SOULFLY bassist Bobby Burns has uploaded behind-the-scenes video footage from some of the band's most recent European performances, including this year's Graspop Metal Meeting, which took place June 25-27 in Dessel, Belgium. Check it out below.
SOULFLY's new album, "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.
SOULFLY's last album, "Conquer", opened with 8,400 units back in August 2008 to land at position No. 66 on The Billboard 200 chart. 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 enter the chart at No. 155.
SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera fuels "Omen" with the same blood, fire and spirit that made him a genre icon with SEPULTURA, SOULFLY and CAVALERA CONSPIRACY. Following the warpath left by 2008's critically acclaimed "Conquer", "Omen" is a sign of SOULFLY becoming an even fiercer, fierier and more furious metallic monster, seven albums into their storied career. Various SOULFLY traditions remain upheld over the course of the album's 11 tracks. Bobby Burns' bass rumbles and roars on teeth-gnashing opener "Bloodbath and Beyond", as Joe Nunez commences pure percussive pummeling. Marc Rizzo tears through throat-slitting leads, while still making room to groove on the likes of "Lethal Injection". Max's unmistakable vocals and riffs work in tandem for the ultimate aural assault.
