Max Cavalera, Troy Sanders + Greg Puciato Hit the Studio for Unnamed Project
Supergroup update! It’s no secret that Soulfly frontman and guitiarist Max Cavalera, Mastodon singer and bassist Troy Sanders and Dillinger Escape Plan vocal terrorist Greg Puciato have been in cahoots working on a project together. But things in this project filled with frontmen are slowly but surely taking shape, as the singers have converged on an L.A. recording studio.
The group without a name also features former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. Cavalera also confirmed in an update that each of the frontmen will be singing, as well, so color us intrigued.
The members are holed up in Fortress Studio in L.A. with Josh Wilbur manning the boards. ”It’s going to be cool, we just don’t have a name yet, the name is a pain in the a– to find, but the music is great. We have been working on this for two years,” Cavalera told Terrorizer.
The former Sepultura member explained that it was Puciato who was the driving force behind the project, confessing, “Greg approached me kinda like how Alex [Newport] approached me to do Nailbomb in that he was really, really trying to get me to do this project. I told him already I was pretty busy doing Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy [and] I was not really looking for an extra thing, but he was pretty insistent and then I just gave up and was like, ‘Let’s f–king do this!’”
Cavalera further revealed how Elitch and Sanders came to be participants, saying, “It started with just me and Greg and then we got Dave Elitch — he’s an amazing drummer — and then Greg knew Troy and we asked him to be the bassist so it kind of became a supergroup all of a sudden.”
Cavalera said they have “jammed a couple of times and the last jam we did it sounded killer; the songs are really powerful, real heavy. It’s hard to describe but I think the coolest thing about this project is that all three of us are going to sing on every song.” There’s no way this project can be anything but killer!
An album is expected to be released in 2014 … once they, you know, come up with a name and all!
