Soulfly delivers a superior combination of pure Soulfly (Downstroy, Enterfaith, Seek'n'Strike) and collaboration tracks (Tree Of Pain, One and L.O.T.M of a kind). Whilst "Enterfaith" seems to be the standout track to me, both "L.O.T.M" and "Four Elements" present stiff competition to the honour claimed by "Eye For An Eye" and "Pain" on previous albums in my opinion. Therefore it is more than acceptable to find both "Eye For An Eye" and "Pain" live as bonus tracks on this disc, each reminisent of Soulfly and Primitive bonus live additions. "Under The Sun" is a further bonus song, a tribute to Black Sabbath, and a belter at that.
Soulfly 3 comes with the highest recommendation, particularly if you liked the first works, or if you enjoy Ill Nino. I have seen Soulfly live before and they blew me away, I cant wait until I see them again with new songs in tow.
3 came out in 2002 and featured Roy Mayorga back on the drums after a one album absence. The album is also full of guest appearances; from non-famous Brazilian musicians to Ill Nino's singer Cristian Machado and half of Sacred Reich on a bizarre reworking of their classic thrash metal song, `One Nation.'
In addition to the metal sections, 3 is full of the world music influences that Soulfly are famous for and most songs feature at least some jam on light music with additional percussion instruments, perhaps more so than any other Soulfly album. This will be a boon to some listeners and annoying to others.
Overall, The album starts strongly enough with `Downstroy,' `Seek N Strike,' and `Enter Faith,' as well as the concert favourite `L.O.T.M,' but as a whole the album is a bit patchy and doesn't hold the same quality it began with all the way through. The album is far from terrible, but at the same time you may want to try before you buy, just to make sure this album is for you.
In conclusion, 3 by Soulfly is a decent album that Soulfly fans may wish to try out if they are interested in the band, but it isn't the greatest thing the band have ever done. Its definitely three and a half stars at least.

Well, the 1st soulfly album was great. A sort of nu-metal reworking of Sepultura which was good for one album. Read morePublished on 10 Jun. 2003
