Max Cavalera, guitarist and frontman of Soulfly, recently revealed some new information about the band’s upcoming record – including a title.
Archangel, Soulfly’s tenth studio album, will be put out on Nuclear Blast this upcoming August. The band is reportedly wrapping up vocals and mixing, as well as waiting on some finalized album artwork. Cavalera explains:
“It’s an interesting record. It’s very epic, mystic kind of Soulfly record that we don’t really do every day. It’s one of those that come out once in a lifetime, an album like that comes out — really crazy sounds and very different dimensions. It’s more experimental than the other stuff. It’s still heavy as hell, and it’s still fast. And Zyon‘s playing drums on it. He’s actually playing really good. He reminds me of a young Dave Lombardo. The fills that he’s doing… really amazing; he surprised everybody in the studio. Matt Hyde is producing; he worked with Slayer before. So it’s really cool; a really good team.”
