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.”

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!!!”

“With our new studio album ‘Wake Up Dead‘ dropping April 8th, we wanted to share another appetizer from the record with this new jam ‘War Soup‘. Its groovy, gritty and is the first Incite song ever to feature the vocals of both Richie and Max Cavalera – a historical gathering of heavy metal generations. The song deals with having the courage to standing up to bullies, and fighting back.”
