2012 will see the release of Enslaved, a brand new SOULFLY album, which will be their eighth overall. 2012 also marks the band’s 15th anniversary of the band.
The lineup features Max and guitar dynamo Marc Rizzo, with STATIC-X’s Tony Campos taking up the bass. The lineup is rounded out by ex-BORKNAGAR drummer David Kinkade.
Enslaved was recorded at Tallcat Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and was produced by Zeuss and Max Cavalera.
SOULFLY also collaborates with Dez Fafara of DEVILDRIVER and Travis Ryan of CATTLE DECAPITATION. Ryan said it was “an honor to receive a call from someone you had pictures of on your wall as a kid.”
Cavalera also wrote a song “Revengeance” about his slain stepson Dana, whose death was the catalyst for the creation of SOULFLY. He partners with his sons Igor and Richie on vocals, while his other son Zyon plays drums. It is the first time Max has performed with three of his sons.
