Max Cavalera is a most influential and innovative pioneers in the genre of metal music. Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on August 4, 1969, Cavalera faced much adversity in his homeland, but still managed to form (in 1984) one of the hardest hitting, and brutal bands ever- Sepultura. While in Sepultura, Cavalera recorded six ground breaking records. Sepultura toured the world many times and sold millions of CD's. Cavalera had beat the odds and became an international metal superstar. However, in 1996, Cavalera abruptly left Sepultura and quickly formed another band which he named Soulfly.
Soulfly recently released their 9th album, entitled "Savages." This is Cavalera at his all time best. "Savages" is a true metal masterpiece, it is uncompromising, relentless and contains some of the heaviest riffs that Cavalera has ever composed. In addition to Cavalera, Soulfly consists of guitar-shredder Marc Rizzo, ex-Static-X bassist- Tony Campos and Cavalera's son, Zyon Cavalera on drums.
