The next album from Cavalera Conspiracy is one step closer to gracing our ears. Previous news included the band signing to Nuclear Blast and Nate Newton of Converge stepping in on bass duty. Now we’ve gotten an update on the album’s progress from producer John Gray:
This is by far the fastest and heaviest record I have ever had the pleasure of working on with Max Cavalera. Max, Igor and Marc were on the same page musically from the moment they walked in the door, and recording this album was a very smooth process. I had never worked with Igor Cavalera before and I was very impressed with his ability to work out the arrangements with Max and get some extremely complex drum parts done live with hardly any re-takes necessary. Marc Rizzo, as always, was spot-on and a true guitar virtuoso. I love to work with Marc because he always pushes himself to perfection, but he is very down to earth and keeps things light when he’s under pressure. What can I say about Nate Newton- he killed it on the bass tracks with very little back and forth. I’m really impressed with his talent, and I look forward to meeting him someday.
Marc Rizzo and Nate Newton also offered comments on the album:
The new Cavalera Conspiracy record was amazing to record…definitely a brutal and fast third record!!!
It was a lot of fun to be a part of this record. For me it was a challenge to learn the songs sight unseen and record them. It was a pretty interesting look into the way Max writes songs and I am glad to have been a part of it.
It’s safe to say there’s a lot of hype around this next record, which we’ll hopefully be getting more updates on in the coming weeks. In addition to Cavalera Conspiracy, let’s not forget to look forward to more news from Killer Be Killed.
