Max & Iggor Cavalera with special guests Warbringer and Healing Magic at The Vogue in Indianapolis on Monday, June 6, 2022
MAX & IGGOR CAVALERA
The Cavalera brothers will play the classic Beneath The Remains & Arise albums as the North American debut of this world tour!
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 Iggor 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.
A hard-charging neo-thrash unit based out of Newbury Park, California, Warbringer were founded in 2004 while the bandmembers were still in high school. Inspired by first-wave thrash giants like , , and , the group recorded a promising demo that eventually led to an EP, One by One, The Wicked Fall, in 2006. The EP was solid enough to capture the attention of , which quickly signed Warbringer and released their debut album, War Without End, in 2008. The following year saw the release of Waking Into Nightmares, which was produced by guitarist Dan Seagrave, and in 2011 the band dropped its third studio long-player, World Torn Asunder. IV: Empires Collapse arrived in 2013, followed by the punishing Woe to the Vanquished, the band’s first for , in 2017. Warbringer returned in 2020 with their punishing fifth full-length effort, Weapons of Tomorrow.
HEALING MAGIC hypnotically sway, back and forth, between fuzzy roars of primal power and all-enveloping atmospheric swirls of sludge, cloaking any environment in clouds of musical smoke. Like a primeval shamanistic ritual held in the backroom of a crust-punk-sticker covered venue, the band summon forth all of the haunting organic mysticism Middle Earth could offer, with the urgency of scrappy upstarts whose lives depend solely on the music they purge from within. That so much raw power and immersive psychedelia originates from just two people only furthers the mystery and wonder.
Wielding a guitar and array of amps like a wizard’s staff, Igor Amadeus Cavalera makes quick use of the heavy metal embedded in his DNA. Drummer Johnny Valles leans here upon the inspired foundations laid down by John Bonham and Bill Ward.
HEALING MAGIC thematically deals in witchcraft, wizardry, and alchemy, with a spiritual emphasis on the powers of the elements, true communion with animals and nature, and primitive positivity. Songs like “Nature’s Embrace,” “The Tyrant,” and “Medicinal” are equal parts heavy jams, thrashing barnburners, and storytelling epics. They take listeners into uncharted pathways of the mind, journeying through mountains and forests while sitting completely still.
As the young duo of HEALING MAGIC begin to assemble their own library of folklore, across sound recordings and unbridled live performances, expect the good time vibe to catch you.
