Die legendären brasilianischen Extreme Metaller SOULFLY haben das Cover des kommenden Studioalbums »Savages«, das am 4. Oktober über Nuclear Blast Entertainment erscheint, veröffentlicht.
Das Artwork wurde vom renommierten Künstler Paul Stottler entwprfen, der bereits für das legendäre Cover für SACRED REICHs »Surf Nicaragua« verantwortlich zeichnete. Des Weiteren kommentiert Bandkopf und Metal-Ikone Max Cavalera das Album wie folgt: “Recording »Savages« was an amazing experience for me. I was so excited to work with Terry Date, whom I consider to be one of the best producers of all time. He has done some great records and we have been in contact for awhile since he mixed three SOULFLY albums in the past. He came to see SOULFLY whenever we played in Seattle, and we finally made it work that he would be the producer for »Savages«. My teammates were awesome. Marc did some crazy guitar noises and we did a 'Mars Part Two' at the end of 'El Comegente' - it's very LED ZEPPELIN influenced and Marc kicked some ass on it. I wrote 'El Comegente' with Tony Campos. It's in Portuguese and Spanish and it's about Vargas - a Venezuelan cannibal from the 80's. He is the Hannibal Lecter of the Andes. Crazy shit! I worked for the first time on a full album with my son, Zyon. Before recording the album I first worked closely at home with him in preproduction, and it was great to spend weeks on the songs with Zyon, shaping the sound of the record. Zyon did a great job and he hits really hard just like his uncle Iggor - it was amazing recording with my son. A whole record! A dream come true for a father whose life is dedicated to metal. »Savages« is a celebration of all that.” Max Cavalera »Savages« wurde vom Soundguru Terry Date (PANTERA, DEFTONES, WHITE ZOMBIE) produziert und gemischt und wird als Limited edition digpack CD, 2LP Vinyl und Digital Download erscheinen.
 »Savages« wird zudem mit einigen Gast-Sängern aufwarten: Bassist Tony Campos, Max Cavalera's Sohn Igor Cavalera (LODY KONG), CLUTCH's Neil Fallon, NAPALM DEATH's Mitch Harris und Jamie Hanks von I DECLARE WAR. Lest hier, was die Gastsänger zu ihren Auftritten auf »Savages« zu sagen haben: "I was super pumped when I got the call to add vocals to 'Bloodshed'. It's badass that Nuclear Blast chose it as the first single.“ Igor Cavalera (LODY KONG) "It was pretty incredible working with heavy metal legends like Max and all of SOULFLY." Jamie Hanks (I DECLARE WAR) “I am stoked to have been asked by Max to participate on the 'Ayatollah Of Rock 'N' Rolla' track! Max brought CLUTCH out on some of our earliest and most formative tours and this brought back some very fond memories of singing with Max all those years ago.“ Neil Fallon (CLUTCH) „It was an honor for me to finally collaborate on a song with Max and co. It's something we've been talking about for the last 9 years. I've always felt like part of the Cavalera extended family, and for me it was a truly uplifting, comforting and memorable experience after say 26 years or so. We ran through all the takes together, trying to capture the carnal energy, the push and pull between force and action. Friction, charisma, and something true directing the sole intent of the message, that was my general angle on it. Art and expression are about capturing the moment, the essence of a connection between like-minded souls, expanding on concise ideas that start small and end up big.“ Mitch Harris (NAPALM DEATH) “Getting to share vocals with Max on "El Comegente" was great.
