MAX CAVALERA Says SEPULTURA Guys Didn't Like 'A Clockwork Orange' Movie

January 16, 2009

Former SEPULTURA and current SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY frontman Max Cavalera has told Eleanor Goodman of U.K.'s Bizarre magazine that he wasn't aware the upcoming SEPULTURA album "A-Lex" is based on "A Clockwork Orange" — a film that inspired CAVALERA CONSPIRACY's debut, "Inflikted".

"It's just funny, because those guys don't really like 'A Clockwork Orange'!" he is quoted as saying. "I can remember watching that shit, and they were like, 'What's that stupid thing you're watching?' Even my brother [former SEPULTURA and current CAVALERA CONSPIRACY drummer Igor Cavalera] didn't like it that much — my mom hated that movie, which was probably why I liked it so much…"

"A-Lex" uses words from Anthony Burgess' original book and Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation alongside passages of classical music, while "Inflikted" – released last March – has a track called "Ultra-Violent" that features the language of the characters.

Despite the overlap in subject, Max says he"ll give "A-Lex" a shot. "Yeah, I listen to all sorts of stuff all the time, so I'll check it out," he said.
