It’s tough being a metal fan these days. With this much good music coming out, how on Earth are we meant to keep up?
I mean, I’ve only just managed to get caught up with the latest Soulfly record and its October 1st release date is just around the corner. Initially, I was a little dubious as the band have lost what was one of the main draws of their previous record Enslaved, in the hyper-precise drumming of David Kinkade (ex-Borknagar), but after hearing ‘Master Of Savagery‘ I’m a little less worried.

Alongside this, the album is apparently loaded with guest appearances including Clutch‘s Neil Fallon, Napalm Death‘s Mitch Harris and I Declare War‘s Jamie Hanks, which Max Cavalera discusses in the video below:
