Good morning, ragers. Today’s news might seem a bit schizo, as Soulfly, Suffocation and Battlecross don’t seem at first like the most similar of bands, but they are all touring together and it is sure to be a memorable and awesome trek. I’m listening to Death Angel’s classic “Why You Do This” from the Frolic In The Park re-issue right now and thinking about how metal is really for all kinds of people, so to me this tour seems refreshing rather than a “get people in the door by any means” gambit. Heck, these days bigger bands need to stick together anyway as it not only gives fans more but it is expensive to tour. And it is cool to show more death metal types the groove of Soulfly or the spastic thrash attack of Battlecross can also be cool or for Suffocation to destroy people not used to a band that heavy.

Abnormality and Lody Kong are also along for the US batch of dates, which you can see below.

Nu-thrashers Soulfly have a new lyric video for one of their most ever anthemic songs, the rallying cry “We Sold Our Souls To Metal” from upcoming banger Archangel. Like the recent Cavalera Conspiracy clip for “Babylonian Pandemonium”, this clip features Max Cavalera leading a live assault to crazed metal fans flipping out and keeping the metal faith. Blinding thrash meets a Dead Kennedys-esque bass break to die for and a dizzying bridge, with to the point lyrics and imagery heralding metal’s importance.

Check it out BELOW.

Enough cynicism. Just rock!

This post does not represent the “official” opinion of Metal Riot, just the cynical author.

So, it seems the last decade or so has seen a growing trend in music journalism to be snarky, dismissive or brief. Sure, the UK press has always been snarky. People have always ripped apart bands or movements they don’t like or think are bloated (prog) or talentless (punk). It is a treasured part of rock writing. These days it often seems like the ONLY kind of writing I see out there.

I just read an article ripping apart a pretty good song by This Or The Apocalypse, a metalcore band who actually write songs with current events in mind. While I love the website the critique was posted on and regularly read it (despite it being the most snarky of sites out there), I was kind of disgusted.

Can we please stop the cynical BS and try and make metal and hardcore grow stronger? For a few thoughts. Click HERE.

Soulfly’s Max Cavalera recovering from Bell’s Palsy

Posted by Fireball13 on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 7:25 AM (PST)

Max Cavalera, frontman of Arizona thrash band Soulfly, is recovering from a bout with Bell’s Palsy. This is a temporary condition that is a form of facial paralysis resulting from a dysfunction of the cranial nerve VII that results in the inability to control facial muscles on the affected side.

Cavalera was diagnosed with a case of Bell’s Palsy last week upon his return from Australia. He consulted a doctor and was put on antibiotics. He is improving greatly and is expected to make a full recovery imminently.

Of his recent illness, Cavalera said, “I woke up one morning after coming home from Australia and the whole room was spinning. I looked at Gloria and said, ‘There’s something wrong here.’ She said, ‘Your face looks weird.’ I went to the mirror and couldn’t move half of my face. We thought I was having a stroke, so we rushed to the hospital. I learned my condition was called Bell’s Palsy but I’d never heard of that. It’s a f—ng weird disease. My right eye won’t blink, and half of my face feels like I’ve been punched by Mike Tyson! It hurts like hell. Anyway, I am leaving for Brazil. The show must go on and this Bell’s Palsy ain’t gonna stop a metalhead from his duties. I hope I’ll be ok and thanks to all the fans concerned with me. Stay Metal.”

Soulfly’s upcoming album Enslaved is set to be released on March 13 via Roadrunner Records.
