Soulfly Drummer David Kinkade talks new album in recent interview
Soulfly drummer David Kinkade discussed the band’s new album today on “The Grindhouse” on Louisiana’s Planet Radio 105.1 (which can be heard here)
Soulfly’s latest album, “Enslaved”, was released on March 13 via Roadrunner Records. The album was recorded at TallCat Studios in Phoenix, Arizona. It was produced by dynamic producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris, who was also behind some of the most popular albums from Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, and The Red Chord among others. Soulfly’s current lineup features founding member Max Cavalera, guitar whiz Marc Rizzo, Static-X’s Tony Campos on the bass, and David Kinkade on Drums.
Unfortunately, Soulfly’s last two albums were met with mixed levels of success. Their last album, titled “Conquer”, premiered with only 8,400 copies sold and entered the charts at no. 66. Their previous album, “Dark Ages” released in October 2005, released with similar numbers, selling 8,000 copies in the first week and entering the charts at number 155.
Soulfly have already released their first video to support the new album. The video for “World Scum” can be viewed below. The concept for the video was created by frontman Max Cavalera and video director Thomas Mignone. Mignone has also directed videos for iconic bands such as Mudvayne, Slipknot, and Avenged Sevenfold, among others. Mignone’s production company, Doom Incorporated, also produced the video. The video, which was filmed around Los Angeles, begins as more of a short film than a music video. The video includes some gruesome imagery including blood, guts, and Jesus Christ battling the Anti-Christ…you know, the usual stuff metal fans expect from their music videos.
The video can be viewed here:
