Soulfly

Upon his exit from Sepultura in late 1996, singer/guitarist/songwriter Max Cavalera almost automatically set out to form his next musicalendeavor, the ultra-heavy Soulfly. Besides leaving one of the most popular heavy metal bands in the world, which he'd co-founded in theearly '80s, he also had to deal with the unsolved murder of Dana Wells, his stepson and best friend.

Upon his exit from Sepultura in late 1996, singer/guitarist/songwriter Max Cavalera almost automatically set out to form his next musicalendeavor, the ultra-heavy Soulfly. Besides leaving one of the most popular heavy metal bands in the world, which he'd co-founded in theearly '80s, he also had to deal with the unsolved murder of Dana Wells, his stepson and best friend. Using music as therapy to overcome hisdepression, Cavalera put together a band that included Roy "Rata" Mayorga on drums (ex-Thorn) and Jackson Bandeira on second guitar(ex-Chico Science), while former Sepultura roadie Marcello D. Rapp rounded out the quartet on bass. Their self-titled debut album wasreleased in the spring of 1998. Besides fronting Soulfly, Cavalera has branched out into other areas usually not associated with heavy metalmusicians. He became a much sought- after speaker at music conventions, as evidenced by his appearances at CMJ's New Music Marathonin New York and Holland's Crossing Boarder Festival, both in late 1997. He also guested on Deftones' breakthrough album, Around the Fur,and signed on to sing a TV commercial for Sprite in his native land of Brazil. Soulfly's second album, Primitive, was released in the fall of 2000. The album was met with a split reaction, and Cavalera found himself theobject of criticism from factions of his fan base. The heavy amount of guest appearances and his preference toward nu-metal lyrics were themain complaints, but Cavalera maintained pride in his work and kept going, hitting the road and touring behind the album. He handled theproduction for 2002's III, and Soulfly returned again in 2004 with Prophecy. A year later, Roadrunner reissued their self-titled first albumas part of the label's 25th anniversary celebration. Soulfly's fifth album, Dark Ages, appeared in October 2005. Continuing his habit ofswitching up the lineup, Cavalera was backed this time out by bassist Bobby Burns, guitarist Marc Rizzo (ex-Ill NiƱo), and drummer JoelNunez, who had previously played on Primitive. In 2007 Cavalera began collaborating with brother and former Sepultura drummer Igor on aproject called Cavalera Conspiracy. The duo made its live debut that August as the opening act for Soulfly, and went on to release an album,Inflikted, for Roadrunner in 2008. Soulfly's sixth full-length offering, Conquer, arrived in July 2008 and was quickly followed by 2009'sOmen. After the release of their seventh album, the band went through a sting of lineup changes. The first came in 2010 when bassist BobbyBurns announced he was leaving the band; he was replaced the following year by former Ministry bassist Tony Campos. Drummer Joe Nunezalso left the band, and was replaced by Borknagar's David Kinkade shortly before Soulfly went into the studio to begin work on new materialthat would eventually become their eighth album, Enslaved, which was released in 2012. « hide
