    Soulfly fire Marc Rizzo, hire Dino Cazares for upcoming tour.

    https://blabbermouth.net/news/Soulfl...sonal-reasons/

    Odd turn of events. Marc Rizzo is a great overall player, so it's a shame Max let him go.

                Yeah, I mean Dino is a great rhythm guitarist no doubt. But playing leads....

                  Seems there's much more to the story on why Rizzo left or was "fired"



                  MARC RIZZO Says He 'Got No Support From SOULFLY' During Pandemic, Not Even A Phone Call




                  "Asked if it's fair to say that his decision to exit SOULFLY was based on a financial issue, Marc said: "I would say that was one of [the issues] — for this year, yes. There were years that were good financially, but this year — again, there was no loans, there was no, 'Hey, let's do a live video to make money for the bandmembers or maybe let's do a special merch deal.' A lot of my friends, they were doing special merchandise deals. I mean, if you look online, SOULFLY didn't do anything for the bandmembers or the crew. It's just not right to do that to people during a time like this."


                  "Rizzo also confirmed that he hasn't had a conversation with Max since they last saw each at the final pre-pandemic SOULFLY show nearly a year and a half ago. "I haven't talked to Max since [March] 2020 when we played the Hell & Heaven festival in Mexico," he said. "I had no contact with him. I don't think he has a phone, so it's not like I can call him."

                    :wtf: Max has no phone? Did he write "tribe" because he's gone off-grid or "back to the roots" with the indigenous?

                    My parents had no phone in the house until after I left home, and no landline until years after that. Maybe Max thinks Rizzo should have been writing letters at least weekly, as I was supposed to?

                      Sounds more like a job than a band.

                        Between this thread and the Mudvayne one, I'm not sure which one has me on the edge of my seat more.

                              Granted that Max hasn't been thrashy since Arise (though the first Cavalera Conspiracy album is good), there were hints that Soulfly were going back to it.



                              Ok, dumb lyrics are dumb, but lyrics were never Max's strong suit either.

                                No, they really weren't.

                                As I queued at the vaxx centre, I got this stuck in my head:

                                BioNTech!
                                BioNTech!
                                BioNTech!
                                Is godzilla!
                                Rrrrrawww!

                                Seriously, an earworm that would not go away. :noplease:

                                  MC's time in Sepultura is fucking legendary and Under Siege is one of the best thrash live albums ever.

                                  Dude has also been a joke for a long time now, well before his crazed wife posted her expose on how she knew about 9/11 before it happened, which truly must be seen to be believed. One of the worst wife-managers in rock/metal history.

                                    The only logical explanation for Soulfly's existence is "a pair of soiled, discarded cargo shorts found at the grounds of Woodstock 1999 brought to life by an evil wizard"

                                    The vocals are like a Bollywood cover of Fred Durst.

                                      Max's lyrics are the most cringe-worthy in all heavy metal. It's like they've been written by a 14 year old who's been created in a lab where his only sustenance is an artificially-induced angst serum.

                                      Walkin down da street
                                      I see all da bad fings
                                      Dey makin me so mad
                                      It's all bad and stuff
                                      RAAARRRGHHH

                                        Putting a bit of context here but Max has barely any formal education. He had his life turned upside down at the age of 9 when his father died. They went from Mid Class to basically poverty... and what you think of Low Mid Class in the rest of the World (or Europe and USA) is considered rich people in Brazil. His family had to move and all live in the backyard of his grandmother and they all had to get jobs to survive.

                                        Sepultura was made on this. The Anger and Rebellion of youth with barely any hopes living in an extremely violent country with huge Police brutality. They were getting expelled from all the schools they were in. They had no idea how to speak English so all the lyrics were written in Portuguese and then direct translate by someone that knew a bit more. They were really your typical "rough hood kids" doing music without the means of even having Instruments to play with. Paulo got into the Band because he had a nice bass not because he knew how to play it. Their first album the guitars are not even in tune with each other, they didn't knew how to properly tune them, they just wanted to play and record. In Schizophrenia Iggor played the double bass drum parts with his hands since he didn’t even have a proper drum kit.

                                        You can clearly see a difference in attitude on Andreas Kisser and even Paulo . They comes from a very different background and it totally shows when they speak.

                                        Sure this is not an excuse so many years later, but we as grown ups are totally affected by our youth. Max never let that anger and way of thinking and it worked for him all these years. Yes he stopped and doesn't seem to have grown "mentally" wise. I cringe every time he screams No More Corporate Bullshit!!!.. Sure it was cool when you are 18 but not when you are 50's but he will always be like that.

                                          Oh believe me, the context is fully recognised. It made sense in Sepultura. And wasn't that bad at all.

                                          Soulfly on the other hand...

                                          He'd been doing it for years at this point. His point of reference would have changed, or so you'd think. But it's like they got worse, more simplified, less thoughtful.

                                          Not surprising since the guy can't even be bothered to play guitar any more. It's bad enough he takes two strings off the fucking thing, but he doesn't even play it for 90% of a show.

                                            He kinda became one of those "Rasta/Reggae" concert dudes with all the Love and Bro's talk...This is also a very typical "Latin" way of life hence the cringe "Tribe" thing... In Sepultura they were teens and young adults, in Soulfly not anymore. So I get what you wrote totally. Still the man still keeps coming up with riffs after riffs after riffs after all these years and he really doesn't need more than 4 strings ahaha. Imagine if Djent dudes did the same though... one string guitar and 2 frets

                                              Yeah, I guess at the time when Soulfly came out, it was more of a "statement" to take two strings off. A symbolic "death to guitar solos!"

                                                  Wasn't he already doing the four-string thing years before Soulfly?
