Anyway, Cavalera and brother Igor Cavalera started the thrash/groove metal band Sepultura, which rose to fame through the ’90s and released some incredible records that would influence a generation of metalheads and hardcore punks. Max Cavalera eventually wound up leaving the band to start Soulfly in 1997, which has more of a nu-metal flare to it, compared to the thrash roots of Sepultura.
Also on the bill: Nile, a death metal band whose lyricism is punctuated with references to Egyptian curses and sacrifices. You know, real metal shit.
$25-$30, Wed May 23, 6pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E Houston, (210) 677-9453, therockboxsa.com.
