Max Cavalera's Soulfly are going back to the primitive. In fact, they're 'Savages.' The band has shared the lyric video for 'Bloodshed,' the debut single from the new album, titled 'Savages,' out Oct. 1 on Nuclear Blast. It's their first effort for the new label after a long stint on Roadrunner Records.

About the groove-driven 'Bloodshed,' the lyric video features politically-inspired visuals and war-torn, decaying imagery that remind us of classic, early '90s Sepultura videos. Cavalera said, "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."

In both Sepultura and Soulfly, Cavalera never avoided political topics. In fact, he embraced them, turning one's eye to things they might not want to see. We're glad to see he's not changing horses in midstream on 'Savages,' since this kinetic lyric video follows his career trajectory of spotlighting political and societal issues.
