Max Cavalera Discusses New Songs From Upcoming Cavalera Conspiracy Album “Psychosis”

During a recent interview with Revolver, Max Cavalera has discussed the new Cavalera Conspiracy album “Psychosis.” That effort, which was produced by Arthur Rizk, is tentatively planned to hit stores in October via Napalm Records. You can read about some of the upcoming new songs below.

Cavalera on “Hellfire” (feat. Godflesh’s Justin K Broadrick):

“That’s one of my favorite new tracks right now, and Godflesh have been one of my favorite bands forever, from 1989’s Streetcleaner on. When [Broadrick] said he would be a guest on the record, I was like, ‘Oh my God! My mind is going to explode!'”

“[It’s] about the drones that they bomb people with. I did a lot of reading about drones for that and there’s a movie called ‘Eye in the Sky,’ so I use the name in the lyrics. I can’t wait to hear what Justin does with it. We purposely wrote it with drum machines so it sounds like a Godflesh song.”

Cavelara on “Judas Pariah,” which focuses on internet trolling:

“I was feeling really angry about different stuff. Even stuff like shit-talking on the Internet and all this bullshit that I had nothing to do with. I did a song called “Judas Pariah” and it’s pretty much about all those people. I just don’t understand it. It’s like the Palestinians and the Israelis. No one can get along and it’s like our war we don’t want to be in.

It’s fucked up, man. I always said music is a weapon, so I just thought, ‘Fuck it, man. I’m just gonna let it all out.’ Especially in front of all the shit-talking trolls. So I wrote something really brutal. And I’m not just saying, “Fuck you.” I’m talking about soul-stealing shit. The ending has a riff that sounds a little bit like Celtic Frost‘s “Procreation of the Wicked.” And Arthur put some keyboards on it so it has this classical sound that’s fucking huge, like To Mega Thereon on a Cavalera album. It’s pretty much a black-metal song.”

Cavalera on “Negative Fucks,” which focuses on Donald Trump, and “Terrorist Tactics” which deals with ISIS:

“We have a punk song that’s about the whole Donald Trump thing. There’s lines like, “Not my president, not my god, not my king.” It’s called “Negative Fucks.” It’s a name that Greg Puciato from Dillinger Escape Plan came up with as a possible name for our side band Killer Be Killed. I love that name. It’s so punk rock. We had this great riff, which sounded like Discharge meets Nails meets Napalm Death, right to the bone.

I’m singing about this propaganda hate machine. The chorus goes, “Negative fucks! Negative fucks!” And in the background I’m doing this voice that sounds like a demented psycho laughing. And then there’s “Terrorist Tactics,” which is all about the shit going on with ISIS. The whole extremist propaganda, where if you don’t convert to their kind of Islam they will kill you.”

Queensrÿche Premiere “Hellfire” Music Video

Queensrÿche have premiered a new video for their song “Hellfire.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Condition Hüman,” which is available now.

Todd La Torre said the following:

“‘Hellfire’ is a depiction primarily based on the tragic events surrounding the Malaysian airline flight MH17. Despite the storyline’s foundation, the lyrical and visual narrative transcends into other pertinent, global subject matters. Civil unrest, guerrilla warfare, media propaganda, and social inequalities are just some examples of the multifaceted issues marbled throughout ‘Hellfire’. A poignant illustration of an unfortunate yet timeless reality.”
