Album Rating: 2.5
Not sure why I forced myself to listen to this. Bland riffs after bland riffs for 58 minutes.
i fucking hate Cavalera's accent, it pisses me off
Album Rating: 3.5
This is the first album I've ever listened to by these guys. Diggin' it though.
Digging: Descendents - Milo Goes to College
Album Rating: 3.5 | Sound Off
Can't see myself listening to the new one but this is a solid groove/death metal album
Digging: Lorde - Melodrama
So I'm a bit late to realizing that this album actually kinda fucking rules.
Album Rating: 4.0
Digging: Emperor - IX Equilibrium
I've had this as background music for like 4 years and I liked it fine, don't get me wrong, it's just... it finally clicked.
Also a fun fact, I listened to Enslaved for the first time recently and it was pretty damn good! I skipped it entirely when it came out because Omen was such a god-awful dogshit follow-up to Conquer. Sadly, since Archangel was pretty fucking lame after this, RIP Soulfly I guess... Oh well, at least Cavalera Conspiracy is still good.
Album Rating: 4.0
I enjoy Archangel, still amazes me that it has a higher average than this though. In fact this is the second lowest for some ungodly reason.
this is heaps better than the first bunch of Soulfly albums... for me the golden trilogy of Soulfly was always Prophecy, Dark Ages, Conquer. They totally nailed 3 albums in succession topping themselves every time, pretty remarkable for a band that started as a shitty 4 chord nu-metal band. But Archangel is weak stuff man. A couple good tunes, but the album as a whole is below this band's pay grade.
Lastly, Marc Rizzo is a motherfucking wizard! If you track the dude's improvement over albums when it comes to leads, it's pretty nuts. His skill has grown immense and he has such a sick unique style. You always know a Rizzo solo.
