Sepultura‘s 1994 show at the Event Center at San Jose State University featured, among a handful of other kickass songs, then-Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo getting on stage with the band to cover “Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing” by Discharge. Check that out as well as performance of “Biotech Is Godzilla” which Max Cavalera dedicated to Dead Kennedys vocalist Jello Biafra. The footage comes from the YouTube channel fromthenosebleeds, which you can check out here.
Of course two years later, Cavalera would leave the band. In a recent interview, Cavalera said it was his own decision to leave the band despite fan theories that his wife Gloria Cavalera played a part in things.
“It’s really mixed emotions, especially because me and Igor being there in the very, very beginning, and nobody that is in the band [now] was there — not even [bassist Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr.] was there in the very beginning. So it’s something that feels really personal and sacred that you were there in the very beginning and now you’re not. At the same time, it’s one of those things in life that just happens and you’ve gotta move on with other things.”
“I don’t regret it. It’s like any thing — it ran its course. One of those things, though, I’ll say this, it’s extremely frustrating to me that some of the fans don’t understand, and it’s really easy to blame people for it. And a lot of people end up blaming my wife, Gloria. They always go, ‘She broke up the band.’ And the truth is we grew apart; we started hating each other, man. It happened to The Beatles and it happened to many other bands — Pantera. It’s just how it is. We just didn’t find the joy in playing with each other anymore and it was time to move on. So it’s a cheap shot to blame her: ‘Let’s just blame her. She’s gotta be the reason why that happened.’ And it’s, like, no — not at all. We are the reason. I’d rather they blame me than her or somebody else. Blame me for Sepultura splitting up. I would much rather prefer that.”
