Max Cavalera is the walking embodiment of creative energy, of all of the diverse layers of urgency that are possible from that select few whose artistic output defines genres. Mystic shaman, protest singer, revolutionary hero, everyday metalhead, furious consumer of heavy music of all shades, husband, father, leader, songwriter… Cavalera reigns as the adoptive tribal chief of a generation of fans, stretching from the roughest slums of South America to the coldest confines of Russia. Anywhere that people are disenfranchised, the songs of SOULFLY serve as their anthems.
Ever since the band's gold-certified debut in 1998, SOULFLY have become deadlier and more dangerous with each critically acclaimed successive release, and the 2013 released album »Savages« is no exception. »Savages« melds the most brutal, the heaviest and overall the most vibrant components that made up each record in SOULFLY’s diverse catalog. By Max’s own account, »Savages« is possessed of the tribal groove of the first two SOULFLY albums. Armed with Cavalera’s four-stringed guitars, unmistakable growl and instantly recognizable riffage, the muddy tones and constant rhythmic bounce of SOULFLY has retained its gritty edge while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in metal.
On August 2015, SOULFLY released their 10th studio album, »Archangel«. »Archangel« marked something of a rebirth. Its extreme tendencies engendered unanimous critical praise from the likes of Loudwire, Metalsucks, Metalinjection, Blabbermouth, and more as they toured with SOILWORK, DECAPITATED, and many others.
During 2018, Max and Co. began to prepare their latest body of work, »Ritual«, which lives up to the promise of its name with a metallic ceremony of the highest order.
