Max and Iggor Cavalera
Phoenix death/thrash metal act Cavalera Conspiracy, which also operates under the moniker Cavalera, was formed in 2007 by Brazilian metal legends and siblings Max Cavalera (vocals and guitar) and Igor Cavalera (drums), formerly of Sepultura. The group's sound reflects the punitive, blackened thrash of the brothers' flagship band, with added hardcore punk and groove metal elements. Between 2008 and 2017, Cavalera Conspiracy issued four studio albums (Inflikted, Blunt Force Trauma, Pandemonium, and Psychosis) before shortening their name ahead of the release of 2023's re-recording of 's 1986 debut, Morbid Visions.

The formation of Cavalera Conspiracy marked the conclusion of a ten-year feud between the Cavalera brothers, who co-founded Sepultura in their native Brazil in 1984. Rounded out by guitarist Marc Rizzo (Soulfly) and bassist Joe Duplantier (Gojira), the band's debut for Roadrunner Records, Inflikted, arrived on March 25, 2008.

Cavalera Conspiracy took a brief break as Max (Soulfly) and Igor (Nailbomb, Strife) returned to their respective bands, but they 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. In 2011, the brothers released their second blast of groove metal heaviness, the appropriately titled Blunt Force Trauma, with the relentlessly brutal and more grindcore-oriented Pandemonium appearing in 2014.

The similarly adrenaline-fueled Psychosis appeared three years later, marking the end of Marc Rizzo's tenure with the group. Now operating as a duo, the brothers elected to pare down their name as well, releasing 2023's Morbid Visions, a muscular re-recording of Sepultura's classic though decidedly lo-fi 1984 debut album, under the Cavalera banner. Later that year, the duo issued a re-recording of Sepultura's 1985 EP, Bestial Devastation.
