Total Guitar - - ALBUMS -

Com­ing off the heels of 2015’s mon­strous Ar­changel as well as last year’s Cavalera Con­spir­acy blitzkrieg Psy­chosis, it’s un­sur­pris­ing that Soulfly’s 11th ef­fort sees a slight drop in stan­dards. Yet the full-blooded riff­ing and eerie trib­al­ism the band are known for crush on the ti­tle track and De­mo­nized, with Max’s drum­ming son, Zyon, and the un­der­rated Mark Rizzo play­ing blin­ders, not least on the rapid-fire Bite The Bul­let.

While the ubiq­ui­tous curve­balls don’t al­ways work as well as pre­vi­ous al­bums – the NWOBHM mo­tif of Feed­back! a case in point – the deathly on­slaught of Un­der Rap­ture proves that there’s plenty of life and fire left in Brazil’s finest son.
