PitCam.TV conducted an interview with SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera at this year’s edition of the With Full Force festival, which was held June 29 – July 1 at Flugplatz Roitzschjora in Löbnitz, Germany (near Leipzig). You can now watch the chat below.
SOULFLY‘s eighth album, “Enslaved”, sold 5,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 82 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “Omen”, opened with 6,000 units in June 2010 to land at No. 73.
SOULFLY‘s 2008 album, “Conquer”, premiered with 8,400 copies to enter the chart at No. 66. This number was in line with the opening tally of the CD’s predecessor, “Dark Ages”, which shifted a little more than 8,000 copies during its first week of release in October 2005 to debut at No. 155.
“Enslaved” was released on March 13 via Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at TallCat Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and was produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris, the seasoned knob twiddler behind some of the most notable bands in metal today, such as SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED, THE RED CHORD and more.
SOULFLY‘s video for the song “World Scum” was conceptualized by Max Cavalera and director Thomas Mignone (MUDVAYNE, SLIPKNOT, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, MORBID ANGEL) and produced through Mignone‘s production company Doom Incorporated.
SOULFLY‘s current lineup features drummer David Kinkade (BORKNAGAR, ARSIS, MALEVOLENT CREATION), Max and guitar dynamo Marc Rizzo, with STATIC-X‘s Tony Campos taking up the bass.
