Longtime Roadrunner Records recording artist SOULFLY, lead by metal deity Max Cavalera, have just completed a stint at Edge of the Earth Studios in Los Angeles, where they recorded their seventh album. Roadrunner will release album, titled Omen, on May 4. Logan Mader served as co-producer.
Omen follows up 2008's Conquer, which enjoyed incredible critical reception. Alternative Press awarded the album 4.5 out of a possible 5 stars, deeming it "a furious, sonically adventurous metal disc...awesome" while Kerrang! hailed Conquer as "packed with enough invention, aggression and sheer quality tunes to make most other metal bands blush."
In the true Soulfly style and tradition, the album will feature notable guest appearances. Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato and Prong's Tommy Victor will lend their voices to separate songs, while Max's songs, Zyon and Igor, will also appear on special B-sides, making Omen an album that is truly all in the family!
Of the collaborations, Cavalera said "The first one is a song with Tommy Victor from Prong sharing vocals on a song called 'Lethal Injection.' The other is 'Rise of the Fallen,' with shared vocals from Greg Puciato, Dillinger Escape Plan's singer. I also recorded two B-sides with both of my sons playing drums. Igor Cavalera plays on Exel's 'Your Life, My Life,' and Zyon Cavalera plays on Sepultura's 'Refuse/Resist' cover."
The album's track listing is as follows:
Bloodbath & Beyond
Rise of the Fallen
Off With Their Heads
