Max Cavalera has issued a statement regarding the progress of Cavalera Conspiracy’s new album due in the fall on Napalm Records. Working with his brother Iggor with producer John Gray on production, he describes the forthcoming release as the band’s “most and intense and fastest record yet.”

On working with his brother:
“It has always been some kind of killer magic whenever I play with my brother. We have a special connection that comes out through the music and the crowd reacts to it in an insane way.”

On the recording process:
“Pretty much I have to get into Cavalera Conspiracy mode. I wanted the new album to be faster and thrashier with the concept of Old Babylon. As far as recording equipment, we use everything! We don’t rely too much on Pro Tools like other bands. All Iggor’s tracks are live drums. The energy is all there and we play all the guitars and sing of top of it, so in a way, it’s like the old ways of recording.”

On feelings of pressure regarding the band’s third album:
“There’s pressure but I also like the challenge. I think it is the Cavalera Conspiracy’s most and intense and fastest record yet. I am very proud of it.”
