Igor Cavalera Admits Pantera Became Sepultura’s Biggest Liability

In a recent chat with Metal Hammer, Sepultura’s Igor Cavalera looked back at the bands they toured with and shared the one that was the biggest liability. The rocker said:

“Pantera. We toured with them at the peak of their tours when they had a lot of money to experiment with things and were drinking a lot of alcohol. It really felt like anything could happen.”

While Igor chose Pantera, Max joined in the conversation and shared the band he found the most hard to tour with. He recalled:

“I’d go with The Dillinger Escape Plan, because they were chaos on the stage every night. It was very exciting to watch, because you knew crazy shit was going to go down. They’d throw amplifiers in the crowd or Greg Puciato would be jumping from the balconies.”

Even though Max and Igor aren’t with Sepultura anymore who are currently touring Europe, when Metal Hammer asked whether they ever plan to reunite with the band Igor replied:

“We’ve got a little tired of talking about this. I have my full desire to play with Max and if it happens for the right reasons, it happens. If it doesn’t, I’m also cool with it.”

The rocker didn’t close the door fully, but Max added:

“We’re so happy with the way we are doing things now that I don’t see the need. It might even be for the best that we keep the original as a sacred thing. But I don’t have a crystal ball, so I don’t know what will happen in the future.”
