This is the opening track from Omen
, the seventh studio album by the Brazilian heavy metal band Soulfly. Frontman Max Cavalera
described the album's sound to Altsounds.com
: "I think its more a mix of metal and hardcore, kind of really combined both styles, they come together on a lot of parts on the album. The first song ('Bloodbath and Beyond') is very hardcore oriented and its also kinda like death metal/thrash metal kinda style, the style Soulfly went into on Dark Ages
and then went into Conquer
and continues on "Omen
, more of a thrash style."
