Max Cavalera To Release “Fully Revised And Updated” Version Of “My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond”

Max Cavalera will be releasing a “fully revised and updated” version of his autobiography, “My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond,” on July 26 via Jawbone Press. Pre-orders can be found on Amazon.

Here’s a description of the book:

“Max Cavalera has an extraordinary story to tell, and My Bloody Roots is an autobiography like no other. Much more than just another tale of rock’n’roll debauchery, it’s a story of heartbreak and loss—and, ultimately, triumph. In it, Cavalera offers an unflinching account of life growing up in hardship in Brazil—a country not previously known for heavy metal—and the multi-million- selling success, against all odds, of the band he founded with his brother, Iggor: Sepultura.

Then, for the first time, he reveals the full story behind his split with the band—after which he did not speak to his brother for years—and the formation of his Soulfly, one of the most critically and commercially successful metal bands of recent decades. He also goes into unflinching detail on the devastating impact of the deaths of his father, stepson, and grandson; his struggles with drugs and alcohol; his eventual reunion with Iggor in Cavalera Conspiracy; and more.

This revised and updated edition continues to trace Max’s career to the present day, covering the formation of his new band Go Ahead And Die as well as the supergroup Killer Be Killed. It also includes a foreword by Dave Grohl and a brand new afterword by Randy Blythe, making it truly essential reading for all fans of metal.”

Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser Leaves European Tour Due To “Family Emergency”

Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande Undergoes Surgery For Kidney Infection

Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande recently underwent emergency surgery for a kidney infection. This news comes shortly after the drummer underwent surgery for a broken leg.

Casagrande commented:

“Yesterday I was in a physical therapy session and I had a sudden pain in my abdomen. I had to rush to the hospital. I was diagnosed with a kidney infection (pyelonephritis) due to a stone that blocked the Ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder). I had to go into an emergency surgery to have a ‘double J’ inserted between the bladder and kidney to unclog the canal. The calculus is still there, but it is necessary to deflate the kidney first and then resolve the stone issue.

More than a special thanks to @zecabaldocchifisio who took me to the hospital while I was screaming in pain. Thanks to my wife @garciaariane_ who is with me every second, love you Peca. Thank you doctor @dr.gustavo_urologia who promptly volunteered to do the surgery. I greatly appreciate the assistance of @dr.marcosviniciuscredidio and @draerikasimplicio

I’m already at home to continue with the physiotherapy for my leg. I’m fighting to be back as soon as possible. I ask for your support.”

Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande Shares New Update After Undergoing Surgery For Broken Leg

As previously reported, Sepultura’s Eloy Casagrande was recently forced to miss several shows on the band’s North American tour after breaking his leg. Now, the drummer has shared a new update after undergoing surgery for the injury:

“I’m writing here to let you know that I just had a surgery. It was a success! I can’t thank you enough for the support and all the messages you guys sent wishing me a speedy recovery. You all give me the courage to continue. I’ll be back! Very Soon!!! Thank you so much, @dr.marcosviniciuscredidio !!!”

Former Sepultura Members Max & Iggor Cavalera Recruit Soulfly & Possessed Members For Upcoming “Beneath The Remains” & “Arise” Tour

Ex-Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera and drummer Iggor Cavalera have revealed that Soulfly bassist Mike Leon and Possessed guitarist Daniel Gonzalez will be joining them on their upcoming U.S. tour. That trek will find them performing songs from Sepultura’s “Beneath The Remains” and “Arise.“

The group commented:

Max Cavalera:

“Beneath The Remains/Arise tour is coming! Introducing on bass guitar, thrashing and blasting bass beast Mike Leon (Soulfly) and on lead guitar, state of the art, death/thrash expert, Daniel Gonzalez (Possessed/Gruesome). We’re gonna take these songs to the Metal world in the most brutal way ever! Under a pale gray sky, we shall Arise.”

Iggor Cavalera:

“We can only count with the illest players to step on stage with me and Max to play Beneath/Arise. So getting Dan Gonzalez from Possessed/Gruesome and Mike Leon from Soulfly was an amazing choice!… Can’t wait to hit the road!”

Mike Leon:

“I am super excited to be a part of the revival of these classic albums with the brothers that created them, it is a great honor! These shows are gonna CRUSH, and I’m sure that we are gonna deliver these songs better than they have ever been played before to everyone who joins us! See you on the road!”

Daniel Gonzalez:

“It would be an understatement to say that I am incredibly stoked and honored to be able to play with Max and Iggor, and the fact that we’ll be playing material from Beneath The Remains and Arise is beyond surreal to me since I grew up worshiping those albums. Max and Iggor helped change the standards of extreme Metal and those albums are still living proof of that. It’s insane to me as a fan and as a musician to be able to play these songs live, and I can’t wait to do them justice!!!”
