It’s been a while since we last heard about Max Cavalera and Greg Puciato’s Nailbomb-like project. And that’s understandable, since The Dillinger Escape Plan have been touring quite a bit and Cavalera has been working on Soulfly’s new album (which comes out tomorrow, March 13). However, it looks like their project is becoming an even cooler supergroup.
In an interview with Loud Magazine, Cavalera shared the following about his work with Puciato:
“Yeah, I’m doing the thing with Greg, like a Nailbomb kinda project. We worked on “Rise of the Fallen” (from Soulfly’s previous album Omen) and it really came out great. We became good friends and we did jams together. Out of the blue, Greg had this idea that I should do a Nailbomb Part II with him, so it was his idea. So he started calling me all the time and I’m like, ‘Oh God, stop calling, man, I’m too busy, I got Soulfly and Cavalera,’ (laughs). He would never let up and so I finally told him, ‘alright, let’s do it, you’re not gonna give up on it, so let’s do it’. We started jamming and it was cool, we wrote like 15 songs together and it turned out really cool. Then we got together with Dave (Elitch) from Mars Volta, the drummer, and we jammed in L.A. We got four songs done and I think we’re gonna get Nate (Newton) from Converge to play bass on the record, so that should come out later in the year. It should be pretty good.”
So obviously the highlight from this is that Converge bassist Nate Newton (also of Doomriders) and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch will likely be appearing on the Cavalera/Puciato album. Chances are that even more musicians could pop up on the album (since it’s supposedly in the same vein as Nailbomb), but Newton and Elitch’s involvement alone is pretty awesome.
You can read the rest of Cavalera’s interview with Loud, where he also recalls the time he puked on Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, at the magazine’s website.
