In a recent interview with Germany's Moshpit Passion, Max Cavalera indicated that Soulfly's forthcoming 13th album, expected next year, will hark back to their roots.

"I really liked the early Soulfly stuff because it was more tribal and more groove," he said. "And now because I have Cavalera and Go Ahead And Die... it leaves me Soulfly to be something quite different. I can mould Soulfly a bit different now where Soulfly is really kind of like more of a groove-oriented tribal band. And I think that's really, in a lot of people's perception, the best of Soulfly was like that.

"So, it's not that I'm jumping on the bandwagon of nu metal. It's just that I think that the early Soulfly had some kind of magic that, through the years, we kind of lost. And I think we're trying to bring it back with this new record that is gonna come out next year."

"I think it's gonna be cool because it's also influenced by other stuff I'm listening to at the moment, like Kublai Khan and Jesus Piece and Knocked Loose, Judiciary," he added. "So there's really heavy breakdown grooves together with tribal drums. It's gonna be cool, man. It's gonna be a real cool album that I am very excited to create.

"And, also, the fact that my mother passed away last year, I'm gonna make this album for her. It's a homage to her. So it's gonna be also a spiritual record for me because of that."
