OK metalheads, you may need to sit down for a second.
Mastodon singer Troy Sanders, Converge bassist Nate Netwon, Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato, former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch and Max Fucking Cavalera, frontman of Soulfly, and more importantly, of Sepultura back when they were good, are making an album together. Via Consequence of Sound:
Cavalera discussed the project during a recent interview on Singapore radio.
“I think it’s gonna be a very original project. I don’t know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this. So it can be almost like a Transplants of metal. Transplants had three singers; this also has three singers, and it can be very, very great. I’m following, in a lot of ways, some of the same footsteps as Nailbomb [Max’s mid-1990s project with Alex Newport of Fudge Tunnel] in my approach to this project — a lot of do-it-yourself, punk-rock kind of feeling to the project. So the songs are written really quick — I don’t think too much about it. I like it more like that, so they are very raw. We are working on the [music] in December and then we’re hoping to get in the studio in January. The main thing we don’t have is a name.”
So much mosh in one place! This is going to be amazing.
