I was happy to hear the reunion of singer/rhythm guitarist Max and drummer Iggor Cavalera following their dispute during the Sepultura-era. Now, they are back in the form of “Cavalera Conspiracy” consisting of them, Gojira bassist Joe Duplantier, and Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo. That being said, “Inflikted” does not disappoint, I enjoyed all eleven tracks with the brutal…and then soothing “Bloodbrawl” being my personal favorite. Seguing into a sorrowful latin-tinged tune, any Soulfly listener would almost definitely compare this to the song “Frontlines.” “Hex” is insane, and the MTV2 heavily-played “Sanctuary” is another classic. CC has not abandoned their groove metal roots from the days of Soulfly and Sepultura with “Terrorize” and the beginning of “Dark Ark” (with a spoken word by Ritchie Cavalera) standing out amongst Iggor’s fast, rhythmic drums. Oh, and don’t forget “Bloodbrawl.” I expect great things and cannot wait for their second album…whenever that is.
