Cavalera Conspiracy with Death Angel

Cavalera Conspiracy with Special Guests Death Angel


Mojoe’s-Joliet, Illinois 04/24/15

Cavalera Conspiracy returned with a vengeance in October 2014 with the release of “Pandemonium”. Picking up right where they left off with 2011’s “Blunt Force Trauma”, Max & Igor have delivered yet another relentless assault of extreme metal aggression. They brought their brand of metal madness to Mojoe’s Joliet, Friday April 24, 2015. Opening the show was Lody Kong, followed by King Hitter. San Francisco Thrash metal legends Death Angel took the stage and lit the place up. Playing old classic’s, as well as new, they brought the crowd to life. Original founding guitarist Rob Cavestany, along with Vocalist Mark Osegueda tore it up, while the rest of the band followed, delivering infectious energy to the zealous crowd.


Cavalera Conspiracy stormed the stage with the opening track off their latest release, “Babylonian Pandemonium”. Followed quickly by “Terrorize” from their 2008 debut release “Inflikted”, the Cavalera brothers then launched into SEPULTURA’s “Refuse/Resist”, followed immediately by “Territory”. The place was on fire. Hearing the old SEPULTURA classics was enough to make everyone go berzerk. Lead guitarist Marc Rizzo was a show within himself as he burned the fretboard with amazing precision, as did bassist Nate Newton. The Cavalera brothers shook the house down with more Cavalera Conspiracy songs, “The Doom Of All Fires”, “Torture”, and “Killing Inside”. They slayed the crowd with yet another blast of SEPULTURA, a medley of “Beneath The Remains/Desperate Cry/Troops of Doom”. If ever the faithful SEPULTURA tribe hoped for a reunion, this may have been it. What a treat to hear so many of the old Brazilian thrash metal classics. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more brutal, the band tore into the title track of their most powerful release, “Inflikted”. Finishing the show with “Orgasmatron”, and they followed with one last SEPULTURA classic . . . “Roots”. Cavalera Conspiracy delivered an extreme brutal assault. It was a pleasure to see Max and Igor jamming together, and doing it so well.
