History

Previous lineups

Formation

Brazilian heavy metal songwriter, guitarist and singer Max Cavalera formed the band in 1997, following his split with the legendary Brazilian thrash metal band Sepultura in 1996 and the death of his stepson Dana Wells. The lineup consisted of former Thorn and Nausea drummer Roy Mayorga from New York, guitarist Jackson Bandeira of Brazilian based Chico Science & Nação Zumbi, former Sepultura roadie Marcello Dias from Brazilian based band The Mist on bass, and Cavalera on guitar and vocals.

Prior to forming Soulfly, Max Cavalera made a guest appearance on the Deftones breakthrough album Around the Fur in 1997 on a song called "Headup".

Soulfly

The time during the recording of Soulfly's first album was admittedly troubled for Cavalera, and on the band's website Max Cavalera said that he founded the band "with the idea of combined sounds and spiritual beliefs". As well as leaving one of the world's most renowned thrash metal bands, he had to deal with the death of his stepson and best friend Dana Wells. The first self-titled album, Soulfly, was released in the spring of 1998 and reached number 79 on the Billboard 200.

In addition to fronting Soulfly, Cavalera also branched out into other areas usually not associated with heavy metal musicians. He became a much-sought-after speaker at music conventions, as evident by his appearances at CMJ's New Music Marathon in New York and Holland's Crossing Boarder Festival, both in late 1997, signed on to sing a TV commercial for Sprite in his native land of Brazil, and is a devoted family man and valued member of the Phoenix community.

Soulfly played on the 1998 Ozzfest mainstage alongside Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, and Tool and played small club tours around the world with bands such as System of a Down and Snot.

A variety of unique influences including nu metal appeared on 2000's Primitive, and it was the most successful album by the band in the US reaching number 32 on the Billboard 200 and number 11 on the US independent charts.

In late 2001, Joe Nunez left Soulfly to join Stripping the Pistol, citing that it was "time for [him] to move on". Roy Mayorga departed from his band Medication to rejoin with Cavalera, Doling, and Dias for the recording of the band's third album. 3 was the first Soulfly album which was produced by Max Cavalera. Other musicians performing on 3 included Christian Machado of Ill Niño, Danny Marianino of Arizona based North Side Kings, and guitarist Wiley Arnett and drummer Greg Hall of Sacred Reich, and Max's stepson Ritchie Cavalera.

Current lineup

Prophecy

Cavalera recruited a new lineup in October of 2003 for the recording of Soulfly's Prophecy album. Joe Nunez was back behind the drumkit with New Jersey native Marc Rizzo formerly of Ill Niño on guitar and West Virginia native Bobby Burns formerly of Primer 55 on bass. David Ellefson formerly of Megadeth also contributed on several tracks on bass on the album in an effort to combine old and new school metal ideas on the album.

Max Cavalera explains on the bands website that he wants to use different musicians as part of the group for each album. "This is an approach that I've wanted to do for a while. I never wanted Soulfly to be a band like Metallica, with the same four guys. On every Soulfly album, we've changed the line up and it will probably continue that way. In order to do that, I had to start from the inside out and bring in people who caught my attention, that I had never played with before, and create this."

In Sepultura, Cavalera had shown an interest in world music as shown in Roots, featuring elements of the music of Brazil's indigenous peoples. This approach continued on the Prophecy album with Cavalera traveling to Serbia to record with traditional musicians. On the track "Moses" he works with Serbian band Eyesburn which features reggae influences from one of his heroes, Bob Marley. Other tracks on the album feature instruments from the Middle Ages, sheepskin bagpipes, and Serbian Gypsies. Danny Marianino and Asha Rabouin returned as guest vocalists on Prophecy, as well, and Max Cavalera produced the album. Prophecy was released on March 30, 2004 and in April of that year had reached a peak of number 82 on the Billboard 200, although it has reached the top 50 of the Australian album charts.

Dark Ages

In December of 2004, as recording was beginning for Soulfly's fifth studio album, the band was rocked by several tragedies that strongly effected the outcome of the album. On December 8 Max's longtime friend Pantera guitarist Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott was tragically shot to death while playing in Ohio and on December 10th Cavalera's 8 month old grandson Moses unexpectedly passed away due to health complications. That fall, on October 4, 2005, Dark Ages was released. Many critics have described Dark Ages as a return to Cavalera's thrash metal roots of the early Sepultura days; however, the world metal influence found on the first four Soulfly albums is still definitely present. In fact, this time, Cavalera traveled to five different countries — Serbia, Turkey, Russia, France, and the United States — in order to record all the sounds that he desired to have on the new album.

The core band on Dark Ages still consisted of Max Cavalera, Marc Rizzo, Joe Nunez, and Bobby Burns, and on this album, Dave Ellefson came back to lend his talents to a couple of tracks, Eyesburn vocalist Coyote sang on "Innerspirit", Stormtroopers Of Death vocalist Billy Milano and Russian singer Paul Fillipenko of FAQ screamed on the hardcore influenced "Molotov", and Max's stepson, Ritchie Cavalera from Phoenix-based band Incite, sang on "Stay Strong".

In the time between legs of Soulfly's world tour for Dark Ages and afterwards, members of Soulfly stayed extremely busy by focusing on projects and activities outside of the band. Max Cavalera guested on the Apocalyptica single "Repressed" with Bullet For My Valentine vocalist Matt Tuck during a visit to Germany, went to Russia in January 2007 to guest on the album Circus Dogs by Russian hardcore band FAQ, played a surprise jam session in Serbia with Dan Lilker of Brutal Truth and S.O.D., and spent time in Arizona writing for future releases. Marc Rizzo spent the year on the road throughout North America playing his solo flamenco-meets-shred metal, gaining him further recognition as one of the world's premier metal guitarists. Earlier in 2005 Marc had released his debut solo album, Colossal Myopia, through Shrapnel Records, and in 2007 he prepared his follow-up, The Ultimate Devotion, which has now been released. Bobby Burns purchased a studio in Orlando, FL with his partner Tim Lau, revived his former band Primer 55, and worked on new releases for his Love Said No and King Street projects. In September of 2006 Bobby suffered a mild stroke, was forced to sit out of Soulfly's North American tour, and his spot in the band was briefly filled by Dave Ellefson and Danny Lilker.

In a recent interview regarding the follow up to Dark Ages, Max had this to say about the new album,

"I have some really exciting songs. I was working with Marc Rizzo, my guitar player. We get along great and love a lot of the same stuff. Bands like early Sepultura, Slayer, Destruction. We also like a lot of grindcore like Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower. We have been writing some stuff like that. We also have some material with a Soulfly vibe and the Soulfly grooves. One thing I like about Soulfly is we have the grooves in between the heavy parts. There are no names yet. I have been joking though as the new material makes Dark Ages sound like a pop album. This new stuff is pretty heavy."[citation needed] Sepultura is a Brazilian thrash metal band, formed in 1984. ... For other uses, see Slayer (disambiguation). ...

The mission continues, stronger than ever. Conquer your fear and you’ll conquer life and death."[citation needed]

Soulfly's self-titled 1998 debut, that paired the band on the road with the likes of Rammstein and thrust them into the Ozzfest spotlight, wasn't born from the most comfortable of circumstances.
In fact, when Soulfly first went into the studio in late 1997, Max was going through the most difficult time he had ever known.
Soulfly was further growth from the territory that Sepultura's Roots explored, fueled with a new enthusiasm and inspiration.
