Cavalera Conspiracy – “Blunt Force Trauma” Releases March 29th, 2011! Some Metal Thoughts and Commentary…
CAVALERA CONSPIRACY – The legendary Cavalera brothers, Max and Iggor, are back with Cavalera Conspiracy! Releasing on March 29th, 2011, on RoadRunner Records is the sophomore Metal offering from Cavalera Conspiracy which is titled: Blunt Force Trauma. The special edition CD/DVD version of Blunt Force Trauma contains 14 new songs from Cavalera Conspiracy on CD which includes 3 bonus tracks. The DVD is a full-length concert: Live at Les Eurockeennes Festival, Belfort, France. A standard version of Blunt Force Trauma will also be released on March 29, 2011, containing just 11 new studio tracks, with no bonus tracks or DVD.
About a week or so ago, RoadRunner Records was offering a free mp3 dowload for the song Killing Inside, from Blunt Force Trauma. I’ve been signed up to the RoadRunner Records newsletter for a very long time now, so when I received word that this new Cavalera Conspiracy song was available for free download, well, Stone was all over it! These free mp3′s are available for just a couple of days, so acting fast is key. A Metal kudo’s to RoadRunner Records for always offering a free mp3, from their new releases, on a consistent basis!
Killing Inside has a Groove Metal meets Thrash sound with Max Cavalera letting loose some intense Hardcore/Death fusing with All-Extreme vocals. This song is hell bent on it’s pissed off and maddening lyrics, an all encompassing fictional trip through a psychopath’s demented agenda. I can’t say enough about this band’s rip and tear approach to Metal while listening to this new song… damn incredible musicians they are. Killing Inside pummels it’s way through my brain at 3:28 long and all I can say is: thank you Cavalera Conspiracy, may I please have more sirs?
Metal be thy name, it was a tremendous day when I had learned Max and Iggor had reunited to form Cavalera Conspiracy a few years back. As founding and former members of the highly influential and ultra legendary Sepultura, Max and Iggor Cavalera have continued on exactly where they left off in 1996… making amazing Metal together as brothers. I’ll always consider the Max Cavalera fronted Sepultura as my favorite era of this band.
The debut Cavalera Conspiracy album Inflikted was released back on March 25th, 2008 on RoadRunner Records. Was I ever wishing this to be just the beginning of a long line of Cavalera Conspiracy albums! Now, with Blunt Force Trauma set for release… my Metal wish has started to come true!
(Album cover for Cavalera Conspiracy – Inflikted)
The Death/Thrash combination of Cavalera Conspiracy is Metal candy to my ears. When I first listened to Inflikted back in 2008, I thought to myself: there is a God of Metal and his holiness has brought Max and Iggor back together again to make this astoundingly solid album of 100% pure Metal. The Hardcore vibe of fury that resonates from Inflikted slapped me straight in the face then and continues to do so now.
Not to take anything away from Marc Rizzo on lead guitar and Joe Duplantier on bass for this Inflikted album… both of these Metalhead musicians are substantially incredible at their Metal craft. Joe Duplantier is a founding member, guitarist and vocalist for Progressive/Death Tech Metal band - Gojira. Did I mention that “L” word for Joe Duplantier and Gojira? “L” is for legendary.
It’s no Metal secret that Marc Rizzo has played guitar alongside Max Cavalera with Soulfly, a Metal band that has as infectiously diverse a musical history as any band I’ve ever listened to. Max formed Soulfly back in 1997 after his departure from Sepultura. Marc is also a former lead guitarist for the Alt-Metal warriors known as Ill Niño, from 1998 to 2003. The current bass guitarist for Cavalera Conspiracy is Johny Chow, from the Heavy Hittin’ Fireball Ministry. With just two studio albums to their credit, this Cavalera Conspiracy family tree is fantastically impressive.
I am very much anticipating this new Cavalera Conspiracy album… March 29th is marked as a day of Metal on my calendar!
