Since Max Cavalera and his brother Igor left Sepultura, they’ve been quite busy with other projects, but the question has always remained, when will there be a reunion of the classic members? Well, for fans, the bad news is that it may never happen. Max recently went on the Australian 24/7 rock and metal radio station hosted by Andrew Haug, and talked for awhile about a potential reunion. The conversation was mostly brought up by Igor’s recent comments to Metal Wani, where he said:
"I hope so, but there's nothing solid. The only solid thing right now, it's what I do with Max, and it's Cavalera Conspiracy. Like, the whole Sepultura thing, it's something that we don't know if it's gonna happen or not. To be honest, I really hope one day we can do this in a very cool way."
Here’s the full interview with Igor:
So, one part of the original Septulura is hopeful, but Max talked in a more pessimistic way about the whole thing in response to Igor’s comment, saying:

"I was actually kind of surprised, 'cause I thought the topic kind of died out. I actually lost all kinds of hope for it. Honestly, today, I don't see it happening, just because of how our lives are and how those guys' [the other members of Sepultura's classic lineup] lives are; it's a pretty different world. We live in completely different worlds from those guys. And I think it's not the same. It won't be the same. The magic is gone. And I don't think a reunion would be the best thing for Sepultura. I honestly don't think it would. I kind of prefer [for] it to stay like this and leave the memory how it was."
"It was a great band [that] did great stuff. I'm proud of the records [I made with Sepultura]. And you can go to YouTube and check out all the old videos and how great it was, and kind of leave it like that. And then [we can] do other stuff — like Killer Be Killed and Cavalera Conspiracy and Soulfly — that we are plenty busy with."
Here’s the audio for the interview:
Well, that’s pretty much that. Maybe one day we can all be surprised by a classic lineup reunion for Sepultura, but for right now, the magic eight ball says outlook isn’t so good
