Soulfly Offer Stream of Entire ‘Savages’ Album
Interested in some new Cavalera chaos? Then good news! Soulfly's ninth studio album, 'Savages,' is set for an Oct. 8 release, but you can stream the entire album right now via Metal Hammer.
'Savages' features a ton of cameos by rock and metal royalty across the spectrum. Clutch singer Neil Fallon co-wrote and appears on the track 'Ayatollah of Rock 'N' Rolla,' which could be a reference to Fozzy singer and WWE wrestler Chris Jericho. Napalm Death guitarist Mitch Harris also contributed to 'Savages' with the song 'K.C.S.,' which he also co-wrote. Additionally, Igor Cavalera Jr. pumped out some vocals on 'Bloodshed' and Jamie Hanks of I Declare War co-write and his present in the track 'Fallen.'
"Recording 'Savages' was an amazing experience for me," frontman Max Cavalera recently told Rock Overdose. "I was so excited to work with Terry Date, whom I consider to be one of the best producers of all time. He has done some great records and we have been in contact for awhile since he mixed three Soulfly albums in the past. He came to see Soulfly whenever we played in Seattle, and we finally made it work that he would be the producer for 'Savages'.
Max continues, "My teammates were awesome. Marc [Rizzo, guitar] did some crazy guitar noises and we did a 'Mars Part Two' at the end of 'El Comegente'; it's very Led Zeppelin-influenced and Marc kicked some ass on it … I wrote 'El Comegente' with Tony Campos. It's in Portuguese and Spanish and it's about Vargas — a Venezuelan cannibal from the '80s. He is the Hannibal Lecter of the Andes. Crazy s---!"
