Additional notes
After leaving Sepultura in 1996, Max Cavalera formed Soulfly with the idea of combined sounds and spiritual beliefs after losing his stepson Dana Wells. Originally, with each new Soulfly album came a new line-up, as well as world music influences from a diverse array of locations. Soulfly started playing nu-metal (on the first album and "Primitive") which was extremely popular at the time; recent albums (starting with "Dark Ages") have tended toward a more agressive groove/thrash metal sound with death metal influences. They are also known for mixing their trademark groove metal sound with diverse world music influences such as bossa nova or reggae among others.

In an old interview, Cavalera mentioned Manifesto as previous name for the band.

Bassist Bobby Burns and guitarist Marc Rizzo Bobby assumed vocal duties when Cavalera, being ill, was forced to miss the show from Posten, Odense, Denmark, March 27, 2009. Soulfly played as a trio and Luis Marrufo (Incite) played rhythm guitar on some songs.
