Blood Fire War Hate

  • Lyrics
  • Songwriter and frontman Max Cavalera explained on his record label's website that he made a conscious decision to come out of the gates with all guns blazing with this album opener. He said: "I'm excited to open the record with a fast song. Usually Soulfly albums begin mid-tempo, but this reminds me of 'Beneath the Remains.' This song also has one of the biggest hooks I've ever done. I can close my eyes and picture huge festival crowds singing it. When the fast part comes in, it's just war."
  • This features guest vocals from Morbid Angel's frontman David Vincent. Cavalera commented on working with the underground metal hero: "His screaming on that song was off the wall!"
