Cavalera / Puciato Project Now Including Troy Saunders
I looked everywhere to see if I could find the thread talking about this original project but couldn't find it so I am just adding a new one. This is looking like quite the eclectic group. Hopefully something good can come of this.
Brader Bo (a.k.a. Bo Skullbanger) of Singapore’s only metal radio show, "Vicious Volume", which airs on Ria 89.7FM, a station of MediaCorp., conducted an interview with Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SEPULTURA) before SOULFLY's October 20 performance at Malaysia's Rockaway festival. You can now watch the chat in four parts below.
On his as-yet-unnamed new project with Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), Dave Elitch (ex-MARS VOLTA) and Troy Sanders (MASTODON):
Max: "Troy [Sanders] from MASTODON just joined the band, too, so now we've got three singers for the project, which is also really killer. I'm really excited about that, too. I think it's gonna be a very original project. I don't know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this. So it can be almost like a TRANSPLANTS of metal. TRANSPLANTS had three singers; this also has three singers, and it can be very, very great. I'm following, in a lot of ways, some of the same footsteps as NAILMBOMB [Max's mid-1990s project with Alex Newport of FUDGE TUNNELin my approach to this project — a lot of do-it-yourself, punk-rock kind of feeling to the project. So the songs are written really quick — I don't think too much about it. I like it more like that, so they are very raw. We are working on the [music] in December and then we're hoping to get in the studio in January. The main thing we don't have is a name."
