Sepultura ever crank out an “Arise/DEC” medley that could match this. However, it seems that Max and Iggor sound even best together on the stuff they have recently written, such as with “Must Kill” near the end of the set. If you missed seeing them live together this summer, enjoy; this is Sepultura!

Sunday Metal Video: Sepultura, “Arise (Live in Barcelona, 1991)”

Posted in Sunday Metalhead Minute with tags , , , , , on Monday, January 19, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Sepultura, is releasing their next album A-Lex this week (their first without a contribution from EITHER Cavalera brother, who have now rejoined together in the band Cavalera Conspiracy). Although Sepultura 2.0 has undeniably made an exceptionally good album, Sepultura with the Cavalera brothers was untouchable. In fact, I would confidently stand behind the statement that 1989-1996 era Sepultura provided the greatest output of any metal band of all-time. Today, we take a look back at the band to their peak to celebrate this unbelievable, visionary band.. this is their classic “Arise” taken from Sepultura’s original VHS release, Under Siege.

Eugene Hütz and Max Cavalera plan a meeting of the minds

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , , , on Thursday, October 9, 2008 by Ryan Buege

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!
