Petbrick, the project featuring Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad), are streaming their new album, “Liminal,” in its entirety via Metal Injection. The effort will officially be released on September 23. Adams commented:
“The word liminal means: Occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold. This sums up making the record over the last two years during isolation and attempting to return to normal life. We were experiencing so many different feelings simultaneously, having so many conflicting thoughts and I was definitely fighting internally to make sense out of the happenings and what comes next. It also gives an insight into the sonic world held within; it exists at a point where different worlds collide.”
Petbrick, the project featuring Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad), have premiered a new song titled “Distorted Peace.” This track features Paula Rebbeledo (Rakta) and it will appear on the band’s new album “Liminal,” which is set to be released on September 23.
Petbrick, the project featuring Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad), have premiered a new song titled “Grind You Dull.” This track features Converge’s Jacob Bannon and it will appear on the band’s new album “Liminal,” which is set to be released on September 23.
“‘Grind You Dull‘ is a Petbrick take on a hardcore punk track – but instead of guitars we used a distorted electronic 909 kick to create a riff — and it slams! It is probably the most thrash moment on the album, proper face-melting territory. It was amazing to have Jake on board with this track, and to be invited on tour with Converge!”
“I met Jake many years ago, and I have always been a huge fan of his music and art. He and Nate [Newton] have been massively supportive of Petbrick since our first demo. It was an honor to have him on the track ‘Grind You Dull‘ off our new album, and of course we’re looking forward to touring with the almighty Converge – hopefully we will get to do it live with him on vocals!”
Petbrick, the project featuring Iggor Cavalera (ex-Sepultura) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Johnny Broke), have premiered a new video for their new song “Primer.” This track is from the band’s new album “Liminal,” which will be released on September 23. Adams commented:
“‘Primer‘ is a brutal smash to the face; a slow build lets rip with an unholy blast of thunderous drums and blasts of crushing distorted kick drums. The video for ‘Primer‘ is a visual feast of lo-fi glitch and rot, tapping into the initial dread, horror, and release of a journey inwards.”

“After a tour night of little to no sleep on an overnight flight, we arrived in London and went straight to Wayne’s studio to begin our sessions together, still on that jet-lag-induced, lethargic state, with no pre-thought ideas and a very diminished deadline. As soon as we began recording some ideas, Wayne quickly assembled the skeleton of what would become this track. Watching him creating and editing stuff that fast and with that quality just blew our minds. From that moment we fed on the certainty that something special was being concepted on that unique moment for us. Curious is the fact that Iggor came up with a double stick right there, using a hanger to unite them and record that drum ‘n’ bass hi-hat. This is dancing music, Deafbrick drum ‘n’ bass noise style!”
“This particular tune came from an amalgamation of quite a few strange percussive approaches from Iggor and Marian. Iggor built this excellent pair of drum sticks that was attached together with a coat hanger and a load of gaffer tape, so that he could play a weird 16-beat almost shuffled drum and bass pattern on the hi-hat with one hand. Marian played with his hands on the snare drum as an overdub, so you get a weird percussive element from the snare pattern, Then we dug deep into Douglas’ dub influences also The guitar hook almost has a cool eastern feel to it, so this track really was a mental smashing together of a lot of different, super creative approaches. I love this tune because of this, you can hear each person’s personality coexisting in a beautiful harmony.”

Petbrick’s Iggor Cavalera commented:
“We had so much fun doing the collab [at the Roadburn Festival] and there was a real chemistry between the five of us, so it seemed like a natural progression to actually get into a studio together and write a record.”
“It’s an honor for us to have taken part in this collaboration with Petbrick. When we had the opportunity, in the middle of a tour, to get together at Wayne‘s studio in London for two-and-a-half days to let the ideas flow, record things, and see what would happen, we couldn’t expect for a better result – a full album very rich on dynamics, sonic explorations, and unreached territories.
We were able to integrate ourselves in a way that doesn’t sound exactly like any of the bands alone, and this is very interesting in the sense of aesthetic and sonic freedom as it creates ramifications of the paths already taken, extending the steps of what has been and what is yet to come. To have the chance to co-create with Iggor and Wayne as musicians and producers – who are extremely kind, creative, open-minded guys with a long path of experience in music roads – was a very special process of sharing, hearing, and learning.
We also had Gordon from Terminal Cheesecake and Luminous Bodies and Matt from Casual Nun featured on two tracks, which was also amazing. We’re always very well received by these guys, bands and all these amazing people since our very first time in the UK, so it’s really nice to be extending this connection with this recording.”
The bands also discussed the project further over at The Quietus.
Petbrick, the project featuring Igor Cavalera (Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura, etc.) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Death Pedals, etc.), have premiered a new video for their new song “Coming.” This track features Cavalera‘s wife and Mixhell bandmate Laima Leyton and it will appear on the duo’s debut album “I” (out October 25).
“I’ve always had a fascination with art being made at places out of the European/USA market. From bands to one of my favorite movie directors Jose Mojica Marins aka Coffin Joe. When I was contacted by Dante Vescio, that was one of the first things that came to my mind. I love the idea of a video that can be as strong as the music, especially coming from a country like Brazil, which is going through so much turmoil. The photography beautifully contrasts with the disturbing backgrounds.”
“When I heard ‘Coming,’ my first reaction was to try and come up with a simple narrative that reinforced the song’s powerful and moody feminine presence. The image of a witch subduing a grotesque male character (The Pig) and finishing him off came to mind. I thought it was a good opportunity to give a character with ‘Naz’’ vibes a taste of his own medicine.
The fact that Petbrick‘s logo reads ‘Noise Against Nazi Scum’ was also pretty encouraging. I decided to shoot the whole thing in slow-motion because I thought it would enhance the song’s brutal elegance. I think there’s enough music videos with breakneck speed and editing to go around. It felt right to go the other way and shoot something that you can actually look at for a while, creating the sensory experience with the images, not just the speed of the cuts.”
Petbrick, the project featuring Igor Cavalera (Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura, etc.) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Death Pedals, etc.), have premiered a new song titled “Radiation Facial.” This track features Full Of Hell’s Dylan Walker and it will appear on the the duo’s debut album “I,” which is set to be released on October 25.
“Radiation Facial is combination of minds moving forward on full speed, first with the music, and then with the additional vocal madness of one of my favorite singers of this new generation, the amazing Dylan Walker…The video is a full dive into the mind of the director James Alec Hardy…a perfect combination of images that leaves lots of space for our imagination to fly, something that personally I believe is missing on a lot of music videos and movies.”
“Dylan is the best vocalist from any heavy act I’ve seen perform in the last few years. When I caught Full Of Hell at the Underworld in Camden last year, it blew my mind! So when Iggor said he had spoken to him and he was game to do some vocals for us I was so excited, and I think the result speaks for itself. It’s a total banger!
So slimy, so weird, and damn classy! I think James has found that perfect line between cult, weird and the abstract that feeds directly from his primary practice as a visual artist. It feels very original, very in tune with the music and really quite beautiful.”
Petbrick, the project featuring Igor Cavalera (Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura, etc.) and Wayne Adams (Big Lad, Death Pedals, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Horse.” This track is from the duo’s debut album “I,” which will be released on October 25 via Closed Casket Activities.
“We wanted to do something different than the other projects we were involved in. Making horrible noise was the first concept behind Petbrick.”
“I think we realized that we were both pretty much in tune with each others taste, both into a lot of weird electronic music, as well as some decent far out guitar stuff. For me personally I definitely pushed the electronics in a much harsher direction.”
