Webzine dedicated to the heaviest music around
Igor Cavalera is one of the most influental and innovative drummers when extreme music is in question. As a founding member of the biggest Brazilian metal act, Sepultura, Igor had rewritten the rulebook of extreme drumming on many ocasions. His classic thrash/death approach combined with various samba, latino and tribal experimentation reminds us that metal music shouldn’t be as sterile as it is nowadays. I was expecting Max Cavalera, his brother to show up as well but he wasn’t able to. However, the interview went just fine with a little bit of improvisation on the spot. In a 20 minute talk, Igor discussed Sepultura’s adventure during the Yugoslav Civil War, his influences, Phil „Philthy Animal“ Taylor, Lemmy, dictatorship years in Brazil, Cold War, Arise and Territory videos, Sepultura’s meeting with the Xavantes tribe and much more!
