Max Cavalera Confirms Killer Be Killed To Return In 2016

While speaking to Ghost Cult about the upcoming Soulfly album Archangel (Nuclear Blast), Max Cavalera took a moment to talk about his other projects. Cavalera Conspiracy released their third album Pandemonium (Napalm) towards the tail end of 2014, but it was Cavalera’s third and newest band, Killer Be Killed that caused the biggest of stirs last year, with their self-titled debut being released in the first quarter of last year through Nuclear Blast. They just did a tour of Australia at Soundwave Festival earlier this year and have permanently added drummer Ben Koller of Converge.

When asked how is able to balance three high profile outfits, the enthusiastic metallist replied: “I jump from one to the other, pretty much without thinking! I have a switch in my brain that goes off and on. I work mostly with Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy had some things last year. Killer Be Killed, we did a bit this year too, some shows.”

What does the future hold for Killer Be Killed? As a band, you have to see it as a huge success? “Yes. It was really much better than I thought (it would be) and the singers really work well together, and I had no idea how that was going to work, but it came together really good. I’m so pleased, it’s a cool, melodic record. It was done in the right way, it felt organic and very natural. It came out very pleased with it. I just don’t like the cover. I fucking hate the album cover. That’s the only negative about Killer Be Killed!”

So what is the next step? And will whatever comes out have a “Max approved” cover?

“Yes! I’ll make sure of that! We’re going to make 2 more songs soon to come out next year on Nuclear Blast for the fans, then we’re going to work on a second record next year.”

 

Archangel by Soulfly will released on August 14th by Nuclear Blast
