Max Cavalera On New Soulfly Album: “I Think It’s Gonna Be An Unpredictable Kind Of Record”

Max Cavalera was recently interviewed by Metal Wani and talked a bit about the next Soulfly album. According to him, the effort will be “like a return to some of the tribal sounds” and that he thinks “it’s gonna be an unpredictable kind of record.”

Cavalera said the following:

“I’m writing right now. When I was home before [the ‘Max & Iggor Cavalera Return To Roots’ European tour], I was writing a lot of riffs. So I’m just collecting riffs right now. This is the stage where… It’s very similar to [what] I do on every record — I normally just stack riffs, and those riffs will eventually turn into songs.”

He also added that it will be “like a return to some of the tribal sounds” of the bands’s early material:

“Some of the songs are more kind of like ‘Prophecy’, like [the first SOULFLY album] kind of vibe, which I think is really cool, and a lot of people, I think, are gonna be happy with that. So we’re gonna have that heavy sound with percussion on top of it. It’s gonna be great. And the other part of it is a continuation of the heavy stuff that I love, even some elements of different extreme music I listen to, like black metal and death metal and thrash metal and stuff like that that I always love and I have fun doing.”

He also said that he was “very inspired” by “Judas Pariah” off Cavalera Conspiracy’s latest album “Psychosis”:

“I think it was one of my favorite songs [on the latest CAVALERA disc] — and I wanna make more songs like this, so I’m probably gonna go have a couple of songs on the SOULFLY [album] that will be kind of like that, kind of black metal style together with the tribal. I think it’s cool. I think it’s gonna be an unpredictable kind of record.”

He further added the following when asked if it was the right time to go back to the tribal sound:

“I think we can expand that feeling more, because I don’t think it’s been fully explored yet — I think we can do more with it. It’s kind of like similar to what we did on ‘Psychosis’, [where we took] this death metal/thrash metal formula and we went in and picked it up and did it again with the sound of right now. And I think it’s cool to look at music… I like thinking of music like that — as something that you can approach older stuff and bring it to the now and make something cool out of it. And everything else is whatever happens in the studio. I have great musicians like Marc Rizzo. My son Zyon is gonna be great on this record. He’s become an amazing drummer; on [SOULFLY’s] NAILBOMB tour, he did amazing. It’s so fun to watch him play live — so much energy. And we have Mike Leon playing bass — he’s a great bass player. So it’s a very good SOULFLY lineup.”

Soulfly will hit the studio with producer Josh Wilbur in January.

Soulfly Planning To Hit The Studio With Producer Josh Wilbur In January

It looks like Soulfly are planning to hit the studio next month to work on a new album with producer Josh Wilbur. Max Cavalera told Backstage Axxess the following:

“I’m actually writing right now. I’m collecting the riffs right now and getting the ideas. We are already kind of booked for January with Josh Wilbur, the producer of Lamb Of God and Gojira and Killer Be Killed. I think he’ll be great for the Soulfly record; he’s a great producer.

I’m excited, because I think the album will have a little bit of a return to some tribal sounds that I haven’t done since ‘Prophecy‘. So that’ll be cool, to return to some of that. And then the rest of the album will be a continuation of ‘Archangel‘; a lot of people like ‘Archangel‘.

And, of course, I think that it will be also somehow influenced by ‘Psychosis‘, ’cause ‘Psychosis‘ was such a cool record that I’m sure that somewhere in the Soulfly record we’ll have the influence of that on top of it too. So it’ll be a really cool record to work on.”
