Max Cavalera, guitarist and vocalist (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy, ex-Sepultura) has formed a new band with his son Igor Amadeus Cavalera (bass, guitar) and drummer Zach Coleman (Black Curse, Khemmis). The new band Go Ahead And Die just signed their deal with Nuclear Blast Records. They are currently working on their debut album.
At this point you’re probably wondering what will it sound like? The official press release states it will ‘produce a sound that mixes elements of death and thrash metal, with early Celtic Frost influences and a punk attitude.’
Regarding the project, Max Cavalera said:
“One of a kind father/son collaboration bringing the old school with a new attitude! Sick riffs and abrasive lyrics from Igor and brutal drumming from Zach Coleman inspired me! Extreme times call for extreme music!”
Igor commented: “We are beyond excited to sign with Nuclear Blast. They are definitely the right choice for this colossally heavy record. G.A.A.D. will deliver fast-paced, hate-fueled energy that hasn’t been heard in years.”
Zach Coleman added: “I could not be more excited to be a part of G.A.A.D. and to have the album come out on Nuclear Blast! I feel like we were able to capture (extreme) aggression with the record. It’s a mix of old school (think ’89 era metal/punk) style and newer sounds that reflect what’s going on around us. Protest and Survive!”
Nuclear Blast also seemed very excited by the signing saying: “For such a heavy, brutal, and pissed-off record; Go Ahead And Die will leave any metal fan with a smile on their face. With riffs the size of boulders and a genuine fuck off attitude that speaks about today’s horrors, this album will without a doubt leave a mark in metal and we are happy to be part of the journey.”
No date has been set for the debut album.
