Brothers in metal: Max and Iggor Cavalera pick their favorite bands of brothers

Posted by on November 3, 2017

In just two weeks, Cavalera Conspiracy will be releasing their fourth studio album, Psychosis, marking the band’s tenth year as a project. Of course Max Cavalera and his brother Iggor may be best known for Sepultura, the band they formed as teenagers back in 1984. With the release of Psychosis imminent, we thought it’d be fun to see if the brothers Cavalera were inspired by other bands featuring brothers, and each named their top five bands that have at least one relative playing in them. 

Psychosis will be released on November 17th on Napalm Records, and can be preordered here.





1) Dimebag and Vinnie, Pantera

3) Angus and Malcolm Young, AC/DC
