Ritual Carnage with SOULFLY

“We’re very excited man”, enthused Max Cavallera on Soulfly‘s upcoming album, Ritual, set to be unleashed on October 19. “It’s our 11th album and it’s got some really cool things on it. It’s a little bit of a return to the tribal grooves with some recording with the Navajo Indians and a lot of fast and aggressive stuff also. It’s a jam packed record full of excitement and I’m very happy. So far we’ve got three songs out there, “Evil Empowered”, “Ritual” and “Dead Behind the Eyes” but I can’t wait for people to hear the whole thing.”

In the full interview Max discussed the album in-depth, running through a selection of songs from the album including his collaboration with Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe, the title and it’s significance, the return of more tribal elements, the importance of having his son Zyon play on drums, where he gets his anger and aggression still, an Australian tour and more.
