Soulfly, American Roulette, Chronological Injustice and Betrayed by Weakness


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Sun., Feb. 2, 6 p.m. 2014 All Ages


At this point Soulfly might be tossed off as an oldie by younger, hipper heshers. And that's fine. Frontman Max Cavalera has been at it a long time, and let's just say not all of his post-Sepultura work has been on point. Soulfly's latest offering, Savages, does have some pretty great moments (the album cover art is not one of them). But "Bloodshed" and "Cannibal Holocaust" are absolute slayers. Then there's "Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla" which, despite some stoney guest vocals from Clutch's Neil Fallon, sips and slides in its own silliness. The band has always done its damnedest to remain current (including some ill-advised lapses into nu-metal), but this time around it's all for the better. MARK LORE
