Touching the Void

  • Heavy Metal pioneers Black Sabbath inspired this seven-minute track. Songwriter and frontman Max Cavalera explained on his record label's website: "Honestly, it's a thank you to Black Sabbath for being Black Sabbath. It's slow doom metal."
  • This track is a collaboration with French dub artist Fedaya Pacha. Cavalera said of working with him: "Fedaya makes dark, really heavy dub—completely different from commercial dub. He did the outro for 'Touching the Void,' and he played a lot of weird instruments. Those little things definitely make this song special when you listen to it."
