Soulfly will return with their 11th studio album this autumn.

Produced, recorded and mixed by Josh Wilbur, 'Ritual' is set to land via Nuclear Blast Records on October 19 and features guest appearances from Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe and Immolation’s Ross Dolan. 

To mark the announcement of the follow up to 2015's 'Archangel', Max Cavalera and band have shared the record's lead single, Evil Empowered, plus the tracklist and sleeve artwork, which was created by Eliran Kantor. Additional booklet art, meanwhile, was designed by Marcelo Vasco. Vocalist and guitarist Cavalera said:

"I am really stoked to be working again with two of my favorite artists, Eliran Kantor and Marcelo Vasco! The Ritual artwork is very mystic and captures the vibe of the album perfectly.

"For this one, we really tried to retain the groove of early Soulfly as well as my love for the heavy, fast stuff I’m into: like death and black metal and some hardcore.

"Working with Josh Wilbur for Soulfly this time around has been amazing. He’s a huge fan and added a lot to the record. I would fight for the fast songs and he would always push me to add more groove. I think in the end we created a really cool mix of songs that covers a lot of ground in my career. Let the Ritual begin!"

Bring Me The Horizon - amo (Album Review)
Wed 30 Jan 2019
Context is a funny thing, isn’t it? In 2007 Bring Me The Horizon were heavy metal outsiders, and they remained so for years. Their inventive brand of electronic-tinged deathcore was pooh-poohed and dismissed by die-hard metallers despite making Slayer sound soft, while in other quarters they were outright despised.
