Biography

Soulfly incite a musical uprising on Enslaved, their eighth album for Roadrunner Records.

This time around, the heavy metal tribe treads extreme territory by incorporating blast beats, violent riffs and wheezing whammy squeals into its patented groove-driven war cry. All of those elements converge within a concept record about slavery—a first for legendary frontman Max Cavalera ... Read more in Amazon's Soulfly Store

the import single for 'Back To The Primitive' is definitely amazing. its maybe 3tracks long but its a listening experience you'll never tire of. if you know the sounds of Soulfly, you know how original and amazing their sound is. but those who havent heard them...they kinda sound like this: raw political nature, the hardest metal mixed with tribal elements and on some tracks guest appearences from artists from bands like Slayer, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, Fear Factory and more...the perfect combination of many different elements in one. a basic run-down of the tracks is like this
1.Back To The Primitive: its the stanard album version of the title track. it begins with Max doing a countoff in another language. the song is hard the whole way through, but ends with the tribal vibe i speak of earlier. very very cool.
2.Terrorist(total destruction mix): this song is a remix of the song Terrorist. Tom Araya from Slayer does guest vocals on this song and it alternates between him and Max(the singer for Soulfly). parts of the song have these great keyboards on top of the guitar, then the vocals come in and its just amazing. it does the original justice and remains hard as hell...but just overall good.
3.Back To The Primitive(dub sh*t up mix): this is a great remix of Primitive. it begins all tribal and has Max singing. slowly the guitars kick in...but it remains tribal. in the background are these amazing keyboards...kinda haunting in a way. theres a kinda bouncy bass in there...fantastic. in the middle it sounds like a sample of Soulfly live with Max asking the crowd are they ready to bleed(bleed being a song from the first cd). after that it gets hard and fast and basically it grabs you and doesnt let go till it ends.

Soulfly's one and only single, Back to the Primitive features the same song from Primitive (without the 28 second Berimbau intro), a remix of Terrorist, and a remix of Back to the Primitive as well as the Back to the Primitive video. I only got this because it was for sale for 3 bucks. The Terrorist Remix is almost unlistenable. The Back to the Primitive remix isn't as bad but its still crap. And the video? It's edited, features Max in pink/red dreads and a live Ozzfest concert, with the studio version playing over it. I loved Primitive back when I was in 8th grade, but since then I've discovered Sepultura (Max's old band for those who don't know by now), and it was far superior. Soulfly has the occasional good songs here and there, but when Max was in Sepultura, the entire albums were good from start to finish. Back to the Primitive was one of the best songs from Primitive, and it's honestly not that great, it gets old quickly. Roots was better than any Soulfly album, hands down. If you are looking here, you are interested in the remixes. Don't waste your time, they butcher the originals. If you want remixes, the ones from the era of the first album are better. Hoped this helped.

Back to the primitive is a very good Grove metal type of song, along with the amazing tribal beats of terrorist and an awesome remix of back to the primitive too!

If you are a soulfly fan or if you are wanting to get this song, honestly i would just get the "Primitive" album, it has both back to the primitive and terrorist. It doesnt have the remix but its not as good as the original in my opinion.
