The experience known as the Gathering of the Juggalos is set to take place this year at Hog Rock in Cave-in-Rock, Ill. on Aug. 7-11.

It may be hard to believe, but Max Cavalera has been in Soulfly longer than he was in Sepultura. Soulfly are hard at work on their ninth studio album, and have released a video documenting its progress. (watch above). It shows the band in the studio and features brief snippets of new music.
