Soulfly’s Dark Ages caused the band’s popularity and recognition to soar. Yes, they were already huge before that becaus. el. hey were fronted by the former Sepultura vocalist and songwriting mastermind, Max Cavalera. But before Dark Ages, every single one of Soulfly’s albums sounded completely different from each other; making them one of the most experimental metal bands of the time. But I personally think that Soulfly’s signature sound that everyone knows today was solidified and bolted to the ground with Dark Ages. Dark Ages is one of the darkest and angriest albums ever made. Not only did this solidify Soulfly’s signature sound that everyone knows today, it also caused Soulfly’s (already) massive fame to EXPLODE. I would give this 18/20.
Image of a dead man Nails struck through his hands Is this really something That a child can understand? Plastic crucifixion Of a Christ who whas been killed Hanging on your beadside Playing on your guilt. Accept as being normal This sick perverse idea Of a heaven we should strive for And a hell that we should fear. Intimidated by the church We grovel on our knees Begging for forgiveness And hope Almighty Lord is pleased So they told me about Jesus How he died for all our sins While millions throughout history Have been suffering for "him".
