Underground icon, extreme metal trailblazer, third world warrior, and leader of a diverse and dedicated tribe, Max Cavalera not only survives but thrives, blasting out riff after killer riff. The same spirit which launched SOULFLY in 1997 summons impossibly heavy noise to this day, throwing down ten slabs of monstrous music on the band’s twelfth album, Totem which is set for release via Nuclear Blast on August 5th.

Today, the band releases the album’s second single entitled, Scouring The Vile featuring John Tardy of OBITUARY. Check out the video for the track below or listen on streaming platforms.
