Sepultura’s legendary vocalist Max Cavalera again made harsh statements about his former band. Max is currently touring in the 20th year anniversary of “Roots” album. He explained where his idea of going on tour with his brother Igor came from. He also spoke very hard about his old bandmates.
Max Cavalera spoke in an interview prepared by Metal Rules. He first explained how the “Return To Roots” tour was revealed. He said:
“We haven’t really planned this for a long time. We’ve been trying to do the reunion for a long time with the other jackasses. But they don’t want to do it. They keep fucking it up, and at one time I called Andreas [Kisser, Sepultura guitarist]. I said, ‘Let’s fucking do it, man.’ I got so frustrated. I was just going nowhere with it. Because I want to do it for the fans. So, thank God Gloria [Cavalera, Max’s wife and manager] came up with this idea. She was saying, ‘How about just you and Igor, just do it yourselves. It’s your record, you wrote it. Igor played drums on it. You wrote all the music on it. You sang all the stuff. I think people will like to see it just like this. They don’t care about the rest.'”
Max also said a few sentences about the old band Sepultura. According to him, after leaving Sepultura, the band never made a good song. He said:
“I’m sure they are not happy. But no, I haven’t heard anything from them. But there’s, like, one thing I have to say about those guys. Tell me one great song they have written since I left. Name one great album they have put out after that. I haven’t seen anything. I don’t know one name of one song as popular as ‘Roots Bloody Roots’.
So, it just tells me like whatever they are doing, I don’t know how they keep on going. I don’t think it’s working at all. But somehow they keep on going, somehow. It’s crazy to me. But we say, just fuck it. Because we got tired of asking them to do reunion and they never wanted to do it. So, I just said… Gloria had the idea. Just do these shows [with] Igor, and we’re doing this. Fuck it. I don’t give a shit what they say. We’re going to do this, and it’s great. We don’t care what they think or say. They can talk shit if they want to.“
