My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura to Soulfly and beyond - The Autobiography Reviews
This is a tale of a man who loves what he does and the people he does it with - throughout this book, beyond the story and the characters, you will feel Max's passion jumping at you. His style of writing coincides with the way he composes: in bursts that hit you hard, in intense waves that can be tough to follow if you are looking for seamless structure, but with an unrivaled intensity that keeps you smiling.
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'.
for some reason I was expecting something meaty from Max but this is a standard autobio. It feels like he is keeping something hidden. Great photos and some info I never knew before (Michael Whelan is a fan?).
Its simple and it tells the story without fanfare and fake rock and roll glorifications. Its raw and I was done before I knew it. Feels like straight talk.
A gift for my son, he just got it, but was very excited, and started reading it right away.
Great insight into not only Sepultura but also Max himself. Great stories and approach to everything in his life, good and bad. Another great biography!
Awesome book. Ive been on a soulfly kick lately so that made it even better. A lot of insight to the break up of sepultura and also all of the unique world music and musicians max incorporates in soulfly.
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!!!
