So this supposed to Max's return with a brand new band backing him, which features the likes of Primitive drummer Joe Nunez, ex Megadeth bassist David Ellefson (splitting duty with ex Primer 55 Bobby Burns), while taking on guitar work with Max is ex Ill Nino Marc Rizzo. But, what I see here is a step back. Lost are all things heavy, even with attempts at bringing back old Sepultura...or even can I say old Soulfly riffs. You just get a mess of left-over non-formed out riffs that lack the heaviness that people have come to expect from someone of Max's stature. Well, to me it's a rush and I guess that's what Soulfly has always been. Never an attempt at solidifying the metal with the new ground, but rushing to bring the new ground forward. If only Max took his time, a lot of the World music is great here. But, there is absolutely no metal here, folks.
