Guitairst Marc Rizzo Officially Out of Soulfly

0

After several days of rumors, guitarist Marc Rizzo has confirmed his departure from Max Cavalera’s Soulfly.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Soulfly would soon be touring with Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares in place of Rizzo. Rumors of Rizzo’s departure from the group after eighteen years heated up the next day, when the guitarist launched a new project, Hail the Horns.

Rizzo finally verified his split with the band during a Facebook Live chat on August 5, at which time he also implied his leaving Soulfly may have something to do with feeling that his work for that group has been improperly credited:

“I’m just going full forward with my solo project. It’s just better for me. It’s more of a healthier environment for me and my family. And being home more, and do my solo project, which I’m super stoked about. I’ve also got [my new band] Hail the Horns. We’re releasing the video that we did for a Kiss cover today. I’ve got Revenge Beast. I’ve got Acoustic Vendetta. Things are good. And I’m doing a lot of good shit. I’m going full forward with my solo project. That’s really where my heart is at, where I get my writing credit, where I get credit for my work and all my hard work gets proper credit. It’s a healthier environment.”

Rizzo has appeared on every Soulfly album since 2004’s Prophecy. He also plays on all four albums by Cavalera Conspiracy.
