SOULFLY – THE ACADEMY, 1st AUGUST
Max Cavalera returns to Dublin this August bank Holiday on Sunday 1st with Soulfly for what is sure to be another rip roaring headliner at the Academy. The Metal heavy-hitters sold out the venue on their last appearance here in February 2009. Tickets are on sale now priced €24 incl. booking fee.
Soulfly’s seventh album, Omen, stands steeped in tradition. Following the warpath left by 2008’s critically acclaimed Conquer, Omen is a sign of Soulfly becoming an even fiercer, fierier and more furious metallic monster, seven albums into their storied career. Various Soulfly traditions remain upheld over the course of the album’s 11 tracks. Bobby Burns’ bass rumbles and roars on teeth-gnashing opener “Bloodbath and Beyond,” as Joe Nunez commences pure percussive pummeling. Marc Rizzo tears through throat-slitting leads, while still making room to groove on the likes of “Lethal Injection.” Max’s unmistakable vocals and riffs work in tandem for the ultimate aural assault.
