Soulfly -Enslaved Album Review
Got a new review up over on Gotham Rocks
Read it right C'here!!!!
It is of Soulfly's newest release Enslaved.
While my friends over at Gotham Rocks have been exposing me to new more mainstream "Hard Rock" acts, I have been a fan of Max since his earliest recordings. Granted I never got on the Soulfly train, but early Sepultura (especially Arise) were vital in my love for thrash metal.
I will never forget the looks on other teams faces in high school when we warmed up to "Arise" and "Dead Embryonic Cells", no idea how to react.
While this record isn't up to those heights, it certainly brings back a level of real metal, and goes into straight death metal territory at points. It is heavy as fuck and if you are into that sort of thing, or like me was a fan of Max back in the day give this one a listen. You can buy it here, catch the band live here and check out some samples below:
My favorite song on the album "Plata o Plomo"
