The good news is it’s still the same super-cool live music venue feel with a large stage, big noisy boxes to assault your lugs and flashing lights to make it look all rock ‘n’ roll and that. But BIGGER and with MUCH better viewing, lots of seating, easier parking and access from the station and still in the city centre. Result, really.
All you gotta do is make your way over Ouse Bridge, hang a right at Popworld down George Hudson Street and after 100 metres take the first left at Salvation to go up Tanner Row/Toft Green; we’re near the top. Five minutes. What could be easier.
Armed with Cavalera’s four-stringed guitars, unmistakable growl and instantly recognizable riffage, the muddy tones and constant rhythmic bounce of SOULFLY have retained their gritty edge while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in metal.
Latest album »Savages« represents a career-defining moment, solidifying the line-up with longtime lead guitarist Marc Rizzo (who has been in SOULFLY almost as long as Max was in SEPULTURA), bassist Tony Campos (Static X, Ministry, Prong) and Max’s 21 year-old Zyon, who splits his time between drumming in LODY KONG and now SOULFLY.
With the (May) release of seventh album Omen, Max Cavalera has created an even fiercer, fierier, more furious metallic monster.
