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.

Enslaved is the band's eighth studio album. It was released in 2012 and finds the band recording with a new rhythm section as bassist Bobby Burns (who had been in the band since 2003) and drummer Joe Nunez (who was in the band since 2000, except for one album) get replaced by Tony Campos of Static-X and David Kinkade of Borknagar.
Lead guitarist Marc Rizzo is now the band's second longest lasting member behind Max himself, and has become more and more integral to the band's sound and direction since joining in 2003 (in addition to appearing in alongside Max in his other band Cavelera Conspiracy.)
Where Enslaved fits in with the rest of the band's catalogue is definitely closer in style to the sound found on the faster and darker albums like Dark Ages than the fun and bouncy tribal sing along albums like Primitive. It is probably the most straight forward, serious and un-experimental sounding album the band have ever done, which counter-intuitively lends the record a really interesting an vital sound.
The style at this stage is completely absent of any Nu Metal influence, with the drumming and guitar generally a lot more clinical and thrash influenced than ever before, however the manage to do so in a manner that feels entirely modern and nothing like homage to the 1980s.Read more ›
From the the intro 'Resistance' to the manic 'Redemption of man by God' featuring good old Dez Fafara :) this album blasts angry on a high level, even by Max Cavalera's standard.
Bits of songs feel Sepultur-ish, but in a good way. The main plus of this album is that (i feel) its keeps things interesting. Riffs are catchy, production is good in general, unlike the slightly dissapointing Omen which was in my opinion quite a boring album!
But enough moaning about their previous album, this review is about 'Enslaved' which i give a good 8/10. it was never gonna match his earlier masterpieces like
Beneath The Remains (Reissue), Roots or Soulfly, but its much better than most of the modern 'turd' rock thats going around nowadays!!!
P.S. if your serious about soulfly, or (like me) Max Cavalera in general, then make the effort and listen to his earlier music. check these out-
beneath the remains, arise, chaos A.D., roots, blood-rooted, under a pale gray sky, chaos DVD.
(i know they did 2 earlier albums before they signed to Roadrunner, but they were somewhat poor in quality and all over the place. 'Beneath the remains' is where Max's journey trully begins)
point blank, proud to commit commercial suicide.
#CAVALERA CONSPIRACY (2008-????)
inflikted, blunt force trauma.
soulfly, primitive, 3, prophecy, dark ages, conquer, omen, enslaved.
I hope you find this list useful. Thanks for reading ;D
I lost my metal taste for a brief period.
I went travelling for 3 months earlier this year. I put loads of music on my ipod before I went as I wanted to discover new albums I hadn't listened to.
In this mass music collection I loaded in loads of Metal that I loved and got new albums of my fav bands i.e. Soulfly Deftones Sepultura etc
My rediscovery of Soulfly came after listening to Omen.
I already loved Soulfly, Primitive and the okish 3
Tracks from Omen like Rise of the Fallen, Kingdom, Lethal Injection made me realise how much I had missed Soulfly.
So I listened to the other albums Prophecy, Dark Ages, Conquer all awesome but then....
I discovered Soulfly's new album enslaved (How the F did I not know this was out sooner!)
I first discovered listening to Enslaved on You tube through the video 'World Scum' which I immediately loved. It sounded more brutal than the old Soulfly I'd know.
Then I listened to the whole album, the first play through there were rifts and some tracks I thought were OK.
Then I listened again and again and again.
In my Ipod in the gym in my car.
The album is outstanding!
My Fav tracks are of course 'World Scum', 'Gladiator' 'Legions' + 'Chains'
If you've not listened to the album, then do
