When Soulfly came through New York last week, we decided it was time for an in-depth look at the band's history - after all, they were first formed 15 years ago, in 1997. So we sat down with Max Cavalera and let him share stories from the band's entire discography. This is the first of four videos, and he talks about the making of the band's self-titled 1998 debut and its follow-up, 2000's Primitive. He discusses the very first Soulfly song he ever wrote (which the band still plays), bringing in guests like Slayer's Tom Araya and Slipknot's Corey Taylor, and much more. Enjoy!

Soulfly tour dates can be found here.

The band's latest album, Enslaved, is available in our webstore.
