Australia’s Loud magazine recently spoke with Soulfly’s Max Cavalera about his upcoming autobiography, which I will definitely be reading.
“Yeah, it’s gonna be released around Christmas,” says Max.
“I’m finishing up all the interviews; I did like a thousand interviews, man. It was crazy; going through all my life and it has really cool details of things that happened in my life,” Max explains.
Yes, the topic of Sepultura will be covered, as will the death of his stepson.
“Those together, as they’re both connected. Very much the hardest chapter I think is going to be the death of Dana, leading into the break-up of Sepultura, which in my life is a low point,” says Max.
“There have been two low points in my life; there’s been the death of my father when I was nine, which led me to get into music, and then the death of Dana and the break-up from Sepultura. Those are the crucial points. But from all of them, something good has come out of it. Like from the death of my father, Sepultura came, and from the death of Dana and break-up from Sepultura, Soulfly came. So there’s good things that came out of both things, so a lot of tragedy, unfortunately, but good stuff comes out of it.”
Max said anyone who reads the book will “understand why I left Sepultura once and for all and maybe stop asking me questions, you know?”
