Metalhead TV conducted an interview with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY/ex-SEPULTURA drummer Igor Cavalera at this year's Hellfest, which was held June 20-22, 2008 in Clisson, France. Watch the seven-minute chat below.

When asked for his thoughts on his brother Max's recent statements in the press that he would like to take part in a SEPULTURA reunion, Igor replied, "I don't know, man. I have my personal reunion already. I'm playing with Max [in CAVALERA CONSPIRACY] — a lot of new stuff from CAVALERA, a lot of old stuff from NAILBOMB, from SEPULTURA, stuff that me and Max wrote when we were, like, 15 or 16, so for me, I have already my reunion — I don't need another SEPULTURA reunion."

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY recently tapped Johny Chow (a.k.a. John Mark Bechtel; FIREBALL MINISTRY, SOULS OF WE, ex-SYSTEMATIC, MY RUIN) to play bass on the group's current European tour. Joe Duplantier of the French progressive death metallers GOJIRA, who laid down all the bass tracks on CAVALERA CONSPIRACY's debut album, "Inflikted", is currently in the studio working on the new GOJIRA CD and is unable to join CAVALERA CONSPIRACY on the road.

Johny Chow played his first show with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY on May 30 at the Electric Weekend in Madrid, Spain.

CAVALERA CONSPIRACY will team up with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, THROWDOWN, BURY YOUR DEAD and INCITE for a North American tour beginning later this month.
