DEVILDRIVER/COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara and OCEANO vocalist Adam Warren will make a guest appearances on the new album from SOULFLY, due in early 2012 via Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2010’s “Omen” was recorded at a Phoenix, Arizona studio with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris, who has previously worked with CHIMAIRA, HATEBREED, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE ACACIA STRAIN, BORN OF OSIRIS and SHADOWS FALL, among others. The band’s new drummer, David Kinkade (BORKNAGAR, ARSIS, MALEVOLENT CREATION), described the group’s new material on his Facebook page as “crushing, fast thrash, blasting, tribal and fueled by extreme burrito fury. . . The record is sounding fucking SICK. Thrashy as fuck… totally ‘Arise’ [referring to SEPULTURA‘s classic 1991 album] on crack and speed.”
“Blunt Force Trauma”, the sophomore album from CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, sold around 5,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 122 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s debut CD, “Inflikted”, opened with 9,000 units to enter the chart at No. 72.
“Blunt Force Trauma” was once again tracked with ex-MACHINE HEAD/SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader, who co-produced the LP with Max. Logan also mixed the follow-up to the band’s debut album, “Inflikted”, which has sold less than 50,000 copies in the United States since its March 2008 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
