There's always good news and bad news whenever Max Cavalera gets busy with new music. The good is that you get a whole lot of new music, seemingly all in a very short time. The bad news is it's generally spotty at best, because he simply writes and releases too much music at the same time. His band Soulfly released SAVAGES in late 2013, which was followed with another band, Killer Be Killed, being released in May. Six months later, we now have a new release from Cavalera Conspiracy called PANDEMONIUM. Like any fan of Cavalera's, a single 12 month period where I get 36 new creations from him is a good year. That said though, it sometimes comes with a bit of boredom, as it's just not likely that he's going to vary his writing greatly from project to project. And he hasn't. PANDEMONIUM features a bit of a deeper voiced, more death metal-like vocal from Cavalera, but the music is fairly similar to most of the other stuff he's done in the last year.
