SOULFLY are set to unleash their new album, Ritual, on October 19 via Nuclear Blast. In advance of its street date, the band has shared a new single titled “Dead Behind The Eyes.” The track features guest vocals from Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe and can be streamed HERE.
Vocalist/guitarist Max Cavalera commented in a recent interview with Sweden’s RockSverige: “It was really cool. [Randy is] really tight with [producer] Josh [Wilbur] and Josh has done all the Lamb of God stuff, and he was working on the Burn The Priest record, so I just told Josh to give him the tracks and, ‘Show them to him, and if there’s anything he likes, if he wants to sing on it, it’s all cool.’ I didn’t have a song for him, so he showed him everything and what Josh told me was that they were listening to it, and the minute that song came on, it was nicknamed ‘Bruiser Brothers’, and the minute he heard it, it was, like, ‘That’s it! This is the one! I don’t wanna hear anything else.’ I had already written the lyrics, so I sent him all my lyrics and it was just good to have the Randy voice on it. He’s got a real distinctive voice, really unique and that’s what I like about guys like him. It’s very original and you know it’s him.”
