SOULFLY’s latest album, Archangel. was produced and mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM), and features stunning cover artwork of artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM). It also includes a slew of guests including Todd Jones (NAILS), Matt Young (KING PARROT), Richie Cavalera (INCITE), Igor Cavalera (LODY KONG), and Anahid (M.O.P.).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve always been more of the casual observer to the Metal machinations of Max Cavalera and Soulfly but that doesn’t mean I am not willing to throw it down in the mosh pit with the rest of you crazy Metalheads (which you can translate as actually standing off to the side of you all doing some head-banging and raising of horns). This is a package that will surely pack a massive punch because it features Long Island’s own Metal force of nature Suffocation and a crowd favorite Battlecross. Now I’ve never seen Abnormality but I did enjoy what Lody Kong did when I caught them about a year ago so this should be one of those tours where its more than worth your effort in seeing every single band. That’s a Maximum Metal Monetary point right there so perhaps I will head out to the island where they will be performing since that is the closest we shall get. What do you readers think of this one? Are you excited? Let me know in the comments section.
