Ever since the band’s gold-certified debut in 1998, SOULFLY have become deadlier and more dangerous with each critically acclaimed successive release and Savages is no exception. The record was produced by the world-renowned Terry Date (PANTERA, DEFTONES, SOUNDGARDEN), and will also be the first to feature Max Cavalera’s 21-year-old son Zyon on drums. The artwork was created by artist Paul Stottler, who is best known for SACRED REICHâ€™s legendary Surf Nicaragua cover. Savages was released as a limited edition digipak CD, 2LP vinyl and digital download on October 1 (North America) and will be released October 4 (Europe) via Nuclear Blast. Guest vocal appearances on Savages include bass player Tony Campos, Max Cavalera’s other son Igor Cavalera (LODY KONG), CLUTCH’s Neil Fallon, NAPALM DEATH’s Mitch Harris and Jamie Hanks of I DECLARE WAR.
As if there was a more metal way to come into the world, Zyonâ€™s heartbeat in utero served as the intro to SEPULTURAâ€™s 1993 classic RIAA-gold-certified record
Chaos A.D. Max would depart SEPULTURA soon after the release of Roots in 1996.
