In a brand new interview with BurningAmbulance.com, Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, SEPULTURA, KILLER BE KILLED, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY) was asked what it's like being on labels like Nuclear Blast (with SOULFLY and KILLER BE KILLED) and Napalm (with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY) after spending more than two decades as a Roadrunner recording artist.
"I think it's cool to have SOULFLY on Nuclear Blast and CAVALERA on Napalm," Max said. "They might be the two strongest metal labels around, you know, and it's good to be there."
He continued: "As far as being on a label like Nuclear Blast today, it's great, because it reminds me of the Roadrunner of the '90s that I loved when I was in SEPULTURA. That was a metal label that loved metal. Unfortunately, that was not the case anymore in the end, and that's why I left. I'm just happy to be back with a label that gets excited for my music. Because Nuclear Blast, they get excited when they hear there's a new SOULFLY record coming out, there's a KILLER BE KILLED album being made. They get excited, like fans. That's a huge difference, and I love being with a label that has that. That's what made me go to Nuclear Blast and Napalm Records."
CAVALERA CONSPIRACY's third album, "Pandemonium", sold around 2,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 177 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Nuclear Blast Entertainment has set an August 14 North American release date for "Archangel", the tenth studio album from SOULFLY. The CD was produced by Matt Hyde, who has previously worked with SLAYER and CHILDREN OF BODOM.
SOULFLY will embark on a North American headlining tour at the end of September. Joining them on this epic campaign are Swedish melodic death metal visionaries SOILWORK, Polish technical death metallers DECAPITATED, and hot newcomers SHATTERED SUN.
