Produced by frontman, Max Cavalera and mixed by champion knob-twiddler Terry Date (Deftones), ‘Soulfly 3’ features a blend of sounds; mellow and soulful, tribal and yet somehow thunderous, hardcore and chaotic.
Basically, all those things you’ve come to expect from Brazilian-born Cavalera and cohorts. While the album retains the traditional rage and high energy Soulfly is known for, especially on tracks like ‘Downstroy’, ‘Seek ‘N’ Strike’ and ‘Sangue De Barrio’, their LP, ‘Soulfly – 3’ also unleashes some uncharacteristically mellow fare in the form of songs like ‘Tree Of Pain’, ‘Interlude’ and ‘Soulfly 3’.
“For me the most important thing is to be honest and real. Whether I’m touching upon the delicate sound of ‘Soulfly 3’ or I’m touching the f*ck you attitude of ‘Call To Arms’, the most important thing is that I am being very true to the last very drop of each song. It’s what I believe, and that’s it. And I think that’s the main thing that I keep alive when I’m writing is honesty, to write the thing that I feel the most. Like it or not, agree or not, that’s how I feel and that’s how it’s gonna be. Every album needs to be different. I think that’s what makes Soulfly interesting, isn’t it. We don’t try to repeat the same things all the time” said Max when he spoke to a webpage a week back.
