Product Description

Product Description

Somewhere between where life's uncertainty and nature's fury collide, Dark Ages resides. Singer/guitarist Max Cavalera, conductor of the innovative metal mavens Soulfly and co-founder of the renowned band Sepultura, returns with Soulfly's heaviest, most flammable work to date. Dark Ages marries the band's aggressive driving force with disarming experimentation - Soulfly hallmarks that are as unpredictable as they are brave. Armed with the same core band as found on last year's Prophecy (guitarist Mark Rizzo, drummer Joe Nunez, bassists Bobby Burns and Dave Ellefson), Cavalera also continues the tradition of adding guests into the mix and blowing sonic boundaries out of existence.

This is an absolutely rocking heavy metal album and possibly a little underrated. It's easily Max Cavalera's best work since leaving Seplultura and in my opinion better than anything they did. (Though I realise that's a controversial statement!) It's beautifully produced (by Max himself) and literally every tune is of the highest quality.

Unlike Soulfly's previous albums this doesn't get bogged down in endless lounge doodles and ethnic beats. Instead it goes from one crushing riff to another, with some almost dance-music like flourishes such as 'Riotstarter.' Tracks like 'Arise Again' and 'Frontlines' are pure classic brutal thrash.

If you're looking for no-nonsense, straightforward quality heavy metal then I would strongly recommend this. Don't be put off if you don't like previous Soulfly albums, this is much better. There's no rapping and virtually no guest-singers! There's enough variety and brutality to keep you happy for ages.

Very very interesting album. On the first few listens i was a bit blunted due to the fact that as with their previous effort's, its more back to basics and less "experimental". I quite enjoy soulfly for the very fact they dont sound like all the other bands out there. The blend of hard and smoothe with the fast and tribal has allways been what set them and sepultura apart form the crowd.
In my initial ignorance i had no idea just how good this album is, its truly a grower! This is potentially the best Soulfly record yet! its desolate and heavy while retaining a quality that lets you get deeper and deeper with every listen.
As with Tool - this wont please everyone but hardcore Soulfly'ers will not be dissapointed - just listen carefully and you'll be pleasantly surprised as benath the bludgeoning noise; beats the melodic heart of a juggernaut! :)

Max Cavalera has gone back to the primitive (if you’ll pardon the pun) and created an album which is very much inspired by his roots (again, pardon the pun.) This album sees Cavalera going back to his glory days of Sepultura and Nailbomb, writing downtuned bottom string riffs reminiscent to those off his most successful albums. An example of this is track five, ‘Arise Again’. The clue is probably in the title. Obviously inspired by Sepultura’s ‘Arise’ era, thrash riffage, gang vocals and with a hauntingly melodic guitar solo. Another stand out track is ‘I and I’. Yet again a full paced thrash anthem with heavy breakdowns for those mosh pit maniacs. In this track you get a full mix of what Soulfly is about, the heaviness, the trademark Max Cavalera shout and the instrumental. It’s like having bread without butter. On this release however the butter has been scraped on and scraped off. There’s significantly less of it on the Dark Ages’ predecessor, Prophecy. A clever move, I must say. Even myself, the most dedicated of Soulfly fans, finds the instrumental experimentations tedious. There is just one totally instrumental track, which is entitled ‘Soulfly V’. These are almost a tradition now on Soulfly albums, so it is forgiven. On the limited edition album you also get three bonus tracks. Two of which are live versions of ‘Seek ‘n’ Strike’ and ‘Prophecy’.
For the first time in Soulfly’s history, Cavalera has kept the same line up for two albums running. His second clever move. This is probably showing promise, as this is their best album since their self titled debut back in ’98. It shows that if a band are playing together long enough, they can work well together and produces monster records such as this.
Be sure to check them out on tour in January and February of next year for an unmissable live show.

Soulfly have never been my favourite band, quite often seeming more like a vehicle for Max Cavalera to exorcise the Sepultura demons of old as he distanced himself from the band that once catapulted him to stardom.
As a result a number of previous Soulfly tracks have seemed only half-finished. The experimental nature most prevalent on Sepultura's legendary 'Roots' album was taken to the next level, but the metal music underpinning it all was undeniably lacklustre. Max received a lot of criticism for this, fans and critics alike pleading for something more.
With Dark Ages, Soulfly certinly deliver. Adopting an almost stripped down, back to basics approach these songs are faster, harder and more brutal than this band have ever been. The tribal drums and ethnic instrumentation is still present, but this time it takes a back seat to the thunderous metal sounds.
I for one consider this a spectacular return to form, and implore others to give the album a try. Even if Soulfly have never been your 'thing' before this disc may just change all of that.

Many years ago I got Soulfly's first album and it blew me away. I still play it from time to time, and it never fails to impress me. However, as Soulfly released subsequent albums it became clear that they had found their blueprint and were reluctant to shift from it. I rapidly lost interest in the formulaic writing style and tired sentiments.
This album forces me to forgive them for all that. It seems Max is actually angry again, and his band have developed a truly crushing sound. Each track is fresh and new, and the album as a whole is so perfectly structured I can happily sit and listen to it all without growing bored. Riotstarter is by far the most experimental song, and when coupled with tracks like Soulfly V or Arise Again, shows the true breadth of talent in this incarnation of the band.
