MAX - It was great, it was a bit of an experimental truck. We worked with some drum Loops, Iggor made a drum with a loop and put it in a sequence computer. We had a real heavy guitar riff going on top of it the we had Mike Patton, me and Jonathan Davis me and Mike had no lyrics we were just screaming gibberish but Jonathan wrote some lyrics it's a crazy track.
TM - You recorded an album Roots with a Brazilian tribe what inspired you to do that?
MAX - It started little by little and was an appreciation for our own roots and discovering the fact that we were this Brazilian metal band that we're from Brazil and that we're different from the rest of the world. With the album roots we decided to embrace our Origins and embrace our roots so to go inside our roots. The most unique and old the most unique and all Brazilian music is tribal music the music has been there for thousands of years.
