Biography of Band
|Upon his exit from Sepultura in late 1996, singer/guitarist/songwriter Max Cavalera almost
automatically set out to form his next musical endeavor, the ultra-heavy Soulfly. Besides leaving one of the most popular
heavy metal bands in the world, which he co-founded in the early '80s, he also had to deal with the unsolved murder of
Dana Wells, his stepson and best friend. Using music as therapy to overcome his depression, Cavalera put together a band
that included Roy "Rata" Mayorga on drums (ex-Thorn), Jackson Bandeira on second guitar (ex-Chico Science), while former
Sepultura roadie Marcello D. Rapp rounded out the quartet on bass. Their self-titled debut album was released in the
spring of 1998. Besides fronting Soulfly, Cavalera has branched out into other areas usually not associated with heavy
metal musicians. He became a much-sought-after speaker at music conventions, as evidenced by his appearances at CMJ's New
Music Marathon in New York and Holland's Crossing Boarder Festival, both in late 1997. He also guested on Deftones'
breakthrough album Around the Fur, and signed on to sing a TV commercial for Sprite in his native land of Brazil.
Soulfly's second album, Primitive, was released in the fall of 2000. The album was met with a split reaction, and Cavalera
found himself the object of criticism from factions of his fanbase. The heavy amount of guest appearances and preference
towards nu-metal lyrics were the main complaints, but Cavalera maintained his pride in his work and kept going. He hit the
road and toured behind the album, gaining back drummer Roy Mayorga in the process. The band stepped back into the studio
and recorded III with Cavalera behind the boards, utilizing their individual talents more and stripping away the
guest-friendly atmosphere of the past two albums. The final release appeared in the summer of 2002. Two years later,
Soulfly returned with Prophecy.
