Soulfly singer Max Cavalera has made a lot of music throughout his career. Between Sepultura, Soulfly, Nailbomb, Killer Be Killed, and much more, Max’s musical resume is remarkable. But during a recent interview with Blabbermouth, Max spoke to the record he had “the most fun” making (at the time of that interview at least). Of all his releases, can you guess which one it might be?
At one point within the interview, Max Cavalera is asked if he is someone who works best under pressure; in his reply to this question, he speaks to the album where “zero fucks” were given, and he had lots of fun. Per Soulfly singer Max Cavalera:
“Sure. You can argue that, but there wasn’t that much pressure on me. I consider some of the classic records like [Sepultura’s] ‘Chaos A.D.’ or [Nailbomb’s] ‘Nailbomb’ to be fun to make. Heck, Nailbomb was the most fun I had making a record in my life. There were zero fucks given. It was like, ‘We don’t care about anything! We’re just doing whatever we want. That’s it. If nobody likes it, we don’t give a shit.’ Now, it’s a cult record and a lot of people like it. It depends. Then you have records like ‘Beneath The Remains’ and ‘Soulfly I’, they were very stressful. Even remembering my state of mind while making those two records stresses me out. [Laughs]”
We love that Nailbomb record; it is an incredible album and heavy as fuck. What are your thoughts on that album? The band only ever released the one record (which came out in 1994). In that same interview with Blabbermoth, Max also debunks the idea that there was ever a Sepultura and Slayer feud in the ’90s. He also speaks to collaborating with Slayer bassist and singer Tom Araya. To learn more about Max’s collaboration with Tom Araya, follow the link below.
