Fun fact, especially for all you Deftones fans out there: The name Soulfly was actually taken from the Deftones track “Headup” off of Deftones’ 1997 album Around the Fur. If you go back and listen, Max Cavalera, who lent his vocals on the song, is definitely screaming “soul fly” in the chorus (the more you know!). Anyway, Cavalera and his brother Igor Cavalera started the thrash/groove metal band Sepultura which rose to fame through the 90s. Max Cavalera eventually wound up leaving the band (his brother a few years later too) to start Soulfly in 1997, which has more of a nu-metal flare to it, contrast to the thrash roots of Sepultura. However, on this particular tour, Cavalera and the dudes in Soulfly will be performing as Nailbomb, an early side project of Cavelera’s pre-Soulfly, and will be playing through their only album Point Blank all the way through.
