Soulfly Bring Maximum Cavalera Experience to New York City With Incite and Lody Kong
It was a family affair as Soufly shook the foundation of Gramercy Theater last night (March 14) in New York City with support from Incite and Lody Kong, as both bands happen to be fronted by his sons.
Soulfly's Max Cavalera showed that father knows best, especially when it comes to metal, as rowdy fans jumped and moshed throughout their entire set.
They kicked off their performance with ‘Plata o Plomo,’ off of their latest disc ‘Enslaved’ while also playing ‘World Scum’ and ‘Revengeance,’ which included special guest appearances by Max's sons -- Incite frontman Richie Cavalera and Lody Kong vocalist Igor Cavalera.
Old school Sepultura fans bounced as Soulfly performed ‘Refuse/Resist,’ ‘Arise,’ ‘Dead Embryonic Cells,’ ‘Straighthate’ and of course ‘Roots Bloody Roots.’ Circle pits also broke out as Soulfly played ‘Back to the Primitive,’ ‘Execution Style’ and ‘Downstroy,’ just to name a few.
Max Cavalera even belted out version of ‘Cockroaches’ and ‘Wasting Away’ from his side project Nailbomb, as well as the track ‘Headup’ which he recorded with Chino Moreno of Deftones.
Guitarist Marco Rizzo’s blistering, face melting, riffs and solos will have your ears ringing the next morning, while Tony Campos did some damage with his thunderous bass lines. Cavalera’s son Zyon was truly a sight to see behind the drums as his precision, speed and pummeling added to the force of Soulfly’s set.
Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal host Jose Mangin even jumped onstage to do the opening part of a song with Senor Cavalera and offered some major gutturals. At the end of the night, fans lost their minds as Soulfly ended their set with a medley of ‘Jumpdaf--kup’ and ‘Eye for an Eye.’
Incite served as support and exploded onto the stage for an impressive set, as they are on the road in support of their latest record ‘All Out War.’ With the force of Richie Cavalera and with his command of the stage and the band's overall killer sound, Incite are definitely a force to be reckoned with.
Igor Cavalera (sporting dyed red hair like his father) opened up the show with his band Lody Kong, who presented a fusion of genres with a foundation based in punk rock. Towards the end of their set,Igor ran into some guitar trouble but he grabbed his mic and continued on with the very stellar performance.
