Metal icons Soulfly, who were founded by the legendary frontman and guitarist Max Cavalera, have released the lyric video for Bloodshed, which is taken from their upcoming album Savages as the first single. The lyric video, which can be viewed below, was created by Tommy Antonini, who is the guitarist for Italian post-hardcore unit Tasters.

The song, Bloodshed, features Cavalera’s son Igor on guest vocals, who has already played with the band on their recent run of European dates. Commenting onBloodshed, Max said the following:

The song is about the absurdity of the human condition in territories plagued by bloodshed all over the world. Not just recent events like Iraq, but also historical conflicts such as the U.S. Civil War, World Wars I and II, etc.

Savages is due for release via Nuclear Blast on 30th September. The artwork was created by renowned artist Paul Stottler, who is best known for Sacred Reich’s legendary Surf Nicaragua cover. Produced, engineered and mixed by renowned sound guru Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, White Zombie), Savages will be released as a limited edition digpack CD, 2LP vinyl and digital download. Guest vocal appearances on Savages include bass player Tony Campos, Max Cavalera‘s son Igor Cavalera (Lody Kong), Clutch‘s Neil Fallon, Napalm Death‘s Mitch Harris and Jamie Hanks of I Declare War fame.

Soulfly release first video update for upcoming studio album

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 9th July 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Soulfly have posted their first video update for their upcoming untitled ninth studio album. The album was produced by Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, Soudngarden) and is the first album to feature Max Cavalera’s 21 year old son, Zyon, on drums. The video update can be viewed below.

As if there was a more metal way to come into the world, Zyon’s heartbeat in utero served as the intro to Sepultura’s 1993 classic RIAA-gold-certified record Chaos A.D. Max would depart Sepultura soon after the release of Roots in 1996. Ever since the band’s gold-certified debut in 1998, Soulfly have become deadlier and more dangerous with each critically acclaimed successive release, and their upcoming album will be no exception. Expect a release tentatively in the Fall of this year via Nuclear Blast.
