Biography

Max Cavalera (born Massimiliano Antonio Cavalera on August 4, 1969 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil) is a musician.

Formerly the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the metal band Sepultura, upon parting ways with the band, Cavalera formed Soulfly in the late 1990s. In the mid-1990s Max was also involved with the short-lived side project Nailbomb. He has collaborated with many different artists whilst in both Sepultura and Soulfly. He explores religious topics, often with a very critical tongue. The press (especially in America after Max dedicated one of the Soulfly albums to God) depicts him as a religious guy, a label that Max cannot understand. As he himself put it, “I do hate a lot of ‘religion’ but people like Christ - yeah they inspire me. I mean if you look at Christ, He was hanging around with the lowlifes, prostitutes and the losers you know, not going around with those high society motherfuckers you see trying to sell Jesus today!”

In the early 1990s Max relocated to Phoenix, Arizona U.S.A., with his American wife/manager Gloria, and is today a U.S. citizen.

Of late Max joined forces with former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl to produce “Red War” which appeared on the self-titled release of Probot.

Max also has an ESP signature guitar. Designed to Max’s specifications, the guitar has a Seymour Duncan Super Distortion pickup, and is adorned with his signature Brazillian flag graphic.
