A bit over a week ago we wrote that Max Cavalera, founder of Soulfly, was heading into the studio to start some preliminary stuff stuff on his own for the recording of the upcoming Soulfly release. Also, that he may be producing the effort himself. Well, we have been true to our word. Max has recorded the better portions of three songs, all in demo fashion. Two of the tracks are originals and the third being a cover track of a song called "I Will Refuse" by Pailhead. Word is that these initial demos Max is doing are sick (in a good way). "I cannot even begin to tell you how sick they are," exclaimed someone close to the project. As hinted earlier, Max is looking at possibly producing the new effort on his own, which is the main reason for recording these three demos - so Max can go in and get a feel of the studio. interesting fact - the same cat whom engineered the Nailbomb effort, Otto D'Agnolo, is doing the same in the studio with Max right now. Vocals for the three tracks were said to be completed yesterday (10/03), with mixing taking place over the last couple days of this week. Doubt we'll be able to share these demos with you, but that is what is goin' on right now... Oh, did you know that back in August Max jammed with a band called The Cremains? Word is they are a Navajo Indian band. At a Navajo Indian Reservation in Tuba City, AZ, Max joined them on stage for "Roots" and "Boom". Well, word is there is an invite back, and Soulfly might be heading back to Tuba City for a show on this Reservation come the end of the month. more to come...
