Soulfly's seventh album, Omen, stands steeped in tradition.
Available May 2010, frontman Max Cavalera fuels Omen with the same blood, fire and spirit that made him a genre icon with Sepultura, Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy. Following the warpath left by 2008's critically acclaimed Conquer, Omen is a sign of Soulfly becoming an even fiercer, fierier and more furious metallic monster, seven albums into their storied career. Various Soulfly traditions remain upheld over the course of the album's 11 tracks. Bobby Burns' bass rumbles and roars on teeth-gnashing opener "Bloodbath and Beyond," as Joe Nunez commences pure percussive pummeling. Marc Rizzo tears through throat-slitting leads, while still making room to groove on the likes of "Lethal Injection." Max's unmistakable vocals and riffs work in tandem for the ultimate aural assault.
Omen signals a new chapter for Soulfly and heavy metal.
