As Cavalera Conspiracy, the band helmed by brothers and Sepultura founders Igorr and Max Cavalera, issues their new album today, we also get this. This is, of course, the powerfully fierce new official video for the song “Spectral War“, a track from today’s Napalm Record‘s release, “Psychosis“.

The visualizer was directed by famed tattoo artist Paul Booth and features scenes of warfare from throughout the ages and occult imagery. Says Max Cavalera: “Our new video “Spectral War” was directed by the great tattoo artist, Paul Booth. It focuses on the idea of manipulating war through the ages! I’m very excited for the release of “Psychosis!” Death/Thrash Metal is back to set the world on fire!!!”

Psychosis drops today, November 17th, and is the fourth installment from the siblings Cavalera. Joining them on the latest effort is guitarist Marc Rizzo (Soulfly, ex-Ill Nino) and Arthur Rizk (bass, synth). The Thrash Metal masters dive deep into the mire of human panic and anxiety states and provide the soundtrack to your worst sickness, a most sinister psychological ailment indeed.
