Max Cavalera is a busy guy between Killer Be Killed, Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy, but he's loading more onto his musical plate with a new death metal band called Go Ahead And Die!
The trio consists of Max, his son Igor Amadeus Cavalera and local Denver drummer Zach Coleman (Black Curse, Khemmis), and they've already signed to Nuclear Blast to put out their debut album.
While there's unfortunately no details on that record or any new music to show just yet, it's a pretty safe bet that any project involving the Cavaleras will be pretty awesome. Nuclear Blast also seem to think so, who had this to say about the upcoming record:
“For such a heavy, brutal, and pissed-off record; Go Ahead And Die will leave any metal fan with a smile on their face. With riffs the size of boulders and a genuine fuck off attitude that speaks about today’s horrors, this album will without a doubt leave a mark in metal and we are happy to be part of the journey.”
Max said of the new project:
“One of a kind father/son collaboration bringing the old school with a new attitude! Sick riffs and abrasive lyrics from Igor and brutal drumming from Zach Coleman (Black Curse, Khemmis) inspired me! Extreme times call for extreme music!”
While his son Igor echoed:
“We are beyond excited to sign with Nuclear Blast. They are definitely the right choice for this colossally heavy record. G.A.A.D. will deliver fast-paced, hate-fueled energy that hasn’t been heard in years.”
Drummer Zach Coleman elaborated on what kind of sound the band will put forward:
“I could not be more excited to be a part of G.A.A.D. and to have the album come out on Nuclear Blast! I feel like we were able to capture (extreme) aggression with the record. It’s a mix of old school (think ’89 era metal/punk) style and newer sounds that reflect what’s going on around us. Protest and Survive!”
When we interviewed Max about Killer Be Killed's recent sophomore LP Reluctant Hero, he said that his drive to keep making metal never dies:
"I kind of need to stay productive like oxygen. Metal and music is very important for my life. So it's not that I get burned out, it's actually the opposite - I really need it all the time. From now on into the future I'll go a bit slower though, I don't feel a hurry to put records out like that anymore. So this one will come out this year and then we'll just see what happens next year."
Yeah, so much for going slower!
Hopefully it won't be too long before we can get a taste of Go Ahead And Die!
