SOULFLY has entered the studio with producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM, MONSTER MAGNET, WINDS OF PLAGUE) to begin recording its tenth album for a late spring release via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

In a recent interview with SkullsNBones.com, SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera said about the band's upcoming CD: "I need to prepare a really good SOULFLY record for the fans. I really wanna do it killer. And the more time I spend writing the riffs and getting the ideas for the SOULFLY record, the better record it will be. Instead of waiting for the last minute and do it real quick… Hopefully [I can] think of some cool guests to be on the tenth record — the big tenth record. We're gonna try to make some kind of campaign about [it] — ten records; that's quite amazing. But we're gonna try to make a really cool [album]."
He continued: "We've got a really solid band. I love Marc [Rizzo, guitar], [and] I love Tony [Campos, bass]. And it looks like Zyon [Cavalera, Max's son] is gonna drum again for the next CD. So we're gonna kick his ass, [and] try to get [him to be] more in the ball with us. And we'll see how that goes."
SOULFY's ninth CD, "Savages", was released on October 1, 2013. The CD was produced by Terry Date, who is known for his work with such acts as PANTERA, DEFTONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among many others. Guest vocal appearances on "Savages" included SOULFLY bass player Tony Campos, CLUTCH's Neil Fallon, NAPALM DEATH's Mitch Harris, Jamie Hanks of I DECLARE WAR and SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera's son Igor Cavalera (of LODY KONG).
