From the prophetic to the apocalyptic, Soulfly never ceases to amaze. Their 2004 opus, “Prophecy” [Roadrunner Records], is the best since their debut. Soulfly creates Tribal Death Thrash with a modern Metal edginess.
Max Cavalera‘s (ex-Sepultura, Nailbomb) vocals are sharp and acidic… a powerful combination of yells and growls with an explosive fury. Intense, hook-driven instrumentals with Industrial and acoustic elements propel this pulverizing assault of gut-ripping hostility. Soulfly is both crushing and catchy. It’s a sound of pure, massive energy.
The most killer of these eviscerating cuts includes the smashing assault of “Execution Style,” “Living Sacrifice,” the acoustic number “Soulfly IV,” and the burning rage of “Born Again Anarchist.” Soulfly is incredibly cool.
Overall, Soulfly is still a killer act with an innovative spirit. Max never disappoints…. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. War.
