From religious proceedings that date back millennia to daily 21st century routines such as checking social media, humanity gravitates towards ritualistic behavior for the appearance of order and a semblance of control over life's chaos. Perhaps more than any other artform, ceremonious behavior defines heavy metal. Thousands of fans worship at the altar of a speaker or congregate in person for the sermon of a live show. Two decades into their storied career, SOULFLY continue to engender near cultish zeal with each subsequent album and tour. In that sense, the group's eleventh full-length, »Ritual« [Nuclear Blast], lives up to the promise of its name with a metallic ceremony of the highest order. The iconic gold-certified quartet—Max Cavalera [vocals, guitar], Marc Rizzo [lead guitar], Zyon Cavalera [drums], and Mike Leon [bass]—cast their word in bludgeoning riffs, thunderous percussion, and menacing growls. The title proves apropos to say the least. "I've always felt that metal is very ritualistic," affirms Max. "I also like one word titles," he smiles. During 2018, Max and Co. began to prepare this latest body of work. Three years prior, »Archangel« marked something of a rebirth. Its extreme tendencies engendered unanimous critical praise from the likes of Loudwire, Metalsucks, Metalinjection, Blabbermouth, and more as they toured with SOILWORK, DECAPITATED, and many others. Notably, they also performed the classic NAILBOMB debut, »Point Blank«, in its entirety on a much-praised 2017 run. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348414 Gramercy Theater Gramercy Theater
