Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Well, this sounds a little bit crazy, but I kind of think all of my albums have colors. Soulfly 1 was green; Primitive was yellow or red; Three was like earth - brown; and Prophecy was gold. Dark Ages is black, you know - it's the dark one. See more »


Formed the band Cavalera Conspiracy with his brother Igor in 2007. See more »


Soft, slightly gravelly speaking voice and dark, gruff screaming singing voice.
