Max Cavalera Cuts Off The Dreadlock He’s Grown For 20+ Years

Gloria Cavalera has shared a photo of her husband’s new dreadlock-less hair…

So many bizarre things have happened this year (too many to count, in fact) – but few have been as surprising as Max Cavalera opting for a makeover and chopping off his trademark dreadlock.

The Soulfly/Sepultura legend has been sporting this signature hairstyle for over two decades now, but as of October 19, the colossal dread is no more.

Max’s wife Gloria shared a photo on Instagram of her husband’s new locks without its huge mono-dread, joking that, It must be snowing in hell today!” In the comments, she responded that Max has had this iconic look for 20+” years.

Other social media users were equally as shocked, with one follower stating, These dreads deserve to be in a museum.” (We agree.) Elsewhere, several people seemed to think that the cut-off hair that Gloria is holding up in the photo is an animal”. Ha!

In a 2011 interview with MyTicket, Max revealed the secret to his wild hair: Just leave it there, and it grows, and leave it alone. I wash it. It’s clean. I did find food one time. I opened one of them up and found some macaroni or cheese or rice. I think my wife was going through the dreads and [she said], There’s some food in here, right?’ A stash from tour. But, yeah, I just let it grow. I’ve been growing it since 1997. That’s when I started. I never stopped.” 

He added that he’s heard rumours before that he gave it the chop: Sometimes fans come to me and say, Hey, man, let me see your dreads. Oh, they’re still there. I heard that you cut it off.’ ”

In less, er, hairy news, Killer Be Killed – the supergroup featuring Max, Ben Koller (Converge/Mutoid Man), Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan/The Black Queen) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon/Gone Is Gone) – will be releasing their new album Reluctant Hero on November 20 via Nuclear Blast.
