Brazilian death/thrash metal act Cavalera Conspiracy originally formed in 2006 as Inflikted, around the talents of groundbreaking metal juggernaut Sepultura siblings Max Cavalera (vocals and guitar) and drummer Igor Cavalera, guitarist Marc Rizzo (Soulfly), and bassist Joe Duplantier (Gojira), but changed the name to Cavalera Conspiracy for legal reasons.
The band's debut for Roadrunner Records, Inflikted, arrived on March 25, 2008. Cavalera Conspiracy took a brief break as the Cavalera brothers returned to their respective bands, but regrouped in 2009 for a European tour. The following year, Cavalera Conspiracy went back into the studio to begin work on their follow-up album. The brothers released their second blast of groove metal heaviness, appropriately titled Blunt Force Trauma, in 2011. In August 2014 they dropped the punishing single "Bonzai Kamikaze" ahead of the release of their third full-length, Pandemonium, which arrived later that October. Psychosis, which included the singles "Insane" and "Spectral War," followed in 2017. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
