It was only a couple of months ago when the Cavalera brothers (Max and Iggor) announced the “Return Beneath Arise” tour that would celebrate classics from the band they formed so long ago – Sepultura. If you missed that announcement just click HERE for that. Now the news is the bands addition of Mike Leon and Daniel Gonzalez to the touring lineup. Read more down below.

The Press Release:
“Beneath The Remains/Arise tour is coming! Introducing on bass guitar, thrashing and blasting bass beast Mike Leon (Soulfly) and on lead guitar, state of the art, death/thrash expert, Daniel Gonzalez (Possessed/Gruesome). We’re gonna take these songs to the Metal world in the most brutal way ever! Under a pale gray sky, we shall Arise.” – Max Cavalera

“We can only count with the illest players to step on stage with me and Max to play Beneath/Arise. So getting Dan Gonzalez from Possessed/Gruesome and Mike Leon from Soulfly was an amazing choice!… Can’t wait to hit the road!” – Iggor Cavalera

“I am super excited to be a part of the revival of these classic albums with the brothers that created them, it is a great honor! These shows are gonna CRUSH, and I’m sure that we are gonna deliver these songs better than they have ever been played before to everyone who joins us! See you on the road!” – Mike Leon

“It would be an understatement to say that I am incredibly stoked and honored to be able to play with Max and Iggor, and the fact that we’ll be playing material from Beneath The Remains and Arise is beyond surreal to me since I grew up worshiping those albums. Max and Iggor helped change the standards of extreme Metal and those albums are still living proof of that. It’s insane to me as a fan and as a musician to be able to play these songs live, and I can’t wait to do them justice!!!” – Daniel Gonzalez

Celebrate with original founding members of influential heavy metal legends and RIAA Gold-Certified Sepultura. Max & Iggor Cavalera will perform a hybrid setlist exclusively of cuts from these two iconic albums Beneath the Remains and Arise. This tour runs throughout the United States in May and June of 2022.

Since Sepultura’s formation over 30 years ago, the Cavalera brothers have each seen unparalleled success in the music industry. Max’s more recent work with Soulfly, Go Ahead And Die, Cavalera Conspiracy (also featuring Iggor) and Killer Be Killed, in addition to Iggor’s projects MIXHELL, Petbrick, and Soulwax, proves the lasting power of the Cavalera legacy.

It’s safe to say that the releases of Beneath The Remains (1989) and Arise (1991) completely changed the landscape of metal music throughout the world.

Max Cavalera states “After Covid-19 us Metal Heads need to release our aggression with some Beneath The Remains and Arise!” Iggor Cavalera adds “Can’t wait to perform our “Return Beneath Arise” Tour for our North American fans. See you in the Pit!!!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t have much to add since the first announcement which was linked in my introduction but I will say that I think both of these players will bring a proper level of excitement to an already exciting tour project. I’ve seen Leon for years in Soulfly and while Gonzalez is new to my adventuring I am sure that he will bring it on each and every night. As I pointed out I am hoping to be present for the Gramercy Theatre appearance when it happens. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about this updated news and wondering if you will be planning on attending. You can chime in down below in the comments section if you’ve got something topical to add to the mix. I will see you again soon, please stay safe out thee my friends. Cheers.
