What to Do Tonight: Soulfly

Share on Nextdoor

Former Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera’s once-reviled, now-underrated Soulfly are about to release their seventh album, Omen. The record sounds closer in spirit to the Cavalera Conspiracy’s punky, primitivist thrash (Cavalera’s project with his brother Igor) than to Soulfly’s polyrhythmic and occasionally progressive early material. Omen features guest appearances by Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato and Prong singer-guitarist Tommy Victor. The group is building anticipation for the album, due on May 25, with a tour featuring Prong, Incite and Rotting Corpse. It’s safe to assume Victor will join the group onstage during “Lethal Injection.” But Cavalera doesn’t need any help — he’s made mosh pits explode on his own for 25 years. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. at Peabody’s (2045 E. 21st St., 216.776.9999, peabodys.com). Tickets: $18 advance, $22 day of show. — Phil Freeman
