Mastodon, Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan & Soulfly Members Form Super Group

    Five of the biggest musicians in metal have announced plans for an exciting new project. Troy Sanders’ of Mastodon, Nate Newton of Converge, Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan, Max Cavalera of Soulfly and Mars Volta associate Dave Elitch are joining forces to form a metal super group.

    Cavalera recently went into detail about the new group during an interview on Singapore radio:

    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.”
