SOULFLY enter studio in January, hint return to tribal elements and concept

Metal icons SOULFLY have announced to enter the studio in January to record the follow-up to 2015’s Archangel which will most likely be released in summer 2018 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

The as of yet untitled album will be recorded with Josh Wilbur, who also worked with Max Cavalera‘s other band, KILLER BE KILLED as well as heavy-hitters LAMB OF GOD and GOJIRA.

In an interview with Backstage AxxessCavalera said: “I’m actually writing right now. I’m collecting the riffs right now and getting the ideas.I’m excited, because I think the album will have a little bit of a return to some tribal sounds that I haven’t done since Prophecy. So that’ll be cool, to return to some of that. And then the rest of the album will be a continuation of Archangel; a lot of people like Archangel. And, of course, I think that it will be also somehow influenced by Psychosis, ’cause Psychosis was such a cool record that I’m sure that somewhere in the SOULFLY record we’ll have the influence of that on top of it too. So it’ll be a really cool record to work on.”

In another interview with the No Limits Music Show, he explained that the next SOULFLY album will be “deeply tribal, very spiritual. There’s a concept. I cannot tell you much about it, ’cause it’s kind of a surprise. But there is a concept behind the record, and I have not done a record with a concept like this since »Roots«. So this one has got the same kind of feeling that Roots has.”
