SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY guitarist Marc Rizzo will be interviewed live on the "Metal Crypt" show on Wednesday, April 22 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
You can listen to the program via the Internet at this location.
SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera (guitar, vocals) was forced to miss the final show of the band's European tour on March 27 at Posten in Odense, Denmark after being taken ill. The rest of SOULFLY went ahead and played the gig without him, with bassist Bobby Burns assuming bass and vocal duties (and fellow axeman Marc Rizzo joining in) while Luis Marrufo from support band INCITE filled in on rhythm guitar.
Regarding the songwriting process for the next SOULFLY album, Max said in a recent interview, "I am working on new songs with Marc [Rizzo, guitar], a little bit. We're thinking about making the songs a little shorter, so if you can imagine maybe a little bit like MINOR THREAT mixed with [SLAYER's] 'Reign In Blood' mixed with SOULFLY, with still some world music, but much smaller, and the songs not so long — shorter. It'll be more aggressive than [last year's] 'Conquer' [album] even, because it'll be shorter — it'll be like when SLAYER did 'Reign In Blood', [that] kind of thing. I don't know why some interviewers talked to me and said that they thought that the album was gonna be less aggressive, more like [2000's] 'Primitive', which I don't know where it came from, because I never said that. In fact, I just started working on the album on this tour, so it's only been a month. But this is the official news right now — it's gonna be more aggressive, faster, shorter."
