Metal will Take Place!"

05/24/2018 White Oak Music Hall - Houston, TX The unquenchable fire of inspiration consuming Max Cavalera has blessed the world with arguably the most prolific lifelong achievements in urgent, primal, gut-wrenching, and unapologetically transcendental extreme metal. To commune with the dark muse of heavy music’s shamanistic tribal leader is to envelop oneself inside some sort of post-modern sweat lodge. Brutal riffs, trippy esoteric summoning, unrelenting percussiveness, and diverse world music: whatever Max Cavalera hammers out on his four-string signature ESP, it always sets souls free.
Cavalera is an eternal innovator and also heavy metal’s most efficient sponge, soaking up all of the genre’s historical strengths and cutting edge modern interpretations and reshaping them to deliver something unmistakably, singularly his own. »Archangel« invokes Old Testament fire-and-brimstone and New Testament crucifixion/resurrection with an equal devotion, study and musical pilgrimage into the rich history of the magic-obsessed and supernaturally instinctual meditations of pre-civilized people. This is all woven together into a tapestry brimming with death metal as punishingly pulverizing as BEHEMOTH and BELPHEGOR and fierce as vintage SLAYER.
Between his work with SOULFLY, KILLER BE KILLED, NAILBOMB, and SEPULTURA, Cavalera has worked with nearly every A-list rock producer on the planet and Archangel is no exception: Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM) helped craft SOULFLY’s most daring, exciting, and creative record yet. Fittingly for such a monumental band’s tenth full-length release, Archangel is adorned with a brilliant cover image from Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM), a neo-classical/post-modern mishmash of Biblical triumph and talismans of SOULFLY’s past, present, and future.
Like all innovative heroes from any musical genre, SOULFLY crafts anthems for the people. SOULFLY’s tenth studio album is both a celebration of Max Cavalera’s continuing legacy and a brand new masterwork to champion in clubs, theaters, and festival stages across the globe. SOULFLY songs like 'Back To The Primitive,' 'Prophecy,' and 'Eye For An Eye' have become every bit as important to the metal community as 'Refuse/Resist' or 'Territory.'
Bursting forth with the perspective, hunger, energy, and determination that can only be forged by three decades as a heavy metal community organizer and champion, »Archangel« is yet another brutal, vibrant, extreme, uplifting, and unashamedly spiritual entry into the SOULFLY canon.
