According to Interia.pl, the Polish-language edition of “My Bloody Roots”, the autobiography of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SEPULTURA, NAILBOMB), will be made available on October 2 through the Kagra publishing house.
Already available in Max‘s native Brazil, “My Bloody Roots”, written by Cavalera with assistance from renowned British author Joel McIver, was translated by Bartosz Donarski (who also translated “Slash”, “Pearl Jam Twenty”, “Lords Of Chaos”, “Swedish Death Metal” and “Choosing Death: The Improbable History Of Death Metal & Grindcore”, among others), a contributor to well-known Polish magazine Mystic Art, former perennial DJ of the longest-running metal radio show in Poland “Thrashing Madness”, and editor of the major Polish Internet portal Interia.pl.
“My Bloody Roots”‘ foreword was written by Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, ex-NIRVANA), who was’ “really thrilled” to do it, Max said in an interview. “Dave‘s always been a great guy,” Cavalera added. “He used to come to see SEPULTURA play in Seattle every time we played; even after NIRVANA got big, he would still come and see us play in little clubs.” Among other musicians who were interviewed for Max‘s autobiography were Ozzy Osbourne, Chino Moreno of the DEFTONES, Tom Araya of SLAYER and Mike Patton of FAITH NO MORE.
