Max Cavalera Would Like To Reunite Soulfly’s Original Lineup For 2023 Anniversary Tour

During a recent interview with Metal Injection, Soulfly’s Max Cavalera expressed interest in reuniting the band’s original lineup to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album next year. The frontman said the following about that:

“I know next year is 25 years of Soulfly I. Hopefully we do something [to] celebrate that as well. I would like to even maybe play the whole record. It would be great. Maybe even get the original guys to do it – get [drummer Roy Mayorga, bassist Marcelo Dias, and guitarist Lúcio Oliviera], bring [Lúcio] out of Brazil to do this. It would be amazing.”

Soulfly Share Animated Video For New Song “Filth Upon Filth”

Soulfly have shared an animated video for their new song “Filth Upon Filth.” This track is from the band’s new album “Totem,” which will be released on August 5. Frontman Max Cavalera commented:

“‘Filth Upon Filth’ was the first track unleashed to the Tribe last year. Costin [Chioreanu] has created an amazing, savage rendition of the song! This is a song made by a headbanger for headbangers!”

Max Cavalera To Release “Fully Revised And Updated” Version Of “My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond”

Max Cavalera will be releasing a “fully revised and updated” version of his autobiography, “My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura To Soulfly And Beyond,” on July 26 via Jawbone Press. Pre-orders can be found on Amazon.

Here’s a description of the book:

“Max Cavalera has an extraordinary story to tell, and My Bloody Roots is an autobiography like no other. Much more than just another tale of rock’n’roll debauchery, it’s a story of heartbreak and loss—and, ultimately, triumph. In it, Cavalera offers an unflinching account of life growing up in hardship in Brazil—a country not previously known for heavy metal—and the multi-million- selling success, against all odds, of the band he founded with his brother, Iggor: Sepultura.

Then, for the first time, he reveals the full story behind his split with the band—after which he did not speak to his brother for years—and the formation of his Soulfly, one of the most critically and commercially successful metal bands of recent decades. He also goes into unflinching detail on the devastating impact of the deaths of his father, stepson, and grandson; his struggles with drugs and alcohol; his eventual reunion with Iggor in Cavalera Conspiracy; and more.

This revised and updated edition continues to trace Max’s career to the present day, covering the formation of his new band Go Ahead And Die as well as the supergroup Killer Be Killed. It also includes a foreword by Dave Grohl and a brand new afterword by Randy Blythe, making it truly essential reading for all fans of metal.”
