Adam Warren, vocalist for Chicago deathcore heavyweights OCEANO, has recorded a guest appearance on the new album from SOULFLY, due in early 2012 via Roadrunner Records. Also scheduled to appear on SOULFLY‘s follow-up to 2010’s “Omen” is DEVILDRIVER/COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara.
SOULFLY‘s new CD 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.”
A new interview with SOULFLY/CAVALERA CONSPIRACY frontman Max Cavalera conducted at the October 8 Ft. Lauderdale, Florida stop of CAVALERA CONSPIRACY‘s North American headlining tour will air on the October 20 edition of WYKKED WYTCH vocalist Ipek‘s “Wytching Hour” show on Metal Messiah Radio. Clips from the chat can now be seen below.
Kinkade joined SOULFLY a few weeks ago following the departure of the group’s longtime skinsman Joe Nunez.
Max Cavalera‘s son Zyon sat behind the drum kit for the band’s July 31 performance at the Lokerse festival in Lokeren, Belgium. The concert also marked the debut appearance with SOULFLY of the band’s new bassist Tony Campos (STATIC-X, PRONG, ASESINO, MINISTRY, POSSESSED), who replaced Bobby Burns this past spring.
“Omen” sold 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 73 on The Billboard 200 chart.
