In late 1997 the death metal communitly lost one of it's most angry frontmen when Max Cavelera left the brazilian super group sepultura around this time Max's stepson dana wells was killed in a car accident that reaks of foul play Max then proceded to the studio with alt-metal group the deftones to co-write the song "headup" in wich max screams the words "Soulfly" this in some way translated to Max that he will name an upcomming project that. At the begining of the recording of the self titled debut album of soulfly Max found latin american musicians to play on the record. He also enlisted the talents of other musicians such as Chino Moreno from the Deftones, Benji Weebe of Dub War and Fred Durst and DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit on the blistering agro-metal classic "Bleed" another stand out track is the cover of a sepultura song co-written by the late Dana Wells. To call Max Cavelera a superb vocalist would be wrong he is a raw and brutal screamer that has a roar surpassed by no one. most of the songs on the Soulfly LP are about the pain of loosing a loved one or the pain and tourment of the slaves and natives in brasil who's land is being burned and chopped down as you read this. So when you hear this album and think it is just uninspired screaming with loud guitars to boot remember what you read here today.

After Roadrunner decided to re-release Sepultura's Roots album for their 25th anniversary, I knew right off the bat, that they would re-release the Soulfly album as well, since it is considered to be Roots Part 2. I was disappointed somewhat with the Roots Re-release, seeing very little new bonus material and deciding there wasn't enough information in the booklet. I got a hold of this new edition with the aid of a gift card. If you don't have this album yet, this is the version to buy. If you already have had this album (such as myself), then you should hunt down a used copy or get it for a cheaper price than the $20 that Roadrunner is asking for.

There are 3 versions of this album available (not including the imports). The original version, the original 2 disc re-release (I have that one) and now this one. The only thing that is missing from this version is the remixes and Eye for an Eye (Live at Indigo Ranch) from the original re-release. It's no secret that Roadrunner is re-releasing these albums as a quick cash grab from the fan. This was Soulfly's best album by far, had Roadrunner chosen to re-release Primitive or the even worse 3, I wouldn't have bothered to take a glance. Honestly I feel that there are better and older records that Roadrunner needs to re-release instead. Malevolent Creation fans have been demanding for some time that Roadrunner re-releases their first three albums, but it seems that Roadrunner is taking no interest as many Soulfly, Slipknot, Trivium and Killswitch Engage fans probably haven't even heard of Malevolent Creation and it wouldn't sell as much as those, despite them being way better. Anyways, back to this record.

These days there are a lot of good solid metal bands, but very few original acts. Soulfly defies this tradition and comines two musical dimensions that are very far apart yet blend seamlessly. In fact, this could even be considered a higher form of metal, since metal music has a tendency to resonante with the primal instincts of the soul, and Soulfly's tribal elements intensify that resonance. This CD is absolutely primitive fury and has a raw, savage feel. However, this does not mean it's poorly produced or executed. There is a curious complexity in the blistering guitar riffs and thundering drums, which often combine the kit with jungle percussion. It doesn't feel as "dark" as most metal, but it abounds with savage energy that is refreshing and inspiring. This is by far their best album, although all of their releases are well worth the $$. Their live show is nothing short of amazing- don't pass up a chance to see them.

Soulfly has repaved the road for heavy metal, showing that you don't have to be soft and slow to be played on the radio. Soulfly also carries the the very essense of heavy metal, and Max still fuels the fire that other singers no longer carry(James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine). So when you listen to this cd, hold your head up high and know that your part of the SOULFLY TRIBE!

Quite honestly, this album has a decent sound to it. The heaviness, the musicianship, the vocals, the parts all come together nicely most of the time. The problem is that this album is a total 'Roots' rip-off. There's no new material on this album. In addition, the sound gets eminently repetitive over time, as did 'Roots' at times... I recommended it to those who absolutely worship Max Cavalera. Otherwise, the album is completely unoriginal, uncreative, and done much better with Sepultura.

BEING A HARDCORE FAN OF SEPULTURA, I WAS SADENED TO HEAR THAT MAX HAD LEFT. WHEN I PURCHASED THIS CD I WAS IN A TRANCE. MAX DOES NOT NEED SEPULTURA TO PROVE HIS WORTH TO METAL FANS. EVEN THOUGH I AM NOT A LIMP BIZKIT FAN, FRED DURST DID AN AWESOME JOB ON "BLEED". "EYE FOR AN EYE" IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE OLD DAYS WHEN MAX WAS WITH SEPULTURA. THIS ALBUM IS A HARD HITTING, HEAD-THRASHING PIECE OF WORK.
