Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Max Cavalera has been a professional musician since 1984 and has toured the world many times. He was a founder member of the award-winning Brazilian thrash metal band Sepultura before forming Soulfly, an immensely successful group who continue to play headline slots at the world's largest festivals and released their ninth studio album, Savages, in 2013. He also plays in Cavalera Conspiracy, the band he formed with his brother Iggor in 2006.

Joel McIver is the bestselling author of "Justice for All: The Truth About Metallica" which has been translated into 9 languages. He has written for Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, and he is the occasional guest on BBC. He is currently the editor of Bass Guitar magazine. Classic Rock magazine has called him "by some distance Britain's most prolific hard rock/metal author." He wrote the official biography of the world's biggest death metal band, Cannibal Corpse and co-wrote Megadeath's bio from bass player David Ellefson.

Max Cavalera hat definitiv viel zu erzählen und in seiner von Höhen und Tiefen geprägten Karriere eine Vielzahl von spannenden Episoden erlebt. Daher macht es durchaus Sinn, dies alles in einem Buch zusammen zu fassen. Beginnend mit den Wurzeln seiner italienisch / brasilianischen Familie, seiner Kindheit in privilegierten Verhältnissen und dem traumatisierenten Tod seines Vaters bis hin zu den chaotischen Anfangstagen von Sepultura, dem beispiellosen Siegeszug der brasilianischen Metal-Pioniere und deren Zusammenbruch, dem Neuanfang mit Soulfly und den privaten und beruflichen Ups und Downs wird alles behandelt und in einem direkten und rauhen Stil erzählt.

Max Cavalera achtet auch in diesem Buch darauf, sein Image als harter und trotzdem nachdenklicher Typ zu kultivieren. Das Buch liest sich wie seine Alben sich hören - heavy, laut und extrem. Es werden aber über die eigentliche Musikerkarriere auch viele Einblicke in die private Welt von Max gewährt - viele weltanschauliche Einsprengsel und Lebensweisheiten machen das Buch zu einem deutlich interessanteren Werk als viele andere typische Musikerbiographien.

Die Lektüre ist sehr kurzweilig und am Ende des Buches hatte zumindest ich das Gefühl, es könnte noch ewig so weitergehen. Wer die Entwicklung des härteren Metal seit den Achzigern erlebt hat oder sich für diese Ära bis in die heutige Zeit interessiert, der wird an dem Buch viel Freude haben. Fans der Bands von Max werden sowieso schwerlich an diesem Werk vorbeikommen.

Ähnlich wie die Autobiographie von Lemmy hat mich dieses Buch von A - Z begeistert. Es wird auf jeden Fall in angemessener Zeit wiederholt gelesen werden.

Geiles Buch, liest sich sehr gut, einfach in English geschrieben!

Sollte jeder Max, Sepultura und Soulfly fan lesen aber auch alle anderem Metalheads!

There is no Sepultura without Max Cavalera!!!

Das Buch hatte zwar massive Lieferschwierigkeiten, aber schon nach den ersten paar Seiten wusste man, dass sich das warten gelohnt hat.
Eine absolute Pflichtlektüre für alle Fans von Sepultura und Soulfly.

Keep the tribe alive.........

3.0 von 5 Sternen Recommended for Max Cavalera fans 20. Mai 2014
Von Westapo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Being a life-long Sepultura fan, I couldn't wait to read this book. I read it in one sitting (about 7hrs) as it chronicled the life of someone I've been a fan of for 20+ years. Even though I pretty much knew what was coming next at all times, I couldn't put the book down; wanting to read each experience from Max himself. It had pretty much what I expected in terms of chronicling Max's music from Sepultura to Nailbomb, to Soulfly to Cavalera Conspiracy. What it lacked were some of the aspects of which I love to read about in autobiographies; numerous backstage party stories, antics and debauchery with other bands (there were some drunken stories with Lemmy & Ministry), friendships & rivals, and all-out destruction!! Don't get me wrong, these things are in there, just not a lot compared to other Rock autobiographies. Now since I am such a big Max Cavalera fan, the parts of the book that covered the music were interesting. The little things mentioned about the times during writing & recording legendary albums; like their mind-set, influences, antics in the studio, were interesting & fun to read about. The story of Jello Biafra's "rawr" in `Biotech Is Godzilla' is there (one I hadn't heard in 20 years), and I now know what makes the "pop" sound at the beginning of `Roots'.

Now you have to remember, this is Max Cavalera's autobiography, NOT a history of Sepultura. If you want closure regarding the break-up, you're not going to get it. Max obviously speaks about it from his perspective, and only talks about how HE felt about the situation and that's it. You're not going to get details (financial, artistic, etc) in regards to what happened to Sepultura's back catalog, who gets royalties, etc. Not much discussed business-wise. Obviously Max is not a businessman, that's why he has Gloria.

I did enjoy the book, even though it was a lot tamer compared to other autobiographies within the same vein (Rex Brown, Al Jourgensen). It often reads like you already know most of the details to certain stories already, and leaves out important info that I only know `cause I've been a fan for 20+ years. He never mentions how old Gloria is, and I get the impression she's old enough to be Max's mother. Also, very little detail into his stepson, Dana's "murder". In fact, with the details provided in this book, I'd call his "murder" an accident. And Max never goes into what instruments his sons play & how he got them involved in music. The only reason you know his son, Zyon plays drums is because Max goes over the album `Savages' in the book. If you don't know what instrument his son, Igor plays, you still won't after this book. Max is a very private person, and unfortunately, that doesn't always translate to a good autobiography.

