Soulfly, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mars Volta Supergroup Inks Record Deal
The yet-unnamed supergroup consisting of Soulfly, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan and Mars Volta members has officially signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast Records. As Blabbermouth reports, the debut album is tentatively due out in mid-2014 and is currently being recorded at the Fortress Studio in Los Angeles. The band itself consists of Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato, Troy Sanders and drummer Dave Elitch. As far as the production goes, Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira) is the man in charge. "It's going to be cool, we just don't have a name yet, the name is a pain in the a-- to find but the music is great," Cavalera told Terrorizer back in September. "We have been working on this for two years!" He continued, "Greg approached me kinda like how Alex [Newport] approached me to do Nailbomb in that he was really, really trying to get me to do this project. I told him already I was pretty busy doing Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy [and] I was not really looking for an extra thing, but he was pretty insistent and then I just gave up and was like 'Let's f--king do this!'" The initial reports had the rock community pretty excited, so once again - what kind of metal mixture do you think we'll be getting here?
