Max Cavalera (Soulfly, Sepultura, Nailbomb) launched his new online video series, Max Trax, where he discusses the inspiration of the songs he has performed throughout his career. The first two episodes break down the classic Soulfly track “Eye For An Eye” and Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away”.
Cavalera recently guested on 93XRadio and discussed the band's latest album, Ritual, touring with family, and offered his thoughts on the metal community. Check out the interview below.
On the Ritual track "Feedback!":
"Being the student of metal like I am, we all learn from Motörhead as our teachers. Lemmy was like our big teacher, and it was a challenge. I had the riff that sounded a lot like 'Iron Fist' mixed with Ace of Spades', little bit of 'High On Fire' with the ending that sounds a bit kind of like New York hardcore, like Cro-mags, Leeway, Sick Of It All. So yeah, it was a fun thing to do, and the lyrics are all about the road. It's like the life on the road. I've thrown some humor in there, like, 'Venue smells like rot' because when you pull in a venue and it smells like slow decay in there."
