Cavalera Conspiracy still represents merciless thrash metal that can lead to severe neck problems due to intense headbanging.
I think the rivalry thing is just boring and really juvenile for me.
It was a record that we went in and decided “Let’s make a record that doesn’t get big”, “Alright, let’s do that. Let’s eliminate any chances of this record ever getting big”. So we did the dirtiest recording and the most fucked-up sound; this thing’s not going to get big. It’s really like the opposite state of mind we had when we made Roots; we wanted to make the biggest metal album ever. This one was the opposite; “Let’s make the least biggest album ever”
The Portugese accent also gives vocalist Ricardo Martins a bit of an early day Max Cavalera feel, which in turn gives the disc a slight SEPULTURA feel in places…something I certainly won’t complain about….
KAIROS is a pretty awesome modern groove, death, thrash release and not only does mainstay Andreas Kisser sound like he has finally embraced being the lone guitarist, but Derrick Green also sounds the best he ever has this time around and really comes across as an all-encumbering monster…
