Cavalera Conspiracy

cavalera_conspiracyCavalera Conspiracy is a metal band featuring members from Brazil, France, and the United States. Cavalera Conspiracy marked the reunion of the Cavalera brothers after 12 years separation and is the first time they have made music or shared a stage together since the infamous Sepultura break up on December 16th, 1996 in London.

The band initially formed in mid-2007 with Max Cavalera (Soulfly, ex-Sepultura) on vocals and rhythm guitar, Igor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) on drums, Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo and Joe Duplantier (Gojira) on bass. Originally, Max chose the name Inflikted for the project, but the name has been used before. As a result, he changed the name to Cavalera Conspiracy in order to avoid potential legal conflicts which would hold up the album release, and chose to use the name Inflikted for the band’s debut album.