The lack of details may bother some people. I read online that Max just verbally told his stories to writer Joel McIver (I read his `Slayer' book & was not impressed), and Joel just wrote it down. Unfortunately, it sometimes reads like it. The lack of detail in some stories is just the way some people tell stories verbally; they leave out major details when spoken and not written. That was a little disappointing. And based on personal experience, Max absolutely contradicts himself in the book, in regards to signing autographs and getting pictures with fans. What bothered me the most though, was that the book was plagued with typos, misspellings and numerous grammatical errors; at times I had to re-read sentences several times just to be sure I was understanding it correctly. And this isn't the way Max speaks, he speaks English very well. Lazy editing.

Despite the numerous flaws within this book, being a Cavalera fan, I did enjoy it. But I'd only recommend this book to Max Cavalera and Sepultura fans, I don't feel a non-fan would enjoy it very much.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Very unrevealing and you learn just as much from Wikipedia 18. Mai 2014
Von Virgos Merlot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Sepultura is one of my all time favorite bands. Chaos A.D., was definitely a game changer for me as a kid and I had the privilege to see that show in Pittsburgh and even meet Max briefly. When I read a biography of any musician, I find it insightful when they go deep and reveal a personal side that never previously surfaced out into the public or media interviews by being vocally self-critical of their work as an artist and person.

The story reads like a droning interview from Guitar World and he will have interviews from people that are obviously going to be biased towards Max as he did not get any interviews from Andreas or Paolo let alone how he hooked up with his now wife Gloria. Additionally, it's always interesting for a band to go into the financials, art work evolution, details of his road to recovery and random stories from his life. He did not get into any of those details and was kind of all over the place as the book read like e was using a text to speech app.

Honestly, I think Joel McIver twiddled his thumbs. More importantly, he glossed over the Sepultura break up - does he still get money from the usage of the band? What happened with the label details? Thoughts on their music without him? The details he provides are details you can find in Wikipedia. Very disappointed and this was almost as bad as the current half assed attempt for those other guys to still call themselves Sepultura but I won't go that far because the fact that they are still around is depressing.

A fan since 1991, I have bought and collected, sepultura, soulfly,nailbomb, cavalera conspiracy since those days. I never took a part on the 1997 split, I have learned more from Max's lyrics than from Coelho
5.0 von 5 Sternen If you're a Max Cavalera fan, this book is a must!! 21. November 2014

I absolutely love Max Cavalera. This book is well written and you can really get a sense of the high energy that Max displays. He obviously adores his family...and to top it off he has incredible talent. Max seems to truly enjoy touring and has multiple bands. I also like the fact that he is approachable rather than refusing to acknowledge his fan base. This man is one of a kind!!!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Dissapointing 20. März 2015
Von WMZPR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I want to start this review with the lamest possible preamble: I was 12 when Chaos AD hit the streets and that record changed my life - now being 34, I still regard myself as a huge metalhead (my music collection is about 1000 albums on different physical media). Roots is still a huge game-changer in my humble opinion, an album unsurpassed in so many ways. Max was my idol until 2nd Soulfly album. Needless to say, I waited for that book ever since Sepultura split in 1997. I kinda expected Max's book to be biased, but this is ridiculous..
First of all, I really can't imagine how battling alcohol and painkiller addiction for 20+ yrs didn't involve more dramatic events than stealing a bottle of booze from local store or breaking into friend's house.. OK, there was this thing with grandson's baptism, but really - that was it for 20 years?? He wants me to believe the it didn't influence his band in any kind? His family was oblivious of all that crap in his life until the last moment? Seriously doubting that.. All these changes in Soulfly's lineup were obviously not his fault, always the other guys'... Hope his own son can make it longer than previous guys.
The guy who claims to be such a spiritual (religious perhaps?) person was not able to talk to his own brother for 10 yrs because of the other guy's wife? And he claims he doesn't know what Sepultura was doing ever since they split... I will probably be lynched for that, but for me Nation, Dante XXI or A-lex were musically and lyrically far more interesting than any Soulfly's album (hence I didn't buy any of Soulfly's album after the first one...). He says he's oblivious of that, of his own brother's 10 yearsof work... Wow.
To top it all, that praising choir of his own children and grandchildren - how lame is that?? What's the point of introducing other people in 'autobiography' if they only say how amazing father he is (and I am not saying that he isn't just saying that I don't see a point of introducing these opinions there). Very objective, top-notch journalism...
Max ends the 'book' with saying that he's always 'extreme', kinda 'all or nothing' guy - it shows in this book, unfortunately this creation of his is on the 'nothing' side in my opinion...
I don't exactly know what was the input of Joel McIver, but the book is written and edited like it was basically word-for-word transcript from a dictaphone. Some minor and major typos here and there, grammar errors and other crap ('my life revolved 360 degrees' - that's full circle, you end up where you were before... you were going for 180 degrees).
Very disappointing read, one thin which kinda saves that book is the part about childhood and early years - I think that may even be close to what really happened (although more input from Iggor and their Mother would probably be beneficial). Hence two stars, not one...

Recently I also read a truly amazing bio of another musical god of mine - Peter Steele of TON. I am pretty sure that this one is giving you more realistic view at metal artist life: the dream-come-true phase, the downfall, endless rehabs, battling demons in his head... Save yourself some money - buy a good book, better read about Peter Steele's life.
