Max was getting into photography at the time Zyon was coming to Earth. He was buying several types of lenses, colored lenses, and cameras. He took the photo in the inlay of the cd case of Roots and after that, many pics for various Soulfly releases.

In the days of Nailbomb, I will admit Max was sufficiently floating from alcohol. He usually just holed up at home or in the back room of the bus, and visited oblivion. This state did have its artistic moments and a live stage presence of it's own, with many surprises! One such day in the studio, Alex called me and said Max had driven wasted and was smashed and blasted in the studio. I tried to reason with Max, but a fifth of rum later, there was just no point. Thank God the tape was rolling when he blurted out his famous one liner....Feels good to be a punk loser!

He was also lucky to get some nice studio shots of recording. I am sure he was looking through the lens with a different sort of glasses on, than anyone else in the studio! Nailbomb lasted through eternity and never became a dated album. At the same time, it's life was short... There are only so many photos of this creation, this ultimate hate project. Cockroaches live longer...

Class dismissed...
