The Thought-Provoking Poetry of Max CavaleraDefine “overambitious.” From Metal Exiles‘ new interview with Max Cavalera:

Metal Exiles: What do you want the fans to take away from the album?

Max: To analyze where we are. They did a study where they found out that the smartest people did not listen to classical, they listened to metal. The gifted people are the ones who listened to metal. With the lyrics I have penned for this album and my previous ones, maybe I can pick their brains a little bit, make them think.

If you’re not familiar with the lyrics of Soulfly, here are some choice samples…

From “Jumpdafuckup” (Primitive, 2000):

Muthafucka u don’t understand
All my hate!
Muthafucka u don’t understand
All my rage!
Muthafucka u don’t understand
All my pain!
Muthafucka u don’t understand…

From “The Song Remains Insane” (Soulfly, 1998):

Can you take it
Can you take it
Can you take it
Motherfucker

From “Doom” (Conquer, 2008):

Scream Motherfucker…
Scream Motherfucker…
Scream Motherfucker…
Doom…

From “Frontlines” (Dark Ages, 2005):

I don’t give a fuck
You don’t give a fuck
We don’t give a fuck
Get back to the front

From “Bloodshed” (Savages, 2013):

Everywhere is bloodshed
Wasteland bloodshed
Everywhere is bloodshed
Wasteland bloodshed
Bloodshed wasteland
Bloodshed wasteland
Bloodshed

Yup… thought-provoking indeed!
