Underground icon, extreme metal trailblazer, third world warrior, and leader of a diverse and dedicated tribe, Max Cavalera not only survives but thrives, blasting out riff after killer riff. The same voice, body, and spirit which launched SOULFLY in 1997 summons impossibly heavy noise to this day. Max promises to throw down ten slabs of monstrous music on the band’s upcoming twelfth album, Totem which will be released on August 5th via Nuclear Blast.
Max Cavalera is not afraid to keep it in the family, and why wouldn’t he be when they’re as talented as they are. He just announced his upcoming Beneath the Remains/Arise tour with his brother Iggor. Last year, he released the debut album for Go Ahead And Die with son Igor Amadeus Cavalera. Now, Max is backing it up by releasing the next SOULFLY with his other son Zyon Cavalera who has contributed as both the drummer since 2012 and writing partner. Max comments:
“Totem is a celebration of the spiritual nature. It was a 2-year journey writing with Zyon. This album is about all the joy, the fun, and the anger in Metal.”
As a taste of what’s to come, the band has just offered the tribe the first taste of the album with the single, Superstition. Check out the lyric video below, created by Aimed & Framed alongside 3D character artist, Álvar Gómez Padilla.
