SOULFLY‘s tenth studio album, “Archangel”, will be released on August 14 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was produced by Matt Hyde, who has previously worked withSLAYER and CHILDREN OF BODOM. The cover artwork was created by artist Eliran Kantor(TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM) and can be seen below.
“I am so proud to be releasing SOULFLY‘s tenth album,” comments SOULFLY founder/vocalist/guitarist Max Cavalera. “I feel it is my most mystic album since ‘Prophecy’. The guest collaborations have always been a trademark of SOULFLY and ‘Archangel’ is no different! We can’t wait to play this live for the worldwide tribe!”
In regards to the band and the album cover, artist Eliran Kantor states: “I’ve been a fan of Max‘s music ever since discovering ‘Beneath The Remains’ in high school. When my wife and I got married, ‘Territory’ was even played at the dance party part of our wedding.
“Max asked me to do a traditional piece depicting Archangel Michael — and I tried to go beyond the straight-up neo-classical style as that has been perfected centuries ago, so I mixed in SOULFLY‘s own visual world: hence the wings and spear being shaped like theSOULFLY tribal icon, the cliff with the ocean view just like on the first record, and the Brazilian flag being the core of it’s color scheme.”
