Max Cavalera has revealed in an interview on Singapore radio that Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders has joined the much anticipated supergroup now consisting of himself, Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato, Nate Newton and Dave Elitch. Cavalera says of this:
"Troy [Sanders] from Mastodon just joined the band, too, so now we’ve got three singers for the project, which is also really killer. I’m really excited about that, too. I think it’s gonna be a very original project. I don’t know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this. So it can be almost like a Transplants of metal. Transplants had three singers; this also has three singers, and it can be very, very great. I’m following, in a lot of ways, some of the same footsteps as Nailbomb [Max's mid-1990s project with Alex Newport of Fudge Tunnel] in my approach to this project — a lot of do-it-yourself, punk-rock kind of feeling to the project. So the songs are written really quick — I don’t think too much about it. I like it more like that, so they are very raw. We are working on the [music] in December and then we’re hoping to get in the studio in January. The main thing we don’t have is a name."

Didn't even know about this, It'll probably suck but we can dream.....
I will definitely keep my eye on this project.

I am very much looking forward to this. But who's playing bass. If they're doing what they do in their own bands, we have:
Greg Puciato - vocals
Max Cavalera - guitar, vocals
Troy Sanders - bass, vocals
Nate Newton - bass
Dave Elitch - drums.
I'm guessing one of Newton/Sanders will be playing guitar. Shame cos I was hoping Max would bring his mate Logan Mader in.
If Newton or Sanders plays guitar, I hope it's Sanders, 'cause Newton kicks Troy's ass when it comes to bass. But this actually sounds sweet.

Yeah this will rule cos MAX FUCKING CAVALERA, GREG FUCKING PUCIATO, NATE FUCKING NEWTON, TROY FUCKING SANDERS AND Dave Elitch.
Max Cavalera actually turns me off.
Max is my favourite musician. Along with Devin Townsend.
This is pretty cool, pysched to hear this.

might be interesting
Digging: Still Corners - Strange Pleasures
Greg Puciato and Nate Newton? In the same band? I think I just came.
Digging: Queens of the Stone Age - ...Like Clockwork
Looks very interesting, not altogether sure how much max has got left in him going on his live presence in the last few years but he seemed to step it up with the last soulfly album so it could be good
Digging: My Vitriol - Finelines
I didn't even know this existed. I'm excited
Ill keep an eye out. I'm intrigued.
Digging: This Will Destroy You - Young Mountain
guessing nate will play guitar, as he does in doomriders. i would be more excited about this if cavalera wasn't a part of it tbh. i love early sepultura, but he isn't all that good anymore.

"I don’t know any other metal projects out there with three people singing like this."
Well that's embarrassing.
"i would be more excited about this if cavalera wasn't a part of it tbh "
I understand you are to young to like cavalera. He is not cool enough for you.
i think it's an understandable statement as he peaked about 20 years ago
I just never dug Sepultura or Soulfly.
you don't even like beneath the remains and arise?
I don't dislike them, just never were my digs.
Don't like Mastodon, so I'm not as excited as I should be. The rest of the lineup is stellar.
this sounds like it will rule, stoked to hear this almost as much as palms
Digging: Vice or Virtue - Enlightenment
this sounds pretty cool. seriously, I can't see how it will suck.
time will tell.
In case some of you don't know about Old Man Gloom or Jesuit or Doomriders, yes, Nate Newton does play guitar.
Digging: The World is a Beautiful Place And... - Whenever, If Ever
if greg isn't doing vocals this will suck.
Digging: Faith No More - The Real Thing
Yeah, Cavalera kinda puts me off as well.
Still, it could be a surprise for everybody.
