Conspiracy Theories with Cavalera Conspiracy

Cavalera Conspiracy, the group starring both Iggor and Max Cavalera, will deliver their fourth album, Psychosis, on November 17. Underneath the music, Pyschosis is laced with themes of terror and war, which relates to one of guitarist/vocalist Max Cavalera’s other interests: conspiracy theories.

Decibel got in touch with the Cavalera Conspiracy frontman to hear what he believes are five of the most important conspiracy theories.


Because of the phone call my wife received prior to the attack on the World Trade Center, I believe firmly that it was a governmental, inside job, to instill fear in people and spy into people’s privacy. With tools like the Patriot Act, TSA and Homeland Security, people have lost the right to privacy.

Gloria Cavalera spoke to Decibel regarding the phone call. She claims that she received a voicemail from an anonymous individual on the morning of September 11, 2001 who told her about the past, present and future of our world, including 9/11 and the massive debt the United States would accrue. Gloria says she brought this information to the FBI and multiple news sources, yet it has been virtually ignored. Her investigation of the alleged phone call led her to book the 2002 Static X/Soulfly tour. You can read the entire account on her blog.

The Assassination of JFK

This is a classic cover up. Even the Warren Commission and their “magic bullet theory” doesn’t add up. I believe the CIA was involved. I believe there was a second shooter, and they pinned it on Oswald. That’s why they killed him before he could talk.

The Iraq War

I think this was a fake war, invented by President Bush to take control of the Iraqi oil fields. They never found any WMDs, and suicide bombings skyrocketed. I feel that the killing of Saddam Hussein made it possible for groups like ISIS to grow and spread fear through the Middle East. It made an opening in leadership and created a power struggle. Many people associated with Bush got rich, especially the providers of weaponry, uniforms, tanks, etc.

The [2016] US election

I believe Russia was involved in hacking the election, spreading fake news (propaganda) through social media, and the American people. I think Hillary Clinton was robbed of the Presidency. I feel Trump is a racist, a sexist and an ignorant person who cares only about billionaires and lacks any form of compassion. He deeply divided America and gave the opportunity for Nazi groups to emerge.

President Tancredo [Neves]’s election and murder

He was the first President of Brazil who truly was against corruption. He was going to make a lot of changes in the politics of Brazil. He was elected and after one day as President, he had a sudden illness and died in the hospital. I believe he was murdered by the government.
