Former SEPULTURA frontman Max Cavalera was recently asked by General Population With Marco Lesher what he thinks of the band’s current lineup.
“It doesn’t bother me. It is what it is.” he said. “At the end of the day, the fans know what the band was and what it is now, the difference. And I really don’t care. I’m not bitter. They do what they do; I do what I do. It’s been like that for a long time now. But you can’t touch the classics; those records that we did. It still goes, but it is what it is.
Max continued: “If you wanna really hear something that sounds close to what it was, you have to come see me and Igor play. That’s the only thing that is gonna be close to what it was, to that time.”
SEPULTURA split with frontman Max Cavalera in 1996, followed by Max’s brother and drummer Igor Cavalera ten years later. SEPULTURA are currently fronted by Derrick Green and features drummer Eloy Casagrande, guitarist Andreas Kisser and bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto Júnior. Max and Igor play together in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY.
The Cavalera brothers are set to perform SEPULTURA songs at next year’s edition of Maryland Deathfest. SEPULTURA current members will obviously not be involved.
