Max Cavalera has to be one of the busiest guys in metal at the moment; balancing three bands. Soulfly’s 10th album, Archangel, continues the barrage of thrash they have perfected over the years. We Sold Our Souls to Metal opens the album in blistering speed and angst followed up by the bone-crushing Archangel. Despite a revolving door of musicians entering and leaving the fold, Soulfly manages to maintain a staunch level of continuity. There aren’t any real surprises with Archangel, but in terms of band progression, album #10 is a step forward for the band compared to Savages and Enslaved. Overall, Max Cavalera shows no signs of slowing down and Soulfly’s Archangel is evidence of that. For a ripping good time…purchase, hit play, and try not to break anything. 3.75 out of 5
