Max And Iggor Cavalera To Release Newly Re-Recorded Version Of Sepultura’s “Schizophrenia” In June


Max and Iggor Cavalera have continued their look back at their shared musical history in Sepultura, with the brotherly duo now having newly re-recorded that band’s 1987 sophomore album, “Schizophrenia“. The two brothers formed that legendary Brazilian metal outfit in early 80s, with Max departing in 1996, and Iggor following in 2006.

Last year saw the brothers release newly re-recorded versions of the early Sepultura efforts “Morbid Visions” and “Bestial Devastation” under their Cavalera banner. This re-recorded of “Schizophrenia” will be released under the same banner, arriving on June 21st through Nuclear Blast.

Fleshing out the record is Max‘s son Igor Amadeus Cavalera (Go Ahead And Die, etc.) on bass and Travis Stone of Pig Destroyer fame on lead guitars. Recording sessions took place last spring at the Focusrite Room in Mesa, AZ. Arthur Rizk (Soulfly, Turnstile) was hired to mix and master the end results.

A live music video for “Escape To The Void” filmed by Costin & Olivia Chioreanu serves as this first taste of this latest trip down memory lane. The footage in it was filmed during a November 15th, 2023 Cavalera set at 013 in Tilburg, NET.

Speaking of this concluding chapter in the band’s ‘Third World Trilogy’, Max offered:

“The Third World Trilogy is finally complete with Schizophrenia, Bestial Devastation, and Morbid Visions, all three Brazilian underground gems! To me, Schizophrenia is the ultimate death/ thrash experiment! I was inspired to take on the world and this recording shows my commitment is relentless! This one is for all the generations to enjoy! Play at Max volume!”

Iggor added:

“1987 was a very progressive year for metal, with releases like Celtic Frost Into The Pandemonium, Voivod Killing Technology, and Bathory Under The Sign Of The Black Mark, so it was no surprise on how we approached Schizophrenia pushing our boundaries from a black/death metal sound to a more thrash metal aesthetics. We still had some ideas from Morbid Visions and some new songs. I’m very proud of the songwriting and even more proud of our re-recordings.”
