Soulfly Premiere Lyric Video For “Under Rapture” Feat. Ross Dolan (Immolation)

Soulfly have premiered a lyric video for their song “Under Rapture.” This track features Ross Dolan (Immolation) and it appears on the band’s new album “Ritual,” which was released today (October 19). Dolan commented:

“It was really exciting for me to be part of the new Soulfly album. ‘Under Rapture’ is a crushing song and I was on board the second I heard it. It was truly an honor for me to have been part of this. I think it’s a sick song both musically and lyrically and I am really happy with the end result! This collaboration started last February when we were invited out as support on the ‘Return To Roots’ tour which eventually led to Max singing on the ‘Morbid Visions’ cover we did for the ‘Death Is Just The Beginning’ comp. As fans, having Max part of this made it really special and truly meant the world to us.”

Soulfly Premiere New Song “Ritual”

Soulfly have premiered a new song titled “Ritual.” This is the title track of the band’s new album, which is set to be released on October 19. Max Cavalera commented:

“This song took a long time and almost didn’t make the record. We recorded it as an instrumental and ran out of time in the studio. We ended up having to fly Josh Wilbur (producer) out to my house to finish the vocals. He kept on telling me he wanted more of that ‘tribal shit’ like some of the stuff on our first record and ‘Primitive’. We ended up creating the chorus on the spot and layering something like 12 or 16 tracks of chanting for it. After we heard it and were listening back, we got really excited and were high-fiving each other. Josh just turned to me and said that was what he wanted to hear as a fan, and he was really happy to get that out of me. We both knew it was a new SOULFLY classic for the ages and had to be the album opener. I’m really proud of this song and I think old-school fans of my work are going to love it.”

Max Cavalera said the following:

“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 added:

“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’!”
