The official music video for City and Colour’s ‘Lover Come Back’ created by acclaimed music video director, Michael Maxxis, premiered yesterday at Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy.
Soulfly has been releasing a new album roughly every two years since their initial formation back in the mid-late nineties. This is all thanks to the legendary Max Cavalera, who has pretty much dedicated his life to Metal. It has been less than a year since the release of Pandemonium from his other band Cavalera Conspiracy, that was formed in 2007 with his brother Igor Cavalera Jr. Creating new material has become a second nature for Max, and Soulfly fans couldn’t be happier. I am personally thankful that I don’t have to wait five, ten or even fifteen years for a new album. It has been roughly two years since their 2013 release of Savages and with an ever growing style, I couldn’t wait to see what Archangel, the tenth studio album was going to consist of.
If Melodic Metal is your thing then you would possibly dig into this release, your typical melodic hooks are there, straight ahead power metal with the more me-tallish vocals of Boals. Personally I like Mark in this more metal-esque style as opposed to other progressive stuff he has done in the past. The guitar talents of Chen are evident, but I was looking to see more from this guy since he created this band to begin with.
