Even though a new supergroup made up of Max Cavalera of Soulfly fame, Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Troy Sanders of Mastodon and former The Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch doesn’t have a name, they are now in fact official. The band have signed to Soulfly’s home, Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
The boys entered the studio in early September to begin recording an album to be released by the label with Josh Wilbur producing. Wilbur has produced material for Lamb of God and Gojira in the past but according to an interview with Metalkaoz.com, Cavalera says the debut effort sounds like a mixture of Soulfly and Mastodon. The album is projected for release for sometime in the middle of 2014.
In the meantime, Max is also working on yet another side project with brother Iggor Cavalera, branded as a heavy metal White Stripes, of sorts.
