Album: EnslavedReleased: 2012
This is a track from Enslaved
, the eighth studio album by the Metal band Soulfly. It was recorded in late 2011 in Tallcat Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and produced by frontman Max Cavalera
along with Zeuss. The record was released March 13, 2012.
The album has a concept of slavery. Speaking with Noisecreep
, Cavalera explained why: "I actually first had the idea 15 years ago and it seemed like a powerful Metal concept. What has happened to people over the years, the brutal behavior that has been thrust upon people, it involves just so much pain and struggle. I remember reading a poem in an old book, a cry for justice from someone being owned and abused, a slave, and my mind just took off from there. I want people to pay attention to the lower tunings on this new album – the tone and the feeling of those tunings really lends to this concept."
