Metal icons Soulfly are set to release their devastating new album Ritual, on October 19 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Today, the band is pleased to reveal the first single from that soon to be landmark release. Check out "Evil Empowered", at youtu.be/HB7gYzoVUQw.
Pre-order SOULFLY's eleventh studio album Ritual, in various physical and digital formats at nuclearblast.com/soulfly-ritual.

Comments guitarist/vocalist Max Cavalera:
“I am really stoked to be working again with two of my favorite artists, Eliran Kantor and Marcelo Vasco! The Ritual artwork is very mystic and captures the vibe of the album perfectly. For this one, we really tried to retain the groove of early SOULFLY as well as my love for the heavy, fast stuff I’m into: like death and black metal and some hardcore. Working with Josh Wilbur for SOULFLY this time around has been amazing. He’s a huge fan and added a lot to the record. I would fight for the fast songs and he would always push me to add more groove. I think in the end we created a really cool mix of songs that covers a lot of ground in my career. Let the Ritual begin!”

Producer Josh Wilbur adds:
Before I had ever recorded a record, in my formidable years, Max released the holy trinity that was (at least to me) Chaos A.D., Roots, and Soulfly 1. I wanted to make a record that captured what I loved about those when I was growing up! Those records inspired me and introduced me to heavy metal. Fast forward to now and I was given the opportunity to make the record I wanted as an fan! So I set up some mics, recorded some riffs, we banged on some galvanized metal, roto toms, djembes, and anything else we could get, then I told Max to 'BRING DA SHIT'!"

Ritual was produced, recorded and mixed by Josh Wilbur (KILLER BE KILLED, LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA). Cover artwork was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM). Additional booklet art was handled by Marcelo Vasco Arts (SLAYER, HATEBREED, KREATOR), who also handled the package design. The album features multiple guests including Randy Blythe (Lamb of God) and Ross Dolan (Immolation).

Ritual track listing:
1. Ritual
2. Dead Behind The Eyes (feat. Randy Blythe)
3. The Summoning
4. Evil Empowered
5. Under Rapture (feat. Ross Dolan)
6. Demonized
7. Blood On The Street
8. Bite The Bullet
9. Feedback!
10. Soulfly XI

It's really nice to see a band being down to earth and not full of themselves.

Sounds pretty half assed. The last Cavalera Conspiracy was good though.

Indeed. Their modesty is commendable.

It's obviously a copy+paste from Nuclear Blast's website.

Okay, I'm going to stay far away from this if this is what the producer wanted Max to go for.

I'm assuming he meant to say 'formative'. Either way, no one should ever look at Roots and that Soulfly debut as any kind of life-changing albums.

I was so fixated on "holy trinity" in the same sentence as 'Roots' and the s/t that I didn't even notice that lmao.

I know that a lot of people would say either Schizophrena, Beneath The Remains or Arise but Nailbomb's Point Blank will always be my favorite Max Cavalera album!

Soulfly is a fun band, that single sounds like I thought it would, no surprise there.

Will give this one a listen. Cool stuff.

"Roots" was a milestone, and it did cause waves. No one can deny that. It is still the best example of "rap metal" to be released. That's an itch no other album can scratch, imo.

Every Deftones album post-Adrenaline is infinitely better than Roots.

I don't recall hearing any rapping on "Gore," but I've never delved deep into the Deftones.

"Roots" is rap-metal. I have seen it all.
