Thrash metal legend Max Cavalera was the vocalist, guitarist, and founding member of Sepultura, one of the most influential and successful metal bands of all time. And after leaving Sepultura in 1996, Max started another legendary and influential metal band called Soulfly. Max has also been a part of many other projects throughout his career, and one of his most recent is a band called Go Ahead And Die. Go Ahead And Die is the brainchild of Max’s youngest son, Igor Amadeus Cavalera.
In this interview, Max talks about the upcoming U.S. tour with Go Ahead And Die, and what it will be like to watch his son take center stage. He also talks about the writing and production of the band’s latest record, Unhealthy Mechanisms. He talks about what might be coming up for Soulfly and Killer Be Killed, and he answers the question of whether he’s ever listened to Sepultura music that was made after he left the band.

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
