Soulfly

Upon his exit from Sepultura in late 1996, singer/guitarist/songwriter Max Cavalera almost automatically set out to form his next musical endeavor, the ultra-heavy Soulfly. Besides leaving one of the most popular heavy metal bands in the world, which he'd co-founded in the early '80s, he also had to deal with the unsolved murder of Dana Wells, his stepson and best friend. Using music as therapy to overcome his depression, Cavalera put together a band that included Roy "Rata" Mayorga on drums (ex-Thorn) and Jackson Bandeira on second guitar (ex-Chico Science), while former Sepultura roadie Marcello D. Rapp rounded out the quartet on bass. Their self-titled debut album was released in the spring of 1998. Besides fronting Soulfly, Cavalera has branched out into other areas usually not associated with heavy metal musicians. He became a much sought-after speaker at music conventions, as evidenced by his appearances at CMJ's New Music Marathon in New York and Holland's Crossing Border Festival, both in late 1997. He also guested on Deftones' breakthrough album, Around the Fur, and signed on to sing a TV commercial for Sprite in his native land of Brazil.

Soulfly's second album, Primitive, was released in the fall of 2000. The album was met with a split reaction, and Cavalera found himself the object of criticism from factions of his fan base. The heavy amount of guest appearances and his preference toward nu-metal lyrics were the main complaints, but Cavalera maintained pride in his work and kept going, hitting the road and touring behind the album. He handled the production for 2002's III, and Soulfly returned again in 2004 with Prophecy. A year later, Roadrunner reissued their self-titled first album as part of the label's 25th anniversary celebration. Soulfly's fifth album, Dark Ages, appeared in October 2005. Continuing his habit of switching up the lineup, Cavalera was backed this time out by bassist Bobby Burns, guitarist Marc Rizzo (ex-Ill Niño), and drummer Joel Nunez, who had previously played on Primitive.

In 2007 Cavalera began collaborating with brother and former Sepultura drummer Igor on a project called Cavalera Conspiracy. The duo made its live debut that August as the opening act for Soulfly, and went on to release an album, Inflikted, for Roadrunner in 2008. Soulfly's sixth full-length offering, Conquer, arrived in July 2008 and was quickly followed by 2009's Omen. After the release of their seventh album, the band went through a sting of lineup changes. The first came in 2010 when bassist Bobby Burns announced he was leaving the band; he was replaced the following year by former Ministry bassist Tony Campos. Drummer Joe Nunez also left the band, and was replaced by Borknagar's David Kinkade shortly before Soulfly went into the studio with producer Zeuss to begin work on new material that would eventually become their eighth album, Enslaved, which was released in 2012.

Throughout that year the band toured their own "Maximum Cavalera" package tour featuring three bands all fronted by members of the Cavalera family -- Soulfly, Incite, and Lody Kong. Drummer Kinkade left the band in 2012, announcing his retirement from performance. For the next album, the band moved from their longtime home of Roadrunner Records to Nuclear Blast, and Cavalera's youngest son Zyon took over on drums. The effort, entitled Savages, was produced by Terry Date and released in October 2013. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Got wasted in the Disney parking lot and got kicked from the Cavalara Conspiracy show before they went on...idiot!
@Thomas has a point. Cant we all just get along? Its because of the infectious wave of ignorance that manages to grow through our generations. I think we need to stop being led by misled generations already. Its getting old
My band Conceived in Chaos opened up for these guys last july in Sacramento. F**king amazing show.

Jump the f**k up!!!
Max's lyrical content in the 1st and 2nd Soulfly albums in particular, although heavily criticized as mentioned in the bio, inspired many metal heads to embrace a greater degree of unity then ever previously seen in the metal community. I never quite understood why so much dissension existed, & still does in metal. The presence of negativity & judgement is so unnecessary. We should all embrace Max's philosophy more. "My tribe, your tribe, our tribe!" Unity under the banner of metal. Enough separ
max is the best

I got to see them open up for Panters and Slayer way back in the day! That was by far one of my favorite shows I've been to and I've been to some awesome shows! My first concert ever was Pink Floyd touring for The Division Bell tour when I was 10 or 11, too bad I'd only started smoking green by then and hadn't tried hallucinogen s
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
@ ianddethlord 6 6 6 i hear you man, you hit the nail on the head with that comment!!
At least I can still hear half the old Sepultura sound. I like Soulfly, but I really miss the Kisser element that it now lacks ( and visa versa w/the new Sepultura sound ). I wish they'd just f**king kiss and make up.
Soulfly freaking rocks! I remember seeing them live years ago, good times.
abelstrd
I agree with McTague!
4 out of 5, similiar artists are nu-metal. I love nu-metal. Shows that thrash people need to have wider horizons.

Love this f**king band! Max Cavalera rules.
Among the greatest heavy metal God's of all time. Max and his gang.
I don't get why this columnist is saying Primitive got a lot of hate. If in fact it did, that's a shame because that's easily my favorite Soulfly album. Although, I have missed out on the last few. What, do they come out with one every few months now? Times are tough for everyone. Slow it down, Max. It's about quality, not quantity.
Soulfly rules
Enslaved is brutal \m/
no more redneck bullshit!!!! ! !
pain is f**kin' brutal!!!!!! !

MAX CAVALERA NASTY!! ENOUGH SAID!!
Max is Max , best voice 4 trash metal
MAXIE PAD
Cavalera Conspiracy and Nailbomb need to be done with, Soulfly is the sh*t, his other projects are just crap.
Why didn't Nailbomb do more?
Laddy go pimp your crap band elsewhere.

Love this stuff. Max is the man.
Jumpdafukup Soulfly rocks. Do have a correction it's not "Joel Nunez" its "Joe"
READY AIM FIRE!
f**k yeah....
Seen'em live at the 420 Harvest, there the s**t.
Max is the alpha and the omega....jus t listened to Omen for the 1st time.....has great old school sound, best since Soulfly. Max=lyrics of mass destruction. The original Soulfly album is still the best, in my opinion.
crazyc1333
If Ozzy is the god of metal then Max is surely the F-ing holy ghost.
As far as identical albums....Is n ' t that why we all hate metallica now...hmmm because they changed
Keep on rocking Max.
ubertristan
Any song Max comes out with is good s**t. I don't see why people b**ch about everything. not all Soulfly albums are the same. They're f**king boss.
Omen is badarse!
Sepultura!!! !
well I gotta say....OMEN sounds better to me than the last 2 or 3 releases.... . . a t least upon first impression.

Rise of the fallen is a bad f**kin tune.
