This is a track from Soulfly's ninth studio album, Savages
. Frontman Max Cavalera
told Live Metal
that the record's title refers to the state of the world right now. "We claim to be sophisticated, and with the Internet and computers, but we're still decapitating each other, chemical-gassing people," he explained, "it's just (savagery). I think the human spirit is still very much a savage, so that's why I thought the name would be cool. I think (savages) is a cool word, a simple word, but it works with the album cover, with the big skull. And we love the stuff that's going to go inside with the record."
"The lyrics, stuff like 'Cannibal Holocaust' and 'El Comegente
,' that deals with serial killers and cannibal people," he added, "I think all together it really works on the level and the whole savagery idea for the whole record."
