Underground icon, extreme metal trailblazer, third world warrior, and leader of a diverse and dedicated tribe, Max Cavalera not only survives but thrives, blasting out riff after killer riff. The same spirit which launched¬†SOULFLY¬†in 1997 summons impossibly heavy noise to this day, throwing down ten slabs of monstrous music on the band’s¬†twelfth album,¬†Totem¬†which is set for release via¬†Nuclear Blast¬†on August 5th.
Today, the band releases their third single, Filth Upon Filth.  Watch the animated music video created by Costin Chioreanu below or check out the track on streaming platforms.

SOULFLY’s¬†Max Cavalera¬†comments,¬†“Filth Upon Filth was the first track unleashed to the Tribe last year. Costin has created an amazing, savage rendition of the song! This is a song made by a Headbanger, for Headbangers!”

Last month, SOULFLY dropped Scouring The Vile, featuring a guest appearance from Obituary’s John Tardy, and kicked off their album campaign with lead single, Superstition.
