Time to put your earplugs in


Thrash, death and tribal band Soulfly will ratchet up the racket when they play Preston’s 53 Degrees on July 8.

The band, hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, were formed in 1997 and have carved out a niche for themselves in the metal world with their unique blend of influences and string of successful albums.

The band are well known for their lyrics, tackling themes of spirituality, war, violence, aggression, hatred and anger.

Soulfly is led by former Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera, who formed the band after leaving the Brazilian group in 1996. The band has released eight studio albums, and, in 2014, head out in support of new album Savages.

Long-time lead guitarist Marc Rizzo, bassist Tony Campos (Static X, Ministry) and Max’s 21 year-old son Zyon complete the line-up.

The album also features a host of metal scene veterans, including a blistering vocal performance from Napalm Death’s Mitch Harris.

Soulfly incorporate many styles of metal with Brazilian tribal and world music.
