On August 14th (worldwide) Metal icons Soulfly will release their 10th studio album, Archangel, via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The stunning cover artwork was created by artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, SODOM) for the band’s upcoming dark and atmospheric masterpiece.
”I am so proud to be releasing SOULFLY’s tenth album,” comments 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 the SOULFLY tribal icon, the cliff with the ocean view just like on the first record, and the Brazilian flag being the core of its color scheme.” Archangel was produced and mixed by Matt Hyde (SLAYER, BEHEMOTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM). Check out the track list for all formats and list of guest performers on the album below.
