None of the records released between then and now were particularly poor.

Now, with Killer Be Killed (2014) and his recent return-to-form with Cavalera Conspiracy's Psychosis (2017) under his belt, Max appears to be experiencing a late-career resurgence, and Ritual—his eleventh full-length release under the Soulfly banner—only continues that upward trajectory.
