Cavalera Conspiracy have officially announced that their third studio record "Pandemonium" is set for November 4 release via Nuclear Blast Records.

Produced by John Gray (Soulfly), the album was announced with "Bonzai Kamakazi" lead single, make sure to stream it here. The front cover was also unveiled, you can find it here.

"It's called 'Pandemonium' and it's very, very heavy - the heaviest of all the three," frontman Max Cavalera told TeamRock Radio. "I was really possessed to get Igor [Cavalera] back to his 'Arise' era of drumming, everything fast."

During a separate Hard Rock Haven interview, Max briefly discussed the overall vibe, describing it as "almost grindcore," so we're clearly up for a heavy one this fall.

"There aren't really any guests on the album. Nate [Newton] from Converge plays bass and he sings one song called 'The Crucible' - it's about the witches of Salem; we did a song about that," the frontman noted. "Nate's got a great voice, 'cause he sings for Doomriders and I love his voice, so I got him to sing one song.

"That's the only guest," Max added, pointing out that "the Cavalera album is really more about me and Igor, the brothers, thrashing. This one is almost grindcore."

In related news, Killer Be Killed, a supergroup consisting of Max, Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato, Mastodon's Troy Sanders, and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch, premiered a brand new video for "Sons of Jehova" track. Make sure to give it a spin below.

    sweet, glad this project is back. Production is a bit raw, drums are probably a bit too quiet in the mix, but sound's great.
    Song had some really awesome moments but not personally fan of those vocals without max.
