Eighth full-length studio album by legendary American Groove/Thrash Metal band.
Soulfly, the band led by the legendary Max Cavalera, is back with an album that in many aspects is connected with another epic, Sepultura’s “Roots”. Soulfly incite a musical uprising on "Enslaved". This time around, the Heavy Metal tribe treads extreme territory by incorporating blast beats, violent riffs and wheezing whammy squeals into its patented Groove-driven war cry. All of those elements converge within a concept record about slavery - a first for legendary frontman Max Cavalera. As for the sound, though it has the classic Thrash Metal feeling at the most part of it there exists something akin to Death Metal. The band is more than able to interchange the more melodic parts with the brutal ones and it is aided by the vocal abilities of Max Cavalera. His voice is wrath itself. Fast paced songs, jump-into-the-pit mood, catchy riffs, a check-in-tongue spirit that refuses to quit or to comply make ‘Enslaved’ an essential listening.
Keeping up Soulfly's legacy of collaboration, Cavalera enlisted the help of some other very special guests including DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara & Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation.
It is the first Soulfly’s album to feature Asesino frontman Tony Campos (ex-Static-X) on bass, and former Borknagar drummer David Kinkade on drums.
According to Blabbermouth.net, “Enslaved” sold 5900 copies during the first week of its release in the US, thus reaching number 82 on the Billboard 200 chart.
