Bloody great!

It’s a case of all guts and all gory as Max Cavalera’s Soulfly make a claret-drenched entry with album number seven. And from the off, it’s clear that this is one brutal mother fucker, from visceral and gristly opener ‘Bloodbath & Beyond’ which recalls legendary UK crust-mongers Extreme Noise Terror in the blast-beat crust-punk execution, all the way through to ‘Counter Sabotage’, a right flesh-ripper loaded with pummelling drums that’ll literally beat the living crap outta your ear drums. Prong mainman Tommy Victor makes an appearance on the Prong-alike ‘Lethal Injection’ while closer ‘Soulfly VII’ provides a pensive come-down from the driller-killer action. Bloody great!

Subliminally crushing and psychadelic, 'Ascension' is a stellar effort...
