Soulfly, Arizona’s sensational heavy metal artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
The band was formed in Phoenix in 1997 and it currently consists of Max Cavalera (vocals and rhythm guitar), Marc Rizzo (lead guitar), Mike Leon (bass guitar), and Zyon Cavalera (drums). Over the years, their musical style has spanned many genres such as groove metal (a subgenre of heavy metal that takes the intensity and sonic qualities of thrash metal and plays them at mid tempo, with most bands making only occasional forays into fast tempo), thrash metal (an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression, frequent use of fast percussive beats and low register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding style lead work, and lyrics often dealing with social issues and reproach for The Establishment), death metal, and nu metal (a form of alternative metal that combines elements of heavy metal music with elements of other music genres such as hip hop, alternative rock, funk, and grunge). They’re also known to incorporate elements of world music (such as tribal music and Middle Eastern music into their sound). They’ve had a stellar career with 10 studio albums, 1 video album, 1 extended plays, 12 music videos, and 23 singles.
Don't miss your chance to see these artists add a unique touch to groove metal, thrash metal, death metal, and nu metal!
