Wait a minute….there’s no groove in this groove metal!!!?!


If you've regularly placed a couple fingers on the pulse of heavy metal in the past, oh I don't know, twenty years, you've probably heard this album before. But goddamn if Soulfly doesn't make it look good. To count this album out would ignore the chuggy macho hypnosis it put me in. At a trimmed 40 minutes, it captures a lot of moshpit-friendly goodness in as little time as it can muster.
