Though this band takes many shapes, it is always centred around one man—the incredible Max Cavalera. Like many other bands, Soulfly has had to deal with a global pandemic that has called the group’s dynamic into question. Though the former Sepultura frontman seems to be blossoming alongside his son and drummer, Zyon (who’s been part of the band for almost 10 years now), the departure of loyal guitarist Marc Rizzo after 18 years of faithful service undeniably disrupted the band for a time. However, Soulfly is now back in top form with a brand new album.


This album was made in a much more relaxed way than its predecessors, taking shape across the father and son’s numerous guitar-drum jams during the lockdown. Totem is a classic Soulfly album with a few surprises in store, injecting their music with a hit of fresh sound. Nonetheless, these tracks are still undeniably snarly and firmly anchored in thrash and death metal.


The first surprise comes in the form of a throwback to the old-fashioned solo. If you love the swirling guitar solos of the late 80s, you’re in for a treat. The album’s producer, Arthur Rizk, gave his all both in front of and behind the studio desk. Many tracks are defined by their biting sound (for example, the intros of 'Filth Upon Filth' and 'Scouring The Vile', where you’ll find John Tardyn, Obituary’s chief screamer) and are as furious as they are fast. Another striking element is their return to a catchy rhythm that borders on neo-metal ('The Damage Done'), something which defined the band’s first albums as well as Sepultura’s famous album Roots, the last record which featured Max Cavalera before his departure. This little step back in time is not unwelcome, if nothing else it gives listeners time to come up for air between the intense waves of thrash and black metal ('Rot In Pain').


This album features a jumble of ideas which could easily have made this release feel disjointed and poorly conceived. However, it’s successfully helped Soulfly break away from the rather rigid feel of their previous records. A proper family affair, with excellent production work and tracks filled with passion and unrelenting aggression - you’d be forgiven for thinking this was their ‘Best of’ album. Long live the Cavalera dynasty. © Chief Brody/Qobuz

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups.

From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also one of the leading ladies in a certain Miles Davis' life, whose wife she would be for a short time. But who really were you Betty?
