This long-anticipated reunion between the Cavalera brothers is something fans across the globe have been clamoring for since Sepultura’s last gig in December 1996.
“When Igor, and I met at the 10th Annual D-Low Memorial Show and got the instruments in our hands, it was like we had never been separated. The metal was flowing in our veins,” comments Max. “It was the same in the studio.”
In early January, 2008, Inflikted’s tracklist was revealed. A B-side cover of the Possessed death/thrash classic, The Exorcist, was also recorded. A single for Sanctuary was released on March 3, 2008.
