Soulfly have completed their eighth studio album and expect it to have an early 2012 release. Production duties were handled by Chris Harris – producer of Shadows Fall, Hatebreed and Chiamara. The album is the first to feature new drummer David Kinkade and new bassist Tony Campos (ex-Prong, Static X).
At the time of writing, neither the album’s title or tracklisting have been announced, although it is known that DevilDriver’s Dez Fafara appears on the new disc.
According to an announcement made by the band earlier in the year, the new new material is very heavy “like Sepultura‘s ‘Arise’…on crack and speed“.
