Soulfly, the band led by legendary frontman and guitarist Max Cavalera have released a lyric video for the song Bloodshed. Bloodshed is a track from their upcoming new album Savages that's due to be released on September 30th on the legendary metal label Nuclear Blast Records.
Bloodshed has guest vocals from Max's son Igor (Lody Kong), and it's already been aired on the bands most recent European tour. The video, which you can view below, has a photo journalistic/graphic novel approach to it that depicts various conflicts through the years. Max Cavalera had this to say on the track:
“The song is about the absurdity of the human condition in territories plagued by bloodshed all over the world. Not just recent events like Iraq, but also historical conflicts such as the U.S. Civil War, World Wars I and II, etc.”
The video was created by Tommy Antonini who is the guitarist for Italian Post Hardcore band Tasters.
