MASTODON's Troy Sanders Is Joining MAX CAVALERA's Supergroup with GREG PUCIATO

This supergroup just got more super. On the 100th edition of the RIP a Livecast, The Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato revealed exclusively to us that he and Soulfly's Max Cavalera are going to be collaborating on a project reminiscent of Cavalera's work in Nailbomb. We've written a lot about it in the past, and today we get another update and this one is huge!

Max Cavalera was recently interviewed and said that Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders has joined the project.

During a recent interview with a Singapore metal show, "Vicious Volume", on Ria 89.7FM, Max had this to reveal:

"Troy [Sanders] from Mastodon just joined the band, too, so now we've got three singers for the project, which is also really killer. I'm really excited about that, too. I think it's gonna be a very original project. I don't know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this. So it can be almost like a Transplants of metal. Transplants had three singers; this also has three singers, and it can be very, very great. I'm following, in a lot of ways, some of the same footsteps as Nailbomb [Max's mid-1990s project with Alex Newport of Fudge Tunnel in my approach to this project — a lot of do-it-yourself, punk-rock kind of feeling to the project. So the songs are written really quick — I don't think too much about it. I like it more like that, so they are very raw. We are working on the [music] in December and then we're hoping to get in the studio in January. The main thing we don't have is a name."

Hopefully by January we can get a clearer picture of where the group is with the music. Could we finally see this project come to light in 2013? I'm very excited for this.
