CAVALERA has become synonymous with extreme metal music, a name that to this day still holds the highest regard, a family legacy built upon decades of musical aggression. 

In 2023, Max and Iggor Cavalera achieved what some would say was an impossible feat; they revisited their earliest releases, Morbid Visions, and Bestial Devastation, and re-recorded them with bone-breaking intensity. A risk that few would dare to even attempt, yet they artfully and prolifically attained their trademark raw sound by means that could only be described as magic or time travel. 

Today, the band releases the final chapter of their early-days trilogy, Schizophrenia. The iconic album in terms of early thrash and death metal, is a household name for those of us invested in extreme metal. It was the point where the Cavaleras refined their dark, dingy, speed-influenced songs, into something a bit more mature, developed, and technical. 

In celebration of the release, the band offer fans a fresh new single , 'Nightmares Of Delirium'. The song is a bonus to the landmark 1987 album and features lyrics from Max's son Igor Amadeus Cavalera.

Max Cavalera states, "Schizophrenia has been locked away in a mental asylum for nearly 37 years. I’m very proud to bring it into the future with a modern sound without losing its old-school mentality. Complete with a new bonus track, 'Nightmares of Delirium', created especially for this album. Thrash till death!"

Iggor Cavalera comments, “Hello head bangers… can’t wait for you all to hear our re recorded version of Schizophrenia. It’s a labor of sweat and love… see you in the pit”
