Max Cavalera (of Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy fame) wears many hats, but maybe none as ambitious as the project recently described on Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato’s facebook as “dark.” The two were previously rumored to be writing an album together, but a recent interview with Cavalera has shed some more light on the project including potential members:
“It’s really in the beginning right now. Greg loves Nailbomb and he’s trying to get me to do a Nailbomb kind of project. He’s saying we can do something very similar to Nailbomb where the both of us sing, like me and Alex and what we had and it will be what me and Greg have. We’re gonna share the vocals and I think the drummer from Mars Volta might be the drummer and the bass player from Converge might be playing bass and we’re looking for a guitar player right now. But it’s gonna be like a project, not a band like Cavalera Conspiracy or Soulfly. It’s gonna be just a one-off album, something heavy to put out there. Something that me and Greg like to do. I had a great experience with him working on ‘Rise Of The Fallen’ and we became good friends and he started calling me about this ‘Nailbomb part 2’ idea and I couldn’t say no. I just thought it would be great and I’m really looking forward to it. I’d like to do as much music as possible, so he came with a new project for me.”
When asked about a release date, Cavalera added: “It´s not gonna come out until next year, because it´s gonna take some time to get all the people involved and all the writing”
No word on which Mars Volta drummer it is, as they are currently on their fifth percussionist within a decade. Also, it is not clear if the album would release on Roadrunner Records or a label one of the other bands is signed to.
