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

I have seen a couple of reviews on here already and I dont get you guys at all!!
Omen by Soulfly is another incredible effort from Max Cavalera and co. This album is hard to describe and after what I heard was stated by Max himself before the album was released I was a little dubious myself but after hearing it the first time all these doubts massively faded away. I have now probably listened to it about 8 times and it gets better and better!!!
I have always been a fan of Max's work right from Sepultura to Cavalera Conspiracy and everything inbetween including Nailbomb and it has been amazing to see his songwriting progress with every single release. He never settles and always pushes himself further.
This album is by no means Conquer Part 2 but why would you want that anyway? That was a full on thrash record and Soulfly nailed it; so the only way to go with this release was to take a risk and try a slightly different approach. This paid off in every possible way. As soon as the first song hits you know straight away that it's Max and then when the guitars and the drums pound along with his trademark roar you know its Soufly!! But straight away you can hear a new sound creeping in amongst the thrash and through out the next few songs this comes to the front and creates an amazing mix; its still thrash but its got a darker more atmospheric feel to it; you have to hear it to believe it, but trust me it works so well!!
Another thing thats unexpected and stands out is the impressive lead guitar work on the first few tracks especially, its spot on and really powerful, it adds a new dimension to the Soulfly sound.
All this coupled with the guest appearances and the many surprises hidden amongst the 11 main tracks makes for another impressive metal record from Max and definitely an album of the year; but this also represents a massive creative leap for Soulfly.
Max Cavalera.....your un-stoppable!!!

There have been a few negative reviews for this album from fans on the internet, including some on this very site. I was one of the ones who felt that this CD was a bit of a disappointment when I first heard it, but I'm very glad that I didn't jump to conclusions and write a review based on first impressions. The CD is not the best from Soulfly in my opinion, but it is still a very, very enjoyable listen if you give it time.

The album opens with 'Bloodbath and Beyond', a fast, short, punkish track that kicks the album straight into the trademark ferocity of Max Cavalera's work. This is a bit of a shock after the opening tracks of the last few Soulfly albums, which have tended to open with a more epic and brooding introduction. It hits you like a sledgehammer and sets the tone for the rest of the album. Max's harsh, bellowing vocals, Marc Rizzo's nimble lead guitar work and the thundering rhythm section of Bobby Burns (Bass guitar) and Joe Nunez (Drums and percussion). Rizzo is probably the best lead guitar player that Soulfly have ever had, with his diverse mixture of thrash, hard rock, groove metal and flamenco styles underpinning every release since his debut on 'Prophecy'. If anything he's actually improved with every new release, as showcased here on songs like 'Kingdom', 'Vulture Culture' and 'Off With Their Heads'.

As with all Soulfly albums, there are a few guest appearances. But it seems that Max has decided to tone these down considerably, previous offering 'Conquer' only included two and was well-received. Tommy Victor of Prong lays down vocals on 'Lethal Injection', whilst The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato adds his unique screams to 'Rise of the Fallen'.

Omen was the seventh-full length studio album by Soulfly, it was released in 2010 and ended up being the final album to feature Bobby Burns on bass and Joe Nunez on the drums.

For some fans, it will be appear a lot more straight-forward and direct than any previous Soulfly record, and finds the band continuing further down the path that they have been following for the previous few records towards a faster, heavier and much more streamlined version of their original style.

The band had stated in interviews that it was similar to Slayer's Reign In Blood but those similarities aren't all that noticeable in all honesty beyond mere succinctness. The opening track `Bloodbath And Beyond' and `Vulture Culture' both have an almost Hardcore-Punk sound to them in parts, and most tracks are generally fairly short in length but otherwise the music is very much like the previous couple of Soulfly albums.

This directness is a double-edged sword however, because a lot of what made Soulfly stand out from the crowd when they first came out is now missing, and some fans who loved the band's first two albums may be saddened to find that the tribal drums, new-aged guitar sections and big simple Nu Metal riffs are gone.

Not all of Soulfly's calling cards have been lost however. As with all Soulfly albums, some outside musicians make a guest appearance, in this case Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan on `Rise Of The Fallen' and Tommy Victor of Prong on `Lethal Injection.'

In addition to the guest appearances, Max's lyrical style is very much the same, with all the same topics covered and usage of puns, contractions and portmanteaus. Furthermore, Mark Rizzo's lead guitar style continues in the same vein it has since he joined the band.
