Watch the two-minute chat below.

As previously reported, the two B-sides from SOULFLY’s “Conquer” recording sessions at the Porch Studio in Orlando, Florida have been made available for streaming at the band’s MySpace page. The songs “Mypath” and a cover of BAD BRAINS’ “Sailin’ On” are available for purchase on the special-edition release of “Conquer” (CD/DVD or digital).

“Conquer” sold around 8,400 copies in the Unted States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 66 on The Billboard 200 chart This number is in line with the opening tally of the CD’s predecessor, “Dark Ages”, which shifted a little more than 8,000 copies during its first week of release in October 2005 to enter the chart at No. 155.

SOULFLY’s latest video, “Unleash”, was directed by Robert Sexton, who has previously worked with MONDO GENERATOR, AMEN and ICED EARTH, among many others. The song is the first single from “Conquer”.
