With System of a Down providing politically charged but not preachy lyrics and some actual off-kilter, original songwriting, and Rob Zombie giving us nothing but pure, loud, cornball fun, Soulfly give us the spiritual side of today's metal hey, how many metal albums include a prayer to Saint Michael? Fronted by former Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera, Soulfly strive to be the metal version of Bob Marley, combining positive, thoughtful lyrics with some seriously fierce metal mixed with Soulfly - 3 instrumentation from Cavalera's native Brazil.
The band's excellent album Primitive showed how great they could be, and while 3 has some moments of redundancy, we're still hearing Soulfly's Soulfly - 3 progress steadily towards something really good. Soulfly is simply at its most thrilling when the Soulfly - 3 full-bore into the Brazilian metal territory, and "Brasil" is a phenomenal example.
Yeah, there are the grinding guitars and ferocious drums, but Cavalera also uses layers of wonderful percussion, and a native Brazilian, one-stringed instrument called a berimbau to create a sound entirely original in metal today. In his native Portuguese, Cavalera sings or, more accurately, screams about the current state of Rio de Janeiro's slums, the sins of Brazil's government in the s, urging his homeland to overcome its current hardships and exorcise the past, calling his country, "Brasil, Pais Porrada Brazil, One Woman Man - The Four Tops* - Main Street People Country.
The instrumentals "Soulfly III" and "Zumbi" take Cavalera's musical experimentation to new heights, proving that metal music can expand effectively into other genres, in this case, world music.
Cavalera addresses the September 11 terrorist attacks on the trio of songs "One Soulfly - 3"", and "Call to Arms". It's naively utopian thinking, but it's much better than jingoistic, reactionary songs by country artists like Toby Keith.
In a flash of simple brilliance, Soulfly's one tribute to "" is nothing more than a full minute of complete silence, which, coming from such a loud album, is a real shock, and is most fitting Jah Jah Move - Josey Wales - No Way No Better Than Yard Cavalera had better hope that John Cage doesn't sue.
The album is about four songs too long, and three of those four songs on 3predictably, are the ones lacking originality. The eight-minute centerpiece song "Tree of Pain", yet another tribute to Cavalera's murdered stepson Dana the better "Song Song" appears on Primitive features good vocal work by singer Asha Rabouin, but an appearance by Cavalera's son Ritchie, while heartfelt, distracts from the song, thanks to some Soulfly - 3 bad vocalizing.
Soulfly's journey through both world and metal music is getting closer and closer to the great album they're capable of; Soulfly - 3 Max Cavalera completely embraces that exciting combination of musical styles, and stretches it out for an entire album, the result could really break new ground in the nu-metal genre.
And although Soulfly needs to shorten their albums a touch, and work on more original lyrics, I still look forward to their new CD's every time they come out. Cavalera might be getting a bit too close to repeating himself too much, but Soulfly - 3 that message is one that stresses positive thinking, in a musical genre that seems to be all about anger and misery, personally, I'll never tire of it.

Meanwhile, the proposal of the song "Africa" to be included on Soulfly 3 was cancelled by Max as he's not into Africa stuff, thus he wouldn't want to travel across the Atlantic just to record those tribes for one song. This thought may have inspired his plan to travel around the world to record Quiet Village - El Chicano - Viva Tirado tribes for their next album.
