5.0 out of 5 stars The soundtrack to War and Peace, 9 April 2004
This review is from: Prophecy [Limited Edition Digipak] (Audio CD)
The godfather of metal returns with his fourth Soulfly opus `Prophecy`!
Upon listening to the first 30seconds of this cd it becomes aware to the listener that Max Cavalera has returned to his angst thrash driven beginnings,without comprimising the world music tinges that he has managed to incorporate into soulfly`s music so well.
Title track `Prophecy` kicks of the way you`d expect it to.An ear trembling resonating guitar noise intro before the heavy guitar attack begins.Resting somewhere in between `roots` and `refuse/resist`,this track has the grinding verses and catchy choruses before the thrash tastic fast paced riff (ala `arise`) of the end.Damn fine stuff!
Then we go into the dual axe attack of `Living Sacrifice`!the stand out moments for me on this song is not the catchy chorus,but the way that the verse makes me feel that there is a breeze around me spouting forth the lyrics,in an almost story teller like way,before the introduction of the much missed solo to Max`s work,courtesty of Marc Rizzo!
We then lead into the riff laded `Execution Style`,followed by the two minute belter of `Defeat U`,a straight up old school hardcore track,complete with ultra metal solo in the middle,and accompanied on vocals by the iron lunged voice of Danny Marianino from the arizona hardcore band `North Side Kings`!
Without a chance to breathe,`Mars`hits you in the face with its tribal heaviness before leading out in a latin acoustic guitar sound that relaxes you nicely before `I Believe` kicks you in the ribs.
The simple heaviness of this song is awesome,blended with the angelic voice of Asha Rabouin in the background.
Next up `Moses`,a collaboration with the serbian reggae,dub,metal band `Eyesburn`!A perfect blend of both styles that leads out in a super heavy bouncy end that only max knows how to do best!
Then we have `Born Again Anarchist`,a classic soulfly track,mixing catchyness with sheer heavyosity,containg a scream that seems to ring out like some kind of sound effect!
Next up,`Porrada`,sounding something akin to oldschool bands like RDP,Discharge,GBH and Nailbomb!
Coming after this attack is the cover song `in the meantime` from the much ahead of there time/overlooked band Helmet!
The last two tracks of the album lend to the more mellow side of soulfly,the instrumental `Soulfly IV` and `Wings`,once again
with vocal duties being handled by Asha Rabouin!
So there we have it,the album in my opinion Soulfly have been waiting to make since there conception.Perfectly blending old with new,thrash with world music!!!!!
Buy this album and prepare for your ears to bleed!!!!!
