Soulfly's sixth offering for Roadrunner Records, CONQUER, may very well be the musical equivalent of the movie Braveheart. The songs much like the warriors in the film channel raw, unbridled rage through a cacophony of thrash guitars, infectious grooves, tribal polyrhythms and Max Cavalera's unmistakable, thunderous roar. On this record, Soulfly unleash a metallic mayhem unlike anything they have done previously. Conquer shifts from unrelenting, precise speed metal to slow, brooding doom. Marc Rizzo's lead guitar rips with the precision of a smart bomb, while Bobby Burns grinds out volatile, chest- caving bass lines. Drummer Joe Nunez crushes behind the kit, forging a rhythmic background for all out sonic war.
