"Energy in the purest form" isn't only a line shouted by Tom Araya in "Terrorist", it's also the perfect way to describe this album. "Primitive" is nothing short of sheer grade-A energy and excitement. Full to the brim with roaring riffs, energetic vocals and bouncy drums. After the opening acoustic guitar of the opening track, Max and Co. push the pedal to the metal and don't let up until track six.

In a lot of ways, "Primitive" picks up where Soulfly's debut left off (with its hard hitting songs, four chord guitars and tribal drums), but this album also encorporates a few new elements into Soulfly's wall of sound: keyboards, samples, and a slew of guest vocalists (Chino Moreno of the Deftones guests on "Pain", John Lennon's son Sean Lennon contributes vocals and keyboards to "Son Song", Corey Taylor of Slipknot shows up on "JumpDaF**kUp" and Slayer's Tom Araya helps out on "Terrorist".) If you think it's clever of Max to blend these things into death metal, you haven't seen anything yet (check out Soulfly's latest album "Prophecy.")

Highlights include:

Chino begins his cameo on "Pain" with a spittle-flecked rap, but, as the song progresses, he really lets loose. He and Max trade off yelling "You can't mask. Pain! My pain! Our pain!"
"Bring It" begins as an unrelenting monster of a song, but midway through an almost reggae interlude intervines. Don't fear, though, because all of the heaviness comes back after the interlude.
"Jumpdaf*ckup" is probably a personal favorite. If there was ever a song that was made for the mosh, this is it. Corey Taylor croons gently throughout most of the song, until he erupts for the chorus.
"Boom"'s chorus ("Whachu got, whachuwachu got, whachu got, boom!") will be stuck in your head all day long.

Wow What A record! This is a moving, emotional and dare I say spirutual Cd. I have always been a fan of Sepultura and continueto support both bands in their musical quests. That said Primitive is an amazing cd. Max and his tribe tear it up on this cd without one bad song on the whole disc. Now I love Max's voice as much as the next guy but it sometimes can get repeative. But here's the beauty of this disc Max brings in new singers to duet with him adding a much needed variety to this album. Some surprizes are Corey Taylor ( Slipknot) on Jumpdaf**kup showing off alot better vocals then his current bands disc. Max also get a stunning performance out of Sean Leannon on Son's Song. Hearing Max and Sean combine vocals on a song about lost fathers is truly a lasting experience. All the songs carry different moods and tones and this is just 100 % better than the 1st disc. Plus the disc comes with two live tracks Eye for Eye and Tribe. One interesting industrial track Solfire and a reworking of the greatet instrumental ever Soulfly. By the way their is a straight rap song on this record but it is done to mourn the loss of friends and continues the highly regarded merger of rap and metal in the vein of Anthrax/Public Enemy. Their is also some lovely R&B singing on the Chrous of the last song. A true masterpiece plus the digipack is cheaper than the regular cd.

I have always been a big fan of Maxs work, from sepultura to nailbomb and soulfly. one of my all time fave groups is always gonna be sepultura, and hearing max was kicked out was somethin that i thought would kill the metal world. soon, he came back with soulfly, a decent album but nothing near the genius work with sepultura. the debut was full of agression yet something was lacking. i noticed this album, expecting the same ol fare, but i was shocked to hear a better album. The drums are clearer, even more aggressive than before. The bass stands out a lot better, making its mark on my ears. the guitar work is much improved as well. the songs are better also, the writing seems a little more focused than before yet still containing the aggressive tone of the past. Max is still in top form here, going from tribal chant to guttaral scream in seconds. standouts are tracks 1-6,8, and 12. the best is the one with corey from slipknot (another great band), second being terrorist with tom araya of slayer fame. all in all, worth all the pennies spent, a helluva release.

Max Cavalera's second effort with his post-Sepultura band Soulfly is possibly the most eclectic collection of music he ever recorded. While some metal fans today dismiss Primitive as "nu-metal garbage," there's so much more going on with this album than nu-metal. It's no secret that Max became heavily influenced during the Roots era by Korn, Deftones, and a few other bands just emerging in the nu-metal scene at the time. The Roots album and his first two Soulfly releases show that influence more than any of his other work, and after Primitive, he seemed to have mostly come out of that phase and back into more of a metal mentality. Even Primitive has some ideas that are heavier and more thrash-based than the debut Soulfly album, but it also goes farther in experimentation, working in a wide array of musical influences. The "Roots" sound is still there, but not as overtly Korn-y as "Roots". Max mixes in a great deal of the world music vibe that he established on the first Soulfly. He showed a modern-metal sensibility on "Jumpdaf***up" with Slipknot's Corey Taylor, did a hip-hop crossover on "In Memory of...", a thrash-groove powerhouse, "Terrorist", with Tom Araya of Slayer (!), clean female vocals on "Flyhigh", and even a soulful, groove metal track about mourning fathers with Sean Lennon. Yes, John Lennon's son, Sean Lennon. "Primitive" was a real creative high-point for Max Cavalera, and even though some metal fans remain unforgiving about the rap and nu-metal collaborations, this album still holds a great spot for me in the Soulfly discography. Definitely one of Max's most ambitious efforts, and still with plenty of solid metal to boast.
