SOULFLY have set the tentative track listing for their new album, "Dark Ages", due on September 13 via Roadrunner Records.
"Dark Ages" was produced by SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera and was mixed by Terry Date, who has previously worked with PANTERA and DEFTONES, among others.
"Dark Ages" tentative track listing:
01. The Dark Ages
03. I And I
04. Carved Inside
07. Inner Spirit
08. Corrosion Creeps
09. Riot Starter
11. Feel The Hate
12. Stay Strong
13. Soulfly V
In a recent interview with SoulflyWeb.com, Cavalera had the following to say about the upcoming CD: "The events that took place this past December, with the death of Dimebag Darrell and the passing of [Max's step-grandson] Moses, had a huge influence on the way that I chose to present this album, so I'd say that that made it a bit darker. We did some of the recordings in France, Turkey, and Russia and we used some instruments that you could only find in those countries. Those recordings will definitely have a strong effect on the direction that the worldly and atmospheric elements of the album take. But Marc [Rizzo, guitar] and Joe [Nunez, drums], those guys are both huge metalheads, and they kind of forced me to make a very heavy, brutal album. I don't listen to metal as much as I used to, but Marc just lives and breathes metal. Everything like LAMB OF GOD, SLAYER, MAIDEN, NAPALM DEATH, and some extremely crazy death metal shit. He loves to play those riffs and he's amazing at it, so that'll be on there, too."
SOULFLY's most recent studio album, "Prophecy", was issued in March 2004.
