Cavalera, Max: My Bloody Roots - From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond

This isn't a review of another music recording instead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Max Cavalera has released his autobiography My Bloody Roots - From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond. This is a great read from a guy telling it as it was and not holding back. Max Cavalera is a name that always attracts my attention, and it's little wonder having played a major role in founding the very successful Sepultura. A group who put Brazil on the metal map and he followed Sepultura with another successful band namely Soulfly. Next there was Cavalera Conspiracy who have a third album out later this year. Max has also recently played a part in the new metal supergroup Killer Be Killed, and not to forget the earlier Nailbomb project all of which are covered here.

Max's achievements in the metal world are so very impressive having endured so much over the years. After reading this book you discover how well respected Max is by many other famous artists who have also contributed their thoughts to My Bloody Roots - From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond.

Fans of Sepultura and Soulfly will find this book a compelling read when Max delves into their formations and the many following releases, Max goes into quite some detail and you really do gain a new appreciation for those recordings. You would expect My Bloody Roots - From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond to delve into his departure from Sepultura which it does. At a period when the band were at their peak in popularity after the release of Roots, and Max was already going through a terrible time dealing with the death of his stepson.

There is also more interesting reading as Max delves into his eventful childhood, family life and problems with drugs and alcohol giving readers an interesting insight into the other side of Max Cavalera. Including Max's relationship with his brother drummer Igor Cavalera, and after many years of silence between the two how they would get back together and form Cavalera Conspiracy.

My Bloody Roots - From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond is an enjoyable journey that flows very well, taking you through the life of one Max Cavalera and is highly recommended to his many worldwide fans.
