Soulfly @ Blender Theater at Gramercy (11/14/2008)

In just about four months time, the Metal maniacs of the Big Apple would get another appearance of one of their favorite performers, the one and only Max Cavalera. The musician has been a busy man with new Soulfly material and the project with brother Igor Cavalera in Cavalera Conspiracy, but this report is about Soulfly as we reported on the CC project elsewhere in these pages. The show was at Blender Theater this time around and found some cool openers along for the ride. We had young upstarts Incite, and Oklahoma’s Bleed The Sky and Devastation.  Talk about getting more bang for your buck.  A large part of the night was covered in words and images so scroll past the logo to see it all.

It was only a few months ago that guitarist/singer Max Cavalera had graced the New York City Metal faithful with an appearance in the “side-project” band known as Cavalera Conspiracy. The appearance was nothing less than a momentous occasion for all who attended either one or two of the area dates and the reason behind this was mainly because it was also the reunion of Max and his brother Igor. Each of them originally members of the legendary Brazilian band Sepultura and it had been at least ten years since the pair performed music together. That story and concert piece are documented elsewhere on the site and tonight’s appearance of Soulfly would not only be working off the momentum of that other tour but also be celebrating the bands newest CD entitled “Conquer”. The gigs featured three openers in Devastation, Incite and Bleed The Sky, but since I had not known about the very first bands participation I missed them entirely and instead arrived just as Incite were set to hit the stage.

Cavalera Conspiracy @ Fillmore at Irving Plaza (7/19/2008)

The Cavalera Conspiracy found the brothers formerly known for their work in Sepultura back in action together again. The tour also featured The Dillinger Escape Plan, Throwdown and Incite and we were on point to deliver the story. Readers can scroll past the logo below to be brought to the article.

There was a lot of excitement in the Metal community when it became known that Max and Igor Cavalera were not only going to be recording and releasing a new album, but also doing some touring in support of it. The album was titled “Inflikted” and the band would come to be known as the Cavalera Conspiracy. It would feature not only Max and Igor, but also Marc Rizzo of Soulfly and Joe Duplantier of Gojira and be a straight ahead Metal record that delivered on all counts. The bands appearance in NYC would find them hosting not one, but two sold out nights at The Fillmore NY venue. We would hit the Saturday performance and make sure that we were in place to enjoy all five of the bands that would be featured on the bill this evening. Clearly this was going to be a long night, and the summer heat was only going to escalate with this much Metal to absorb. Incite would be the first group up for the night.
