Nu-metal/thrash outfit Soulfly is the brainchild of Brazilian heavy metal legend Max Cavalera, of Sepultura and Cavalera Conspiracy fame. Combining growling vocals telling stories of spirituality, war, and violence with stomping percussion and thrash-y guitars, Soulfly have built up a worldwide following since their birth in 1997, and have released eight studio albums.
Their eponymous debut album has since been certified gold, and each of their eight albums has charted in the Billboard Top 200 - their sophomore album, the critically-acclaimed ‘Primitive’, peaked at #32, their highest position in the charts.
Having released a new album, 'Savages', in 2013, they hit the road for a full UK tour in July 2014, and joined Sabbath, Soundgarden and Faith No More on a British Summer Time bill too. In July 2015, Soulfly released their tenth album, 'Archangel'.
After a successful 18 months touring their Return to Roots project together with his brother Iggor, playing Sepultura's groundbreaking Roots album and other choice cuts by the legendary band they formed in Brazil back in 1984, Soulfly will play a run of UK shows this summer surrounding their set at Boomtown Fair.
